About me

I have always enjoyed sport and been interested in how athletes cope with the both the  mental challenges of their game and also the everyday life-stressors.  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 have been a Clinical Solution-Focused Hypnotherapist  since 2003, with an  MSc in Psychology and MSc in Sport Psychology. I am currently doing my Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at University of West of England and my work with clients is based on current evidence-based psychology and sport psychology research.

Who do I work with and what do I help them with? I see clients  from many walks of life but have a special interest in athletes.  I work with junior (aged +16), senior and veteran athletes in both  amateur and professional sport.  With 19 years experience I still love being able to help clients make positive improvements and achieve more in both their personal and professional lives.

During the last 19 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

  • fear of injury and re-injury
  • career-ending injury
  • career transition
  • anxiety
  • stress
  • anger issues
  • relationship difficulties
  • depression and lack of confidence

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
  • enjoy better relationships
  • feel more in control with improved mental skills
  • achieve your goals
  • enjoy your game and your life
