I have been working professionally in the field of Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) and co-existing conditions since 2007. Having these conditions within my own family, I understand just how challenging life can be on a daily basis. This professional and personal experience gives me the depth of understanding that guides my practice. My coaching and CBT is adapted for Autism, ADHD and PDA and I tailor it uniquely to meet each client’s specific needs and goals.
I provide coaching for both adults and families with diagnosed or suspected Autism, ADHD, PDA, and co-existing conditions. I believe you are the expert on you or your family. I listen and work with that expertise. Side by side, we will identify your goals, and together develop new and practical approaches to overcome the difficulties you or your family are facing, helping you to feel more in control of your life. A diagnosis is not required and coaching is often undertaken to explore the possibility of suspected conditions.

My Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) practice is specifically adapted for individuals with diagnosed or suspected Autism, ADHD, demand avoidant behaviours and other co-existing conditions. CBT is a talking therapy designed to help us recognise and understand how our thoughts, feelings and actions are connected. Because of the logical and practical approaches to realising goals, CBT can be particularly effective in working with an individual’s strengths and needs. A diagnosis is not required and CBT is often undertaken to explore the possibility of suspected conditions.
I provide consultancy, specialist mentoring and supervision for professionals within the health, education, and therapeutic sectors who work with the neurodiverse population. This includes children, young people and adults with diagnosed or suspected Autism, ADHD, demand avoidant behaviours and other co-existing conditions. As I work online, this service is offered to professionals worldwide.
It can feel like a step into the unknown when looking for support. Here’s a selection of thoughts and experiences from clients who have already taken that step with me.
Over the years, I have learned from every neurodiverse person and family I have been privileged to work with. I am committed to use this experience to develop better understanding and support approaches. As research and develop these, I look forward to sharing them here on the innovations page.
Arriving into the world of neuro-diversity can feel overwhelming. Coming soon will be a resource list to support parents and carers of autistic, ADHD or PDA children and young people and adults too.
