About me

Hi, I'm Johanne,  I have 25 years experience coaching individuals, parents and professionals who want to work on their career, relationships and parenting.  Clients also want support with the impact of ADHD on their studies, work and relationships .  I support my clients to identify changes needed and help them communicate with more confidence to achieve their goals.  My clients want to reduce stress and anxiety, communicate more confidently, and feel happier and healthier.  With a highly skilled, flexible and experienced Coach walking alongside you,  it will be easier to navigate the transitions and challenges you're facing.  My clients bring a willingness to learn, and a desire to change. I bring valuable insights, tools, strategies and accountability to overcome challenges, achieve your goals and get what you want from your life, work and relationships. Our coaching sessions can be dedicated to a specific area, for example achieving an academic result, or securing a promotion.  My clients learn about, and set goals around self care, work/life balance, relationships, parenting and ADHD.  My clients improve their well being, change their mindset, decrease their stress levels and achieve success in their careers and relationships.  We often do weekly sessions at the beginning of the coaching  journey and later progress to bi-weekly or monthly sessions to ensure continued progress.

"Jo listened to my issues, and through honest feedback and thorough questioning she enabled me to think about my challenges in an entirely different way. We worked through obstacles that I believed were insurmountable and came up with both practical solutions and future strategies that were clearly achievable. “ CM 2019
