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.

Let’s change this by helping you to develop a healthy dose of self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-compassion, as well as 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.

Workshop Feedback

"Evidence-based, practical, real-world and useful. Lou just so relatable, genuine, and communicates brilliantly. She naturally knows what is truly valuable for us to learn, understand and walk away with. Definitely worth your time. I attended the last Sydney one. It was filled with ADHDers, which of course isn’t surprising, but what was interesting to observe and experience was just how totally focused and engaged everyone was!" - Jennifer Coyne-O'Brien, Sydney.

"Lou Brown is a gift to the ADHD community. Her knowledge in this space is amazing for both parents of ADHD children and adults with ADHD. Her clinical background and personal experience with both givers her the ability to offer experiential knowledge which is expressed with empathy and warmth." - Sarah Foster, Sydney

"Thank you Lou. As a non-ADHD person who's loved one has ADHD, the workshop was very insightful and has made me appreciate ADHD and understand better how it presents and affects our day to day life as a couple. I would thoroughly recommend your workshop for those that have a loved one with ADHD. It has given us a better understanding of each other and has already made a difference in the way we interact with each other. The workshop has equipped us with the knowledge to better manage situations in our day to day life. My husband also feels validated as a person as those close to him now understand and accept how ADHD works in his life and the situations he’s faced with and therefore this has been really positive for him." - JC, Sydney
