About me



My name is Bairbre Hassett. I am a BASES Supervised Accredited Sports and Performance Psychologist with a Masters in Sport, Exercise and Performance Psychology from the University of Limerick in Ireland and my main research for my thesis was in the area of Performance Anxiety, Optimal Performance and Choking. I have interviewed and worked with athletes who were former World champions in their sport, as well as National and European Champions.


Prior to this I also did a Module in Group Dynamics and Leadership in the University of Staffordshire in England. My background previous to this has involved coaching sports having run my own swim school for three years prior to finishing my Masters. Previous to that I also coached a number of sports in Primary Schools and Secondary Schools in Ireland and overseas in New Zealand as well as in communities.


I have also had the pleasure of working in schools, residential facilities and communities setting up, implementing and facilitating Personal Development Programmes for pupils for many years in schools in Ireland and New Zealand


I have always been a Sports Enthusiast having participated in a range of Sports throughout my childhood and adulthood namely team, individual sports and individual sports; Basketball, Hockey, Tennis, Swimming, Athletics, Horse riding, Kayaking and Surfing were the main sports which I participated and competed in. Now and in more recent years Surfing and Bodyboarding are my go to sports for fun and recreation.


I have been fortunate enough however to have coached Golf to juniors, Gaelic football to Juniors, Athletics as well as Basketball, Badminton and many years of Swim Coaching

I have had a strong interest in Psychology and performed well with my Masters.


My personal experience, along with my qualifications and work experience in many fields has equipped me to work with athletes, musicians/ artist and other performers as well employees working on performance, group dynamics and workplace wellbeing


"Bairbre supported me and offered some tools to help in my upcoming competition. I really enjoyed our session and felt more clearer and more confident in my ability to use sport psychology to give me an edge in my surfing“

"Bairbre did a fantastic job of keeping our youth camp players engaged by delivering fun and easy to follow sport psychology workshops which were interactive. She has an informative and also supportive approach and managed to give some educational one on one time to some participants while also delivering an excellent workshop. "
