About our Facilitators

  • Joanne legalized the first English speaking ADHD organization in Belgium ADHD, ASC & LD Belgium, one of the Founding member organizations of ADHD Europe. She was a former teacher before training as an ADHD /Dyslexia/ASC specialized Coach (The Coach Training Academy, London). Joanne has always been someone who connects others to what they need and wholeheartedly supports the “Underdog” whether that be in the classroom, at work or in her environment. Her objectives are to spread a real awareness of ADHD, especially ADHD in girls and women and she takes every opportunity to do this. 

  •  Donnalea’s background was in healthcare – from bedside to public health, to health promotion and community development. She is an experienced Life Coach [Coaches Training Institute] with a demonstrated history of working in the health and wellness industry. She is skilled in Nonprofit Organizations, Life Coaching with a focus on ADHD, Public Speaking, and strong consulting professional coaching [ADD Coach Academy (ADDCA)]. She uses a neuroscience and strength-based approach to help her clients develop new strategies, rituals, and skills, accentuating their positives and helping them become grounded in what’s strong within, versus what’s wrong. They then begin to spend more time/energy on what matters most to them and live more balanced lives so they can have the future they want. 

Finding your Tribe
