We are here to create inclusive environments that enable adults with dyslexia to live healthier, happier and more connected lives. Our mission is to help the world to better understand, value and support dyslexics.

Coaching for dyslexic adults to lead healthier, happier and more connected lives.


How can we help?

  • I need support in my workplace because no one understands
  • I am struggling to manage my PhD and my dyslexic difficulties
  • I need reasonable adjustments and I don’t know where to go for help

Working within a strength-based approach we support you in your personal and business journey. This model has been known to help people cope with and reduce stress and we know those with dyslexia face significant levels of stress compared to the general population.

Through our research and international work, we know that those with dyslexia can excel in these characteristics and we are here to help you build and grow them so you can live the life that you desire.

You’re not alone!

My understanding of dyslexia doesn’t just come from a theoretical standpoint I intimately understand it because I have a lived experience of dyslexia and dysgraphia and have faced struggles, shame, poor mental health, and stigma. Despite these obstacles as a woman and parent with dyslexia I have accomplished more than I could have ever dreamed.

I was sure I couldn’t be the only one facing these challenges which is why I undertook Australian first research to identify what was really happening for adults with dyslexia and how I could help. I was right. Sadly my story is not unique and through my research, I found a myriad of challenges faced by adults with dyslexia.

It’s not easy but it can get better. It’s my mission and passion to help other dyslexics. Through my research, you can better understand yourself and all the amazing things you too can achieve when you draw on your strengths and unique talents enabling you to live a healthier, happier and more connected life.

So what might coaching look like?  

Some of the activities we do through our coaching program include:  

  • goal setting, prioritising and following through 
  • breaking things down into small tasks and sequencing 
  • creating and sticking to timelines 
  • improving organisational skills
  • building self-acceptance and awareness 
  • increase understanding of your dyslexia  
  • improving self-advocacy skills  
  • identifying positive characteristics and identifying strengths. 

To support you in your coaching journey I use a personality profiling tool system B.A.N.K™ which is scientifically proven to be accurate in assessing a person’s values. Together we can work to have a clear understanding of your personality profile and how you can best use it to achieve success. It can offer insights into your excel and the areas that you can work on to further develop professional and personal growth. This is valuable in understanding yourself and your values and how you can better understand and work with others.  This is a simplified quiz that takes 90 seconds compared to other personality tests that are lengthy and difficult to read.

Join our Dear Dyslexic Community on Facebook.  This group has been set up to talk about all things dyslexia, to provide peer support to those who are dyslexic. This is an open, safe forum free from discrimination, but not free from spelling or grammar mistakes!

I just wanted to reach out to you because I honestly feel that if it wasn’t for our sessions, I wouldn't have had the belief that I could complete a Master’s degree. I joined so many dyslexic community pages for resources for myself. I then had the privilege to meet you. Up until that point, I didn’t know anyone with dyslexia who was in academia. Talking to you and hearing all that you had achieved, and the strategies we discussed allowed and motivate me to pursue my master's. I can say I have officially completed my master’s degree and now working as an accredited exercise physiologist! I just wanted to say thank you. You really inspired me and instilled belief in me and those words of ‘Your superpower might be resilience and persistence’ have since stuck with me and always will. Thank you for not only inspiring myself but other dyslexics. I wish I had someone like you advocating for me from primary school.

"Shae has been invaluable to my business and the creative and practical processes. She has made it feel achievable and given me direction in challenging times. She has felt like a dear friend in the process. Gentle, honest, and vulnerable but visionary within healthy boundaries. She knows that a business isn't just a business, from her own personal experiences. She has helped me make many big and important decisions. I know I wouldn't be where I am now without her expertise. Deepest gratitude."

"I feel very fortunate to have had Shae Wissell assigned as my mentor under the Victorian Chamber Business Recovery and Resilience Mentoring Scheme. Not only was Shae knowledgeable and helpful about almost any business topic I broached, but she was also tremendously approachable and always had something valuable and insightful to offer. After each session, Shae left me feeling inspired, motivated, and grateful (and equipped with resources)! I can’t recommend Shae enough as a compassionate, relatable, and knowledgeable coach who was genuinely invested in helping me achieve my business goals and dreams."

"Dear Shae Thanks you for sharing your buisness wisdom and foresight with me. You have a natural ability to help. AS discussed, my latest buisness venture has put me unchartered deep waters and at times I questioned it and my own abilities thus it was refreshing to conenct with you. With your help and input I am now back in control. Thank you so much "
