About Me

I excel in getting the very best out of people, and I love doing it. I created Mental Fitness to help people get the best out of themselves and really live to their full potential.

For me, it all started with my own athletics career. I was a high performing athlete, representing Scotland and Great Britain. But even for all that undeniable success, I knew that I never fulfilled my potential and that my own mind was preventing me from being as good as I really could be. If only I could unlock that extra part that differentiates good from great… But how.

That’s when I started to study not just the physical body as I had for part of my Degree in Health and Physical Education but also how to harness our minds and emotions too. I went on to achieve a Masters Degree in Performance Psychology from the University of Edinburgh and am also a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, Executive Coach and mentor and certified counsellor.  I have also studied NLP and Hypnotherapy to the highest level to work with both the conscious and the often overlooked but extremely powerful subconscious mind.

Understanding how the mind works and how we can use it to best effect has always been my mission since my athletic days.  I worked for 17 years in Sport Scotland  where I worked daily with Olympians, World, European and Commonwealth Champions, and I still enjoy working with elite athletes today. 

Unless it is on the dance floor, you won’t see me winning any medals myself these days! However, I do still love that winning feeling.  I have been recruited for the last 3 Commonwealth Games and was beyond proud to manage the Scottish Squash Team to their first medal winning games in 25 years.

Today, I enjoy working across all sectors and helping individuals, teams and organisations from all walks of life with their Mental Fitness.  So they can understand themselves better and gain control of their ‘issues’ allowing them to live happier, healthier and more productive lives.
