Coaching the Mind  - £110 for the theory day or £195 for the two days, when available.


Performance Psychology is an area which as sea paddlers we give little thought to. In the 10 years Roger has been running Coastal Spirit, performance anxiety, fear and loss of control are a couple of reasons why paddlers are unable to progress.  With a clearer understanding, of whats going on and why we feel a certain way, we can develop coping strategies and have a better chance to control and manage our emotions better and hence our performance.  


This course will introduce and expand on the psychological aspects of coaching and will help both the individual as a coach and also as a performer. It will be delivered in an understandable and practical way which will shed some light on this large subject area.  1st day theory, with active work shops, 2nd day on the water and putting various theories into practice.  
Maximum of eight individuals with a ratio of 1:4 - this allows for greater flexibility, with choosing the on the water venue, that suits the individual and their needs.
Ability level  - so you get more out of the course, you need to be as a minimum an Intermediate paddler with 3* skills. 



Performance psychology can help you to understand more, manage those emotions better and provide effective strategies to move forwards, with 'flow' and achieve your goals.


This is British Canoeing Intermediate module and counts towards Continued Professional development (CPD), with the three year coaching up-date.

"And I'm probably learning more from his mentoring now, as my paddling horizons expand, than ever before. I can't count how many questions I've asked... and he's answered. Roger has the knack of making that suggestion that radically changes your thinking and moves your paddling on in leaps and bounds."

Stella King

"There are a number of wonderful things about Roger. He has a very light touch in his coaching, and he's always smiling and encouraging you to relax into the enjoyment of the day"

Simon Turnbull

"I've just completed a two day 4* Sea kayak training course with Roger. Having been coached by Roger in the past, I choose to do this course with Roger because I knew I would get a great deal from the course. My expectations were certainly well and truly met"

Thanks for a great weekend.  We were really impressed with the way you ran the course and that it felt 'tailored' just for us.  We both really enjoyed ourselves and Chris has definitely got the bug.  Many thanks.
