Are you worried about a young person's confidence, mood, communication, life & learning strategies?
Are you a Uni student?
I support young people aged 15-25, if it is felt that a younger aged person would benefit from support, I will consider this on a case-by-case basis in consultation with a parent, carer and/or professional and explore the option of collaborative work.
Are you living with a neurodivergent brain?
Or maybe you have low confidence, get overwhelmed, feel anxious?
You don't need to try to manage alone -
I am here to listen, to understand, to offer perspective and discuss strategies and to celebrate who you are.
I can work with you 1:1 online wherever you are and give you a weekly anchor to enable you to thrive.
Alternatively, if you have a friend or two or a family member that you'd like to form a small group with we can do that and I will facilitate and coach to achieve mutual support and understanding.
Get in touch and we can have an intial chat, I look forward to hearing from you :).

Is your young person struggling with;
- feeling understood,
- has signs of or a diagnosis of ADHD,
- can't talk to you ?
They would benefit from a trusted adult outside of the family who is interested in what's going on for them and who is in their corner and will help them be heard and understood and to feel much better about themselves.
For under 16’s I can work with parents and the young person together, the young person alone, alternate sessions or work with parents alone to start with on a 3 session package.
For 16's and over, young people can be supported independently and confidentially (unless there's a safeguarding issue) but I will check back with parents in consultation and agreement with the young person. A free initial chat can include discussion around the best the ways to engage your young person.
PYO takes referrals from teachers, social workers, mental health workers, family support workers, youth workers and other proferssionals who recognise that a young person would benefit from warm and personalised support to help them engage and grow.

ADHD mentoring & coaching: Self Knowledge, Acceptance & Growth to understand their brain and how best to work with it for a thriving life. Getting to understand your own version of ADHD is essential in utilising your strengths and managing your own needs.
Learning confidence booster packages- short AQA units are particuarly good for the ADHD interest based nervous system and for those who've lost their learning confidence and for teens and young adults who would get a real boost from studying an interest and achieving a certificate.
