More about me:-

In the work I do with young adults living in Homeless services, my role is to

  • Provide young adults with individual support and key working.
  • Advocating on a young person’s behalf with various local authorities such as housing associations, social welfare, schools and colleges and all other relevant professionals.
  • Developing support and personal plans with the young person

As a coach I am also assisting someone in their own personal plan or simply meeting them where they are at, to begin Focusing on whatever steps they feel they can take at a given time with the knowledge of how our brains can work uniquely.

Many with ADHD present with other Co existing conditions such as ASD, Depression and anxiety , however each brain remains unique- ADHD has many traits that can impact other conditions and other conditions impact ADHD, so it is important to consider everything in tackling various traits.
