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 with my colleagues and pupils of all swimming abilities aged 7 to 18.
