Family based approach

Need help to achieve your goals in life? I use an array of communication skills to provide coaching services that give you the tools for success. In addition to 1-on-1 consultations and group sessions, I regularly host workshops and seminars for people who are interested in developing their own coaching techniques.

Exceptional Vision:


Empowered kids, youth and parents with the skills and knowledge to understand and advocate for their unique educational needs in a supportive community.


Inclusive educational facilities and educators with the knowledge, skills and tools to meet their legal and moral responsibilities in providing access to education to all.



Watch them Shine! An introduction for educators and parents to improve the educational outcomes and guidance of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) by applying knowledge of executive functioning delays in creating effective, reasonable adjustments in the classroom.


Let Them Shine is a resource to support your teachers in supporting divergent learners. The adjustments are free and can be implemented today. These adjustments will have an immediate positive effect on students and your teachers' wellbeing. Start from a strengths-based perspective, add empathy guidance and watch them thrive.


When you have a deep understanding of the neurology of ADHD, you will understand the effects upon the classroom and learning. Academic research of neurology and ADHD has turned our appreciation of this disability on its head. What we once thought ADHD to be is wrong. Combine this new knowledge with the realisation that each presentation is unique and therefore each solution must also be unique. However, you are the expert in your classroom and of the children in your care, add the creative solutions you and your students collaboratively implement in light of this knowledge and you will create effective reasonable adjustments.




Strength based approach

At Exceptional we place your child as the focus and moving forward not dwelling on the past. We provide early educational intervention for you and your child, empowering your child empowering you so that you may continue to reinforce new behaviours, new concepts in the home being able to teach the teachable moment. Unlike other programs, this makes it much more affordable and the consistency between locations is a powerful learning accelerator.
