In a nutshell:
Neurodiversity Consultant, Trainer and Counsellor
Care Services

I am a neurodiversity trainer and consultant and the founder of The Cooking Counsellor workshops; celebrating and supporting those who are neurodiverse to build their own life recipes for success, emotionally, socially and professionally.

I help organisations understand and support the diverse needs, and strengths, of their employees and customers who have different ways of thinking and learning.

I provide coaching and mentoring for neurodivergent individuals who want to start and grow their own businesses.

I’m a published author, artist, poet and public speaker – let’s get creative!!

I have worked with additional needs charities and organisations for over 35 years, providing national, bespoke childcare solutions for their clientele. I was diagnosed with Autism and ADHD at the age of 52 which explained, not only my ‘pattern thinking talents’ but also my struggles and challenges with the everyday tasks / interactions that others seem to find so easy.

As a qualified counsellor and matriarch to a neuro-spicy household (including Tigger, the counselling cuddle cat!) I diverted my knowledge and skills to create The Coaching Den 4 Life – designing visual, interactive workshops on various aspects of neurodiversity that enable the participants to walk away with practical toolkits to help their clientele.
