Tracy Tresidder M.Ed PCC Golf Mind Coach
2009 ICF NSW Coach of the Year
I am a professional coach, author, lecturer and speaker in the areas of work/life balance, stress management and golf psychology. I have a wealth of knowledge and communication skills acquired through teaching Physical Education, Health and Personal Development to adults and children across the full range of public and private sectors.
I hold a Masters Degree in Education majoring in Exercise Physiology and have completed a Professional Development Certificate in Coaching at the University of Sydney. I am a member of the University’s Coaching and Mentoring Association and am a Professional Certified Coach with the internationally recognised and highly respected International Coach Federation of which I am also the Director of Professional Standards and was named the 2009 ICF NSW Coach of the Year.
My particular area of interest is assisting individuals to reach their full potential; whether it is through golf psychology, leadership development, communication effectiveness, increasing emotional intelligence, stress management or work/life balance.
I have a long association with sport; I previously taught physical education at several major high schools over 15 years and lectured and tutored at University in the area of Human Movement where I have been involved for the past 17 years. I have coached many teams and individuals in a range of sporting disciplines to personal best performances including grand final wins.
I took up golf as an interest only 10 years ago and became the 2005 Ladies Club Champion at my local golf club, placed 5th in the 2006 NSW Champion of Champions Nett Event, and in the top 20 of the 2007 NSW Golf Medal Play Off Event I found that by applying the psychology I was using with my business and life coaching clients in the golfing arena, I was able to not only bring my own handicap down but could pass the benefit of my knowledge and its application onto those who play with me.
By applying the long-proven coaching methods I use with my business and private clients to the psyche of golf and golfers, I have been able to calm the “golf gremlin within” of my golf mind coaching clients and assisted them in dropping their handicap and enjoying their golf more than ever. This can be achieved either in a group or one on one situation with remarkable success. More recently I have created photographic presentations of some of the more basic aspects of golf. Using my interactive and engaging speaking style I am able to bring new information to golfers in an easy to understand, enjoyable and memorable way.
I gain a great deal of satisfaction as I see improvements in both handicaps and the player’s level of enjoyment. I am inspired by the people that I coach and love to hear it when they in turn say they are inspired by me.
