WHO I AM

I am a Professional Coach  specialising in Neurodiversity. My coaching career began with Coaching Development Ltd, an International Coaching Federation (ICF) accredited course. I have also completed the education modules in ADHD coach specific training with the ADD Coaching Academy based in New York and am soon starting the professional advanced course.

I have my own personal journey with ADHD specific coaching as a client and  I feel that this enables me to meet clients with great empathy and understanding as I have walked the path before them.

I also have an array of training and practical experiences in various methods which I use to inform my practice and these methods are integrated at every opportunity.

 
 
 

HERE I AM NOW

I feel incredibly privileged to be getting paid to do something I dearly love and I am grateful that I get to spend my days working with brains that function just like mine. 

One of my biggest ambitions is to change the way Ireland perceives and responds to neurodiversity with the hope of influencing the experiences of children in the school enviroment and to improve working conditions for adults. 

Every time we have a conversation about neurodiversity, we are making that change happen.
