The ADHD Advocate - Stephanie Camilleri
I coach people that want to tell a new story about themselves and their ADHD.
If you have ADHD, you have the same human needs as everyone else, but you also have to deal with things like hyperactivity, impulsivity, and/or inattention. This can make you believe you can’t reach your goals because you have ADHD.
As an ADHD Coach it’s my job to prove you wrong!
Did you know that having ADHD can be like having a superpower? Of course, it can also be challenging and sometimes even debilitating – but only if you don’t know how your very special brain works.
That’s where I come in. As The ADHD Advocate, I’m here to help you direct and control your superpower rather than have it control you. I understand how the ADHD brain works and more importantly, I understand what it’s like to be you. Why…? Because I have ADHD too!
Having ADHD gives me the edge as an ADHD Coach because I’ve been in your shoes and I will always have a foot in your camp. The difference is that now I have the professional training and experience to help you navigate the pitfalls and obstacles of the neurotypical world. Not only that, but I can be your Advocate.
And what does that mean…?
“Advocate” = promoter, believer, backer (yup, that’s me because I’m an Educator and Coach)
“Advocate” = lawyer (that’s me too!)
So you can see why I am uniquely positioned to help you from every angle, from your struggles to accept yourself and take control of your life, to getting the support you are entitled to under law. I can help move you from a place of overwhelm and frustration towards a place of clarity and control. Let me be your champion and help you channel your unique gifts to live a happy and fulfilling life in integrity with who you really are...

For details, please get in touch.
I coach many different types of clients. I coach adults with ADHD, parents of children with ADHD and young people with ADHD. Many of the adults and parents I coach are musicians, actors, film-makers, artists, professors, lawyers, CEOs and entrepreneurs. The young people I coach are mostly university students, high school students and some primary school students.
I don't ordinarily coach children with ADHD without first educating and/or coaching the children's parents. Parents need to understand their child's ADHD and learn about any adjustments they need to make around their own approaches to the child and the home environment in order for their child's coaching to be truly effective. Its very much a family affair!
All my clients share something in common. They happen to be the brightest, most insightful and creative people I have ever come across!!! They also happen to be the most frustrated... Unfortunately it comes with the territory. Individuals with ADHD can move mountains - its the little day to day things that get in the way. That's where I come in...
