it's ok not to be ok
In order to help people with their struggles, we know that opening up and talking things through is crucial - and often very difficult thing to do for so many of us.
I Hear You has been created as a safe platform to support this process.
We offer varying services and tailor our support to your personality. We appreciate it’s not also easy to talk about how we feel, and we are that place to come to, to be heard and understood.
We help people to be strengthened in mind, so they can find value in themselves outside their sports performance, whilst also following their dreams and achieving their sporting goals.
