I have been working with James for the past 2 years and he has really opened my eyes to ensuring that I arrive at tournaments fresh physically and mentally. James doesn’t have 1 strategy which fits all, he is very quick to adapt his approach to suit you and work with you on a personalized plan.
It took me a little while to understand and accept that less practice could actually make me play better, however, the results have spoken for themselves, I have won the last 2 county championships, something I haven’t achieved in 15 years of trying and improved in all areas of my game.
James has helped me to understand my golf and my energy levels, without a doubt his help has enabled to achieve more from my game and also enjoy playing golf even more!
I first met with James having suffered from panic attacks during open water swims in triathlon; pretty unpleasant experiences that had a big impact on my performance. Working with James has enabled me to take a more systematic and realistic approach to training and competition, and has really improved my understanding of myself as an athlete. I have no doubt that James’ input and support made a big contribution to my success this season, which culminated in a fantastic experience at the Age Group World Championships, and I can’t thank him enough.Phoebe Sanders – Triathlete
I first got in contact with James a few years ago after he came highly recommended by my County Coach. I was seeking consistency in all areas of my game. James’s practical approach to coaching leaves me instantly more confident and with plenty of games/drills to help concreate the work done in our talks. Anyone that is serious about taking their sports performance to the next level should have regular psychology coaching/support. Mental faults are harder to iron out than technical faults, with guidance from James you will be able to reach your goals at an excelled rate.Jeremy Larcombe – Amateur Golfer
