DIAGNOSED ADHD, PROBABLE DYSLEXIA, DYSCALCULIA & DYSGRAPHIA

If you are struggling with understanding who you are or have recently been diagnosed with ADHD and have no idea where to go from here, Alex is passionate about helping clients in this situation.

Alex allows you to gently take off any mask you’ve been hiding behind to unravel and explore all those questions you have about yourself and accompany you on your journey of ADHD self-discovery. Alex will work with you and your ADHD traits to understand and unpick all those years of not understanding yourself. Digging deep to discover what’s important to you, your life goals, purpose and eventual transition to complete self acceptance and content happiness.

Alex only found out about her ADHD in her mid 30s, following what was misdiagnosed as ‘a nervous breakdown’. Having lived all her life being told she was purely suffering with Depression with Anxiety – it never rang true for Alex and the treatments were never effective. Alex now sees she indulged in several self-medicating/stimulating behaviours to manage her ADHD symptoms without even realising. Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria manifested in overachieving and to the outside world, she appeared a successful person, however inside she felt far from it.

Despite this, Alex carved out a very successful career in Social Care and Housing.  She has managed regional services both in senior and front line roles. Due to her clarity, energy and passion, Alex was able to naturally motivate previously low-performing into high-achieving teams as well as ensuring best practice models for service delivery and service user involvement.

Following her own ADHD diagnosis, Alex has been on an intense learning and self-growth journey and now sees ADHD as a mixture of Superpower and Kryptonite. ADHD has gifts no one could imagine, but with the sweets comes the sours, and this has led to Alex experiencing the difficulties and challenges ADHD brings. It was a huge relief to realise this was the reason but it was coupled with a sense of sadness it had not been recognised sooner.

Alex is passionate about working with Adults with ADHD to understand their own superpowers and to manage the Kryptonite as well as truly understand themselves, their dreams, wants, desires and feel authentically you. It has become her life’s ambition to raise awareness and celebrate Neurodiversity.

Having experienced discrimination in the workplace because of her ADHD, Alex works tirelessly to ensure she is able to provide the most accurate legal and procedural support and guidance to clients she works with. Alex now also offers Neurodiversity Training for employers to understand and get the very best from their staff.

Alex is passionate about helping clients with employment law and discrimination, SEN law, corporate social responsibility, training, development and public speaking.
