Richard Fryer is one of the outrageously awesome people we've had the pleasure of meeting since commencing our MPhil at the University of Queensland's School of Sport Sciences (more on this here).
A registered psychologist in both Australia and the United Kingdom, Richard specialises in high-performance sport, from water polo to skeleton to archery — where he's now Archery Australia Inc.'s National Lead — to almost everything in between. Adding another string to his bow (we couldn't resist 🤦), Richard also acts as the Senior Cognitive Performance Specialist for the Royal Australian Air Force. All this to say, he knows a thing or two about performing under pressure.
Here, we speak to Richard about Acceptance Commitment Therapy, auditions, and his personal peak performance practices.
