Neurodiversity is the diversity of human brains and minds – the infinite variation in neurocognitive functioning within our species. Neurodiversity is a biological fact, a natural and valuable form of human being.
Diversity, when embraced, acts as a source of creative potential.
I am an Accredited Educational Consultant and Neurodevelopmental Specialist and a passionate advocate of neurodiversity.
I use acceptance and strength-based practices, contextual behavioural and existential coaching to help families and services to embrace autistic people across the lifespan. I employ a number of creative, person-centred strategies to accommodate the needs of autistic people and to empower them to live with awareness, love and courage in order to reach their maximum potential.

I am currently using existential/ behavioural and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy principles (under supervision) in my coaching/training sessions with children, teens and their families in order to promote psychological flexibility, acceptance and help them realise their potential.
I help parents to value the neurodiversity of their child and work with them in communication, sensory and behaviour management.
