Supporting ADHD Parents to Help Both Ourselves AND Our Children

Navigating the ADHD diagnostic pathways while being neurodivergent is not easy. It can be incredibly challenging when we're also doing this to support and advocate for our children. Understanding our stories and beliefs about how ADHD has shown up for ourselves allows us to recognise the power of advocating for new stories to show up for the next generation.This week's guest, Dr Tom Nicholson, lectures at Northumbria University and is a Neurodiversity and mental Health Specialist who has delivered hundreds of speaking events and guest lectures on ADHD, Mental Health, Neurodiversity, and Neuroinclusion.On this episode of the ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Kate and Dr Tom Nicholson speak about:The Stories we are told as we grow up that have become beliefsTom's support from his mother's advocacyTom's experience in education and the attitudes toward ADHD in the 90s The different archetypes of ADHD mothersNeeding more awareness and advocating and less overhyped celebration of ADHDEmpowering Parents with the best way to help their ADHD childrenThe positive power of teaching How to interact with the educational system with ADHDBeing High-achieving and being 2E alongside ADHD and AutismBurnout alongside neurodivergence Navigating a neurodivergence diagnosis within the healthcare system You can find out more about Dr Tom Nicholson's work here: Look at some of Kate's ADHD workshops and free resources here.Kate Moryoussef is a women’s ADHD Lifestyle & Wellbeing coach and EFT practitioner who helps overwhelmed and unfulfilled newly diagnosed ADHD women find more calm, balance, hope, health, compassion, creativity, and clarity. Follow the podcast on Instagram here.Follow Kate on Instagram here.Find Kate's resources on ADDitude magazine here.

Dyslexia and ADHD - The ALMIGHTY Connection!

Check out all of Kate's online ADHD on-demand resources here.Did you know that many people who have been diagnosed with dyslexia, even in childhood, may also be living with undiagnosed ADHD? ADHD and dyslexia are distinct conditions that frequently overlap, confusing the nature of these two conditions. It is (very cautiously) estimated that 30% of those with dyslexia have coexisting ADHD. Neurodiversity experts now believe that neurodivergence NEVER travels alone, meaning that there will always be at least another coexisting condition. So, if you have an ADHD diagnosis, there's a high chance of another overlapping neurodiversity, such as dyslexia, autism, dyscalculia and vice versa. ADHD doesn't cause dyslexia; it's simply a co-existing trait. Likewise, if you have a dyslexia diagnosis, get curious about whether ADHD may also be in the mix, especially if you have suffered from other issues such as overthinking, anxiety, RSD or PMDD.This week's guest is Natalie Brooks, founder of Dyslexia in Adults, a company that aims to help ambitious dyslexic adults thrive in the workplace.On this episode of The ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Kate and Natalie speak about:Natalie's experience of growing up with dyslexia Natalie's dyslexia and undiagnosed ADHD journey The interplay of ADHD and Dyslexia Looking at the intersectionality of neurodiversityTaking a more holistic approach to diagnosis How dyslexia shows up for different people What you can ask for at work when you have dyslexia Dealing with other people's expectations of you when you are DyslexicNatalie's dyslexic role modelsGet access to Natalie's free download: Decode Dyslexia at Work here >> https://dyslexiainadults.myflodesk.com/bwxf930nnsLook at some of Kate's ADHD workshops and free resources here.Kate Moryoussef is a women’s ADHD Lifestyle & Wellbeing coach and EFT practitioner who helps overwhelmed and unfulfilled newly diagnosed ADHD women find more calm, balance, hope, health, compassion, creativity, and clarity. Follow the podcast on Instagram here.Follow Kate on Instagram here.Find Kate's resources on ADDitude magazine here.

