Hi, I am Thomas and I am a trainee Sport and Exercise Psychologist. I launched my own sport psychology practice, First Hurdle Consultancy, as I believe that psychological help should not be a barrier to an athlete's development. Externally to this, I work on an individual and group level with West Bromwich Albion FC, whilst working in track and field.

I previously competed for England in 110mHurdles and Decathlon as a junior in track and field, and have an array of interests and experience in a variety of sports, such as swimming, rugby, cricket, hockey, and badminton. Navigating sport at any level is tough and my experience as an international athlete allows me insight into the demands sport has and the challenges you may face technically, physically, and importantly psychologically.

I have particular research interests in mental health and well-being in athletes, with my recent publication focused on help-seeking behaviours in elite track and field athletes - please follow this link for more information:

I work online with clients to cater to busy schedules and flexibility. For more details, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

About the session

Working with all clients will entail an initial assessment that will allow us to collaboratively form an action plan of your case to work together. My work as a psychologist stems from the belief that whilst performance enhancement is important, maintaining psychological well-being and ensuring you as an athlete is supported holistically is paramount. Through our sessions you main learn and develop psychological skills, on a case-by-case basis, such as, imagery, positive self-talk, goal-setting, mindfulness, among many other tools.
