ACCREDITED COUNSELLOR, ADHD COACH, YOUTH & ADDICTION SPECIALIST

DIAGNOSED COMBINED ADHD. SON ASD DIAGNOSED

Roz was diagnosed with ADHD Combined in 2020.  It took three assessments for Roz to gain the diagnosis that she knew she had.  She has a long family history of ADHD which has largely been either misdiagnosed or not diagnosed. Roz is mother to a 40 year old son who was diagnosed with ADHD and Asperger’s at the ripe old age of 37.  Roz calls her son ‘her autism guru’, as he has paved the way to her accepting and understanding the world of the Autism

Roz’s background was in nursing where she adores her face to face work.  When she left nursing because of the (ADHD related) illness chronic fatigue, she chose to work with people again but this time as a counsellor and supervising counsellor.

Roz’s counsellor training was Humanistic where she gained many tools for her therapy toolbox, her favourites being the more creative approaches to client issues. Roz knows the truth in the saying, ‘one size does not fit all’. And with her ADHD clients, Roz believes that it is imperative to be able to think outside the box and work towards an individual plan to suit each unique individual.

Roz is now devoted to helping those with ADHD and those on the autistic spectrum, especially those who were not diagnosed in childhood. Roz knows the anger you can feel when the condition has been overlooked and the deep sadness that can come through lifelong  lost opportunities.

Creativity is in Roz’s blood and she has designed, presented and produced counselling workshops and visual-physical counselling tools.