What you Need Know About the ADHD Gut-Brain Connection

Despite many of us feeling challenged by undiagnosed ADHD for most of our lives, there is also a way to thrive alongside our ADHD. On today's episode, I talk to Dr Miguel Toribio-Mateas, known affectionately as "The Creative Scientist," a distinguished clinical neuroscientist and nutrition researcher in the UK. His expertise centres on the intricate gut-brain connection, drawing on a rich, real-world scientific foundation rather than purely academic pursuits. Dr. Miguel's academic journey includes degrees in Nutritional Medicine and Clinical Neuroscience, culminating in a Doctorate focused on Mental Health and the Gut Microbiome. Navigating life with ADHD and autism, Dr Miguel possesses a deep, personal understanding of the specific dietary needs of neurodivergent individuals. He emphasises the critical role of dietary choices in enhancing executive functioning, sensory processing, and emotional regulation. His philosophy is captured in his words: “By understanding and addressing the nuanced relationships between what we eat and how our brains operate, we empower ourselves to make choices that not only nourish our bodies but also support our neurodivergent minds in navigating daily tasks and interactions more smoothly.”On today's ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Dr Miguel and Kate spoke about:Miguel's journey to his ADHD diagnosis Bringing a more feminine softer energy to science The relationship between the gut and the BrainADHD and disordered eating ADHD tendencies toward extreme behaviour Having self-compassion around your diet and what you eatHow self-compassion can actually help your gut health Identifying sources of rejection sensitivity dysphoria Dr Miguel offers personalized clinical consultations and has crafted a comprehensive course titled "Thrive with ADHD," available at drmiguelmateas.com/thrive-with-adhd-course.

How to Live a Well Lived Life with Dr Gladys McGarey

It's not often you get to seek the wisdom of a 102-year-old, but when it's a neurodivergent doctor and life coach, you know you're in for a profound conversation. She tells me her secrets to a fulfilled life of gratitude, acceptance and authenticity.I was absolutely honoured to speak with the inspiring and fascinating Dr Gladys McGarey, who was 102 years old at the time of her new book’s publication. I read her wonderful book, A Well-Lived Life, and loved every page and the spiritual wisdom she shared—I had many epiphanies after each chapter. After spotting the signs of a neurodivergent brain—she shares her dyslexia, learning, and education journey—I knew I had to reach out to her team and ask her to join the podcast! During our conversation, Dr Gladys shared her story of being held back in her early years of education due to undiagnosed dyslexia and how, through her different learning styles and curiosity, she is now recognised as a pioneer of the allopathic and holistic medical movements and a founding diplomat of the American Board of Holistic Medicine.

Following her late ADHD diagnosis, she embarked on a path of self-discovery, having grappled with chaos, addiction, burnout and mental health struggles. Rosie’s big U-turn came after life-altering events led her to run the London Marathon in honour of a friend who she lost due to mental health struggles. Rosie’s ADHD diagnosis gave her an understanding of why she was unable to find her place in the world. From then on, she made a promise to herself to spend the rest of her life doing everything she could to support those with ADHD to turn their own story of struggle into a story of strength.On today's ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Kate and Rosie speak about:Rosie's chaotic life before her ADHD diagnosisHow Rosie started her yoga journeyRosie's journey to enjoying running and movement and how this began to change her lifeThe deep connection between exercise and meditation to calming her ADHDRosie's addictive patterns, including how this impacted her exercise routine How to maintain novelty and motivation with exercise and movement Changing up our routines to help create motivation Understanding and being aware of our individual brainsThe shame we hold and letting it go to move forward with more balance and self-acceptanceHaving a deeper why for having a healthier routine to combat the challenging daysRosie's new ADHD coaching practice Connect with Rosie, her coaching work and podcast hereLook at some of Kate's ADHD workshops and free resources here.Kate Moryoussef is a women’s ADHD Lifestyle & Wellbeing coach and EFT practitioner who helps overwhelmed and unfulfilled newly diagnosed ADHD women find more calm, balance, hope, health, compassion, creativity, and clarity. Follow the podcast on Instagram here.Follow Kate on Instagram here.Find Kate's resources on ADDitude magazine here.If you'd like further support regarding any of the topics today, head here:Help with alcohol addiction<a href="https://www.samaritans.org/how-we-can-help/if-youre-having-difficult-time/i-want-kill-myself/" rel="noopener noreferrer"...

Before starting today's episode, why not check out Kate's ADHD workshops and free resources here?Ever since reading about the concept of 'low-demand parenting,' which is helping many neurodivergent parents regulate their neurodivergent kids, I've been desperate to talk about this on the podcast.

