Being that positive role model…
I would be nothing without the help and support from others and now do everything possible to help others better themselves. I am flexible with the shape of my sessions and happy to tailor it to fit the clients expectations.
Children and young adults often need encouragement to reach their potential. As an Athlete mentor I support and challenge individuals, schools, collages and universities to think differently. I use games and tools to give guidance and direction to groups highlighting the transferable skills needed to succeed in sport and life. As a positive role model, I share my story and experiences to inspire. I genuinely strive to make every session as fun as possible for all involved and I have many team building games and sessions up my sleeve.
Sky Sports Living for Sport
My Work with Sky Sports as a Senior Athlete Mentor is in its 6th year. As well as delivering the mentoring sessions I'm responsible for the quality control of the programme, helping structure and over see the training delivered to the 120 Athletes involved.
I work very closely with a number of colleges and schools tailoring mentoring sessions to fit the needs of the students. If it's about confidence, attendance, behaviour or focus I can personalise the programme with the help of the tutors to get the very best out of the students.
I guide young adults from all backgrounds through the minefield of adolescence. The work varies from assisting students in overcoming adversity, physical or mental barriers to challenging talented students to hone their focus and resolve training issues to achieve the best in their field.
