Focus, Believe, Achieve
With a career and background in health, sport and fitness journalism; and as a competitive triathlete, runner and swimmer, Evie has a genuine love and respect for physical activity and sport. She also has a genuine appreciation for what sport means to every athlete, at every level, from grassroots to elite.
Evie transitioned from interviewing sport psychologists to becoming one in her early 40s. Her lightbulb moment came after observing her father Roberto use exercise as a coping mechanism for high levels of pressure and stress. Surpassing 80, not only did Roberto become trimmer, stronger and fitter physically, remarkably he become more confident, more adventurous and mentally sharper than ever before. Evie turned to the psychology of sport and never looked back…
Evie holds a Diploma in Psychology (Derby University) and MSc in Sport and Exercise Psychology (Chichester University). A member of the British Psychology Society (BPS), Evie is continuing her professional development by working under supervision and towards Chartered status with the BPS and Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) Registration.
Evie’s consultancy approach
Evie has a person-centred approach, which means she likes to get to know you, learn about your sport/what it means to you, your interests outside of sport; and what makes you tick! Building rapport and mutual trust and respect are key to her consultancy and she helps you work out what you need to do, to improve your performance. Evie will explore the positive/negative impact of what you are thinking and feeling, then relate these to what’s actually happening (behaviour). From here, Evie can help you develop mental strategies and tools to change, to improve your performance and/or to improve wellbeing.
