Psychological Wellbeing Coach
Hi I’m Vanessa
Hi! I’m Vanessa, founder of unscrambledminds.com. I’m a Coaching Psychologist, and mum to two boys who have Autism Spectrum Disorder, with one of the boys also having ADHD. My son now aged 14yrs (also known as the ‘Boy Wonder’) was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 4 (unofficially) and 6 (officially).
Our journey has been a roller coaster ride with a lot of learning, trying, testing and re-testing methods that help in managing our days in the world of ADHD. Navigating through the emotional dis-regulation, poor impulse control, inattentiveness, disorganisation and all round BOREDOM!! led me to become dedicated in understanding and managing ADHD.
I have a bachelors in Applied Psychology and a masters in the Psychology and Neuroscience of mental health, which helps a great deal in understanding the psychology and neuroscience behind my neuro-atypical children.
I work with adults and young adults with ADHD as well as parents (of neuro-atypical children) to reach their own well-being mastery. The constant struggle to help my son live a full and rewarding life, without constantly having to conform to a world that still cannot get its head around ADHD, has led me to become an advocate for ADHD.
I want to reach out to those with ADHD, or who suspect they have ADHD and other parents and carers to share my knowledge and tried-tested-re-tested methods for living in a family with ADHD which has given birth to this blog.
