Dr Elizabeth Pummell

Senior Lecturer Sport and Exercise Psychology

About

I studied psychology at the University of London (Royal Holloway College) before completing a Masters in sport and exercise psychology at Loughborough University and where, subsequently I was awarded a doctorate. My doctoral research was focused upon junior athletes making the transition to senior level. I am a BASES-accredited (British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences) sport and exercise scientist, as well as a British Psychological Society chartered sport psychologist, and HCPC registered practitioner psychologist. I have worked with athletes from a number of sports but specialise in work with equestrian competitors and tennis athletes, helping them make the transition to higher level performance. Before joining Kingston University, I was Head of Sport Psychology for the elite training programme at one of a small number of international high performance tennis centres in the UK. I am still active within tennis, working closely with the International Tennis Federation.
