DIAGNOSED COMBINED ADHD

Danielle is a qualified Humanistic Counsellor, Relationship Therapist and Life Coach.  She has worked as a counsellor for nearly 15 years and is a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

Danielle has extensive experience of working with ADHD clients facing a range of issues, including stress, anxiety, depression, overwhelm, lack of self-esteem, anger, grief and loss, addictions, parenting and relationships.

As a child, Danielle was often labelled ‘daydreamer’ ‘drama Queen’ and ‘stubborn’. During her pre-diagnosed adult life, she often became frustrated by the fact she couldn’t manage tasks that seemed to come so easily to others. Parenting, cooking, managing household tasks, sorting paperwork, chronic boredom, dissatisfaction, and forever seeking something new and exciting have been constant challenges.

After being diagnosed, with combined ADHD at the age of 41 Danielle has both personal and professional experience of working with individuals who have either been diagnosed ADHD, become a parent of ADHD or married to ADHD.

She is committed to raising awareness of ADHD and is passionate about expanding her knowledge with tools and techniques that might be of assistance to clients with ADHD.

As a mum to two boys aged 9 and 12 and two step children aged 14 and 18, receiving her ADHD diagnosis and developing a greater understanding of herself has been life changing. She is now able to make sense of so many parts of her life that had previously made her feel embarrassed, inadequate, unintelligent and at times downright crazy!

Danielle has a great understanding about living with undiagnosed ADHD and is passionate about finding ways to create the best possible life for clients both before and after diagnosis. She has a great deal of empathy and compassion for her clients and loves that they feel they can can talk freely about all their ADHD issues without fear of being judged.
