How I beat my fear of swimming – at age 56!

We were lucky to have Daily Mail journalist Wendy Leigh visit Jan to learn how to beat her lifelong fear of water and begin to learn to swim. 

At that moment, my lifelong fear of water was born. No matter how hard I tried, or how much money was invested in swimming lessons, I never got over it.

You can read the full article to learn about her journey. 

The article details the process that Jan uses to slowly and carefully remove the fear that many people feel about swimming and to begin to build up confidence in learning. 

At last, in my fifth decade, I can swim. I may not be winning medals, but I know next time I’m on holiday, I won’t be sitting at the side of the pool, but slipping into the water.
And, who knows, maybe I’ll even swim a few lengths.
