What we do
Sport and Thought concentrates on engaging the individual with the football in an attempt to bring an internal structure to what is otherwise a chaotic state of being.
Who we are
Sport and Thought was created by, psychodynamic counsellor, Daniel Smyth. Daniel’s work has been recognised at governmental level on two separate occasions.
Where we work
The Sport and Thought programme is currently running in 13 institutions across London, working with hard to reach adolescents experiencing both emotional and behavioural difficulties.
I enjoyed doing Sport and Thought. The activities were very good and we were always encouraged to take our time and to slow down which has kind of related to my stay at Cygnet hospital Godden Green, because if I had tried to rush myself instead of taking my time I probably would of spent longer here...