I'm delighted to welcome this week's guest, Amanda Diekman, an autistic adult, parent coach, and author in the neurodiversity space. We discuss dropping demands, restoring calm, and finding connections with our children.Amanda became a leading voice in the movement for low-demand parenting practices with her book Low Demand Parenting, published in July 2023.  She lives with her husband and three neurodivergent children in an intentional community in Durham, NC.On today's episode of the ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Amanda and Kate spoke about:Amanda's son's autism diagnosis journey What it means to be a 'low-demand parent'Re-defining how you want to parentAbeism - what does this look likeLetting go of parenting demands, habits or standards that aren't benefiting you Releasing all the expectations, pressures, shoulds and conditioning to help create a calmer environment for our familyThings you can drop or change to make parenting easier for youMaking communication safe for your autistic or neurodivergent child What it means to 'un-school'Dealing with systems and schools as a neurodivergent parent Asking for accommodations for you and your childrenLook at some of Kate's ADHD workshops and free resources here.Kate Moryoussef is a women’s ADHD Lifestyle & Wellbeing coach and EFT practitioner who helps overwhelmed and unfulfilled newly diagnosed ADHD women find more calm, balance, hope, health, compassion, creativity, and clarity. Follow the podcast on Instagram here.Follow Kate on Instagram here.Find Kate's resources on ADDitude magazine here.

ADHD Parenting Rage and Emotional Dysregulation

Check out Kate's brand-new workshops and resources here.No matter how much you love your children, any parent will admit that you have had a moment (or several!) of 'mom rage', and if this is you, I hope this conversation will help you release some of the shame you may feel.

I hope you find this conversation inclusive, helpful, healing, funny and relatable. And listen out for the very last few minutes, where we address some key practical tools to helping anyone out who feels this emotional dysregulation most days. This week's guest is Minna Dubin, the author of MOM RAGE: The Everyday Crisis of Modern Motherhood (Seal Press).

The Powerful Connection Between Migraines and ADHD

Migraines and ADHD are something I hear about a lot in my ADHD female community. I also relate to this from a personal perspective with one of my ADHD daughters suffering from migraines, as well as quite a few friends. Migraines can be a lifelong debilitating condition alongside the many other symptoms that come with them. Today's ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast episode explores the very powerful connection between migraines and neurodivergence in women with my guest, Diane Ducarme, the contemporary master of migraine investigation.

Diane’s relentless inquisitive mind for highly complex problems is what allows her to deliver life-transforming results, which is the fuel to her energy.What sets Diane apart is her emphasis on the power of functional foods. Unlike conventional approaches focusing on eliminating foods, Diane adds new elements to the equation. Her dedication to unravelling the mysteries of migraines has inspired a podcast, "Migraine Heroes," and her company, Nectar Health, is at the forefront of this remarkable journey towards migraine relief and wellness.On this episode, Kate and Diane speak about:A digestive superfood that could help your migrainesThe vagus nerve and the connection to migrainesWhy migraines could be related to your ADHD How your digestive system can hold the keys to health The connection between your brain function and your food The profound wisdom of Chinese traditional medicineHow Hormonal shifts affect your gut and brainHaving period cycles that can actually feel goodThe effects of endometriosis on the digestive system What chinese traditional medicine can teach you about ADHDFind out more about Diane and her work on her website www.mynectarhealth.comKate's new four-part workshop series, Regulating Your ADHD Nervous System, is available here.Have a look at some of Kate's workshops and free resources here.Kate Moryoussef is a women’s ADHD Lifestyle and wellbeing coach and EFT practitioner who helps overwhelmed and unfulfilled newly diagnosed ADHD women find more calm, balance, hope, health, compassion, creativity, and clarity. Follow the podcast on Instagram hereFollow Kate on Instagram hereFind Kate's resources on ADDitude magazine hereMentioned in this episode:20% off Kate's content for Neurodivergent celebration week Use the code NDWEEK20 ND Week 20

The power of hope after an ADHD diagnosis with Gail Muller

The word 'hope' to so many of us can feel ambiguous and distant and yet in this conversation, my guest Gail Muller, a Cornish adventurer, author, speaker, and coach, breaks down the power of hope through a late in life ADHD diagnosis. This is a riveting conversation where we learn that we can always choose hope from the depths of life's challenges. Gail has spent twenty years in education: teaching, leading, and consulting globally, helping raise aspirations and encouraging life-long learning for all. She passionately advocates for the belief that our broken bits can also be superpowers. Recently diagnosed with ADHD, she also struggled for fifteen years with debilitating chronic pain. In 2019, after considerable physical rehabilitation, she walked the Appalachian Trail in the USA, later writing a bestselling book about the experience called Unlost. Gail advocates for living a life that’s courageous and true to oneself. She runs popular online courses and residential retreats in Cornwall and gives talks and workshops worldwide, encouraging people to dig into their creativity, build resilience, and grow in confidence. On this episode of the ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Kate and Gail talk about:Gail's chronic pain journeyHope and acceptance can exist togetherHow to use hope in life and how Gail teaches it to her studentsADHD and the connection between chronic pain, hypermobility, inflammationUnexplained answers, pain and neurodivergence Hope as an energyBecoming empowered with more answers to thrive with ADHDHow to stop fighting against ourselves Hopeful attitude switchGail's ADHD diagnosis validation and understanding Gail's post-diagnosis crash Generational healing and processing after a diagnosis Kate's new four-part workshop series, Regulating Your ADHD Nervous System, is available here.Have a look at some of Kate's workshops and free resources here.Kate Moryoussef is a women’s ADHD Lifestyle & Wellbeing coach and EFT practitioner helping overwhelmed and unfulfilled newly-diagnosed ADHD women find more calm, balance, hope, health, compassion, creativity and clarity. Follow the podcast on Instagram hereFollow Kate on Instagram hereFind Kate's resources on ADDitude magazine here

