As a professional rugby player for the Melbourne Rebels, Tom English is no stranger to the pressures of high performance sport.
“Pressure coexists with professional sports. Coming through the sporting system you are always under pressure to make the team, perform and keep the others at bay. As you develop as an athlete the pressures evolve. Media exposure, money and individual and public expectation can impact on your stress levels and mental well being. Having a healthy mind is a huge part of ensuring your physical performance is optimised.”
