“There is immense power when a group of people with similar interests get together to work towards the same goals.”


In order to perform at any level, you need a good team of people around you. I'm available to mentor across all sports.

A sports mentor can help that team to communicate with each other and work as a cohesive unit rather than as fragmented individuals. As a mentor I will be the link between coach, athlete and parent - not only in the day to day training but also as a confidante when the athlete starts to compete up and through the levels. I will provide advice, offer support and give encouragement and inspiration to young athletes.

As a sportswoman, coach, manager and parent, I understand the power of effective communication. A good mentor is a sounding board and a trusted advisor who builds important relationships between all parties. I am someone the young athlete can speak to openly, honestly and without fear of reprisal; a good relationship between the invested partners can make all the difference to performance.

I have been a GB competitor in three sports, National GB (U21) Equestrian Youth Coach and National Irish (U18) Junior Equestrian Coach, including coaching both teams to thirteen and five respective European Championships. Combining that with an MSc in Sport and Psychology, running my own business and bringing up four children all means I have a unique insight into what it takes to be an effective sports mentor. I understand every aspect of what is needed to become a successful athlete.

Every competitor suffers setbacks - physical, personal, mental - and I've experienced many myself. A sports mentor is someone the athlete can turn to when faced with difficult decisions, someone who's there for the ups as well as the downs. By talking through the various options together, the athlete will feel empowered to find their own solutions to each dilemma. With a strong team supporting them, they will be able to face whatever life throws at them.

I believe that anyone can achieve whatever they want to through hard work, discipline, talent and a positive mindset. There are no glass ceilings as far as I'm concerned. Everybody needs a mentor, whatever their age. Someone you can trust and who is on your side; someone who challenges; someone who wants the best for you.
