Why do I offer this? Because I want to work with people I can help. If we are a good fit, I'm confident that you will want to work with me. And if not, that's fine.
I help people who's brains work differently to understand and use their strengths. I work either in person from my home office in Cambridge, UK or remotely via Zoom video call.
For over ten years I've worked in roles from high tech to teaching. My gift is understanding people, what they want, what they are truly capable of and where they are holding themselves back. My gift is dyslexia. My passion is working with people to help them grow and realize their ambitions. Today I'd like to help you.
My coaching helps you progress at work while having more energy to enjoy yourself. It's an investment in your future self.
I work with adults who have
ADD or ADHD
You might be tired of constantly working so hard to compensate for your differences. You are ready to
stop worrying about losing your job
have the energy to enjoy your family and leisure after work is over
see your ideas become reality so they can have an impact in the world
confidently take on larger projects to progress at work
strengthen your relationships
find easy strategies that actually work
educate neurotypical people in your lives to better help you
enjoy making full use of your unique gifts instead of trying to blend in and act 'normal'
work on a passion project that you secretly wish could pay the bills
or you already own your own business and want to take it to the next level
let go of the need to be like everybody else and enjoying being the wonderful person you were made to be.
As a coach I
create a safe relationship where you can share your real fears and struggles. It's by sharing those that you get the persepctive you need to address them.
show you the best version of yourself. You are more awesome than you believe, I will show you your strengths so you can claim them. There are things that you are taking for granted, because they are easy for you. You need to know, they are not easy. They are valuable. I will help you claim that value.
hold you accountable for practising, because I know that you learn by doing, not by being taught.
How I Can
I will help you uncover what you are great at, even if you are not used to thinking positively of yourself. Once you know what your talents are I will help you make use of them in your everyday life so that you can say goodbye to trying to act 'normal' or overcompensating for your differences and enjoy success as yourself.
Successful neuro-atypical people develop ways of compensating or coping in a world that was not designed for us. You might still be using coping strategies that you developed to survive at school. However, while these strategies helped you achieve success in the very controlled environment of school they come with a cost. Put simply, they are exhausting. Now that you have left school you have much more control over your life and many more options. You don't need the old strategies, in fact, they may be holding you back.
We will uncover what activities are draining your energy and what makes you feel happy. By making small changes to your life you will start using your strengths instead of your old strategies and the result will be much more energy to do what you love.

Anna listened to my jumbled ideas and helped me identify what was important to me at work and at home.
...I wouldn't hesitate to go back to her at another crossroads in my life. Thanks Anna!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Anna was an amazing coach, gently pushing me to take ownership and be accountable. She is warm and friendly, and very forgiving for the odd ramble :)
I was starting a new job ... I sailed through my probation, and she was there throughout. She gave me a chance to talk through situations and see where that aligned with my ADHD, and ways I could use it to my advantage, as well as giving me useful coping tools to engage with everyday situations in the future.
Anna has been a tremendously positive influence. Through our conversations, Anna has helped me appreciate my value both in the workplace and as a human being, enabling me to be more at ease with my situation and to strike a healthier work-life balance... I trust Anna to listen to me, engage with me and create a safe environment where I feel comfortable. I highly recommend reaching out to Anna to discuss whatever is on your mind.
You have been so helpful, good at listening and good at explaining what the problems were and how to resolve them.
I’m feeling sharper, more capable and confident than I have for a while.
Are you living the life you want? Are you in charge of you life?
I doubt it! And I'm not here to judge you for that because I've been there. For too long my needs and wants were such a low priority that I didn't even know what I wanted.
I can help you work out what is important to you and plan your life so that you get more of it!
Get in touch if you are ready to put yourself in charge of your life.
