From a club perspective, working with Rebecca has been extremely helpful over the past few years. She has helped us shape our whole-club wellbeing focus by informing and supporting our discussions as well as providing parent, group and 1-1 support as needed. Rebecca is extremely flexible and our work with her is ever evolving, taking into account the needs of the organisation and its members. As we progressed through the pandemic, the wellbeing of all our members, coaches and families has been at the forefront of our work and the expertise of Rebecca has really added to the support we can offer.

Life in sport has been excellent for Cardiff MCCU, assisting athletes individually and as a team. The professionalism is first class and has certainly benefited the squad and staff throughout.


Head Coach





Working closely with Rebecca since December 2018 has enabled me to enrich my learner’s experiences when delivering the Sports Psychology part of the A Level Physical Education course.


Rebecca’s knowledge, experience and enthusiasm has proved invaluable in helping to improve learner’s understanding of the topics. 

Rebecca has delivered a variety of exciting workshops, both online and in the classroom. I look forward to continue working with Rebecca and wouldn’t hesitate recommending her within the education setting.

The expertise Rebecca brings to the coaching team adds real value.
