Helping You overcome your fear of water and learn to embrace a life in the water for leisure, pleasure or spending time with your children.
South West Swim head Coach Jason Tait is an advanced Level 2 ALP Aquaphobia coach, and South West Swim have the status of a Registered ALP Swim School.
Combining our ALP qualifications and years of experience in helping nervous swimmers into the water we can help you overcome your phobias.
If you have a fear of water it can be a life limiting physical and mental factor for an individual. Millions of people worldwide are afraid of the water, to varying degrees.
– Don’t know why they are scared of water
– Don’t know why they can’t swim
– Don’t know where they can go for help
– Don’t know who they can ask for help
– Don’t know if their teacher would fully understand your fear, and appreciate how scared this can make you feel
If this is you, please do get in contact with us as we can help you. Our specialist qualifications allow us to work with you in a fully structured way, working at your own pace based on your own level of phobia.
We will work with you on a 1-to-1 basis in our own Endless Pool, and we can also work with you in open water (we will gauge the suitability for an open water session with you).
Soon we hope to be able to bring small class structures to our Aquaphobia clients as well.
South West Swim Aquaphobia Coaching
Fully qualified Advance Aquaphobia Level 2 coach
Our ALP training ensures we can approach your fear of the water in a individul and structured way, using tried and tested methods and techniques.
Working at your own pace
We understand different people will have different levels of aquaphobia. Our initial session with you will work to determine this level of phobia, and will be away from the water. We use a process known as the P.A.R, that determines your personal ability range by your Aquaphobic Coach asking a set of questions to determine your background fears and prior experiences.
Working in a no pressure environment
We are not going to rush you, and it is important to note that these are not swimming lessons but lessons in the process of getting our learners to feel at one with the water at a basic level. As we progress through the ALP process we will start to develop more swim based skills, and when you are ready we can move swimmers into our swim lessons.
Your initial sessions will take place in our own private endless pool. This gives you a fantastic and safe enviropnment for your sessions, with 1 on 1 attention with your Aquaphobic coach. We can then progress your sessions to open water if this is one of your golas, or into our group sessions when available.
We hope to be able to bring you Aquaphobia group sessions soon. Group sessions will be available for those who have developed sufficient skills and allow you to learn the next steps with others in the water.
We are in discussions to bring these to you when we can do so safely, and within any COVID19 restrictions.
