About

Hello, I'm a dedicated Performance Psychologist with a unique background. My journey started in mental health services, where I spent five transformative years honing my skills and understanding the human psyche. This experience has equipped me with a skill set that translates perfectly into sports psychology.

Competitive sports can be a high-pressure environment, such as elevated performance expectations, fear of failure, risk of injury, and intense public and media scrutiny. As an athlete, these pressures can feel like a heavyweight, dragging down your performance and affecting your mental well-being. This is where I come in. I've worked with clients across the spectrum - from those dealing with mental health difficulties to recreational athletes, professional athletes on GB squads, and competitors in national and international leagues. I bring this wealth of experience to our sessions, providing tailored support that addresses your unique needs.

My approach is all about fostering positive, lasting change. I work closely with you to identify the habits that may be holding you back and replace them with adaptive patterns that promote consistent performance and mental resilience. For example, how we respond to setbacks plays a pivotal role in shaping our future actions and overall wellness. Recognizing this, I guide my clients through a transformative process of uncovering their unique triggers and understanding their origins. With this newfound awareness, enables my clients to identify distractions and tackle them head-on instead of being derailed. We work together to build adaptive responses that become second nature, paving the way for healthier reactions in the face of adversity.

In essence, my mission is to empower you with the mental tools to not only survive but thrive in the competitive world of sports. With my guidance, you'll learn to navigate the challenges, maintain your mental edge, and unlock your full potential. Ready to embark on this journey together? Let's transform your performance from the inside out!

I work online with athletes worldwide and I am based in London.

GB Padel Tennis Athlete

Through my sessions with jess, I have started to enjoy playing competitive sport again - something I have not been able to do for a long time! I have developed my awareness of self critical thoughts and how they impact my nerves and the way in which I think and play during competitive sport. Jess has provided the space and insight for me to begin to understand where these thoughts might come from. I have learnt to be more compassionate to myself and how to effectively manage my emotions under pressurised situations. This has had a huge impact on my ability to perform when things are close. Jess is warm, honest and insightful - thank you for helping me enjoy playing again.

In the sport psychology sessions, we worked on my concentration whilst batting, as I kept getting out after 20 runs. This helped me to maintain my focus on helpful things rather than focusing on the score. My runs improved and my reading of the game became more impactful, like picking the right time to push on or stay in. I look forward to building on this more next season. Thanks Jess.

Since working with Jess, I have been intentionally trying to incorporate a positive mindset into my play and practice. I am better at noticing when there is tension and when this happens using mental skills to move through this effectively. I have learnt to be more compassionate to myself when I make errors, especially during putting – which makes a huge impact and takes off so much pressure. My play continues to improve and I’m way more consistent.
