Tim Buckle

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.

With Stress being a major issue in the construction industry we wanted to focus our first Site Managers meeting of 2019 on wellbeing. It was such an insightful workshop for our team from a personal and a work perspective. Tim was able to weave in so many elements in the day from stress management, decision making and managing others (whether they’re young or old). However, the way he was able to explain the Chimp Model I such a personal enabled it to resonate with the team brilliantly. As a company we are now supporting our staff to continue with the model by attending the 2 day workshop in May.

“Tim made me understand how thoughts and feelings can hijack my mind and behaviour”

“Chimp session – it went into lovely detail about “chimp” as I’ve heard of it before”

“Tim Buckle gave me a few things to think about”

“Resonates with what I experience and trying to look at what more I need to do”

“Chimp session – outlined many things that I am already aware of but gave me a more proactive intention to deal with them”

“Inner chimp – makes sense now!”

“Tim Buckle – very helpful information very useful”


North Derbyshire Tinnitus support group

Tim worked with us to develop a programme of support, based on the Chimp Model.  He explained the model to the group of affected students, and helped them to understand why they felt the way they did, and why they were experiencing particular feelings, and the actions that could stem from these.  This doesn’t really do justice to Tim and his impact on the group; his interaction with the group was expert, his ability to engage, inspire and shift thought patterns is outstanding, and his character and warmth really facilitated the student’s ability to start to process the impact of what had happened.  He also worked with our staff to introduce the chimp model and how it could support their work in the classroom and beyond, and this has helped all of our teachers and support staff to better understand how young people think and behave, and what we can do to help them, and to help themselves.

Hope Valley College

I would like to thank your organisation and Tim Buckle for the excellent workshop delivered to our staff and trainees.
Tim delivered to our group with a passion and understanding of our specific requirements. Multinational, multi-cultural, different ages, experiences and objectives were no issue and all participants took away a great deal from the workshop.
The young athletes were engaged and keen to learn more, the coaches reflecting immediately on their role.
In all, a very positive experience with a delivery method that was both professional and engaging. Message well received. We look forward to building on our relationship with Chimp Management.
