A world champion at the fourth and final attempt, he shared an audience of 80,000 at Wembley with Carl Froch, had a bitter feud with James DeGale, worked with Adam Booth, Paddy Fitzpatrick and Shane McGuigan and was involved in a fight that left Eduard Gutknecht with life-changing injuries. He also fought Chris Eubank, Callum Smith, Martin Murray, Badou Jack, Kenny Anderson and a host of other leading names.  Promotionally, he's worked with Frank Warren, Eddie Hearn, Hayemaker, Kellie Maloney, Golden Boy, the Sauerlands and Mayweather Promotions and here, the father of two talks about the old as well as the new challenges that lie ahead after boxing.

Chronic Pain, CBT, Stoicism and Marcus Aurelius
Donald Robertson is a Cognitive Behavioural psychotherapist and author of ‘How to Think Like a Roman Emperor and ‘Stoicism and the Art of Happiness’ He explains the origins of stoicism and its importance as a philosophy in the world today supporting emotional resilience. As a hugely experienced and knowledgeable CBT psychotherapist Donald also explores cognitive theory and the separation of the emotional response and the physical experience of pain for those who suffer from chronic pain. This is an all-absorbing and fascinating insight into both stoicism and CBT and that has something for everyone who wants to understand more about the ways to take a problem-solving approach to their chronic pain.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Cognitive theory is all about the ways our values and beliefs shape our responses. if you can take greater responsibility and ownership for the things you can control then you will be more adaptive and healthier. The language used to describe emotions is very simplistic and this can prevent us from distinguishing between different elements of chronic pain. Thoughts and feelings are intertwined and when you are able to articulate your underlying beliefs and patterns of thinking you are able to begin to ask yourself is this actually true? When you recognise that feelings are thoughts something magical happens that means you can access a huge range of cognitive protocols. If you are focusing on and thinking about a particular pain it can seem amplified For those individuals who believe and are aligned with stoicism, it  can offer clients something that CBT or any other type of psychotherapy can’t ever offer them Stoicism can offer something far bigger and far more radical to the individual, a philosophy for life. CBT is diagnosis-specific whilst stoicism approaches things in a more a generic way. In psychology, there is a distinction made between emotional coping and practical problem solving coping. You can either deal with the external problem or how you are responding to it. If you have to live with pain then you may as well learn to live with it wisely. Separating the emotional response is key in being able to problem-solve to cope with pain.   BEST MOMENTS ‘When talking to yourself about your pain being as objective and factual as possible is beneficial’ ‘Stoicism is a philosophy but CBT is a therapy’ ‘It’s amazing that this was thought about 2000 years ago and is being used now’   VALUABLE RESOURCES The Back Pain Podcast The Back Pain Podcast recommended products affiliate link Donald website https://donaldrobertson.name Donald’s Courses https://learn.donaldrobertson.name All Donald’s Publications https://learn.donaldrobertson.name/p/publications/ HOW TO THINK LIKE A ROMAN EMPEROR https://amzn.to/33k0Cbm Stoicism and the Art of Happiness https://amzn.to/3nXmSzA
