A strong Scottish junior tennis player, I competed for my club, district and county at every opportunity - also playing table tennis for Scotland up to Under 15s. Unsurprisingly, sport was a big part of my decision to go to Loughborough University, where I continued to play during my student years. Studying sport psychology, I was able to relate what I was learning to my playing experiences. Yet sport psychology hadn’t featured or been a readily available service at my local high performance centre, nor was this the case elsewhere.
Through my studies, I came to appreciate that a better understanding of myself, the psychological demands of the game and how to cope with these demands would have had a big impact on how I interpreted different situations that arose in matches. My experiences ignited my passion to make sport psychology a more integrated part of athlete development, to enable individuals to achieve their potential in sport and life. I am now a HCPC Registered and BPS Chartered Sport Psychologist working in private practice.
Depending on the client's needs and goals of the consultancy, I help clients to better understand the mental demands of their sport and how they can get the best out of themselves and others through:
