MEET NATASHA, INDIGO HUB’S FOUNDER
Hi! I’m Leicester born Natasha Hickling, the founder of Indigo Hub and a qualified and certified Neurodivergent Life coach. I worked as a Special Needs Coordinator (SENCO) at an international institution in Malaysia for a couple of years but now I am back in the UK pursuing my passion through the work I do as a neurodivergent coach.
And yes, I have neurodivergent conditions myself, I was diagnosed with ADHD in my 20’s and to add to that, I’ve also been diagnosed with other co-existing conditions including autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, sensory processing disorder (SPD) and anxiety at different stages of my life, shaping me into the person I am today.
Truth be told, I am someone who endured the same neurodivergent struggles for years before being diagnosed in my 20s. It was at that pivotal moment in time that my past experiences all made sense to me. I finally gained clarity. Following that, it ignited a fiery spark within me that gave life to an innate urge to relay my knowledge and help others unlock their true potential.
And so, here I am today, dedicating my life’s journey to help those of you with neurodivergent conditions who belong to Indigo Hub beside me. To help you realign life, take steps in the right direction, and most of all, to help you view the world truly through “your eyes”.
ADHD was my key to the locked box, so what’s yours? Let’s work together to discover the key that can unleash your true potential.
