Angela Patmore Book and Novel

Angela Patmore - Author


Angela Patmore is a former Guardian columnist on sports psychology and a regular contributor to press and television features on stress. She served on Sir John Stevens' Metropolitan Police Stress Experts' Advisory Group and her expose, The Truth About Stress, was shortlisted for the 2007 MIND Book of the Year Award. Her previous books include Sportsmen Under Stress (a 1986 Times Sports Book of the Year) and Marje: The Guilt and the Gingerbread. From 2003 to 2006, Angela Patmore worked as a life skills trainer within the Employment Service, using a mental skills programme that provides the basis for this book. The results speak for themselves: despite many of the trainees having serious social and mental health issues, during her tenure the company had not only the best outcomes record in the region, but a better record than all of the other training providers combined.
