UCFB welcomed former Burnley and QPR footballer Clarke Carlisle to its iconic Wembley Stadium campus for the latest instalment of its Executive Guest Speaker Series.

The ex-pro-turned TV pundit spoke at length with students about the use of psychology in professional sport and his own personal and very public battle with depression.

Clarke, the former Chairman of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA), discussed the stigma that still exists around professional footballers using psychologists, the skills sport psychology graduates from UCFB should take into the industry and the progression of psychology methods in professional sport.

Following his lecture Clarke, a UCFB Tutorial Coordinator, spoke at length with UCFB about the role of a sport psychologist.
