About Chris

Chris Cole

Why I do what I do:

To support individuals to understand they are okay just the way they are.

Sometimes the environment a person is in has not or doesn't support their individuality and this can have a negative impact on how they see themselves. I support individuals to recognise their strengths and unlock their potential to be their best self in this world.

Life experience:

My interest in learning differences started in 2007 after two of my four boys were assessed with dyslexia. The lack of information and support available lead me to work with other local parents to start a support group.

Unique Minds was established to help children, parents, schools and adults understand these learning differences and support them to reach their full potential through knowledge and awareness.

In this journey I found I was dyslexic. Even though I learnt to read and write I still find many aspects of my life are impacted by my dyslexia. Understanding how my brain works has helped me find acceptance and to embrace my way of thinking.
