Aims of this course

- To support adults with ADHD to understand how to implement mindfulness in their daily lives through an experiential and supportive group environment.

- To provide participants with accessible and sustainable mindfulness practices and tools to use in between sessions and when the course is complete.

- To help with understanding the 'how' of mindfulness and compassion practices. Learn how it specifically helps neurodivergent adults - why it can be tricky, and how we can make it accessible and practical for neurodivergent people. We will also look at the strong evidence base for this.

- To explore self compassion, and how to begin to implement this to support moments of difficulty with self criticism, and difficulty with executive functioning.

- Questions and answers with Rachel to help you leave with more capability to apply mindfulness to your day to life-from the pleasant moments-to the ones that overwhelm.
