Hi, my name is Rachel Daldry (ACC, CACP, DipCouns), ADHD Coach and creator of the visual routine system Mission Magnets.
I am passionate about assisting people to work with their brain and create the life THEY want to live. My ADHD journey began six years ago when my daughter was diagnosed, which set me on a path of researching ADHD, the brain, and positive psychology.
My work began with supporting overwhelmed parents, a situation I was all too familiar with, and this is when the spark was lit inside me that I could help others not feel like they were failing. It’s a dark place that no one should get stuck in.
That spark became a fire when I began coaching and focusing on working with people impacted by ADHD. Working with another person to help them find their flow, work through their challenges, find their purpose, and feel like they are progressing is a gift.
I am an International Coaching Federation (ICF) credentialed coach and Professional Association of ADHD Coaches (PAAC) credentialed ADHD Coach. In addition to this I have completed the ADHD Clinical Provider course, which included trainings from world-renowned ADHD experts such as Dr. Russell Barkley, Dr. Ari Tuckman, Dr. Saline Sharon, and Dr. Ned Hallowell.
I am a Licensed Counsellor and have a special interest in working with couples. I have completed Gottman Couples Therapy Clinical Training - Level 2.
In addition to this, I am a Certified Positive Discipline Parent educator and have completed an additional accreditation with Dr Jane Nelson ‘Keeping the Joy in Relationships”.
I welcome the opportunity to work with Adults who have ADHD or their family members.
Here’s what a client had to say…
Mission Connect is a holistic approach to your parenting journey
ALL parenting tools fall flat
without the fundamental foundation of connection.
I am passionate about helping families be the best they can be. I know first hand how soul-destroying it is when you are always at war with your child and your house feels like a battleground.
I understand the pressures of family life and I want to bring you the clarity you need to put a simple system in place to enable you to enjoy raising your children.
Primary school age is a great time to establish a strong connection and good communication with your child.
There will of course be changes in the teenage years which is why it is so important to set your family up with a good foundation now.
I distinctly remember a couple of years ago when our house was in chaos and I was constantly at odds with my youngest daughter.
I remember thinking…
“If my 8 year old child does not listen to us now what chance do we have at 13 and older”
The thought literally terrified me,
I looked ahead at the future and it looked bleak.
This is when I took proactive action and decided to turn my family around. Now I am happy to say we have a calm and happy home… most of the time!!
YOU CAN HAVE ONE TOO!
The aim of Mission Connect is to establish a framework of understanding and a tool kit of strategies.
So you can be a PRO-ACTIVE Parent, not a Re-active one.
The monthly family connection activity teamed with extensive video lessons, live coaching calls and community support will allow you to continue to learn, grow and help you to stay consistent.
So often we make positive changes but our busy lives lead us to slip back into bad habits. Mission Connect will be there giving you encouragement and tools to help weave connection and positive parenting into your daily family life.
The Mission Connect Building Blocks show you clear and easy to follow steps so you can get the results you desire. You can progress at your own pace in your own time.
Whether you are starting from scratch and wanting to set some routines and positive parenting practices in place or you are wanting to perfect your existing system and boost motivation you will be guided to the area you should be focusing on.
The building blocks guide you to establish a connection focused, positive parenting system within your home so your family can feel like a team. Shifting your mindset to focus on solutions with your child so you can parent with confidence and understanding.

Some answers to the things that may be on your mind…
Who is Mission Connect For?
Mission Connect is for families that are willing to embrace parenting with a focus on connection, routine, fun, firm boundaries, empathy and consistency.
It is for you if you:-
- Want to have a caring and connection relationship with your child.
- Understand that implementing a routine is a family commitment
- You are keen to have more fun and laughter in your daily routine
- Are open to watching the video lessons and trying the strategies with your family
- Are feeling overwhelmed with your current family life and want to find a better way
- Happy with your current parenting routine and are keen to keep it thriving
- Want to develop your child’s independence, self-esteem and sense of security.
It is not for you if:
- Aren’t ready to make any changes in your life.
- Think that your kids should just do what you when you say it.
- Are not willing to focus on solutions rather than consequences and punishment
Do I need to use Mission Magnets to benefit from Mission Connect?
No. While I do highly recommend the use of a visual routine you don’t need to use Mission Magnets. The Mission Connect building blocks will show you the benefits of adding a visual routine, but it is just one of the tools in the Mission Positive Parenting framework.
My child is Neurodiverse, will these strategies work for my family?
Yes! Many of the members have children with ADHD, ASD, SPD, Anxiety etc. As mentioned one of my daughter’s has ADHD and she is thriving with this style of parenting and education.
What age range is Mission Connect suitable for?
The current content is geared towards families with children aged 3-12, but the philosophy of positive parenting is effective for all ages.
My life is already super busy, I am not sure if I have time to add something else...
Mission Connect is designed for busy families.
The video lessons are short, actionable tips and tricks (5-10 minute videos)
The family connection activity will only take a short time and I will provide a parent information sheet with examples if needed.
Mission Connect is about weaving moments of connection into your everyday family life.
I want to take away the overwhelm not add to it!
I am not on Facebook. Will I still have access to all the content?
Yes. All the video lessons will be posted in the Mission Connect members area.
I will also post a recording of the Live Q&As in the Mission Connect Members area
However I do recommend joining the Facebook group so you can benefit from experience and sharing from the collective community. I do have some members that have created a private Facebook account so that they can get the benefit of the community without having to ‘being on Facebook’.
What if I have tried routines and charts before and they didn't work?
Routine Charts are just one of the many tools we explore. But having a routine is more than just putting some magnets on the fridge. While that may work for some families, others will need a more integrated approach.
The Mission Connect building blocks will break down all the steps so you can easily and successfully not only add a visual routine but also nurture it and keep it thriving. Mission Connect allows you to set up a good foundation of connection, communication and co-operation. Once this is established then using a visual tool is much more successful. Some of our families don’t use visual routines and still find the content and information valuable for their families.
Can I cancel at any time?
Yes. There are no lock-in contracts.
If you do decide to cancel you will lose access to the membership site, the community and forfeit your current pricing agreement.
