My communities feel heard and held...


My mission is to spread awareness of PDA and help families create a calmer more compassionate home to live in.

I do this through workshops, webinars, individual coaching for parents, and therapeutic groups, alongside my main annual event – The PDA summit!

I want to empower parents to believe in themselves so they can let go of unrealistic expectations on how family life should be and enjoy the reality of life living with PDA.

More About Me

"Nicola gave me practical and realistic advice I could implement straight away. Having tools to instantly calm myself has had an impact on the whole family."


"I've learnt so much from Nicola in the guest expert session she did for my group, in how we can be inclusive for neurodiverse people as well as raising neurodiverse children."

Today things are different...

The biggest changes were our thoughts and beliefs of how we should parent a child.

Changing our language, reducing demands, looking after our wellbeing and understanding PDA, have made a massive difference to our lives.

Today, life still has its challenges, but now we know what we’re dealing with.

We still make mistakes at times as life constantly changes.

We know what life is like for our son and we understand why we’re seeing certain behaviours. By learning about PDA we’ve been able to implement strategies and alter the way we communicate and it’s made our family life a great deal easier.
