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’.  I also work with those in business, who want to achieve more in both their personal and professional lives.

  • feel more in control with improved mental skills
  • achieve your goals
