Welfare Officer & Coach Educator

My full-time role is at Northampton University as a Senior Lecturer and programme lead of the Sport Coaching Degree. Prior to this I was the lead Biomechanics Lecturer at St Mary’s University in London. Outside of my day job I spend most evenings coaching aerial activities or gymnastics through my own coaching business, Inspire Coaching Academy. I genuinely enjoy spinning around and being upside down! I also work as a coach educator for British Gymnastics where I deliver L1, L2 and L3 theory courses and have also delivered the biomechanics content on the high performance and international coaching courses. I am also a coach mentor and educator for various sporting clubs

Coaching is my passion and I believe in using a holistic coaching style model, where the child is at the center of the process. This allows for wider child development, improved decision making and develops intrinsic motivation. It is the coach’s role to ensure our younger generation stays active and truly enjoys their activities for the long-term benefits. I believe in an individualised approach and that all learners should be catered for through variety and fun! We all know how different children can be and all should be provided within an environment where they can progress and be supported. I have been coaching alongside Kieran for many years now and know that we share this passion.
