Personal Statement

I specialise in improving personal, professional or sporting performance. Calling on my own experiences, as well as using the latest research and studies, I help teams and individuals move towards their goals in a positive way. Helping remove the mental and physical barriers to success, I encourage people and organisations to achieve and surpass their performance goals. I have always been fascinated by the mindset that underpins success – the difference that allows some people to achieve whilst others do not. With a background that includes elite sport and a long-term study of yoga and meditation it is clear to me that the mind is a powerful factor when exploring the limits of what is physically and mentally possible. I work across the corporate, education and sporting sectors helping people increase their personal and professional effectiveness. Using a flexible and innovative approach I work with leaders to increase their impact and help them create an environment that delivers sustainable performance gains.
