Gills Youngsters Enjoy Psychology Workshops

Players from the Gillingham FC Academy and their parents recently took part in a series of psychological workshops delivered by Claire Noyelle, who is an Associate Clinical Hypnotherapist at Inspired to Change.

Claire used a wide variety of practical and theoretical activities throughout each workshop to ensure that players and parents were included and engaged throughout their time with Claire.

Claire delivered a range of workshops on topics such as:

  • An Introduction to the Human Brain (U9s/U10s)
  • An Introduction to Psychology (U11s-U14s)
  • Sleep Optimisation (U15s/U16s)

The players, parents and staff were all said to have found the workshops invaluable.

Nick Farrell, Gillingham’s Player Care Manager said: “When I walked into the Under 9’s session and one boy in Claire’s session is wearing a wolf mask whilst the others are all sitting there laughing, including Claire, I could see that Claire had broke the ice and got the boys gripped. The staff are still using some of Claire’s phrases to the boys to support them as best they can by using things that they picked up from Claire’s sessions. At Gillingham FC Academy within our life skills sessions, we aim to provide learning opportunities on and off the field for life to the players, staff and parents. Claire’s session gave us a great opportunity to provide that. ”
