“I’m 15 and a national swimmer, last year I felt I wanted to give up my swimming and seeing Rebecca helped me balance my activities and identified how to pick myself back up. She didn’t tell me what to do or how to feel she guided me to work it out for myself.”
Athlete one-to-one support
Individualised support can cover a range of topics for athletes at various stages of their careers:
•Event / competition preparation.
We encourage the integration of Psychology support in to your Life-in-Sport through regular one-to-one sessions.
"Rebecca is very knowledgable and approachable, my daughter found it easy to discuss her concerns with her. The sessions provided tools & coping mechanisms that can be applied in both sport and school/daily life. We have seen positive improvements in her sport and overall wellbeing. I would recommend these sessions, especially for any teenagers who have lost confidence in their abilities."
Coach one-to-one support
Individualised coach support can cover a range of topics:
•Mental health and wellbeing in outcome and results driven environments
•Reflecting on your development and the progress of your athletes
•Preparing for key events or competitions
•Working through career/coaching transitions and role changes
•Developing a culture and values for your team / organisation
These sessions are a great way to ensure that coaches are effectively supporting their athletes whilst also allowing time to focus on their own wellbeing and development:
•Tailored to the needs of the group
•To enhance coach knowledge on a specific topic
•To support individuals through the challenges of being a coach
•To help you support the athletes you work with in relation to wellbeing, development and performance
"Rebecca has a very good breadth of experience across many sports and age groups. She is confident working with teams or in one-on-one sessions with individual athletes and coaches. Most pleasing is her approach to ensuring the overall wellbeing of those she is helping. I highly recommend Rebecca as someone who values the development of the person"

Team / Group workshops
We run a variety of workshop for athletes depending on your needs. Here are some example topic areas:
•Mindset Matters - An Introduction to Sport Psychology
•Why are you involved in your sport? - Understanding your motivation
•Jumping to the next level - Progression in your sport
•Preparation and routines for performance
•What’s in your control? - Maintaining your focus
Season long team / group support
Utilising ongoing season or year long support for you team / group will be beneficial for:
•Supporting your group for the duration of a competitive cycle
•Working through the highs and lows of sport as they happen
•Ensure you are proactive in your approach to Sport Psychology
•Combining observations, one to one support and workshops for athletes coaches and parents in a fully integrated support program.
Sometimes the discussions were less formal for example during a training session, we’d set small goals within that hour or two in order to get a more positive outcome, and other times were more formal such as a sit down meeting where we’d chat or I’d fill out a questionnaire. Rebecca has been crucial in changing my attitude towards sports psychology and the importance of it within hockey.
Parent support program
We have a tailored program for parents who are looking to develop the way they support their children in sport:
•Help your child learn from setbacks
•Listen and reflect with your child after competitions
•Ensure there is a process focus on their performances
•Reduce the pressure and expectations on your child
1 x introductory session to tailor the support to you and 4 support sessions
These are a great way to ensure that parents are part of their child’s sporting journey:
•Tailored to the needs of the group
•To enhance parent knowledge on a specific topic
•To support individuals through the challenges of being a sport parent
•To help parents support their young athletes
Being a parent of a child who excels in a sport can be difficult. According to our daughter we are not pushy parents, it is just that the sport tends to take over life. Achievement at school and friendships are just assumed. Rebecca helped our daughter understand her feelings and then to explain to us which then enabled us to support her better in all aspects of her life which resulted in her being much happier.
