Hello, I’m Dr Allan Johnston

I believe every person can have mental health

Much like the physical exercise we do to keep the body fit and healthy, there are actions that we can all take to keep our brain in shape and develop mental fitness. When both the body and the mind are working in unison in a positive way, that’s when we feel and achieve our best.

Please take a look around my website. I aim to share advice and tools here that can support you and your team. Thanks and best wishes,

Mind : Sports : Evolution

The world of sports has evolved

From the first recorded Olympic Games in 776 BCE, dedicated athletes have grown in strength and agility, inspiring and entertaining countless people.

Our understanding of the importance of mind-set in sport has since progressed. It is beginning to be recognised as equally important to performance as physical health and ability.

Now, with the topic of mental health being spoken about more openly in the press, by professional athletes and the general public, Mind Sports is evolving.

As part of my role in sport psychiatry, I aim to further reduce the stigma attached to the topic of mental health, to make support more accessible and to continue the advancement of the Mind Sports Evolution.

Gold medal-winning Team GB Sprinter

Working with Dr Allan was so beneficial but more importantly, very enjoyable. He gave me the skills that enhanced my athletic performance but also regain confidence and happiness away from the track and in my personal life. After years of injury, working with Dr Allan helped me back to competition and back to myself – I’m so grateful for this!

Dr Allan has played such a key role for me. He’s not just been amazing at helping me deal with situations and seeing things from a different perspective but he’s also given me the confidence in myself and tools to deal with so many situations. I would recommend him to everyone. He’s played a key role in my recovery and success.