Gaining a Deeper Understanding of Ourselves Using Human Design

Also an Artist and a Modern Mystic, Ebonie facilitates curious, complex, creative and courageous souls in navigating the reality of being a spiritual being in a physical body.

Harnessing our ADHD Intuition and Inner Wisdom

Trusting our native intuition, learning about how our gut feelings show up, and harnessing and accessing more of it can be vital energy for those of us who are neurodivergent and often think only with our (busy!) minds.Having such overactive brains means we can often detach from our bodies and gut or intuitive feelings and become burdened with self-doubt. By trusting in our deep intuition and inner wisdom, we can give our brains and overthinking some time out and go back within and learn to trust our body's signalling.This week’s guest is Dr Robyn Mckay. An authority on spiritual intelligence, Robyn McKay is a top advisor to high EQ executives and leaders at Fortune 500 companies and elite-level performers in entrepreneurship, sports and entertainment.Robyn is known as a “whole brain” coach and has a PhD in counselling psychology, where she studied diverse concepts ranging from spiritual intelligence and personal development to positive psychology and creativity. Her distinct range of tools that span from the spiritual to the scientific serves as the baseline for her unique approach to transformational leadership and innovation.On today's ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Kate and Dr Robyn spoke about:How to be an intuitive channelADHD diagnosis later on in lifeWhy ADHD and having a deep intuition are so closely connectedUsing our ADHD as a strength Accessing your intuition and guidance Connecting inwards and tapping into the bigger part of who we areWhy neurodiverse people are good at making decisions quicklyThe intuitive skills neurodiverse people have & how to utilise themUsing our ' creative flow' to channel Sign up for Kate's new ADHD Energy and Mindset Reprogramme waitlist here.To find out more about Dr Robyn’s work, you can find her on:https://drrobynmckay.comKate Moryoussef is a women’s ADHD Lifestyle & Wellbeing coach and EFT practitioner helping overwhelmed yet unfulfilled (many with ADHD like her) women find more calm, balance, health, compassion, creativity and clarity. Have a look at some of Kate's workshops and free resources here.Follow the podcast on Instagram hereFollow Kate on Instagram hereHave a read of Kate’s articles in ADDitude magazine here

Processing and Healing After a Late-in-Life ADHD Diagnosis

Acceptance and self-compassion play a huge part in processing our late-in-life ADHD diagnosis.Piecing together the various components to which we have attributed shame and judgement and reframing that through an updated neurodivergent lens does take time, healing and patience. The 'after process' of an ADHD diagnosis can bring up lots of deep-rooted and painful emotions, which can take time to acknowledge and release.On this week’s episode of the ADHD Womens Wellbeing Podcast, we have Dr Fiona Peters, a former BBC journalist who left to pursue a PhD at the University of London between two periods of maternity leave. Dr Peters has also published an academic book and is a speaker and trainer for schools. She is touring with her talk entitled 'Perfectionism and Anxiety'. She is also a consultant for diversity, equality, and inclusion in the workplace, specialising in ADHD.Since being diagnosed with ADHD herself, Dr Peters is using her creativity, drive and ambition to create a new online community for entrepreneurs ADHDLIFE and to grow awareness of the impact of ADHD on business and personal life, both positive and negative.On this week's ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Kate and Dr Peters speak about:Why it's ok to not finish every project you start How having an understanding of ADHD frames your healing Why meditation and therapy might not be working for you Fiona's path to her Ph.D. and why she loved following a different path Trying a failing to fit in and doing it your way Self-worth, self-acceptance and Being an ADHD entrepreneurBeing a work in progressYou can connect with Dr Peters on social media via Instagram or LinkedIn. For more information on all of Kate's ADHD resources, workshops and programmes, check out her website: www.adhdwomenswellbeing.co.uk Kate Moryoussef is a women’s ADHD Lifestyle & Wellbeing coach and EFT practitioner helping overwhelmed yet unfulfilled (many with ADHD like her) women find more calm, balance, health, compassion, creativity and clarity. Have a look at some of Kate's workshops and free resources here.Follow the podcast on Instagram hereFollow Kate on Instagram hereHave a read of Kate’s articles in ADDitude magazine here

