Climbing Coaching

" Coaching is  a real passion for me, and learning to get the absolute best out of people is hugely satisfying. I coach individuals, couples and small groups, whilst also coaching regularly for the Women's Climbing Symposium and on Rock and Sun climbing holidays. "

Focussed coaching is a sure fire way to get the absolute best out of your climbing. 

I cater things specifically to you, looking at your current climbing, lifestyle, and goals, and helping you to discover what will make the biggest difference to your climbing. I'll give specific exercises and methods for improving your technique, head game, tactical skills or physical ability, applicable to you whether you have been climbing for one year or 20+ years. 

Coaching really does fast track your climbing, renew motivation and enjoyment, provide accountability for your practise and training, and give you a valuable, outside perspective on your climbing. 

I provide tailor made technique and tactical coaching, physical training session plans, online Zoom consultations,  and one-off or regular coaching sessions. 

one off sessions

Book a 2 or 3 hour indoor session, where I'll look in depth at your climbing and give you a clear plan for making quality improvements in your climbing. Coaching can also take place outdoors, but will need to be a full day booking

2 or 3 hour workshops for small groups of family or friends on a specific area of climbing of your choice. For example: steep climbing technique, tactics, or fall practise. Although the coaching won't be quite as individual, small groups are brilliant for learning from others, motivation and encouragement, and lots of fun!

"Your coaching made a significant difference to my climbing this summer and definitely helped prepare me for a fantastic trip to Fairhead. It was super helpful and continues to make a difference."
