Season 3 Premiere Brenley Shapiro
It's finally here... our OFFICIAL Season 3 Premiere! This is sure to be one of our best episodes yet, as William and Maddy invite on Brenley Shapiro, Mental Performance coach for the Arizona Coyotes (NHL) and the Peterborough Petes (OHL)! To start off the show, Brenley shares how she maximizes her own mindset in order to have a successful career in her field. She shares her own unique path for going into the field of sports psychology through a passion for sport and her own experiences in her general counselling practice. Brenley also remarks on the weight of expectations that athletes face from a very young age, which she was determined to help succeed, and she reveals the framework and process behind what goes into helping each athlete she encounters. Additionally, Brenley reflects on the past year with the Coyotes and the experiences with virtual-only interaction. She highlights the differences in mindsets between professional and junior players, and she shares some very valuable pointers for students in preparation for the 2021-22 school year at the end of the show. We think it's one of the most important segments of this episode- trust us. Thank you Brenley for joining the show and taking the time to speak with us! Keep in touch with the podcast on social!
