Are you a woman who loves climbing but fear often gets the better of you? It’s so frustrating to know that you have the ability but your fear keeps getting in the way, right?
I know how that feels. I’ve been climbing since January 2017; I loved it immediately and wanted to practice as much as I could. I climbed indoors and out, as a member of an all-female climbing club, Vertigirls, and with anyone it felt good to climb with. In September 2017 I fell off a bouldering problem and injured my ankle. It healed quickly and I was climbing again within 3 weeks but my fear became overwhelming and, sometimes, paralysing so I researched overcoming irrational fear in climbing. I wrote a series of blog posts documenting my experiments and they became popular with other women who experienced irrational fear. I am currently developing and testing Mind Games mental training and you can sign up for it (in the Brighton, Sussex area) here.
If you prefer one-to-one sessions, I offer one-to-one life coaching at the wall; it’s really useful for working with stretching your comfort zone in any area of your life because it gives you access to real-time stress (rather than talking about past events), how you handle it, and opportunities to make tiny changes, which create big changes you want to see in your life. Contact me for further info or if you have questions.
Best wishes, Julia Fry 🙂
