Developing People on Dry Land & in the Water




Learning & Training


Swimming is good for you …

… if you use your body well, without strain and stress on your neck, spine and joints.



Would you like to relax and ease painful joints or muscles? Could your breathing, floating or general confidence do with a boost? Or could your technique be refined – to use breaststroke, front crawl or back crawl without straining or gasping?

Whether you are a regular swimmer, new to swimming or returning after a break, you can transform your time in the water with one-to-one guidance and instruction tailored to your specific requirements.

I am a qualified teacher of Shaw Method Swimming, which concentrates on using your body well in the water: looking after your neck, shoulders and joints so that you can swim with pleasure and ease. Applying my 'dry land' expertise to the water has been a fascinating and exciting adventure, and has taught me an enormous amount about how people learn.

I am also a qualified ASA teacher and Fellow of the Institute of Swimming (FIOS).
