THE England football team’s new psychologist will focus on helping players recover from nightmares about John Terry.
Dr Steve Peters will conduct individual and group sessions where players can detail their particular John Terry nightmare in a ‘safe and supportive environment’.
Although Terry has retired from international football, the FA believes that without psychological support he will continue to be a harrowing part of of the England set-up.
As well as talking and sharing, the therapy will involve camomile infusions, painting with water colours and very large soft toys.
Meanwhile, while each player will be asked to create a ‘happy place’ where John Terry does not want to overpower them in a Jacuzzi.
An FA spokesman said: “It’s very difficult to take a penalty against Germany when all you can think about is a half-naked John Terry asking asking if you’ve ever been shaved by another man.”
