You get time and space to explain your fears and hopes for the session. If you’ve had adult swimming lessons with me before, we’ll have a recap before chatting about the focus for the current session.
"Siân is a very patient coach who offers constant reassurance. Since starting sessions with Siân, I understand more about water and have more control over my breathing when in the pool. As a result, I'm more confident, my fear of water has lessened, and I'm a stronger swimmer. I have a hectic job, and it's good to escape routine and spend time doing something for myself. Siân has a great sense of humour, and I always come away from her sessions feeling uplifted and energised."
I moved away from traditional teaching styles as I wanted to emphasise how important it is to think about the process rather than thinking about the outcome. To move through water freely, you have to be more mindful. Water is more than a liquid – it has a character of its own. Slap water with your hand, and you’ll face resistance. Yet slip into the water, and it will embrace you. If you are gentle with water, the water is gentle with you.
Over the years, I’ve researched and studied various coaching methods. The unique combination of these methods is what makes Brainwaves coaching and 1:1 swimming lessons successful.
