WORKING WITH ME
I have a client-centred and CBT / evidence-based therapy and coaching practice. I aim to provide a safe, supportive and empathic environment, and I use proven helping methods that are grounded in science.
I have a deep understanding of psychology and how the ADHD brain is wired, and what living with ADHD is like.
As an ADHD specialist, my role to help you understand your ADHD, and work with you exploring those patterns and behaviours that work for and against you, and be supportive partner in helping you you reach your full potential.
Discovering I have ADHD wasn’t just the beginning of changing how I felt about myself but also the first step in learning to navigate a world designed for and inhabited by people with normally (neurotypical) wired brains.
Working with me
I follow the clinical guidelines for helping adults with ADHD (within the my scope of expertise):
ADHD therapy and coaching covers three areas:
- Discovering how your ADHD mind works: providing you with basic information about the neurobiology of ADHD and how it translates into some of the common struggles adults with ADHD have.
- Helping you gain greater awareness and understanding of how ADHD impacts how you think, feel and act: unpacking challenges, that you feel are holding you back in your personal, academic or professional life.
- Helping you create new strategies and habits for success – uncovering your unique strengths, exploring practical tools and tips to work around your difficulties, and experimenting with works best for you.
The end goal is to help you set goals, develop strategies, be more organised, and help you take actions, so you they able to consistently get things done.
I have a flexible and yet structured approach when working with ADHD clients, and work with each client to establish what works best for them. This flexible structure includes each of these elements:
Initial intake session: This 90-minute session we cover helps me better understand the you and and what assistance you need and how we move ahead.
Follow-up sessions: These 30- to 60-minute sessions focus on helping you understand how your ADHD is wired and the impact has (and has had) on you, exploring and co-creating strategies and habits that work for you.
Between-session communication: There are days when things don’t go as we planned and a quick text message or or email between sessions may help get you back on track.
I’d love to work with you
