What Do I Offer You

Individual mentoring and coaching. Group seminars and talks.

Mentoring

I work with you to get you through some of the challenges in life. Specifically around how to maintain a satisfactory and enjoyable life while struggling with PTSD, depression or adult ADHD.

Life Coach

Together we work on developing your life to be rewarding, enjoyable and (maybe) a little challenging. Goal setting, targets, enabling skills development and other stuff to keep you focussed and developing.

Talks/Seminars

I am available to present to schools, institutions, jails, self help groups, community groups or any other group of people on my experiences with these conditions and what I did to survive and build a new life.

Who Am I?

So may times I have had to try to explain who I am or what I am. It is never an easy thing to do because, as a result of my life time of ADHD, I have experienced so much and really didn't know what to tell prospective employees was my area of expertise. Although the ADHD ensured that everything I did, I did to 100% and to a very high quality - so much so that when others couldn't keep up, or couldn't work to my high expectations, I would get angry, frustrated and, eventually, depressed. It was when this depression got so bad that I ended up seeking professional help. Without it, I probably wouldn't be here now. Eventually, the official diagnosis was Depressive Disorder, PTSD and Adult ADHD. With the support of my mental health team, family and close friends I have now turned my life around and now spend my time enjoying the natural world, admiring architectural and technology beauty and helping others who are suffering with the same conditions I experienced. I am not a medical or mental health professional; when we work together you will be working with a person of experience not theory, a person of empathy not sympathy and a person focussed on helping not capitalising. For more info on my background check out the separate "Who Is This Guy?" page.

Will You Benefit From My Help?

While anyone can benefit from a little guidance and support, my programs aim at particular groups where I have had personal experience. I do not believe in teaching/coaching/guiding from a book - if your guide hasn't experienced themselves then who are they to advise you. As a result my programs are designed to specifically support the following:

PTSD

PTSD

One on One

PTSD and C-PTSD sufferers (and their families) generally live a silent existence, trying to hide the condition from the outside world. I will work with you to help you emerge from your shell and build a new life where you can enjoy yourself and feel valued.

Depression

Depression

One on One

This condition drives us deeper and deeper into that dark pit from which there seems no escape. But there is, I have been there and I have climbed out, let's spend some time together finding your way out and then a direction to travel that keep you away from it.

Adult ADHD

Adult ADHD

One on One

Perfection, frustration, anger, order, tidiness, keeping busy, lack of focus, bright shiny things. Your world no longer needs to be like that, there is a life of enjoyment out there when we can find your key to turning off the over revving engine in your mind.

Life Mentoring

Life Mentoring

One on One

Life is not an easy thing to do - we have to have goals, be social (to varying levels), be acceptive, be responsive, be disciplined - no wonder we get lost sometimes. Here we will work together over a long time developing you as a person to provide a happy and rewarding life.

Life Coaching

Life Coaching

One on One

Like Mentoring, this program works towards a happy and rewarding life but, instead of over a long time, it is over a shorter period (6 - 12 months) where we set targets, assess behaviours, consider ways forward and then leave you to do it.

Career Coaching

Career Coaching

One on One

Here we work together to decide what you want to achieve in your working life and find a way to get you there. We will develop a career progression matrix, list of skills needed, relationships to be developed and networks to get into.

Talks

Talks

Groups

I can provide talks in many formats - from 45 minute lectures through to full on two hour with intermission multimedia events. They are suitable for groups as small as local self help groups through to international mental health symposia.

Seminars

Seminars

Groups

With similar content to the talks, my seminars are more intimate affairs where delegate interaction and experience sharing is encouraged. Sessions can be delivered in a single day or across period of a few weeks. Each seminar is tailored to its audience.

What Do People Think Of Me

As you would understand, most clients require privacy around these sensitive subjects. Due to that I will only provide anonymous testimonials. If it is really needed I am happy to ask previous clients to call you and discuss how they benefited from working with me.

How Much Does It Cost

Your program will be personalised to your specific needs so it isn't possible to provide exact pricing here. I understand you want to know roughly what you would be up for, I am the same and hate it when websites don't tell you how much things are seems to be secret. So to give you an idea here is a rough indication of the fees.
