Water Confidence (Water Phobia)
Having A Phobia Or Fear Of Swimming Pools
When it comes to water phobia – a fear of water – there are several different levels of fear. Whether you are terrified of swimming pools following a bad experience, are scared of being splashed, have taken uncomfortable swimming lessons in the past or are wary of water in any other way, it can have a real impact on your day-to-day life. Turner Swim has worked hard to create a water confidence programme that addresses these fears and delivers great results.
A lack of confidence in water can have a huge impact on your ability to enjoy some of the best parts of holidays too. Playing with your kids in the pool or walking along a beautiful shoreline are great experiences, but only if you are fully comfortable in a swimming pool or the sea. At Turner Swim we know how much a lack of confidence can affect many adults. As such, our water confidence programme is initially designed across two 1-hour sessions, aiming to ensure we deal with what worries you most so that you can enjoy being in and around water.
Overcoming Aqua Phobia
Some of our previous clients developed water phobia from being rescued out at sea and resuscitated, from playing in the river Ganges and being pulled ashore, from being thrown into the water by family members and from holiday water sport disasters. Thankfully we have helped all of these clients become more comfortable in water before progressing onto our flagship “learn-to-swim” programme. Within the water phobia course, we cover a number of water safe skills as well as teaching techniques to help stand in water unaided, move through water horizontally and get used to the face being in the water for aquatic breathing.
One-to-one swimming lessons for all abilities
Our swimming instructors are fully experienced in working with adults who have different levels of aqua phobia. We recognise that previous experiences in water can impact how differently each client’s mind and body can feel or react. As a result we will work with you at your own pace, spending time with you on the areas that you find the most challenging to overcome as well as helping to make the lessons an enjoyable experience.
