Dr Steve Peters is a consultant psychiatrist and has worked in the clinical field of psychiatry for over 20 years. He holds degrees in mathematics and medicine, a Masters in medical education and post-graduate qualifications in sports medicine, education and psychiatry.
Dr Peters has created a mind model for teaching people to understand how the mind works in practice to maximise performance. His Chimp Model can work for anyone from any walk of life. His book, The Chimp Paradox, brings his work to a wider audience for the first time and it is the author’s hope that everyone who reads this book will benefit from it.
He has been the resident psychiatrist with the British Cycling team since 2001 and now also the Sky ProCycling team. His mind management techniques have been credited with helping to transform the performance of Britain’s elite cyclists, and contributing to bringing home 14 medals from the Beijing Olympics, eight of which were golds, and many more from London 2012.
