I WAS A COMPETITIVE SWIMMER THROUGHOUT SCHOOL AND UNIVERSITY, YET HAVE NO RECOLLECTION OF LEARNING HOW TO SWIM. AFTER HAVING CHILDREN, I RETRAINED THROUGH THE AMATEUR SWIMMING ASSOCIATION AND BEGAN TO TEACH SWIMMING TO PEOPLE OF ALL AGES AND ABILITIES, THIS EXPERIENCE HAS ALLOWED ME TO SEE THAT MOST SWIMMING PROBLEMS FOLLOW A CLEAR PATTERN.
I was introduced to Total Immersion swimming and was instantly drawn to its methodology in all four strokes. I became dedicated to re-learning how to swim and undoing my many bad habits. Total Immersion has taught me how to connect and interact with the water in ways that have transformed my own swimming, it was a natural progression to then train as a Total Immersion Coach.
As Head of Swimming at Bancroft’s School, I am very fortunate to be able to share my experience and passion for swimming with my colleagues and pupils of all swimming abilities aged 7 to 18. With the incredible support of the school in 2019 I was able to share my love of open water swimming taking the pupils to Montenegro for the schools first open water swimming trip, an incredible experience for the pupils and an absolute pleasure to swim alongside them.
A technique focused coach my private coaching allows me to help and work with all level of swimmer from adult novice to competitor and help you achieve your goals..whatever they are!
