I graduated with a first class honours BA in Coaching and Sports Development from the University of Cumbria. My dissertation on sport confidence in amateur team sport athletes is currently being reworked and submitted for consideration to two peer-reviewed journals. I have presented the findinings of these studies at the BASES Student Conference 2012 and the Cumbria Research and Enterprise Festival 2012. I was awarded the Santander Loughborough Scholarship in August 2012 so I could begin my Masters. My interest in psychology stems from my work with footballers and 100 metre sprinters.

Sophie Walton

Sophie Walton

Having been a high performing Rhythmic Gymnast and a sports coach to a variety of abilities, ages, cultures and backgrounds, this has significantly shaped who I am. These experiences greatly influenced my academic choices which led to studying Sport (BA Hons) at Durham University. As my knowledge of sport psychology grew, I soon realised how much influence it had on my own career as a gymnast and a coach. This led me to further pursue my academic studies, graduating with an MSc in Sport Psychology from University of Roehampton and embarking on the BASES SE Accreditation pathway. I have had experience with GB Rowing, Professional Football players, Junior GB Volleyball athletes, research, publications and more.

Sophie Williams

I am a current 3rd year student at the University of Worcester undertaking an undergraduate degree in Sport and Exercise Science. I intend to further my education by completing a masters degree in Sport and Exercise Science later this year. I take an interest both academically and physically in a variety of sports, with a particular interest in Rugby Union, as this is my sport of choice. As I enjoy all the disciplines of sport & exercise science I like to think I am interdisciplinary. However, with regards to sports psychology the topic areas of interest to me are: injury, fear, and aggression.
