Adrienn Szabadics, BSc, MSc, MBPsS
Growing up as a competitive swimmer for Hungary, I am no stranger to the experiences of a sportsperson. By the age of 10 years old, I was completing AM and PM swimming trainings each day which took me to the edge of my physical and psychological boundaries. Upon retiring from the pool, I took up long distance running as a hobby, partaking in half and full marathons regularly. I still love to lead an active lifestyle enjoying hikes, bike rides and even more adventurous activities like snowboarding and skiing.
This extensive range of experiences from my sporting childhood has only supplemented my education, helping me to find answer to questions such as “why do I feel so nervous?” or “how come I’ve performed so badly when I’ve trained so hard?”. This motivated me to complete my undergraduate degree from Bournemouth University before going on to attain a Masters in Sport and Exercise Psychology from the University of Winchester and a second masters degree from Oxford Brookes University in Psychology.
Combining my knowledge and experiences within sport and keeping up to date with current research coming from the field, I aspire to bring out the best in performers.
