about the author

Alice Pinion of Head First Sports Performance Mind Coaching has over a decade of successful experience in therapy and mind coaching. Alice Pinion was quoted as one of the top 10 therapists in the UK in the Huffington Post in 2014. Working as a sport psychologist with all levels of sports people from diverse disciplines such as Motorsport, shooting, triathlon, running, swimming, cycling, cricket, football, diving, martial arts, golf, ice skating and darts (amongst others). She treats a whole persons’ thinking systems as well as applied mind skills specifically to improve sporting performance.

 Personally (when not working) Alice indulges herself in long distance open water swimming and exploring the great outdoors as much as possible.