Breaking ADHD Perfectionism and Burnout Cycles

Perfectionism combined with ambition, control, over-achievement, restless energy, productivity-guilt and burnout are tendencies I see and hear about a lot in ADHD women. It can be exhausting living like this, and many of us struggle to break the cycle, which causes spates of burnout. However, when we create awareness around these behaviour patterns, which are often subconscious and unintentional, we can build better boundaries and gently remove the internal pressures we put on ourselves.Today on the ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, I speak to Michaela Thomas,  a Clinical Psychologist, coach, founder of the psychology practice The Thomas Connection and author of The Lasting Connection – develop love and compassion for yourself and your partner.Michaela specialises in perfectionism combined with stress, anxiety, depression, productivity, procrastination, burnout and overall wellbeing. On today's ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Kate and Michaela talked about the following:Burnout, ambition, overwhelm and not feeling good enough with neurodivergent womenProductivity, procrastination and shamePerfectionism is a mask we use to hideUnderstanding the wiring of our neurodivergent brain The tools and strategies to help with hyperfocus and burnoutChoosing different ways to live and what's important to us in different seasonsSelf-boundaries, self-compassion and seeing our limitations Softening a 'should' to a 'could, removing self-blame Being overwhelmed by all our ideas, pulling the reigns backCelebrating our impulsive energy and creative imaginationHarnessing our energy with regular breaks and self-compassionCycle breaking from previous generationsThe pressure we put on ourselves and using our intuition Try Get Dopa here with a 10% discount: https://bit.ly/adhdwomenswellbeing10Kate Moryoussef is a women’s ADHD Lifestyle & Wellbeing coach and EFT practitioner helping overwhelmed yet unfulfilled (many with ADHD like her) women find more calm, balance, health, compassion, creativity and clarity. Have a look at some of Kate's workshops and free resources here.Follow the podcast on Instagram hereFollow Kate on Instagram hereHave a read of Kate’s articles in ADDitude magazine here

ADHD Loud and Proud with Kara Marni

I've always been a firm believer that once we're aware of our neurodivergence, we all need to be 'Tapping into our ADHD Gold'. I even created a workshop (check it out here) specifically about this, as I believe that when we reframe our strengths and stop focussing as much on all our challenges and what we can't do, the ADHD genius is given more space to expand!And this is what we talk about in today’s episode with my guest, Kara Marni, a rising soul and R&B vocalist who has been on a steady ascension since 2019 when she headlined the Pussy Parlure stage at Glastonbury before embarking on a sold-out UK & European tour. In this period, the singer/writer has gone on to support many notable artists, from Lewis Capaldi to Rita Ora, Raye and Ray BLK to name a few, with a string of festivals and high-profile performances to her name, including Reading & Leeds and Glastonbury. Kara is a family girl who grew up in a house of music (& food) lovers and credits her Greek ancestry for a confident personality, big appetite and big hair. Seldom short of something to say, Kara is a self-professed chatterbox, injecting her creativity and high energy into her lyricism. A self-taught guitarist, Kara recently partnered with supporters Fender as a part of their impressive roster.On today's ADHD women's Wellbeing Podcast, Kate and Kara speak about:Focusing the energy of ADHD children in schoolFinding the right educational environment for ADHDKara's passion for music and perfromingThe joy of channelling your hyper-focus positively Being creative over academic in the school systemBeing mindful without meditation Leaning into self-care to prevent burnoutKnowing your energy and how to work with it Choosing to be sober with ADHDYou can find out more about Kara on Instagram, @karamarni Try Get Dopa here with 10% discount: https://bit.ly/adhdwomenswellbeing10Kate Moryoussef is a women’s ADHD Lifestyle & Wellbeing coach and EFT practitioner helping overwhelmed yet unfulfilled (many with ADHD like her) women find more calm, balance, health, compassion, creativity and clarity. Have a look at some of Kate's workshops and free resources here.Follow the podcast on Instagram hereFollow Kate on Instagram hereHave a read of Kate’s articles in ADDitude magazine here

