I have a monthly target to meet each month of ~$860 NZD (at current exchange rates) to remain in the course which is through the ADDCA. On top of this there are additional fees for getting mentor coaching which were not included in the course fees - so I have to raise money for that too. Unfortunately there's no government support in New Zealand for this training.
All my content will always be made available free - as I believe knowledge is best when shared. I 'work' (I am unemployed) as an independent researcher, advocate, writer, and public speaker for mental health - especially co-occurring ADHD & Autism - but also campaign for education around abolition, poverty, and other social issues. I am training to become an ADHD coach - and will have completed course in October 2021 - when I will start the International Coaching Federation Accreditation process. I have co-occurring Autism, ADHD, OCD (Moral Scrupulosity), dysgraphia (writing and formatting issues), dyscalculia (inability to do mental math), aphantasia (no mind’s eye – I am not a visual thinker), anxiety, and depression. I have Crohn’s disease too. I am available for speaking arrangements to talk about mental health, mental health science to do with my divergence. Please email email@example.com if interested - I am based in New Zealand.
