Excellent feedback on NDSC



3SC delivers coaching and mentoring strategies to people who live with neuro-diverse conditions on our nationwide Neuro-Diverse Strategy Coaching (NDSC) Programme. These strategies are designed to help with and to improve performance, retention and confidence within the workplace. Delivery is entirely personalised and has proven to be extremely successful.


We have delivered over 2664 coaching hours to 222 participants covering high level executive skillsets, assistive technologies and resilience building techniques. The provision has proved to be extremely successful and popular with many participants requesting additional provision beyond the initially contracted term.


But don’t take our word for it.


One of our team, Sabrina Francis of Mind Set Match shared some of the feedback from their coaching sessions:


“Before coaching I had challenges with my manager, with work, and with the Covid-19 situation. I was not enjoying my role, and not feeling supported. Coaching helped me to get things off my chest and utilise the time to plan. I learned about a Mind Management Model, which allowed me to get a better understanding of myself and not always think of the worst case scenario. I’ve learned to take a step back, think, get perspective and plan. I can communicate more effectively by planning how I want to package my messages rather than going straight in. And I’m able to better tackle frustrations. I feel good, and I feel clearer about what I want to do next.”



“Before coaching it was a case of seeing ADHD as an impairment and being in denial about some of my weaknesses. I was very hard on myself and this was creating more internal and external conflict… Though coaching my communication and coping strategies have definitely improved, I’m being more mindful about myself. This has allowed me to flourish in my job. People perceive me positively in my role and I can better recognise my rare set of skills. I feel more capable, relaxed and confident about the future. I’m happy in my current role, growing my skills.”

Mental Health Practitioner & Community Psychiatric Nurse


“Coaching has given me the encouragement to break down the things that are intimidating into digestible chunks, to make it tangible. I feel I’m on a road to success – a road I had been off of for so long – I feel now I’ve got the engine running and it’s full steam ahead.”

Police Constable


“I’ve gained respect from my colleagues, managers and peers, as they can see I’ve more control over my work schedule. I feel a lot easier about the job. I’m more relaxed and more confident. It’s helped me immensely and made a massive difference to me. I would recommend [coaching] to anyone, anyone that has any doubt in their mind, dive in. Because once you’re in, you will be so glad that you did.”

Access Coordinator


“I’ve been able to go deeper and recognise patterns that have been there for a long time and find ways to challenge and alter them. I’m able to take on new challenges, and work in a more reflective and confident way. I’m more understanding and accepting of myself. I definitely feel more confident. The coaching sessions were so helpful.”