Changing neurodivergent lives through education reform

Our guest today wants to reform education to support neurodiverse students better. She believes empowering individuals to learn about their unique intelligence will change their lives. Today's guest is Simran Deol, a student at Harvard University who graduated with a Master's Degree in Human Development & Education and has spent many years working in Developmental and Educational Psychology.Before attending Harvard, Simran was a struggling student, failing school. She barely graduated high school and was put on academic probation during undergrad. When she was 19, she was diagnosed with Specific Learning Disorder in reading, writing, math, and ADHD. After this significant life change, she understood how her brain worked and got her needed support to turn her life around.Since then, she has been working on a series of neurodiversity awareness projects, such as creating her organization, "The Abstract Genius", speaking on podcasts and conferences and writing articles.

**All information about Kate's groundbreaking ADHD Women's Wellbeing Hormone Series is available here: www.adhdwomenswellbeing.co.uk**It's not often you get to seek the wisdom of a 102-year-old, but when it's a still-consulting doctor and life coach, you know you're in for a profound conversation.I was absolutely honoured to speak with the inspiring and fascinating Dr Gladys McGarey, who is 102 years old at the time of her new book’s publication. I read her wonderful book, A Well-Lived Life, and loved every page and the spiritual wisdom she shared - I had many epiphanies after each chapter. After spotting the signs of a neurodivergent brain - she shares her dyslexia, learning and education journey - I knew I had to reach out to her team and ask her to join the podcast! This episode was recorded at 8 am Dr Gladys's time in Arizona and she was as fresh as a daisy, with all the recording tech in place.During our conversation, Dr Gladys shares her story of having been held back in her early years of education due to undiagnosed dyslexia and how through her different way of learning and being curious, she is now recognised as a pioneer of the allopathic and holistic medical movements and a founding diplomat of the American Board of Holistic Medicine. She is also the co-founder and past president of the American Holistic Medical Association, the Academy of Parapsychology and Medicine, and the founder of The International Academy of Clinical Hypnosis. She has spoken at TEDx.In today's ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Kate and Dr Gladys discuss:How love improves all aspects of lifeWhat Gladys believes to be the true life force Being a pioneer of Holistic medicineSpeaking out for what you believe inAccepting what you can't change Positive reinforcements in childhood The power of being accepted Gladys's experience of education while being undiagnosed dyslexic in a rural Indian village If you enjoy the podcast, why not join Kate's ADHD Women's Wellbeing Collective, where you can access monthly live workshops, exclusive audio content and new resources specifically for the membership?

But it can feel so challenging when we're in the dark and have no idea why we keep hitting the same obstacles. We discuss this on today's ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast with guest Andrea McDowell, who also says it sometimes involves winging it and pivoting, even when we're terrified we may fail. Andrea believes in saying yes, winging it and finding the team to help!Andrea is a former TV director from London who escaped to the Oxfordshire countryside with her family in 2013 for a better life. She ran a successful wedding video company with a team of six and produced nearly 300 weddings a year until Covid hit, and she was forced to make the heartbreaking decision to close the business. To support her mental wellbeing and give her something to focus on during this time, she poured her heart and soul into her garden, which eventually became her next venture, Dahlia Beach - a Plant Your Own Flower Garden based in Oxfordshire. During this week's ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast episode, I chat with the inspiring Andrea all about: Being a multi-passionate ADHD entrepreneur Seeing gaps in the marketOwning our failures, why we shouldn't be afraid to fail and accepting the mistakes we make Following our dreams with ADHD and harnessing our ADHD traitsBeing a maverick and staying true to our convictionsUsing hyper-focus to flourish and being brave in our choices Perimenopause, HRT and ADHDAdmin breakdowns in business and finding people to help fill the gapsCreating an ADHD-friendly business**All information about Kate's groundbreaking ADHD Women's Wellbeing Hormone Series is available here: www.adhdwomenswellbeing.co.uk**If you enjoy the podcast, why not join Kate's ADHD Women's Wellbeing Collective, where you can access monthly live workshops, exclusive audio content and new resources specifically for the membership?

