Do you ever…..
…want to clarify your sporting goals and work out how to get there?
…want to ‘think about what you are thinking’ in a sporting context?
…want to STOP thinking when you compete?!
…want to perform as well in matches as you do in training?
....want to be able to concentrate for longer and focus with more intensity?
…want to prepare for an important match or tournament?
…want to manage a specific issues?
…want to get less stressed and worried before, during and/or after a game?
…want to stop beating yourself up/ putting yourself down when you perform?
…want to develop your ‘whole’ self – an athlete and a human with a real life?
…want to do something a little different?
…want to look at sport from a different angle?
"BODIES DO NOT COMPETE, PEOPLE COMPETE - WITH THEIR BODY, MIND AND EMOTIONS", Joseph O'Connor
"BE TRUE TO THE GAME, BECAUSE THE GAME WILL BE TRUE TO YOU. IF YOU TRY TO SHORTCUT THE GAME, THEN THE GAME WILL SHORTCUT YOU. IF YOU PUT FORTH THE EFFORT, GOOD THINGS WILL BE BESTOWED UPON YOU. THAT'S TRULY ABOUT THE GAME, AND IN SOME WAYS THAT'S ABOUT LIFE TOO." Michael Jordan

I work with individual athletes who perform at senior level, school level, recreational level and national level.
The standard you perform at is not a defining factor as to whether I will coach you or not.
The DESIRE to be better, the ASPIRATION to achieve sporting goals and the COMMITMENT to a ‘Practice Mindset’ is critical.
I blend the style of Life Coaching with recognised ‘State Management’ techniques. I coach for 'understanding' which means that sessions always have an element of teaching and learning so that athletes become more aware. This understanding is something athletes carry with them long after the coaching experience is over.
