Welcome to my Mountain Training Profile.
I first registered with MT nearly 12 years ago, my passion for indoor climbing and sports instruction enabled me to start along my journey to becoming a qualified Climbing Wall Instructor. I even passed my award at the old Beacon, before it moved and became the modern and popular wall it is today.
Naturally I progressed onto consolidating my RCI, (or SPA in grandad rights!) and proudly gained my award to deliver Rock Climbing sessions outdoors in 2016. I have welcomed many people into the addictive sport that is climbing with clients from 5 to 75 years old. I have coached more than 1000 instructed sessions at the climbing wall and even co-delivered training for future award holders with Mountain Training providers in Wales. (Paul Poole an approved MTC Course Provider North Wales Regional Co-ordinator for The Mountain Training Association (MTA) and Andy Newton provider and trainer of MT courses, BMC technical expert)
I have my summer Mountain Leader award, and have been working in the outdoors with groups on the mountains more recently. This is probably my most proud achievement to date. My passion still lies in climbing and I hope to tick off more indoor coaching qualifications this year. I have completed my fundas 1&2 and am currently trained as a foundation coach.
I am a keen scrambler, trad-climber and enjoy summer sport particularly in hot countries. I am experienced with all age groups groups in a working capacity and consider myself to be adaptable and versatile, always offering quality instruction and remembering to make the sports fun to encourage lifelong participation to my clients.
