I never thought I would learn to swim as an adult as I had a life long phobia of water and I had a bad experience as a child. When I signed up the team at Nereids were very understanding of my fear. Margie, my coach worked with my fear. She was so patient, kind and compassionate and quite professional at the same time. In three months, we made a lot of progress. I became completely the opposite of what I was. From someone who was too scared to put my head under water to someone who loves swimming and wants to swim everyday.
I had the best experience. Diego, my swim coach was fabulous. He was good at challenging me physically as well as good at helping me overcome my psychological barriers. He was always punctual, polite, friendly, and gave good life advice too :D I totally enjoyed my experience and would recommend this swim school.
Overcoming difficulties is a standard characteristic of human behaviour. Exactly because we are all humans, there is a perfect understanding of the constant challenges that lie ahead of us. Overcoming fears is probably one of our most important tasks once they affect our daily lives. The fear of water is such an intriguing task since it is potentially a life-threatening factor.read more
When the going gets tough, the tough get going says the famous proverb. Its meaning is intertemporal and applies to all people all around the world. What is less visible at times, is that mental resilience is not a natural “gift” that only some “privileged” individuals have but a trait that all of us can develop. Swimming can be a great tool for getting there.read more
We, humans, quite often tend to put barriers on ourselves and sometimes even think in a non-positive way. Barriers to what we can do, what we can achieve and fulfil. But are those barriers actually true? Or are they just a limitation we set, which is very often due to misinformation and misconception?read more
It seems awkward, but it's true: Many people living in Australia don't know how to swim. This is a true paradox. Such an equivalent would be to live in pre-historic ages and not know how to hunt. Maybe you think that this is an exaggerated assumption, but still, the fact is that many adults drown each year because they don't know how to swim and had never taken any swimming lessons. This is really sad and should be the reason for great concern and precaution. Very often, people tend to underestimate possible dangers and overestimate their abilities and skills.read more
The evolution of humans throughout history is a fascinating though controversial subject. On the one hand, they have achieved majestic accomplishments mainly via technological development. Nowadays people can travel everywhere in the world quickly and safely, have built the infrastructure that can protect them in most weather conditions and have even started travelling outside Earth. On the other hand, their self-destructive nature is always an imminent threat as the bloody wars, during most times of their existence, have proved.read more

Preserving positive psychology is essential for our performance in life. It would not be an exaggeration to argue that it can be crucial between success and failure. The sense of self-esteem, in particular, is extremely important for the overall perspectives and meaning people give to their lives. Low self-esteem results in less effective interactions. Lack of confidence is usually obvious during human communication and is, rather subconsciously, becoming a judgement criterion.read more
