John has a real passion for sport and his journey begins back in 1999 when he was selected to represent England in Taekwon-do (ITF).
“During my years as an international i knew many fighters were far more talented and skilful than I was, however, when they stepped into the ring for some reason they were unable to perform to their best but this is where i came alive. To me I recognised then and understand now that the role of psychology on performance can be the difference between success and failure.”
Having competed internationally for 6 years at elite sport, winning medals at both World and European championships he understands fully how the pressure and emotional challenge can present itself in competition and how this may represent itself in everyday life. In order to achieve excellence the right attitude and perseverance is required. To be the best it is the combination of the mental and physical that makes the ultimate difference in performance…..
John uses his vast experience and high level of education to facilitate health enthusiasts, athletes and sportsman alike to achieve their related goals. As a performance based coach and mentor he specializes in the progression and development from both a personal and professional perspective.
John’s qualifications include BASES Chartered Sport and Exercise Scientist, HCPC Registered Sport Psychologist, REPs Level 4, Msc Sport Science and BSc Psychology/Sport Science.
