As a Premier League and International football player, Paul competed with and against the best players in the world on a daily basis which has shaped his understanding of the methodology of high performance.

He has recently worked with Microsoft, PWC, Grant Thornton, Aviva, Barclays, Deutsche Bank, Nat West and many more.

The insights that Paul shares are even more applicable today in our remote and virtual workplaces, which help empower individuals to understand that our mindset and thinking habits unlock the required behaviours that are necessary for elite performance.

Paul shares his psychological framework from growing up in war torn Belfast, Ireland alongside the strategies he implemented performing under the intense scrutiny of 75,000 fans across the world. He is also an established broadcaster on TV and radio with BBC, Sky Sports, BT Sport and a published author. 

The insights Paul shared as a Sport Psychologist for Premier League clubs have helped many players compete in, what is considered, the most prestigious and ruthless sports league in the world.


Client Offerings

I have A VARIETY OF PACKAGES to suit your needs and the needs of your team:

Psychology of PERFORMANCE

Performance involves numerous, multi-faceted principles that can be broken down to measure progress. Many top organisations consistently work on the technical component and yet, the psychological approach is invariably the biggest differential between proposed objectives and actual outcomes. I use my expertise to engage your staff to consciously improve their mental performance. 

Psychology of LEADERSHIP

The latest empirical research is redefining what a leader is, what they do and how they do it. Implementing these 5 key principles can help shape the leaders of the future; belief, accountability, pillars of change, identity and empathy. However, you can’t get the best out of others until you get the best out of yourself. Here I share my insights to help your leaders elevate these elite competencies.

Psychology of TEAMWORK

The highest performing teams on the planet share an ethos that is consistent, tangible and methodical. Understanding what is required from each other is crucial to success. Building upon our tried and tested framework helps each team player engage and flourish to develop them as people and future business leaders. I use insights from my 20-year experience in a high performing environment to help unlock your team’s potential.
