Under the Sea


Book a 30-min or 45-min one-to-one to help reach your personal goal. Better technique, smoother swimming, learn to swim outdoors, improve your health and wellbeing or just to try something new.

Groups and tasters

Join a group to learn more about open water swimming. Join a taster to discover the joy of outdoor swimming in a safe way. Or join a front crawl improvers group, or learn front crawl.


I run wellbeing and open water swimming courses that cover everything from improving your stroke and training for an event to learning how to do front crawl and improving your health and confidence.

Wild swimming

Outdoor swimming is life-changing. Why? Because swimming in cold water is uniquely wonderful for your wellbeing. It makes you stronger and fitter and has huge benefits for your mental health.

Open water

You'll find open water swimming more enjoyable when you are confident. Learn how to calm your breathing, improve your front crawl or breaststroke, learn freestyle and open water swimming skills like sighting. Train for open water swimming events, learn how to swim through winter or improve your technique for smooth and stress-free swimming.

I'm passionate about swimming outdoors for better health and wellbeing. I work with you to help you reach your goals. Whether you want to relax more, learn about tides and currents, swim a bit further, a bit faster or acclimatise to winter swimming, we can get there together.
