"Unintentionally we get in our own way…  It's all about getting out of your own way and letting your body do what it's perfectly capable of doing already." ~ Nick Wignall 

ABOUT THE GUEST: 

Nick is a clinical psychologist, writer, teacher, and podcaster. Everything he write about comes down to one big principle: Emotional health comes from good habits, not just nice ideas.

It’s popular to talk about emotional intelligence but what Nick is really interested in is emotional fitness.

Nick did his doctoral training in clinical psychology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Prior to that, Nick earned his Master’s in Social Sciences from the University of Chicago and a Bachelor’s in English Literature from the University of Dallas.

He is board certified by the American Board of Professional Psychology, a Diplomate of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy, as well as a member of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies.

"In a sense the pursuit of happiness and meaning, purpose, the way it gets framed out from a practical perspective sounds selfish. What it does to the human being along the way actually isn’t completely unselfish.

"Friendships can be a strong facilitator of flow. But it depends how we navigate those friendships and what we do… There are ways in which time with friends can massively enhance flow. Identify the healthy activities in which you become most absorbed and most utilize your character strengths and look for opportunities to do those with people you have relationships with." ~ Jonathan Beale

ABOUT THE GUEST:

Dr Jonathan Beale is Lead Researcher and Teacher of Philosophy at Sevenoaks School, & an Academic Visitor at St Antony’s College, University of Oxford. He is also a Visiting Research Fellow in Philosophy at the University of Hertfordshire; a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts; and a Research Fellow for ‘BrainCanDo’ – an educational neuroscience research centre. He’s previously held positions as Researcher-in-Residence at Eton College (2019-21) and Fellow in Philosophy at Harvard University (2011-13). He is the co-editor of three books for Routledge: Wittgenstein and Scientism (2017), The ‘BrainCanDo’ Handbook of Teaching and Learning (2020) and Wittgenstein and Contemporary Moral Philosophy (2022). He has published articles on education and philosophy in academic journals and media outlets including The New York Times, and has given invited talks at universities including Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, UCL, Sheffield, Yale, Ottawa and Zaragoza, and for organizations including the Royal Society of Arts.

 

Dr. Brent Hogarth is a Sport and Clinical Psychologist from Vancouver, Canada. He is an expert in training flow-state, mindfulness, and self-control for both sport and corporate athletes.

Brent has significant training and experience providing performance enhancement and mental health counseling. This includes, but is not limited to, working with Olympic and professional athletes, serial entrepreneurs, members of the USA military, computer engineers, authors, hedge fund managers, and more. Brent's clinical counseling experience is vast, and he sees everyone as having the ability to be a high-performer. He completed his doctoral fellowships at the University of Texas, at El Paso, and at Lehigh University, in Bethlehem, PA. In both of these placements, Dr. Hogarth worked with Division 1 student-athletes, their teams, coaches, and athletic admin.

Before entering graduate school, Brent earned an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology. After a short stint as a fitness trainer, he traveled to India where he lived in a Buddhist Monastery and completed a Yoga Teacher Training Course. It was at this moment - sitting in meditation on the hills of McLeod Ganj, India - that Brent committed to becoming a psychologist.

Dr. Hogarth is a Humanistic-Existential psychologist. His theoretical orientation is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). ACT uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment and behavior change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility. Psychological flexibility means contacting the present moment fully and based on what the situation affords, changing or persisting in behavior in the service of clients chosen values.

Brent is an avid athlete and aspiring author.  He represented B.C in gymnastics as a youth, loves to ski (ask Steven if he's any good), and plays basketball. Recently he completed a full Ironman and is training for his first 100-mile ultra marathon. He is currently building on his breakthrough dissertation - Shining Light on the Dark Side of Flow: is Mindfulness in High-Flow-State Athletes Predictive of Improved Emotion-Regulation and Self-Control? - into his first book.
