I am a Certified Life Coach Specialising in ADHD. I am also a Certified Nutritional Therapist and Digital Wellness Coach, and I coach from a holistic perspective with the understanding of the interaction between the mind and body. I work with teenagers, adults and parents, helping them to understand the neurological reasons for their behaviour. After identifying the areas that need support we work together to create strategies to help meet the determined goals, providing scaffolding to support the client whilst they develop new habits and improve their life skills.
I trained at ADD Coach Academy (ADDCA), the global leader and pioneer in the specialty arena of ADHD coach training and one of the few comprehensive ADHD Coach Training Programs fully accredited by ICF and PAAC. I then specialised in Executive Function and Social Skills development, training with both ADDCA and the "Seeing my time" programme from Marydee Sklar. I am an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) with the ICF (International Coach Federation) and an ADDCA Associate Coach.
As a Certified Practitioner of Nutritional Therapy, I integrate diet into ADHD coaching sessions where required, in order to reduce inflammation in the body, and increase the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin and hence lessen ADHD symptoms. Given the frequent co-morbidity between ADHD and Digital Addiction, I have studied the Neuroscience of Addiction with Consciously Digital, and Certified as a Digital Wellness Coach.
I started my coaching career after ADHD was diagnosed in my family and I struggled to find the right resources to help my family members both in home and in school. During training, I discovered I also displayed most of the characteristics of ADHD and was officially diagnosed. The realisation that there was a reason behind her challenges was life changing and I became determined to help other people in the same situation.
I regularly attend conferences both in the UK and in the USA to keep up to date with the latest research. I treats clients holistically, addressing diet, sleep, exercise and environmental issues as these can affect the severity of ADHD.
