Tailored Interventions for
ADHD and Autism in Adults

In our upcoming sessions, we'll embark on a journey to deepen our understanding of ADHD and/or Autism through the lens of neurodiversity. Our discussions will not only highlight the challenges that come with being neurodivergent but also celebrate the unique strengths and perspectives it brings to our lives. Here's a glimpse of what we'll cover together:


Embracing ADHD with Neuroaffirming Practices

Exploring the concept of neurodiversity and how ADHD fits within this framework. This session aims to shift the narrative from one of deficit to diversity, recognizing ADHD as a natural variation in brain functioning.

ADHD manifests uniquely in each individual. We'll discuss the varied experiences of ADHD in adulthood and how these can impact different aspects of life, from personal relationships to professional endeavours.


Emotional Resilience Post-Diagnosis

Receiving an ADHD diagnosis in adulthood can evoke a mix of emotions. We'll talk about strategies to process feelings such as relief, grief, or even anger, and how to cultivate self-compassion as you navigate this new understanding of yourself.


Tailoring Routines and Habits

Routines are powerful, but they don't have to be rigid. We'll delve into creating routines that bring joy and play to your day-to-day life, as well as discuss habit stacking and introducing rewards to reinforce these new practices.


Technology as an Ally

Technology offers some fantastic tools for managing ADHD. We'll explore apps and digital resources that can assist with task management, reminders, and even decision-making processes.


Coping Mechanisms and Self-Regulation

Coping with ADHD involves more than just managing symptoms; it's about finding sustainable strategies that affirm your neurodivergence. We'll cover adaptive coping mechanisms and introduce self-regulation techniques tailored to your needs.


The Power of Movement and Mindfulness

Movement and mindfulness can have a profound impact on focus and well-being. We'll discuss how to incorporate these practices into your routine in a way that feels natural and beneficial for your ADHD brain
