Clive's interest and experience in sport and exercise psychology stemmed from previous experience in both the sporting and fitness industries. For example, he played rugby league for twelve (12) years and rugby union for four (4) years at a local level and more seriously competed as a triathlete at state, national and international levels including the World Championship Triathlon (3km swim/120km bike/ 32km run) in Nice, France back in 1987. He has also coached numerous cyclists, swimmers and triathletes and has also been a health and fitness consultant and fitness centre manager.
Complimenting his own sporting experience, Clive also has post graduate training in exercise physiology, sports coaching and has picked up numerous coaching certificates along the way. It was only natural for Clive to incorporate this area of sport and exercise psychology in to his practice. He understands the elite sporting community and the demands of elite level commitment. He enjoys bringing out the best in others and ensures his skills and experience in psychology are applied directly to the pursuit of excellence and high level sporting achievement.
