I am Loriellen and I am a chartered Sport and Exercise Psychologist.
Most of my experience within sport has been through being a swimming teacher for the past 7 years and coaching the past 2,5 years. During this time I have had the opportunity to occasionally coach masters swimmers, some of which were retired Olympic swimmers, however my main focus has been on coaching the development squad.
My experience within swimming has allowed me to understand sport from different perspectives as well as combine my psychological knowledge to support athletes with areas such as confidence, sport anxiety and motivation. Throughout my sport psychology training I have mostly worked with athletes at amateur level and have done some work at elite level. The main sports I have worked in are football, trampolining, swimming, track and field and triathlon. My main values are development, honesty, respect, happiness and fairness, which underpin my professional philosophy.
