Skye Rapson: What is ADHD coaching?

November 29, 2021

Episode 62 with Skye Rapson

"Families are often like, 'Oh, that’s normal. That’s just a family trait.' But maybe that family trait is actually ADHD."

Skye lives is Auckland, NZ, where she is an ADHD coach and the founder of Unconventional Organisation, a growing network of coaches who provide individual and group coaching for adults with ADHD or executive function challenges.

Skye is also an academic with over seven years of experience working in adult education. She has studied in various fields, including Psychology, Sociology, and Public Health, and is now a Doctoral Candidate in Population Health. 

Skye was diagnosed with ADHD at the start of her doctorate. Since then, she has dedicated time to researching and disseminating ADHD studies, focusing on supporting others with strengths-based, neurodiverse-friendly tools and systems. 

We talk about navigating academia and graduate work and some of those executive functioning challenges around research and learning, and Skye gets to the heart of what exactly ADHD coaching entails, as well as how to know if a) you need ADHD coaching; and b) how to know if it’s working.

November 22, 2021

Sam Absher is a personal finance professional with a twist — she has borderline personality disorder & ADHD, and also has degrees in finance and risk management.

She offers a ton of practical financial advice in a language we can understand. If you’ve ever struggled with budgeting and money management, you’ll definitely want to listen to this episode!

Janet Murray: ADHD & our insatiable appetite for planners

Janet Murray: ADHD & our insatiable appetite for planners

November 15, 2021

Episode 60 with Janet Murray

"I've always struggled to switch off. I find weekends and holidays really hard."

Janet is one of the UK’s leading content marketing experts. She’s also a public speaker and host of the Courageous Content podcast and creator of the Courageous Content desk planner and she runs an annual content planning event as well as an ongoing accountability group for business owners who struggle with planning their online content.

Janet & I talk about entrepreneurship and other careers that seem to fit the ADHD brain — Janet is not only a former teacher, she’s also a former journalist. Also, she is (in her own words) ‘one of the most disorganized people on the planet’. which makes her one of the unlikeliest people in the world to launch a desk planner, but she did and it’s amazing.

Dr. Sasha Hamdani: Educating the masses & the benefits of TSM

November 8, 2021

Episode 59 with Dr. Sasha Hamdani

"I feel like half of what I do is clean up messes from other physicians who have misdiagnosed their patients."

Dr. Hamdani is a Board Certified psychiatrist and ADHD specialist. In addition to her private practice, she had a robust social media following across multiple platforms where she provides accessible and accurate information about ADHD. 

We talk about her diagnosis as a child and how her parents kept it a secret from her until she had a meltdown in medical school. We discuss some of the red flags when it comes to ADHD information on social media, as well as the downsides of calling ADHD your “superpower.” 

And Dr. Hamdani explains trans-magnetic stimulation and its benefits for people with ADHD and treatment-resistant depression.

Amy Brown: Sports, jokes & slow processing speed

Amy Brown: Sports, jokes & slow processing speed

October 18, 2021

Episode 56 with Amy Brown

"I have trouble remembering what I’ve read. I have to read the same paragraph over and over. It drives me nuts."

Amy is a Director of Outbound Transportation for Dollar Tree, where she’s responsible for shipping the company’s merchandise from their distribution centers to the company’s stores. 

Amy & I talk about her experience with sports growing up — she was a Division 1 basketball player in college — and looking back she feels like athletics and an active lifestyle were so helpful in managing ADHD earlier in her life. 

We also talk about slow processing speed, something quite common for those of us with ADHD, and the various ways in which we both experience it — including the agony of rarely getting other people’s jokes!

Sydni Rubio: Insatiable curiosity & dismissive doctors

Sydni Rubio: Insatiable curiosity & dismissive doctors

October 11, 2021

Episode 55 with Sydni Rubio.

"My hyperactivity manifests as really aggressive driving, as well as impatience and impulsivity."

Sydni is the creator and founder of What in the ADHD? She started the brand in January 2021 with the simple hope of sharing accessible ADHD information with others and the science behind *why* we have certain traits and behaviors. With a strong background in teaching and science, she breaks down a lot of obtuse concepts in relatable, humorous and easy to digest YouTube videos.

What in the ADHD? is now an established LLC that’s dedicated to normalizing ADHD and sharing information about it in a fun, inclusive, and accessible way via blogs, videos, tweets, and community surveys. 

We talk about our scientific brains and our insatiable curiosity and desire to solve puzzles. We also talk about some red flags when seeking an ADHD diagnosis and how so many of us have encountered dismissive doctors and felt minimized when seeking a diagnosis. And we also talk about community and advocacy and how feeling seen and knowing you’re not alone is such a HUGE part of the diagnosis journey in adulthood.
