Client Feedback

'When I first met you, I was very fearful to play football at the level I used to play before the injury. I think you've helped me overcome my fears and lack of confidence. I really appreciate everything you've done for me. I would recommend you to anyone with similar problems'.

 

Kacper Przybylski - Semi-Professional footballer


Stephen helped me with my mental training for tennis and this really helped to keep me focused and relaxed while I was competing on the ATP tour. His knowledge of sports psychology and tennis is brilliant as he really understands what you go through as an athlete in high pressure situations.

 

Alex Bogdanovic (Former Davis Cup tennis player)


After only two hours spent working with yourself, I can feel a change in my way of thinking as well as having an understanding about my way of thinking, can't wait to find out what the future holds.

I contacted Steve as I suffered an injury playing football to a high level. I was struggling not being part of that environment and losing my identity because I couldn't play football anymore. Going through rehab and set backs can be very difficult to deal with. Steve helped me re align my goals and focus and gave me different way of thinking so I wasn't stuck in a vicious circle. He will give you different strategies to help and it help hugely when it came to dealing with my set backs and every day life going through a difficult injury. Highly recommend and he will help and support you with any situation you have to overcome or want to get better at.

I initially contacted Steve, for support to help my son re-discover his passion for playing basketball and re-build his confidence, post lockdown.

My son had played basketball since a young age and always loved it. However, having been out of the game for almost 2 years, returning to the sport his once loved was completely lost.

In addition to having lost his desire to play and his confidence, he also struggled to regulate his thoughts and emotions, associated with his performance.

Since starting sessions with Steve, my son has found his passion for the sport again. His confidence has grown in abundance and his performance continues to improve.

I’m so glad I approached Steve for assistance, his support and work with my son has been incredible. I honestly cannot believe the difference he has made.

I would highly recommend.
Steve is experienced, professional, flexible and competitively priced.
5 Stars all round.

I use to have tennis lessons with Steve (some years ago).
Fantastic coach. Helped me to use my strengths and existing skills to improve my game, were most coaches want to reinvent the wheel.
Fantastic mental coach too.
I'll always remember Steve fondly. He's an exceptionally talented, good, kind person.
I wish him well.

Steve has been working with my daughter during the second half of this year, with excellent results. She is a hockey goalkeeper, playing at a high level in the England Hockey player pathway and with her club. She had been struggling with dips in confidence that was impacting her performance and her enjoyment of the game. The sessions have been extremely beneficial to her, where Steve has used techniques that she can apply both at home and during training and at matches. After just 3 or 4 sessions, she had the situation under control and knows strategies to manage any further dips in confidence. I highly recommend Steve as a sports psychologist.

I’m a golfer that has struggled to chip for 8 years. I’ve spent hundreds of pounds on golf professionals who have correctly told me what I have been doing wrong, just not how to stop it. I have to admit that I was skeptical about my chances of fixing my issue with a sports psychologist but Steve helped me improve from the minute we spoke. After 2 sessions I was experiencing a 90% improvement.
Quite simply, I can’t recommend Steve enough.

Steve Renwick has been working with my daughter, who is a high performance gymnast, currently training 25-28hrs a week. The Psychology sessions have been extremely beneficial to her and have helped her to be more positive and increased both her confidence and self belief. Steve uses various strategies to ensure that she gets the most out of each session and her confidence in her own ability and her ability to perform under pressure have improved significantly in just 3 to 4 sessions. Steve goes the extra mile by keeping in regular contact in between each session to enquire how her training is going and to see if she is managing to use the strategies he has taught her to help her get the best out of her gymnastics training and performance. He is really accommodating and always willing to arrange appointments at short notice if required. I would highly recommend Steve as a sports psychologist.

Steve has helped me overcome my fear of jumping after rupturing my ACL and tearing my medial meniscus (both requiring surgery) through pole vault. He also removed the pressure and anxiety I felt, being far behind everyone else, after I came out of a 1 year rehab programme and has abled me to continue jumping with a better mentality than I ever had before.

Stephen provided me with 5 sessions of support, working through techniques to enhance tennis performance in competitive situations (as opposed to practice). His methods were easy to understand and follow and definitely improved my performances. He listened to understand my specific issues and concerns and provided a range of techniques so that I could employ those that resonated/worked best for me. I would highly recommend Renwick Research to otehrs

I know Stephen for many years and we used to work together but the new job is different than usual.

My 8 years old son was getting annoyed in football matches due to making mistakes fact which was having a negative impact on his performance. Stephen’s goal is to improve my son’s confidence as a talented semi-professional football player.

Immediately after the first session my son absorbed all the information and been able to apply it during the match. The results came straight from the beginning and we are continuing to work together.

I am very pleased with the services provided and I would definitely recommend Stephen.

I worked with Steve on the mental side of tennis in hourly sessions weekly, and can honestly say he has been the best influence and helped me have a better perspective and outlook on matches and the development of my game.

He gave me clear strategies to overcome certain metal barriers (such as pre match anxiety) and also helped adjust them when new challenges were presented. We went through thorough assessments to understand how and why I was having certain ‘mental blocks’ and simplified the problems, rather than overthinking and over analysing minor set backs.

Steve is really easy to talk to and share your worries with and he provides a professional service to the individual needs of his clients.
