I am Here to Listen
I provide information about ADHD for adults, teens and children. I support People going forward with ADHD assessments, understanding what the assessment means for them, and what it means for their child. I support clients who have been told they do not meet the diagnostic criteria via the NHS in getting the answers they need about what is going on for them.
I provide weekly free support groups for adhd adults, adhd children, adhd teens and adhd parents, which is constantly expanding and offering more support groups for different areas. I have online support groups for sleep issues, relationships advice and dietary needs as well as an open support group for anything that may be coming up.
I advocate for families who have been abandoned by the NHS or private services, that are hitting a wall and do not know where to turn. I do this in the form of advice, education, information, support and contact.
I reach out to schools to ensure the correct and all available support is being put in place, I aid in completing forms, applying for DLA and PIP.
I organise local events specifically for ADHD members, to aid in building a community of families who are then able to support one another. I have a community of other health care professionals who’s expert skills lay in areas out side of my own training, allowing me to refer people on for their unique support, or to gain the support from these professional in aiding my own clients.
I offer support with work place plans, school plans, college and university plans, to aid the ADHD individual in ensuring they are getting the right amount of support.
I am trained in breath work and meditation and I offer these services locally and online, as well as providing free print outs and routines.
I am a trained counsellor who works with ADHD clients on a daily basis, I am open to different methods of counselling. Methods that are more suitable for clients with ADHD. For example counselling outside of an office space, and being more accommodating with clients being unable to make each weekly appointment or running late for appointments. My aim is to be able to offer counselling sessions to ADHD clients without the strict boundaries associated to traditional counselling.
I am trained to the level of specialist in ADHD, and qualified to provide ADHD assessments, aiding families in getting an idea of what is going on for them, and offering support and referrals to NHS or private services.
I will be running workshops in the new year, to teach about ADHD, and aim in reducing the stigma. I will also be running parent training classes, to aid parents in supporting their ADHD child with methods specifically aimed at ADHD children.
I am an ambassador for ADHD UK, where in the new year I will be running support groups online via their organisation, as well as raising funds, and providing support where needed.
