Hi who am I and what do I do?
I have always enjoyed sport and been interested in how athletes cope with the demands and mental challenges of their game. As a teenager my dream was to become a professional ballet dancer but injury prevented this. Later in life I became a personal trainer and yet again injury and a lengthy rehab program led me to focus on the mental aspect of performance.
I specialize in helping my clients improve their performance in sport and business, so that they can get over set-backs and mistakes, stop holding themselves back so they can move forward with increased self-belief, confidence and motivation.
Who do I work with?
I work with junior (aged +16), senior and veteran athletes in both amateur and professional sport. With 18 years experience I still love being able to help clients make positive improvements to their performance both on and off the ‘pitch’.
Strong self-belief and confidence are vital to coping better with anxiety, stress and life’s challenges, so that you can
- step outside your comfort zone
- create a more positive mindset
- feel more in control with more mental skills
- achieve your goals
- enjoy your game and your life
I have MSc in Psychology and also Sport Psychology. Currently doing my Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at University of West of England and my work with clients is based on current evidence-based sports-psychology research. During the last 18 years I have worked with athletes from many different sports both in UK and in the Middle East for help with a range of issues including:
- performance anxiety
- generalized anxiety
- relationship difficulties
- depression and lack of confidence
- career transition
Business: I have worked with teams and individuals in small to international companies and government departments in the UK and Middle East for help with
- understanding and maximizing team dynamics
- fear of presentations
- lack of confidence
- the importance of the cultural fit
- employee engagement and motivation
- recognizing just who is in your team
