Online Parent (Child Over 17) Peer Support Group
Monthly Online Peer Support Group – Parents of Children aged 17 and over
We understand being a parent is tough. When you’re a parent to a 17+ year old child with ADHD, there are additional challenges people in your friendship circles may not understand. This online group is a safe, supportive, and confidential environment for people living with a child diagnosed with ADHD. It’s an opportunity to openly share (if you want to) and connect with other parents who genuinely understand what you’re going through.
For many, a support group reduces the feeling of isolation and creates an opportunity for discussion. By sharing ideas and information with others, many people are able to find new ways of coping. Most people who attend feel that the emotional support they both give and receive is of great benefit.
Our Online Parent Support Group is a safe place for people to discuss personal matters and recordings are not permitted. All participants must have their camera and microphone on in order to participate. Please do not be offended if we ask you to turn your camera on and unfortunately you will be asked to leave if you are unable to do so. This is a sign of respect to all participants and the privacy of the group.

Swantje is a Sydney-based ADHD life coach. Apart from her specific ADHD coach training (ADDCA), she has a strong academic background (BA HONS Philosophy) and is passionate about her ongoing professional development and ADHD advocacy.
Swantje was born and raised in Germany and after living in several European countries settled in Australia 20 years ago. She has raised 3 ASD/ ADHD children and received her own diagnosis 5 years ago. After a short period of grief, she experienced her diagnosis as a huge relief: it gave her the opportunity to make sense of her gifts as well as her organisational struggles.
In her past careers, Swantje has worked as an academic research assistant as well as a bespoke tailor in the entertainment industry – she is proud to have been able to access the theoretical as well as the practical side of her own brain. Her coaching style instills this confidence in her clients.
In her holistic coaching approach, Swantje has successfully worked with these client groups: Adult late diagnosis, Adults parenting ADHD Children, Young Adults (uni students and professionals), Year 11 & 12 High School Students, clients with ADHD/ ASD and ADHD/ SUD.
