After working in the field of business psychology for 12 years, coaching leadership teams and delivering culture change programmes to increase performance, I came to realise that whether your objective is to become a world champion, a successful business leader or the best parent or friend, it can quite often be your personal barriers whether conscious or not that can hold you back. We underestimate our internal self and look externally so often for the answers.
I provide one to one and team coaching across all fields. whether you work, live or play alone or within a team, being present in the moment without thoughts of past or perceived future experiences or interactions, will allow you to be truly connected to that moment and your mind will be free to create, perform and connect with freedom and clarity. Understanding your truth, and finding the courage to live it will elevate your performance in life, business or on whichever stage, field, court or track it is you do your thing.
MHFA -Mental Health First Aid
If you have a physical health first aider in your organisation, then surely you have a mental health one too?
The MHFA 2-day course is for anyone who works, lives or supports young people (8-18). The course will give you the confidence to spot the signs of mental health issues in a young person, offer first aid and guide them to the support they need. In doing this, you can help speed up recovery and stop a mental health issue from getting worse. The course will not teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond in a crisis and even potentially stop a crisis from happening. You will also receive the skills to look after your own mental health and by giving you the tools to have these conversations, I hope to empower you to create a mentally supportive environment in your family, school, sports club and community.
Public Talks - Sharing my story.....
When your story is just your story you just live it.
However, after playing sport all my life and working in the field of performance and often with young people, I realised that my journey was actually quite remarkable. I went through challenging times as a teenager and young adult whilst playing netball at the highest level. In hindsight, I recognise that the support and even potential safeguarding measures that should have been implemented were not available to me. That is because on the outside, I was not categorised as a "vulnerable kid" but I absolutely was. I share my personal story because I know that there are other teenagers out there who need support like I did and although they may seem to be excelling in sport or whatever they do, sometimes we may need to take an extra look. Organisations outside of schools have a "duty of care" and I would like to challenge your thoughts on what this actually means.
