My Aim

As a lifelong swimmer I want to share my passion with others.

My aim is very simple. To help anyone who would like to become a swimmer for the first time, right through to swimmers who want to improve their confidence, technique and stamina to become better swimmers in the pool or open water.


Teaching, Coaching & Training

The water is your don't have to fight with water, just share the same spirit as the water, and it will help you move. Alexander Popov. Russian Olympic Swimmer.

I love this quote because it sums up the secret of swimming so well.

All Stages of Swimming Coaching & Teaching

From complete beginners or someone who might have a phobia of water to a competent swimmer looking to improve their style and technique, I'm sure that I can help you.

I teach and coach individuals or groups from age 5 to 85.

Swimming is a lifelong activity with many health benefits for your mind, body and soul that is not governed by age and physical restrictions like so many other activities and sports.


Bespoke Individual Open Water Coaching

With many years of open water experience in rivers, lakes and sea, I can offer one to one sessions throughout the Open Water Swimming season for any age and experience level. From pool swimmers wishing to move into open water, those training for a specific event or triathletes wanting to improve their swim. Sessions include video analysis and a programme for you to continue working on between sessions.

It’s a great opportunity to boost confidence and performance, with measurable improvements during each session.
