About me

I am an autistic therapist with ADHD supporting neurodivergent clients. I discovered I am neurodivergent late in life and finally everything made sense. I am a parent with 3 neurodivergent children and have learned the hard way that understanding is key to supporting our children to be confident and feel heard.  I now work with other neurodivergent adults and young people, to build their own personal toolkit to navigate life more confidently and authentically.

Ways of Working

I use a variety of methods to support clients find helpful coping strategies, including Solution Focused Therapy, CBT and Hypnotherapy. I find this unique combination very effective in helping clients to bring awareness to current behaviours and habits, allowing for more positive and sustainable change.
