There are almost 14 million people in the UK who are too scared to go into a pool or leisure centre due to a fear of water and aquatic activity. If this is you, you are not alone.
I am a qualified Advanced Aquaphobia Coach ("AAC") trained to deliver the specialist Aquaphobia Learning Programme ("ALP") to help people of all ages overcome a fear of water and learn to swim. I am currently one of only seven AAC's in the whole of Essex and the only AAC in the Southend-on-sea area.
The ALP is a unique 12-stage step approach to support those with a fear of water, providing them with the confidence, skills and techniques to enjoy the unique freedom that being in water can give. By going through the 12 stages, participants will grow in confidence and learn the basic principles of entering, standing, floating, moving and breathing in water.
Swimming lessons are tailored to the individual’s personal needs and degree of fear, going at their own preferred pace, so they feel uplifted, encouraged and comfortable.
I have successfully helped many people to overcome their fear and learn to swim or enjoy water based activities that they never thought possible. Please contact me for more information on the ALP and to learn how I can help you overcome a fear of water.
