I know what it’s like to find the hard things easy and the easy things hard. But I’ve harnessed my brain to do a lot of brilliant things. You can too. Let’s figure it out together.

I am an ADHD coach, or, more broadly, a neurodiversity coach specialising in executive dysfunction, and with a deep understanding of autism as well as ADHD.

ADHD coaching is perhaps the most commonly-used term for the kind of work I do, and is, formally, what I’m trained in. However, I’m both ADHD and autistic myself, and a significant proportion of my clients are also autistic, with or without ADHD. I tend to work most often with people in the arts, tech, and helping professions, entrepreneurs and academics, as well as LGBTQIA+ people. Before I was a coach, I worked in tech, academia, and as an artist and touring musician – so if you’re a creative or geeky type, we’ll probably have a lot in common!

I also have a particular interest in working with neurodivergent people who are also physically disabled or chronically ill. This can affect the experience of executive dysfunction in ways which I find some ADHD coaches don’t fully understand, and which can shape how we work in unexpected ways. If you choose to work with me, know that I will do all I can to support you in your whole experience of being in the world as you are, whatever that might look like.

Coaching is, first and foremost, a conversation, and coaching with me is a conversation with someone who really understands your unique brain wiring. We might work at the level of making day-to-day life more manageable by experimenting with strategies and tools that really work for your brain, because we created them together. But we’ll also spend time looking at your big dreams, and what you really want out of life. If you’d like to, we might work with creative methods like art to explore those things, or spend time being with the somatic signals your body is sending, as well as working with words. However we choose to work, we’ll be focused on action, looking at what you can do, and how to actually implement your ideas (which is often the tricky part!) to get you closer to where you want to be.

I trained at ADDCA, one of only a few ICF-accredited trainings for ADHD coaches in the world; I hold ADDCA’s AACC and ACCG (advanced-level) certifications and am also trained in working with families. I am also a qualified cognitive hypnotherapist and can work using these methods on request.

Coaching is an unregulated industry, and practicing in as safe and ethical a way as possible is very important to me. I’m an ACC-credentialled member of the ICF (working towards PCC) and abide by their code of ethics. I’m fully insured and receive regular supervision and mentoring to make sure I can offer you the best coaching experience possible.

I am based in the UK, but I work with clients from all over the world. If you are in the UK, I accept Access to Work funding for coaching or coping strategy training.
