PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, PADI Speciality Instructor, EFR Instructor

My husband Paul passed his open water and advanced open water in 2014 and would tell me how amazing the underwater world was.  I had mild claustrophobia and didn’t even snorkel as I feared the water. 

 

For my birthday 6 months later, I was lucky enough to go to the Maldives and agreed to try a Discover Scuba Dive experience.  I was very nervous and after a couple of attempts at staying under I began to relax and understood the beauty and wonder of the ocean.  I actually completed my open water on that holiday and have never looked back.

 

Coming back to the UK, I passed my dry suit and then advanced open water; followed closely by rescue diver and then decided that I wanted to "Go Pro".

 

I became an Instructor in March 2018 and love to help students overcome fears similar to mine and see their confidence grow and to share the amazing experience of being underwater.

 

My husband and I enjoy nothing more than to be on a live-aboard somewhere warm enjoying the delights of the ocean that so many people don’t get to experience.

 

My advice to anyone who is drawn to the ocean but also scared is to take the plunge; try a Discover Scuba Dive and you will soon see how addictive and rewarding diving is.
