Perfectionism & ADHD: overriding our brains to reach our potential

Perfectionism & ADHD: overriding our brains to reach our potential

By Kate Moryoussef

"Choosing between the potential of failing and maybe succeeding...or failing ahead of time by not doing it at all."

In this week’s episode, Kate talks all about how perfectionism shows up alongside ADHD with her guest, Kristen Carder, an ADHD expert and host of the I Have ADHD podcast.

During the episode, Kate and Kristen talked about:

What perfectionism actually isHow it shows up for people with ADHDSeparating your worthiness from your performance How shame from childhood can create perfectionism as an adult Trauma response and perfectionismBreaking perfectionism down to understand in order to override itFear disguised as perfectionism and how you’re ultimately protecting yourselfAwareness and using self-compassionate talk Deciphering RSD (rejection sensitivity dysphoria) and perfectionismFocusing on what lights you up and lowering the bar and inner expectation so we can move forwardsHow rest can be the most productive thing we can do - managing our energy.

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 in their lives. 

Kate has a brand new workshop planned for 12th May at 2 pm UK on: 'Managing Your Nervous System with ADHD' - tickets are limited! Click here to read the details and to book your ticket.
