Golf psychology is a huge area of interest for me, understanding how I can get the most out of my clients and create the fastest improvements is a real passion of mine. I have been lucky enough to be heavily influenced by a number of the worlds leading mind coaches. Through my studies and travels I have gain two qualifications in this area of real note -
Qualified Mind Factor Golf Coach
Karl has worked with some of Europe’s best golfers. The techniques taught in the course have been used by four major winners including Graeme McDowell, Darren Clarke, Louis Oosthuizen and Charles Schwartzel to name a few.
The Mind Factor is a practical approach to performance coaching that understands the role of the mind in sport and how to get the very best out of yourself and your clients.
Karl’s techniques have consistently produced outstanding results for clients at all levels of sport and business with a practical and applicable approach based on real world experience as opposed to classroom theory.
There is no doubt modern day coaching is a mixture of good technical understanding and mechanics. However a massive flaw in coaching is a lack of understanding of how we learn skills and then how we can take those skills from a practice environment to a high pressure performance situation. The art and science of Skill Acquisition, Neuroscience, Cognitive Psychology, Hypnosis, NLP and Life Coaching are all integral to the tools and techniques contained within the mind factor but have been distilled into a workable and practical model so normal people can use and understand them.
Great coaching is about understanding how a player has to be able to integrate sound mechanics and biomechanical principles with a mindset which then sets the body free to be able to play in any environment
Learning with Karl personally was an amazing experience, something only a few coaches can boast to have done. The skills and tools I now have will allow me to improve clients even faster and really help them achieve the results they could only dream of.

Certified Golf Mind Coach
Psychology plays not only a major role in performance but in skill development as well! That’s what initially got me so interested in this field in the first place, why some people improved faster than others or could grasp concepts quicker than others or even perform better in a competitive environment. Through my research I learnt about the importance of using Golf Psychology in golf coaching as well as designating specific sessions to training the mind for golf. This research enabled me to pass my exams to become a Certified Golf Mind Coach.
The qualification was designed by Dr Brian Hemmings (Pictured Left). Brian has been the lead psychologist to the England golf team for 15 years delivering high performance strategies with European and World Championship winning teams and individuals at men’s, youth and junior level. Brian gained his PhD in sport psychology from the University of Southampton in 1998; and has trained and mentored many golf psychology practitioners over the last decade.
I feel that with my advanced knowledge of Golf psychology I have a unique insight into the problems experienced by many aspiring golfers for example anxiety, lack of motivation/drive & confidence. I have some great tools that will combat these real problems and allow you to enjoy your golf more and play to your full potential.
