    It was an absolute pleasure working with my tutor, Iain Shippey. I learnt so much from him and HFPA’s insightful course. They were always willing to go above and beyond to help me in any way they could. Personally, my transition from player to coach has been made so much easier by being able to increase my knowledge in the sports psychology field. This was possible thanks to the guidance provided by my tutor, Iain Shippey. He is obviously very passionate about the course and that made me even more keen to learn and grow. I highly recommend that every athlete and coach takes on this valuable subject to use in the sporting world. – Marcelle Keet: South African Hockey and Water Polo International Rep
