About me and my therapy practice

If you have an ADHD or ASD diagnosis or feel you are struggling with traits associated with these conditions, then I can help.

ADHD can be hugely impacting on a person’s mental health and is still largely misunderstood. I feel very passionate about breaking down the shame & ignorance that surrounds the myths, that often hold people back from seeking the support they need.

Living with ADHD as a child, is often a very difficult, turbulent time, which impacts on family life, attachments & friendships, learning & schooling, on top of the crippling negative beliefs, isolation & lack of self-worth that become part of how you think & feel.

All these factors take their toll on the individual & as an adult living with ADHD, it can feel overwhelming, leaving the person feeling lost, anxious & low.

In working with me, the counselling process will help you to feel connected with someone that understands the challenging nature of ADHD.

Developing an awareness & understanding of your unique brain wiring is incredibly valuable & forms the basis for self-acceptance, in being able to let go of the self-blame & negative beliefs, that have often formed.

Practice description

As I work alongside you, we can navigate together, your best path through the confusion & overwhelming feelings, experienced in day to day life, which can often leave the individual feeling stuck & helpless.

I believe that through building a safe, non-judgemental, therapeutic relationship, a more resilient, positive way of looking at daily struggles can be adopted, where you can feel more in control of your life.
