Tim decided to pursue a teenage dream in professional cycling at the age of 26 and within 6 months was a national medallist, earning him a place within the burgeoning world-class system at the GB Cycling team. Tim spent 4 years as a member of the male endurance team representing GB at World Championships and England at the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester.
Tim retired from elite cycling at the end of 2002 and started a 13-year coaching career with GB Cycling. Here he worked with athletes aged under 16 years. His teaching style was seen as so engaging that it is now used as the leading coaching method for under 16s across the world of cycling.
Since joining Chimp Management Ltd, Tim was contracted to a pupil referral unit to support young people and help them gain insight into why their behaviours may be unhelpful for themselves and towards the people trying to help them.
More recently, Tim has also found himself working voluntarily within a school supporting young people to understand bereavement and grief. Here he used The Chimp Model to help them work through the loss of a close friend. This work has broadened out into supporting the pastoral team to help support individuals who are struggling with school engagement.
