The Attention Academy

I have worked in the coaching industry for over 20 years in the field of skill acquisition and performance coaching. In that time I have developed a workable methodology of practical tools and  techniques to really drill down to those elusive performance variables. Performance is NOT linear! We can't always produce the performance we would like, when we would like it.  Indeed sport/life and business doesn't work that way.


We can however, choose how we react to performance to give us the best outcomes possible in a given moment. I have had the pleasure and luck to work with many high profile elite athletes in many of the elite sporting arenas around the world.  This includes, Tournament professional golfers, top class amateurs, I have worked with Walker Cup and LET players all the way through the game to aspiring amateurs in the USA golfing scholarship system or simply club golfers who just know there is something missing.


I have also been fortunate enough to work with Commonwealth Games swimmer, International athletes and gymnasts as well as performers from the Premier League, championship and English football league.


My methods vary for the individual.  'One size does not fit all' -  this is not a cookie cutter approach!  I work with the individual about 'Their story'


But, ultimately, we are about changing the ‘narrative’ and focussing your ATTENTION on what’s important to YOUR performance.
