Who am I?

I have been fascinated by ways to enhance performance for many years now. As a swimmer in my teens, I never felt like it was the sport I loved. This impacted my enjoyment and motivation to train and compete and resulted in me leaving the sport. Whilst my sporting journey didn't turn out how I wanted, leaving swimming allowed me to find what I was passionate about, made me aware of the importance of mindset, and allowed me to reflect on what was missing when I competed. Despite my personal goals turning towards fitness, my fascination with high performance never faded and fuelled my passion for sport psychology and becoming a mindset coach. Today I’m here to support you in developing a mindset that empowers you or your child to reach their potential, instead of being held back the same way I was.

I have experience supporting youth and adult athletes from amateur to elite level and am currently working as a Performance Psychologist with England Touch Rugby. Alongside this, I have a background working in education and community mental health.
