How I Can
Sport Psychology has become an integral part to individuals and teams reaching their goals, achieving success and having fun whilst doing so. This rings true in sports, but also within business settings. Through my experience of professional sport, combined with knowledge and understanding attained during training and applied practice, I have been fortunate to develop a set of consulting skills which can cater for a range of ages and abilities across a wide-range of sports. Whether you are looking to 'find the edge' in order to turn pro, improve how you perform under pressure, develop skills such as confidence and concentration or wish to develop mental wellbeing during injury, I am confident of providing you the skills to thrive.
It might just be a simple chat, it could be walking around the golf course together, or it might be providing workshops for your team. I am happy and able to mould around your individual needs. Check out my services to get an idea of how we could work together and get in touch!
Remember - to improve your skills, physical fitness is desirable. Mental fitness is essential.
