Abstract

My philosophy is that when working with athletes and their coaches my role is to educate, facilitate, inspire, empower.

The work I do is always centred on the athlete, their needs are paramount. I believe strongly that ultimately my role as a sports psychologist is to create an environment of selfempowerment, where the athlete takes personal responsibility and control for their sporting destiny.
