ADHD Lancashire Support Services 
For Adults, Parents & Professionals

Meet Bernadette


I'm the Founder and Director of ADHD Lancashire, bringing almost two decades of dedicated advocacy for individuals navigating life with ADHD. As a Certified ADHD Life Coach, I specialise in assisting adults embarking on their exploration of Adult ADHD, offering support to minimise feelings of overwhelm, stress, and anxiety. My passion lies in providing structured guidance and coaching to enhance the professional and personal aspects of people's lives.

ADHD Lancashire was founded in 2011 to provide support, empowerment, and nurture the potential of adults, children and family members living with ADHD.

Bernadette is not only a Certified ADHD Life Coach but has also earned her ACC International Coaching Federation accreditation. Bernadette is also the author of Living With Adult ADHD: Embracing The Chaos With a Smile. Her expertise and dedication shine through in how she supports families and adults with ADHD, bringing a deep understanding and empathy to her work.


Her personal journey adds a unique perspective, having lived through over 50 years in a neurodiverse family that includes ADHD, Dyslexia, and Autism. These experiences have given her invaluable insights that she is eager to share with others.


If you have any questions about ADHD, whether for yourself or a loved one, don't hesitate to reach out!

You can schedule a complimentary 20-minute Zoom call with Bernadette to explore your concerns and discover the support that ADHD Lancashire can offer.

She's more than happy to answer any questions you may have!

ADHD Journey

"Navigating Your Path to ADHD Assessment: Take Your Next Step Confidently!"

If you suspect ADHD and are considering an assessment, follow this clear pathway:

Start by discussing your concerns with your doctor. If necessary, request a referral to the Adult ADHD NHS Assessment Service. Take along your completed Adult ADHD Self-Report Tool.

Alternatively, explore a Private Assessment through national organisations. If medication will be considered as a treatment option, check with your GP about prescribing medications through a shared-care agreement after your psychiatrist determines the appropriate titration (Right medication and dosage).
