While working with these teams and individuals I have worked towards enhancing team cohesion, stress management and motivation. My other interests in performance psychology include mental skills training and mental toughness. My thesis at masters level focused on mental toughness investigating it’s construction and how it is developed.

I am currently an Amateur Swimming Association  level 2 swimming teacher and have competed at club and university level in swimming.
