Gillian Hayes PhD - Bright Shiny Coaching
Experienced ADHD coach for adults: professionals, academics, university students, business, self-employed, entrepreneurs.
My background is in artificial intelligence and I use what I know about making robots behave intelligently to help you understand why you do what you do, and how to outwit yourself – that’s what helped me with my ADHD.
Piles of stuff, tabs on your browser, millions of brilliant ideas, not getting started, only doing what others shout at you to do and not your own things, deadlines, glorious all-nighters, - get it under control, ENJOY life, and know the pleasure of seeing the progress you’ve made towards goals that you yourself invented.
Coaching university students is a particular speciality and I love working with professionals and academics to get you out from overwhelm (or underwhelm) and carving out your own niche in life. If you work in STEM areas - science, technology, engineering, mathematics - then be assured that we have a common language.
If you want to express something in German, that's great - I'll understand that well too, having lived for 7 years in Germany.
In common with most of us with ADHD, I have a good sense of humour that helps us to keep positive, and really understand the sheer b-minded stubbornness that helps us to keep at it. Coaching by phone or Skype, worldwide.
Coaching sessions are an hour long and you would generally have 2, 3 or 4 per month. Email and text support between sessions is included - useful if getting started on an action is an issue for you.
Call or mail me for a free, no-obligation chat to answer your questions about coaching and to see if we are a good fit for working together.
