About me

If you are reading this, the chances are you have, or think you may have ADHD. Maybe you feel constantly criticised, burnt out, or overwhelmed in your personal life, relationships, or responsibilities. If any of this sounds familiar, and you are ready to explore where your strengths are (and you do have strengths, you really do!), then you’ve come to the right place.

I am Janine, a qualified strengths-based ADHD coach, with a background in Cognitive Neuroscience. I specialise in working with women with late diagnosed, self-diagnosed, or suspected ADHD. My clients range from young adults, to parents, and grandparents. I combine coaching techniques with my knowledge of ADHD brain wiring, to help you identify and understand the unique workings of your brain. My empathy and lived experience of being a young person, woman, parent, and partner, with ADHD, helps me support you to increase your self-compassion, confidence, and motivation to use your strengths to build a life you love.

Some things that are common in ADHD, are rejection sensitive dysphoria, impulsivity, social anxiety, task paralysis, and non-linear thinking. I work flexibly with clients, am sensitive to, and incorporate in my coaching approach, the different ways ADHD processing differs to neurotypical processing. It is what makes ADHD coaching different to other types of coaching, and it is what makes working with ADHD clients, so rewarding.     

Work, relationships, structure, and emotional regulation are areas I work on a lot with clients; but as we discussed, ADHD processing is often non-linear, so many clients come with one issue, only to find there are other areas they want to prioritise, which then positively impacts the issue they came to coaching with in the first place.    

If you would like to talk to me about where you are now and where you want to be, then booking an initial consultation is the next step. Then, if you feel that having coaching with me is right for you, I recommend booking a block of 10, weekly coaching sessions. The general structure for a block of 10 sessions is:    

Weeks 1-2: Goal setting and identifying strengths.

Goals may shift and change during the 10 weeks, as your confidence, self-compassion, and priorities change.

Weeks 3-9: Focus Sessions 

Used to identify, unpick, and rebuild the thought processes that are needed for strong progress to be made. It is in these sessions that we identify and use strategies that work with your brain.

Week 10: Summary and Review

This is an important session where we reflect on what has changed for you. Following this session, you will receive a written summary of your coaching journey, including the resources you have learned to use.

Separately to my coaching practice, I offer workplace, and education sector, ADHD training. These training sessions focus on the Cognitive Neuroscience of ADHD, and how to leverage ADHD wiring and strengths in the workplace and the classroom.

Further information

Did you know that many people with ADHD have some kind of cooccurrence (additional neurodivergence as well as their ADHD)? Autism, Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) and Dyslexia are all really common. I myself have ADHD, DCD (commonly known as Dyspraxia), and Dyslexia. I see this as my own neuro-spicy cocktail, and I understand that many of you reading this will have your own neuro-spicy cocktail too. Please bring all your uniqueness with you to coaching.

All neurodivergences are brilliant in their own way and every individual is different. This is what makes life interesting and it’s what makes coaching the best job in the world, for my brain anyway.

If a Life Coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Life Coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

You can access the ETNA centre from the front via a convenient ramp. Alternatively, there is step access available from the rear car park through patio doors, as well as platform lift access to the car park. A disable toilet is on the ground floor.