My ADHD insights on prioritising time out, rest and our hormones for better mental wellbeing

Welcome back to a new series of The ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast. In this intro solo episode before the official start of the series on Thursday, I wanted to share my insights from taking some time out.With ADHD, we can find it difficult to stop, slow down, pause, rest and breathe.Very often, we only stop when an external factor stops us. Maybe that’s an injury, illness, ill family member, work crisis or even a pandemic!Our ADHD nervous system has been fine-tuned to keep running on high alert, despite feeling fraught and exhausted most of the time.But with awareness of ADHD comes power. Power to prevent. Power to see what we haven’t been able to understand before. Burnout cycles we thought were because we couldn’t keep up. Always more to do, be, produce, create and show. Never enough. Never on top of things. I must keep doing more. And then what? We break down, we collapse and we burn out and we’re no good to anyone. And then the cycle of shame happens.I took a break and for the first time, I didn’t feel guilty. I knew I deserved this break. I was worthy of relaxing and restoring. I knew that this was in the best interest of everyone around me, including my clients, family and friends. It was needed and it was wonderful. I felt rejuvenated and re-energised—no guilt or fear of judgement.In this solo episode (guest episode returning on Thursday) I talk about how to find a break if you can’t escape for a few days. I call them micro pauses that we can all do and become more intentional about every day. I am actively retraining myself to find more time to breathe, pause and recalibrate every day so I can show up for my family and my work - both of which are hugely important to me. Not only this, but also for my mental health, mood regulation, anxiety, nervous system and physical health (my back). I’m finally ready to prioritise this and invite you to do the same.I also talk about ADHD, women's health and hormones and will be talking about this more in the next few months. Watch this space for a new project that I'm working on.Kate Moryoussef is a women’s ADHD Lifestyle & Wellbeing coach and EFT practitioner helping overwhelmed yet unfulfilled ADHD women find more calm, balance, energy, health, compassion, creativity and clarity in their lives. Join Kate's ADHD Women's Wellbeing Collective here.Have a look at some of Kate's free resources here.Follow the podcast on Instagram hereFollow Kate on Instagram hereHave a read of Kate’s articles in ADDitude magazine here

Using our ADHD diagnosis as a force for social and medical reform

Undiagnosed ADHD, at best, can be a life-long nuisance and energy-sapper, but at worst, it can trigger the worst of mental health issues, including suicide ideation.Unfortunately, this week's guest, Priyanka Patel, a pharmacist based in Manchester and who was recently diagnosed with ADHD at 27, knows this all too well.She was diagnosed with depression in 2020 and, despite her efforts to try and get an ADHD assessment, was not listened to by her GP.

Since finally getting her ADHD diagnosis, Priyanka's life has transformed, and now she is on a mission to ensure no other woman has to go through what she did.During this week's episode, Kate and Priyanka talk about:Priyanka's mental health and diagnosis storyHow Priyanka's family dealt with her diagnosis Focussing on all our negatives instead of our strengthsThe stigma of mental health, ADHD and medication in Indian cultureHow to approach medication for your situationCultural views of neurodiversity How ADHD Medication works in your system Tips to help feel better while taking medicationSubtle ways our ADHD symptoms creep upAccommodations we can choose to help ourselvesPriyanka's work to improve NHS GPs' knowledge of ADHD symptoms in women Increasing awareness and screening of ADHD in GPsTo join Kate's Live ADHD EFT/Tapping Session - Releasing Indecision, Procrastination and Self-Doubt on Friday, November 18th, click hereIf you enjoy the podcast, why not join Kate's ADHD Women's Wellbeing Collective, where you get access to monthly live workshops, exclusive audio content and new resources specifically for the membership?

Making life work for you after an ADHD diagnosis

"Don't try to fit into the world; make the world fit into you."This week’s guest is Sarah Templeton, author of the hit book ‘How NOT to Murder Your ADHD Kid – Instead Learn to be Your Child’s Own ADHD Coach’ released in 2021. She realised the key to stopping ADHD adolescents from becoming homeless, unemployed, on drugs and in prison was to educate the parents.  If parents could recognise their kids getting into these sorts of issues very early on and change their child’s life path by pursuing an early diagnosis, medication and managing their ADHD properly from the start, the result would mean the prisons, homeless hostels and rehabs would NOT be packed to the rafters with ADHD. Sarah is a vocal advocate for change and believes The ADHD Act is long overdue. She is on the APPG for ADHD at the Houses of Parliament and has vowed to be the voice for the tens of thousands of young offenders and adult offenders with undiagnosed ADHD – who cannot get their voices heard within the prison system. Yet without the correct ADHD diagnosis and medication, their life is destined to be one spent persistently in and out of prison.During this episode, Kate and Sarah speak about:ADHD within the prison systemHarnessing ADHD to re-focus your lifeWhy you may not recognize your amazing skills and abilities with ADHDWomen coping with an ADHD diagnosisThe relief after getting a diagnosis The price of ignoring our ADHDCriticism and the impact that has on us historicallyLeaning into our strengths and listening to the positives Making the world work for you The pressure on un-diagnosed ADHD women to cope Using your dopamine-seeking ADHD brain for goodSarah's plans for the ADHD Act in the prison system and policeYou can connect with Sarah via her websites www.sarahtempleton.org.uk and www.headstuffadhdtherapy.co.uk. If you enjoy the podcast, why not join Kate's ADHD Women's Wellbeing Collective, where you get access to monthly live workshops, exclusive audio content and new resources specifically for the membership?

