Learning Coach


Over 5 years ago, I discovered the work being done by an amazing lady Olive Hickmott to support those with specific learning difficulties such as Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, ADHD and since then Asperger's Syndrome and Autism. 

Having coached people in the workplace who feel they struggle to assimilate and integrate information, text and sequencing tasks, I was naturally very eager to find out more.

I made the decision to train with Olive and now work with individuals at all stages of their lives including those in the workplace, at college and university as well as with families who would like to support their children in their education.

To quote Olive, "What makes the Empowering Learningapproach so different is that it:

  • Is not just another spelling or reading programme; it develops visual memory, a prerequisite for all sorts of learning skills
  • Builds on the individual's strengths, especially their visual skills
  • Is grounded in how successful people learn
  • Separates the skills of teaching and learning
  • Adopts a person-centred approach, moving the focus away from what doesn't work to build on existing skills
  • Explains how stress is related to learning and how this can be simply overcome
  • Reflects how learning differently can result in exeptional skills
  • Offers simple skills that are invaluable for anyone but especially those with challenges relating to literacy, numeracy, concentration, memory and clarity of thought " 


If you would like to find out more about how we can work with you and/or your family then please contact me on 07920 004639.
