In the news and interviews

"The dark side to remote and hybrid working can really affect those of us with ADHD"

... But the concept of ‘body doubling’ is nothing new: People are more likely to stay focused on work if they know others are keeping an eye on them. I spoke with Susana Lei'ataua on RNZ's Sunday Mornings, about the principle and its link to ADHD treatment.  

"I’ve literally got reminders in my house. In my office here, by the coffee machine. [Managing ADHD] is about accepting that this is a mercurial condition. It’s going to be up, it’s going to be down. And so I go as far as asking myself questions on these reminder notes: “Annie, where are you at in the [adhd] cycle?” It’s about disrupting the adhd symptoms - and visual disrupters are a really powerful tool for those of us with ADHD."

It was awesome to speak with ADHD podcaster Katy Weber about underachievement, ADHD as a woman GenXer, strategies like self-enquiry and ways to 'disrupt' paralysis and rumination, and the value of the Māori definition of ADHD "Aroreretini".

“[bodydoubling].. can be really anchoring for an ADHD person, particularly if they’re hyperactive. So that’s physically anchoring, but also anchoring in terms of attention.”

I spoke with NZ Herald about the struggle with task initiation for those of us with ADHD... sharing how it can be described as a wall of resistance, which sometimes feels like a “physical paralysis”.

Hear me get ADHD enthusiastic with fellow neurodivergent and podcaster, George Nursey. We geek out on the advantages of a late diagnosis, the effects of medication on disrupting negative self-appraisal, and the importance of neuro-diversity in schools, workplaces, and society as a whole. Just like bio-diversity!

Coast Access Radio's Nikki and I sat down to chat about the exciting evolution that needs to happen in workplaces so they can retain more brilliant, interesting talent, and have a competitive advantage.

Here I was, almost 50. That moment of relief. Finally, many of my own challenges made sense.

I’ve been coaching ambitious business owners, leaders and professionals since 2015, but there was always a missing link for me in my own work. 

Then, at the age of 49, I received my diagnosis of ADHD. And everything changed.
