I am happy to meet in person or online. This may be a meeting room organised by myself in London, a quiet and suitable public location, or am happy to travel (logistics and expenses to be discussed). We also conduct the session online.

About the session

It has been a privilege to work with such passionate and complex human beings in elite sport; each of which possessing their own identities, experiences, passions, and values. These concepts of deeper wellbeing are inseparable from performance. I therefore employ existential psychological theory and a phenomenological approach to my practice to meet the individual needs of the person opposite me in a collaborative manner. My psychological provision is also integrative in nature. My cognitive and positive psychology expertise from my PhD affords me proficiency in skills such as mental skills techniques and motivational interviewing. Further, I work alongside employees of all levels within sporting organisations to promote a psychologically informed environment. This ensures the psychosocial and emotional needs of all individuals are understood, respected, and embraced. Regardless of the task, I provide a passionate and empathetic demeanour to build a strong rapport and trust with athletes to help them be the best humans that they can – on and off the pitch.