Advocating for your neurodiversity in the workplace

"Embracing and working with our strengths teaches us to thrive with ADHD."Speaking about an autism or ADHD diagnosis within the workplace can feel daunting, exposing and scary. However, when we advocate for ourselves within our work setting, we are enabling the support, care and accommodations we deserve. Working with - and no longer - against our brains means we can excel more in our careers without the burnout and exhaustion that typically comes with neurodiversity. Often the way we work can look different to others, but that doesn't mean it's less effective. The more we talk about this and allow different options to be implemented, the healthier, happier and more productive we feel within our work environment. This week’s guest, Samantha Hiew is the Director of ADHD Girls, a company founded with a social mission to empower girls and women with ADHD through effective advocacy, education and specialists’ insights.With a background in healthcare communications and a PhD in Cancer Research, Samantha is passionate about helping individuals with ADHD access employment and training organisations to provide the support they need to thrive in their circumstances, thereby increasing happiness and wellbeing and improving productivity.During this episode of The ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Kate and Samantha spoke about: Feeling alone after an ADHD diagnosis The power of anecdotal experiencesThe benefits of being around others like you and community  Sam's autism diagnosis and her surpriseADHD and Autism often going hand in handNeeding to have a passion, fulfilment to stave off depressionSam's mission with ADHD diagnosisRecognition Responsive Euphoria and what it is and looks like Navigating ADHD and Neurodiveristy in the workplaceHow employers can boost their ADHD employee's confidence Advocating for yourself in the workplaceEmbracing our strengths and interests to thrive with ADHDYou can connect with Samantha via adhdgirls.co.uk or on social media via Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter, @adhd_girlsThanks to our sponsor, Brain.

Rediscovering yourself after years of medication

"Find something you're passionate about...and you're going to do it really well."This week’s episode is with Audrey Stimpson, an internationally published master photographer by trade who has now made it her sole mission to share her story of Adderall addiction and how she freed herself after 23 years. Memphis-based Audrey, trained as a fashion photographer, working in the elite fashion and modelling industry of NYC for 8 years. She had the privilege of shooting for top brands and major publications like Vogue, Elle, Forbes, and Robb Report to name a few. In 2018, she co-founded Madison and Melrose, an A-Z digital marketing/branding company that specializes in content creation. She has a growing platform of over 23k followers, the majority based in NYC and the MidSouth. Audrey had been prescribed Adderall to treat her ADHD since the age of seven, the same year the drug first entered the market, making her one of the longest case studies. For a while, Adderall made her feel invincible. From the photoshoot straight to the after-party, Audrey was using Adderall to slay! But, after 23 years of use, the amphetamine had taken its toll, leading to psychosis, gut health issues, body dysmorphia, Addorexia, and a never-ending cycle of shame. Now trained as a functional medicine coach, she helps others on their Adderall-free journey and writing the guidebook that she wished she’d had. She is developing an ADHD nutrition coaching program, and she recently launched a blog dedicated to helping those directly affected by Adderall addiction. She is also addressing real fears in real-time on TikTok, the preferred social media for those with ADHD,  reaching upwards of 80,000 people per post. Kate and Audrey talked about: Being medication-free after 23 years of being on ADHD medsHow she came off the meds and being scared of operating without themHer training as a Functional Nutrition Coach to help with ADHDUsing EMDR therapy for addiction Overcoming her dependency on medicationGut healing and autoimmune issues alongside ADHDThe power of our diet and lifestyle to help with ADHDHer book, How-To-Thrive-Off-Adderall guidebook, Accidental ADDict.Connect with Audrey via Instagram or on her website Audreystimpson.com, where you can also sign up for her FREE video guide on how to become Adderall free using EMDR Therapy.This is not medical advice.
