Annika McGivern is a Performance, Sport and Exercise Psychologist. Her passion for performance psychology was born from her own experience as an athlete in the world of high-performance equestrian sport, where she subsequently gained over ten years professional coaching experience.

Her years competing and coaching in high-stakes environments challenged her to develop excellent communication skills and a passion for understanding the psychological factors that drive people towards, or away, from success. Combining this experience with a BA (Hons) of Psychology from the University of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada, and a MSc of Sport and Exercise Psychology from Ulster University in Belfast, Annika now works in across the sport, fitness and business sectors in Ireland, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

Her approach focuses on developing the skills needed by individuals and teams to excel under pressure in the areas that matter most, bringing insights about the tangible skills we need to perform, lead, and communicate effectively from a sport context and successfully applying them to a business context.

Annika is passionate about teaching effective and empathetic communication, alongside learning and habit change skills, in all her work, as she believes these two areas are essential to the successful implementation of mental skills. Annika has been a guest lecturer in Cognitive Behavioural Coaching on the UCC Masters in Personal and Management Coaching programme with Dr. Celine Mullins. She is firm believer in promoting well-being through sport and business and has conducted research on current mental health challenges in equestrian sport.

What People Say about Annika:

“We engaged with Adaptas to develop a time management skills programme for our staff and the feedback has been hugely positive, for both the generous content and the interactive delivery methods which ensured maximum discussion and participation from attendees. Participants have reported receiving countless, and immediately usable, practical tips and hacks from Annika to start taking action towards a long-term change approach to enhanced time management. The science of procrastination was also introduced to participants, working through real life examples along with ways of tackling it and how to identify key triggers to help change their course of action. These insights have proved so beneficial for our employees. The facilitators at Adaptas always know how to invigorate a group with the expert knowledge and passion they bring to their training programmes”
Charlotte Callaghan, People Program Manager, Video Game Industry

“We have been working closely with Annika over the past year as she continues her journey on helping people identify and overcome the mental blocks that are preventing them from achieving their goals. Annika was a key speaker for our in-house seminar and online webinar series, where she had endless amounts of questions from the audience, who were so eager and keen to learn from her. Her strategies and approaches to wellbeing through sport and fitness aim to help enhance not only performance, but quality of life too. Annika is a wealth of knowledge and we are delighted to be associated with her at BLK BOX.”
Catherine McLaughlin–Marketing Manager, BLK BOX

“Thank you from all of us at StoryToys. It’s been a great learning experience. Your knowledge on the subject and reading materials were insightful. And positivity was great for Monday morning workshops! 🙂 Most importantly the programme opened up a platform for us to discuss freely about challenges we face and possibly share our coping mechanisms and experiences in the future with the group. Thanks again.”
