Having ADHD might come with some challenges. But don’t let them get in your way of living a full and rewarding life. Forget surviving ADHD, you deserve to Thrive.

Self-awareness (self-directed attention) is one of the executive functions that individuals rely on to navigate life successfully.

Unfortunately, our ADHD tends to rob us of a level of self-awareness which, along with the other deficits associated with the disorder, can make negotiating life very challenging. This challenge is then compounded when we do not really understand our ADHD as we end up trying to navigate life with a road map that has been designed for someone else.

Lets change this by giving you the knowledge and skills you require to develop your own personal roadmap - one that will work for you.

Workshop goals

This empowering workshop is designed to help you thrive with ADHD by helping you to:

  • really understand ADHD, the executive functions challenges implicit in the disorder and the role interest plays in self-regulation
  • develop deeper self-awareness around how ADHD personally manifests in your life, including your unique gifts and your individual challenges
  • foster a healthy dose self-acceptance and self-compassion, the vital ingredients for thriving with ADHD
  • embrace your strengths and develop tailor-made strategies to manage your challenges so you can navigate life successfully
  • fill your self-care toolbox with things that will keep you emotionally and physically well.
