What is an ADHD life Coach?
"Certified ADHD Life coaches" are professional coaches trained to coach adults, teens, and children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to better manage their symptoms and live to their full potential.

Bernadette has a natural way of coaching because she is intuitive, curious, and approachable. Bernadette believes, people must be able to discuss, explore, and make sense of their issues in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
Bernadette employs a combination of challenge, creativity, observation, and accountability in her approach to working with others. I guarantee that you will have a professional and ethical coaching experience and that you will come out of our session with much more clarity than you did at the beginning!
Bernadette has had decades of invaluable experience with managing ADHD and experienced being a parent of a child now an adult with ADHD. Her role as a serving founding member of the ADHD Lancashire group for the past 10 years has allowed her the opportunity to meet many people in the ADHD world.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Support Group Meetings
Really informative and non-judgemental group sessions. When in the process of a possible diagnosis (or even after a diagnosis) it’s really difficult to know what information is useful and trusted. Within the group the information is made clear and concise and it’s always comforting to hear other people’s experiences. The group is very relaxed and open and was really enjoyable to attend. I will definitely be attending future group sessions.
Support Group Meetings
Hi Bee, you offer great support for adults with ADHD. I was worried at first, coming to something like this, but I found everyone so supportive and felt at home straight away. It’s a safe place that you have created and we’re learning so much in a relaxed environment.
Private Coaching Sessions
I have been working with Bernadette for the past two months. During her coaching sessions, I am learning a lot about the areas my ADHD has been affecting me. Bernadette has given me some useful tools to use when I become overwhelmed with my workload to reduce my procrastinating. Looking forward to learning more about myself and my ADHD!
