About me

I support adults with ADHD through behavioural therapy, ADHD coaching, consulting and education. 

  • Behavioural therapies including CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy)​
  • ADHD coaching
  • Mentoring
  • Talking therapy
  • Pre and post diagnosis support and education
  • Psychoeducation
  • Exercises and workbooks
  • Accountability and body-doubling sessions
  • Online via Zoom, phone, or face-to-face 

Diagnosed in 2017 at the age of 44 after a suicidal crisis, I then became an advocate for reducing stigma and widening understanding of ADHD through the charity I founded, ADHD Action. 

I then turned my many years experience as a business and mindset coach, mentor and trainer to support others with the condition. 

I spearheaded the All Party Parliamentary Group for ADHD, and I am commended in Hansard, the official parliamentary record, for my advocacy and lobbying work. 

I am a frequent media spokesperson on ADHD. Recent appearances include BBC Victoria Derbyshire, BBC Radio 4, Radio 5 Live, LBC, The Times, The Mirror, Women's Health, SEN Magazine, Additude Magazine, The Guardian. 

​As well as working with individuals and businesses, I also train and coach charities, psychiatrists, GPs, teachers and social workers on ADHD.

I am also a co-founder of ADHD Unlocked, a unique community and learning platform for adults with ADHD. ​

I co-authored the UK scientific consensus paper for females with ADHD published in BMC Psychiatry in 2020. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been coaching, supporting and mentoring individuals and businesses since 2008, and working with adults with ADHD since 2017. 

I am ILM certified; a member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC); and certified in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) via the International Association of Therapists. 

Currently studying for an MSc in Psychology.
