Sport has been ingrained in my life from an early age, my parents obviously wanted to burn me out, so they threw me into everything, from swimming, to football, to rugby to athletics. The fun aspect certainly hooked me, the social environment was a bonus and for some reason or another I enjoyed the grind.
I was decent at sports, on the good days there was nothing better, endorphins were kicking, great banter in the changing rooms, I couldn’t get enough of it.
With the good days, also come the tough days. The injuries, the loses, the scrutiny, the expectations. The higher the level, the greater the competition, the greater the pressure. On reflection, during my early years and my late teens my relationships with pressure was unhealthy. Sometimes I went into my shell, other times I would ruminate for days, in essence I would hold myself back from delivering what I was capable of on a consistent basis. My structures and my skills were good, but my mental gym was missing.
Many years later I know that if I want to perform at my best the mental factor is a key component to the performance triangle.
I am passionate about helping athletes of all levels to unlock their potential in the critical moments while enjoying what they do.
