I specialise in helping adults who have ADHD. I have a masters degree in psychology, and I have ADHD. I understand the struggles ADHDers face and I am deeply passionate about helping others with ADHD succeed in life.
I focus on empowering my clients with an understanding of ADHD and how it impacts their lives, and together exploring new thinking patterns, strategies and habits that help them reach their full potential.
In addition to helping others, I enjoy trail running, competitive masters swimming, and off-road triathlons. I am also involved in raising ADHD awareness through sport.
I discovered that I have ADHD when I was doing my masters degree in psychology.
As a child with undiagnosed ADHD I struggled with school work all the way through to university. Sport was the one place where I felt I did well, and perhaps my saving grace as it helped tame my hyperactivity and gave me a place where I felt good about myself. I was a competitive swimmer, track athlete and studied martial arts eventually teaching martial arts as a certified instructor – and being active remains a big part of my life.
I was always fascinated by the mind. I imagine I was influenced by the struggles associated with being “neuroatypical” – being wired differently to others. Human behaviour intrigued me and I completed my postgraduate studies in psychology. I specialised in neuropsychology, which I loved because it explained how the brain works and how the way we are wired influences how we think, feel and act.
After spending some time in academia I entered the corporate world, where I have successfully held local and global management and leadership positions for over 15 years. This was not without struggle.
The experience I have gained along this journey has given me a deep understanding of the unique challenges we ADHDers facing life, relationships, and business. I am passionate about helping those who (like me) live with ADHD, thrive personally, academically, and professionally.
