Sport Psychology and Coaching


As a former Paralympic GB Wheelchair Basketball Player, recently retired from playing at club level, but still coaching as a Grade 2 Wheelchair Basketball Coach, I have a special interest in applying my Clinical Psychology skills to the sports arena. 

I was awarded the South Yorkshire Sport Disability Coach of the Year Award 2014 and was nominated further for a National Award.

I can offer individual assessments and interventions around performance anxiety, developing mental focus and visualisation techniques which are applicable to any sport.

I can offer teams and groups teaching on managing performance, working together, and using mental training techniques to develop focus, improve visualisation and improve teamwork.
