What others are saying
"The sessions with you have shifted so much for me, in so many ways. I have had so many sessions with various coaches over the years, but through the way that you framed things I've been able to see my year completely differently.

My journey with ADHD
My son was struggling at school, so I got him assessed by a specialist and it was confirmed that he had ADHD along with Dyslexia and Low Executive Function too. I discovered these conditions usually work hand in hand together.
As I was working with him to homeschool him, I started seeing that I had similar symptoms and realised I'd had them all my life.
I was then assessed too and diagnosed with ADHD - but the inattentive and distractible type, formerly known as ADD.
After looking back at my own career, I realised that it was something that caused no end of problems with my work and even my family life. It also left my confidence plummeting.
Yet I've found ways to manage the way my brain works, tackled my biggest productivity issues and I'm helping other women too.
I am passionate about talking about and tackling ADHD through the lens of "productivity" because it's important to start destigmatising this condition.

How many sessions will I need with an ADHD coach?
While the number of sessions needed with an ADHD coach can vary depending on individual needs and goals, the ADHD coaching package I offer typically includes 4 sessions. These sessions are tailored around each individual's specific needs and goals, and are designed to provide personalised strategies and support to help manage symptoms and improve productivity. Additional sessions may be added as needed based on the progress made and goals achieved during the initial sessions. It's important to note that every individual's journey with ADHD coaching is unique, and the number of sessions needed may vary depending on the complexity of their symptoms and goals.
How long does it typically take to see results from ADHD coaching?
The amount of time it takes to see results from ADHD coaching can vary depending on individual circumstances, the severity of symptoms, and the specific goals being worked towards. In some cases, individuals may see improvements in their symptoms and productivity within a few sessions, while for others, it may take longer to see significant progress. Typically, ADHD coaching is a process that involves consistent effort and commitment over time to see lasting results. It's important to note that the goal of ADHD coaching is not to eliminate symptoms altogether, but rather to develop effective strategies to manage them and improve overall functioning. While there is no set timeline for seeing results from ADHD coaching, most individuals will begin to see improvements within the first few sessions, as they start to develop new skills and strategies to manage their symptoms. Over time, with consistent effort and support from their coach, individuals can continue to make progress and achieve their goals.
"The biggest challenge for adults with ADHD is often not just managing their symptoms, but managing the negative feelings that come with those symptoms."
