OPEN WATER COACHING
 

One to one sessions helping you achieve your open water goals

 

Whether you have signed up for your very first swim event, are a seasoned triathlete or a social swimmer I can help you to improve your technique and confidence. Swimming in open water presents a different environment to the indoor pool or Lido. Shelving bottoms, deep water, varying depths and temperatures, weather, waves, underwater obstacles, weeds, fish/marine life, debris, and of course our overactive imaginations, can send even experienced indoor swimmers into a complete panic. I know from experience that when panic sets in, swimming tends to become erratic, or comes to a complete stop!

 

These one to one sessions are designed to help swimmers keen to improve their confidence and technique in the water, developing strategies to deal with changing conditions and looking at ways to improve our swimming stroke. Whether your goal is to go faster, be more efficient or reach your swimming 'zen' I offer hour-long coaching sessions to help you improve. I hold the STA Award in Open Water Swimming Coaching and did my training under the expert tuition of World Champion and Olympian Keri-Ann Payne. I am passionate about helping others on their swimming journey and teach swimming at all levels as well as coach in Open Water. 

 

I offer these in the sea in the South Coast of England, Hampshire/Dorset border (exact locations always depend on the tide and weather conditions on the day) or at certain dates in Snowdonia. Please see below for more info or drop me a line.

ABOUT ME

I am an artist, outdoor swimmer and personal trainer. I spilt my time between the mountains of Snowdonia in North Wales where I have lived since 2002 and on the beautiful South Coast in the New Forest where I grew up. My project #swimsnowdonia was listed amongst 'The 10 most inspiring adventures' in The Guardian and has been the focus of several short films including a music video for the band Elbow. 'Afterglow' a short film about my passion for both my creativity and cold water swimming won Best Woman in Adventure Gold Award at Sheffield Adventure Film Festival., Best Short Film at The Four Season Film Festival and was recently selected for The Patagonia Film Festival in Santa Monica. I was included in the first San Miguel Rich List, 'a unique list of men and women who value experiences over any possession' and listed as one of Britain's 101 Adventurers. I featured in an ITV documentary 'The Mountain ' which follows the lives of a selection of people who live and work on the busiest mountain in England and Wales, Snowdon as well as various features on the BBC, Sky Sports and Channel 5.

 

I am a Qualified Teacher, Personal Trainer, Mountain Leader, Open Water Swimming Coach, RLSS Open Water Lifeguard,  RYA Day Skipper and hold RYA Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster Offshore Theory.
