Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Performance Coach
I offer psychological and mental skills coaching to rock climbers who would like to develop focus and flow, overcome fears and anxieties, improve their motivation and tactics, and develop the right psychological mindset to improve their climbing.
I’m qualified and experienced in using cognitive-behavioural techniques, mindfulness and mental training skills, as well as using graded exposure in a safe, supportive way to help you overcome your fears around leading or falling.
