What you'll do

Do you wish you had more motivation? Is the fear of failure holding you back?

In this intimate Online Experience, I will help you learn about the positive mindset that has helped me to have a career in professional sport spanning over four decades. I'm an athlete who throws backward, but I am always thinking forward.

The most powerful muscle we have is in our head and in this interactive session, you will learn how to build a positive mindset and change your way of thinking to see adversity not as a barrier, but as an opportunity to improve and learn.

We’ll start with some light meditation to clear your mind. You’ll hear my stories of resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity. And, you’ll learn how to set goals and start to achieve them with my 4-step guide.

You'll also have the opportunity to quiz me, see my Paralympic medals, and watch footage of me competing!

This is truly unique, and all you have to bring is an open mind.

*If there isn't a date/time that works for you, please message me.

**A great experience for team-building. Book a private experience for your team. Send me a message if you have any queries.

***A great experience for private groups looking to gather virtually! Whether you're connecting with family, friends, or co-workers.

Conducted in English. Requires a good Internet connection.

I'm a 6 x Paralympic athlete for Great Britain, I competed at Atlanta 1996, Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Beijing 2008, London 2012, and Rio 2016. I've won 6 Paralympic medals and I'm currently preparing for Tokyo 2020.

I was born with cerebral palsy, and while it challenges me every day of my life, I was instilled with a tremendously positive attitude by my parents, as well as many great coaches and mentors along the way, who taught me how to harness the energy of positive thinking to overcome and embrace adversity.

Throughout my years as a professional athlete, I've come to realise that life is full of adversity, struggle, and challenge, but it's in these moments when we feel most alive and have our greatest achievements. I've helped many people overcome adversity with positive thinking and now I want to inspire even more people.

Stephen took us on a journey of positive thinking. We meditated, had activities including finding our achievement animal, and were generally elevated during the session. We left with a new outlook and skills. I recommend Stephen's experience to anyone.

This experience was provided by my workplace, Code42. And I'm so grateful for the opportunity because wow, did I learn a lot. Stephen was above and beyond amazing. One moment, I transported to a world of sunshine and another moment, I belted out my negative thoughts. I also seriously took a lot of notes because almost everything Stephen shared resonated with me. My favorite takeaway (and it was genuinely hard to just pick one) is: "Whether I win or lose, I'm still the same person. The people who care about me are still going to care about me." I needed to hear this and I'm going to carry this reminder with me for the rest of my life. Thank you, Stephen, for showing me how to identify and achieve my values.

I would recommend this experience to ANYONE! Stephen is funny, inspiring, and thoughtful. I got a lot of great specific tips on what to implement in my life, and how to be very intentional about positivity and goal setting moving forward. The time flew by, and I was absolutely engaged for 100% of it. Thank you, Stephen, for being a bright light and using it to help others!

Stephen's experience was great. It was super inspiring to hear his story and approach to life. He covered a broad range of topics and each of them felt like something I could apply to my life. Highly recommended!
