When did you join ASM?
Since the start! 2013.

Tell us about your experience, lived and/or working?
For the past 14 years, my professional journey has revolved around supporting neurodivergent people in various roles, be it through coaching, mentoring, group leadership, workshop facilitation, or delivering charity service provisions across London and The West Midlands. Additionally, I am a certified ADHD Coach and hold a diploma in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), alongside counseling certificates. I also come from a neurodivergent family and have a diagnosis of dyspraxia myself.

What do you value most about your work?
There is nothing more fulfilling to me then witnessing connections form in groups specifically for neurodivergent people. When working one on one with someone I get such a buzz from seeing my clients gaining confidence, embracing acceptance, and deepening their understanding of their own minds. I also thrive on having authentic conversations and connections with people. I feel deeply grateful to be in a role that allows me to engage in enriching conversations and learn from people on a daily basis. I can honestly say that I have never had a boring day at work and I can’t imagine doing anything else in the world.

What are your areas of interest or expertise? Group facilitation and workplace support. Working with neurodivergent women, dual diagnosis of ADHD and autism and supporting autistic mothers manage the juggle (work, life and brain!).

When you’re not working, how do you relax, have fun etc? Being with my family, watching horror films, walking in the woods, signing up to random courses to better my brain, going to the gym and scrolling through Deliveroo.
