After just 4 weeks of coaching my quality of life improved immensely.
Whether it was giving a gentle push, a new way of looking at a problem, or a tool/resource I hadn’t discovered, Linda’s gentle input slowly built into lasting improvements in my life.
– Dr. D. M.
I have created ways to have accountability for things I want to do but never get round to and a new and effective system of managing my workload.
I have realised and changed my approach to work/life balance as I have seen the benefit doing things that I find satisfying and that meet my need for social connection. This has motivated me to take action where before I would have procrastinated and never got round to doing anything.
I had reached a point where I was beginning to think that I had been diagnosed with ADHD too late in life and was too old to change. With people in my life echoing that feeling with comments like “that’s just what you do” or “I’ve heard it all before” when I vowed to change, I was all for giving up.
Each week Linda made observations and suggestions that meant I focused on what I wanted to do and what I could achieve. Her encouragement to keep trying, even when things didn’t work as I’d hoped, was just the inspiration I needed. I now know I can make small changes which make a big difference to my life and self-esteem.

Linda is a pleasure to work with, and her gentle approach really helped me take baby steps towards positive changes to enable them to become firm habits over time. Working with Linda has given me so many new strategies to help me, and given me new perspective on some of the areas I struggle with, and has given me the tools to be able to identify these and work out how to make them easier. For me, it really is true that the right medication is 50% of the help, and the right coaching is the other 50%. My mental health has never been better, and I feel more in control of my ADHD, as well as more accepting of it.

My time with Linda has probably been one of the most transformational periods of my life. After being recently diagnosed, Linda helped me distinguish with what was and wasn’t my ADHD and in the case of the former she taught me useful strategies to help me overcome or deal with them. She also praised me at interventions I’d put in place myself.
She mentored me through a very difficult period with my work and I have emerged wiser and far, far happier in a role which is more meaningful for me. A huge thanks Linda for seeing me through those good times and bad with your useful advice and understanding manner. It’s been an absolute joy and I’d recommend Linda highly.

Linda has been a delight to work with and has been a great help with finding tools and approaches to help with some of the issues that come from living with ADHD, as well as encouragement to build the habits that help things stay effective.
She’s also helped me look at things I want or need to do and break them down into concrete tasks and to prioritise them so that things can actually get done.
I’ve been struggling an awful lot over the past three years while waiting to switch my medications from one that only somewhat worked to one that actually works quite well, and Linda has made an enormous difference!
– “Tina”, Software Engineer
I was officially diagnosed with ADHD (mainly inattentive type) at the end of March this year and I never would have reached this place without Linda’s support and guidance.
It’s a relief to know I’m not mad, useless, ditsy or just plain inept! I learned a lot from our sessions together: 6 projects is too much, and I can sometimes end up saying yes to things on the hoof. I’m now taking time to assess what is really possible in the time that I have available.
Linda helped me to find the right pathways to diagnosis and would listen to what I was finding challenging each week with empathy and understanding. Thank you!
One thing that particularly made me feel at ease with Linda was the fact that she has family with ADHD, and has been working in the area of ADHD coaching for over 20 years. Her knowledge and advice was invaluable.

With Linda’s help, I made changes to my work and other aspects of life which enabled me to pass the probationary period in my new job, having lost my previous one for reasons related to ADHD.
These changes included new ways of planning and organising time, tasks and materials for work.
Knowing about ADHD is one thing, but to do something about, it a good coach like Linda is irreplaceable!
– Anonymous, Educational Psychologist
Working with Linda has already made a lasting change in my daily life and habits. The beginning of the pandemic meant that the strategies I’d been using to get things done no longer worked.
I couldn’t invite round friends and family to force me to clean the house from top to bottom before their arrival.
When on a deadline at work, I couldn’t take a computer to a room with no internet connectivity to ensure working without distraction – instead I had to be online all the time.
You have shown me ways of overcoming these problems by building sustainable daily routines which allow me to get things done without the constant cycle of stress and exhaustion.
– “Sarah”, Librarian
I really liked your gentle, non-shaming style that accepted all of my ADHD-ness without judgement.
I loved having the between session text coaching – this was massively helpful at times. I loved having my ideas on how I should be living challenged (e.g. highly structured) and instead finding a more flexible, ‘menu’ style that works so much better for me.
I also loved that we used trial and error – if it didn’t work that was ok, we just tried something else. I continue to use the ‘menu’ system and self-care principles we discussed.
The biggest achievement was starting Jiu-Jitsu group classes, which was so massively out of my comfort zone and brought on such huge for weeks.
I genuinely would never have done this without you. My life is massively enriched because of being supported in pushing through my fears and starting this hobby.

I am unable to take medication for ADHD, and would have been at a complete loss without Linda’s help, expertise and encouragement.
With Linda’s coaching, I was able to turn several embedded bad habits into newly embedded good habits – truly life-changing sessions for which I am eternally grateful.

We just wanted to thank you so much for everything.
He is not ‘out of the woods’ & might never be completely but he is stronger, more confident & calmer.
We now know that with the right support he can find a place in this world of ours. Getting to know you has changed his life and we are so grateful.
Sitting here today I just needed to let you know that there are angels & that you are one of them.
