I am a life coach specialising in coaching adults with ADHD and everyone for confidence and wellbeing, including anxiety, binge eating disorder and sleep problems.
Life coaching is the process that helps you move on - whether that means making changes to your life, improving organisational skills, leaving behind bad experiences and bad memories, learning to handle anxiety or rediscovering the belief in yourself that you may have lost along the way.
I love to listen - everybody's story is different. There are many common goals in life, but getting there is a very individual process. When you are coaching with me, every session will be tailored to your way of thinking and experiencing the world so that you are able to make the change you want to make in a way that fits you and your circumstances.
Whether you want to make changes in your personal life, at home or at work, coaching will help you make the difference.
A very large part of my work is with adults with ADHD (both diagnosed and undiagnosed). Having worked extensively with children with ADHD and undertaken further study, I decided to coach adults as I have an understanding of how your neurodiversity affects your life as an adult. People are affected by ADHD in different ways so my sessions are tailored to suit you and what you are looking to get from coaching. This may be practical help with organisation or future plans, help with relationships, with impulsivity, focus or emotional regulation. Your brain may operate in a different way but you can still achieve what you want. Let's make your life easier by working out what works for you - no more trying to squeeze yourself into a one-size-fits-all hole! A coaching session or two can also help the families and friends of those with ADHD, to increase understanding and to make life a little smoother.
I also coach emotional eating and binge eating disorder. People don't over-eat because they're greedy, it's because there are emotions at play which have not been dealt with in a more appropriate way. My coaching will help you to deal with emotional issues - be they deep-rooted or recent - as well as using practical methods to break the 'auto-pilot' the brain has developed around eating. If you're concerned about how you eat, when you eat, what you eat and your body image, let's talk. That's the first and most important step!
Whatever you are looking for, please contact me for a free telephone or video consultation - so that we can talk about what you need and check that coaching is right for you.
At present, all sessions are by telephone or Zoom.
As everyone's life-balance is different, I am happy to offer weekend and evening appointments.

A handful of testimonials:
AB, United Kingdom: Linda has been an amazing help for me. I was struggling with managing my ADHD, and she not only helped with some practical elements but helped me realise where my strengths were. She really understood me, and listened to my issues, and helped me build a plan and mechanisms.
AF, Sutton Coldfield: I needed some practical advice on how to manage my time running a business with ADHD. I wasn't sure what to expect but it felt from the first like I was talking to a supportive friend. Linda asked perceptive questions which helped me gain insight into the issues I have with time and attention management and the resulting anxiety. She at no point told me what to do but she guided me to find solutions which work for me. On top of that, she also did a brief Neuro-Linguistic Programming session with me during one of our coaching sessions. I came to it with an open mind, neither negative nor expecting a miracle. Since then, however, I have noticed little by little positive results... and more positive results... and more... I almost hesitate to say this could be a life-changer for me, but it's looking that way.
Laura, Gloucestershire: I found Linda through The Life Coach Directory. I have a fairly recent diagnosis of ADHD and it has been a bit of a struggle. Linda was very kind, listened to me and came up with some practical strategies to help me manage my anxiety, and put into practice some solid ways of organising myself and beginning to overcome my talent for procrastination. The sessions were fun and always helpful, and the work done has been an ongoing help to me.
Rebecca, Suffolk: Linda is a compassionate, skilled person and has the ability to get to the heart of the problem.
In our coaching sessions, she always made me feel like she truly cared. .Just by following her lead and putting in the work, you will come out a new stronger ‘You’.
Sue B, Essex: I visited Linda to deal with pressures from the past and present. Linda has a very unique way of helping you achieve the life you deserve. So glad I saw Linda and would thoroughly recommend her to others.
Carole, Colchester: I had three Life Coaching sessions with Linda and I can honestly say that I felt progressively better after each one. I was encouraged to talk about my issues and gently prompted to work my way through my feelings and emotions, not worrying about getting upset and tearful but seeing that as a release of pent up frustration. Linda encouraged me to look at things from a different perspective and we practised some exercises that helped me to develop strategies to resolve my problems for myself, which is the main aim of Life Coaching. I found it to be an amazingly rewarding and calming process and would not hesitate to recommend Linda to anyone who is feeling troubled by any aspects of their life. She is wonderfully empathetic, perceptive and totally professional.
Meg, Kent: Linda gave me life coaching before my driving test, and it was an immensely helpful experience! It definitely helped with my anxiety on the day, and Linda herself is such a caring, calm, warm person - speaking to her helped put a lot of things into focus and perspective, and I would thoroughly recommend her!
