Swim Without Fear

By December 22, 2012

Follow me on:

As adults we feel emotions of inadequacy, and this is fully exposed in a swimsuit, so it's important adults feel safe before they can relax and learn. When working with people who have had traumatic experiences they first have to accept their fear of swimming, and then they need to learn how to trust themselves in unfamiliar territory. This takes time, patience and understanding from the teacher.
