I am inspired by the everyday human potential to do the amazing that exists in each of us. My professional experience has been working with people to overcome the challenges talented individuals have in reaching their potential.
My background was working in banking in the United Kingdom, until I made the shift to follow my passion and work with people. From 2003, I have been working in mental health and non-profit services. In 2007, I started working for the National Health Service as a Cognitive Behavior Therapist where I remained until I qualified as a Psychologist in 2009. From there, I transitioned to a private mental health hospital in Central London where my clients were primarily high-performing individuals. My work since then has been to help people overcome the problems and habits that were preventing them from functioning at their peak. This led me to work with athletes and sports teams, primarily weightlifters and CrossFit competitors.
I am experienced in academic and professional writing and am also regularly featured in BoxRox, Europe’s source for CrossFit news, athlete interviews, how-to’s, nutrition and much more. I have also been published on the Bulk Powders Core. My writing follows topics related to health, fitness, performance psychology, body image and wellness.
I have been a UK registered Psychologist (HCPC registered), chartered Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, an accredited Cognitive Behaviour Therapy practitioner (BABCP) and a certified obesity specialist (National Centre for Eating Disorders). I am a Level 1 CrossFit Trainer, Group Indoor Cycling Instructor and I currently work as coach in Texas.
My own hobbies include weightlifting and CrossFit. I have been an active competitor in British Masters Weightlifting. I enjoy spending my free time making things with my own hands, like little sewing projects, painting and baking.
