Getting past the ADHD label

The label ADHD helps more than it hinders

Once we get past the fear of a label, there is a lot of benefit in knowing and accepting our ADHD, much better than a life in denial or misunderstanding.

My life would have been very different had I known about my ADHD from an early age: I might have understood how to overcome many challenges, avoided problems and heartaches,  and protected my self belief.

Welcome the label

I have coached several hundred adults, late adult-diagnosed with ADHD. Everyone has wished to have known about their label earlier – every one.

Welcome the label for the insight it brings, and books are a great way to share and discuss ADHD with your children, parents, relatives and friends.

Labels bring deeper understanding and insight, so make the label work for you – as a signpost to help and wellbeing.
