Sport mindset coaching, Clean Language,, psychometrics (personality profiling) & life coaching (youth and adult)
I am a life coach and sport mindset coach. Combining the two bring the meaning and joy into your sport. The perfect place to be in order to perform at your best. As Joseph O'Connor says "people compete with their mind, body and emotions".... I will help you to achieve more authentic outcomes when you nurture the person behind the athlete.
I am an NLP practitioner, a golf psychology coach, a behavioural profiling analyst and a thought field therapist. My broad set of skills and extensive tools range from traditional state management interventions to emotional freedom techniques and working in 'metaphor'. This helps me to cater for your uniqueness and your own specific challenges. Pursuing different/better outcomes require the athlete to 'think' differently.
I promote self-awareness, understanding and development through a wide skill-set and an interesting combination of 'tools'.
Whatever your 'arena', managing your 'state' is important. What is State Management? It is about thinking/feeling/behaving and how this impacts on outcomes, decision making and relationships (with yourself and others).
In order to be ‘effective' and ‘happy' (in sport, at work or home) you need to be balanced and congruent. Do you know what you want? Is it truly important? How are you going to get there? Understanding, accepting, making choices, changing, knowing your core values, and challenging the beliefs that might be limiting your performance (at work, at home, with family with sport etc) are part of the process.
Performance Coaching is ‘future orientated' - it works on the premise that you set goals because ‘you get what you focus on'. It is strategy based and action focused. It is not therapy or counselling. You buy-into the art of elegant and appropriate questioning. As Albert Einstein said:
"If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes."
My practical and theoretical approach embeds skills so that clients can enact change, remove un-resourceful habits and substitute resourceful behaviour. State Management gets to the basics - how to understand and manage yourself (self-awareness/self-management/relationship management). It is important to teach behaviour and not just ‘thinking'. Clients are given simple ‘take-away tools' that they understand and can use these to establish good habits or access them during times of pressure.
Clients can use these tools every day as part of leading a happy, healthy, positive and purposeful life. At the ‘tough end' clients can use State Management tools to respond to pressure events, in work, sport, public speaking, presentations, examinations, personal crisis, in relationships etc.
Key words: state management, self-awareness, outcomes, behavioural management, congruence, well-being, motivation, behavioural profiling, psychometrics, Clean Language, metaphor.

Most of my work can be conducted over skype if it is not possible to attend in person. (exemptions: phobia and trauma work). I can travel to you but this will incur additional transport and time costs. This is particularly relevant for serious athletes who would like me to attend competition.
