Following the expansion of our adult education training portfolio, we are pleased to have teamed up with Natalie Davis – aka The Wellbeing Girl

Based in Oxford, Natalie will collaborate with our expert team of tutors and coaches to deliver a selection of our adult education programmes including Step Up in Coaching, Active Wellbeing and Workplace Wellbeing.

Her knowledge of the mental, emotional and wellbeing aspects of sport and programme delivery will complement and strengthen our core service of delivering professional training, education and coaching on a national scale.

Natalie collaborates with Ignite Sport UK two years after launching ‘The Wellbeing Girl’ – a holistic wellbeing and life coach who specialises in combining emotional and physical health.

Natalie’s experience with sport began with roles at both Swim England and England Squash.

“Ignite Sport UK does fantastic work in a physical capacity by delivering quality coaching and education services to people of all ages across Oxfordshire,” said Natalie.

“But they also understand that a person’s mindset is increasingly becoming part of physical education and to understand others’ values we must first understand ourselves.

“Lockdown has offered people the opportunity to embrace the pause button and reflect on what has happened in their lives and how they want to progress forwards. Ignite Sport UK can facilitate positive change via its adult education programmes and I am thrilled to be part of that journey.”

Louise Merritt, Ignite Sport UK director, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with Natalie following the recent expansion of our adult education programmes.

“The importance of mental wellbeing has been heavily underlined in the past year as a consequence of the pandemic so educating adults on these important issues on and off the pitch plus in the workplace is important to us.

“Natalie’s addition means we will continue to develop coaches and support learners through their journeys with Ignite Sport UK by delivering quality education via tutors with hands-on and practical experience of specific areas.

“Personal development sits at the heart of our core values, and Natalie’s work will ensure we continue to support our learners’ studies digitally and physically.

“On behalf of my colleagues, I’d like to welcome Natalie to the Ignite Sport UK delivery team and wish her every success.”
