About me

Hello. My name is Rick. I was diagnosed with combined type ADHD aged 42, a couple of months after my son (who was 7 at the time)

ADHD is very misunderstood and potentially very debilitating. It can often feel very lonely, allowing negative thoughts to creep in and increase feelings of failure and worthlessness.

Every person is an individual and will be affected in different ways. There is no one size fits all. We are all unique.

What every person with ADHD does have in common is a set of skills and talents that have often been buried over time and forgotten, as negative experiences take over. 

The aim of coaching is to help you to move forward in your life, challenging the limiting beliefs that often hold us back from achieving the goals and dreams that we aspire to.

With patience, the setting of realistic, achievable goals, and commitment to the process, you can make your lives more rewarding and fulfilled. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have nearly 20 years of experience as a fully qualified Mental Health Nurse with the NHS. I have worked In a variety of clinical settings including both young people, adults, and older persons in inpatient settings, Crisis Teams, Home Treatment, Early Intervention in Psychosis, Nursing and residential home intervention to support in the management of people with Dementia. My last post was as a manager of a Community Mental Health Team for older persons. 

People with ADHD often have other mental health problems such as Depression and Anxiety. I have a lot of experience with these conditions as well as others such as Schizophrenia, Psychosis, Bi-Polar Disorder, Personality Disorders and Substance Misuse.

I have qualified as a Level 1 ADHD coach through ADHD works and completed Simply ADHD and Personal Transformation modules through ADDCA. 

I am currently working through a Level 2 Autism Awareness course.

I have a keen interest in Mindfulness. I hope to complete a formal qualification in this subject in the near future and my long-term goal is to facilitate Mindfulness groups specifically for people with ADHD/and or Autism in the future.
