DIAGNOSED ADHD, DYSCALCULIA

Rebecca is passionate about helping ADHD teenagers and adults feel better about themselves in both body and mind.

School life for Rebecca was difficult because she had undiagnosed ADHD so found it incredibly difficult to focus and concentrate in lessons whilst being an obviously bright child

Rebecca also found it very difficult to interpret what teachers were saying as the ADHD traits of ‘struggling to understand instructions and directions’ was very evident in Rebecca. She felt she always had to work so much harder to achieve the same as others – which lead to huge feelings of underachievement.

Rebecca was one of the very many people who was misdiagnosed with borderline personality disorder before finally realising in her mid 20s that in actual fact she was ADHD.

She had never felt that the BPD diagnosis fitted her, but mental health services convinced her to go to all sorts of BPD support groups that she didn’t feel she fitted in at and take medication which was of no use to her whatsoever. In fact she now believes it made her feel worse.

Rebecca spent her early 20s confused, unhappy and not knowing who she was. She suffered with emotional dysregulation, frequent overwhelm and bouts of anxiety and depression.

She often coped with her social anxiety and feelings of not fitting in by turning to unhelpful and unhealthy coping mechanisms. However, since her ADHD diagnosis she finally understands herself and is now passionate about helping other ADHD teens and adults feel better about themselves.

Before she was diagnosed ADHD Rebecca had used alcohol to self medicate. She started drinking as a teenager and in her 20s drinking became more of an issue and then a real problem.

Since being put on the right ADHD medication however she no longer feels the need to self medicate and now doesn’t need or use alcohol at all. And feels so much better for it.

Since this time Rebecca has been passionate about her own mental and physical fitness and is now keen to share what she has learnt with her ADHD clients.

Rebecca is able to train our clients one-to-one and she is also able to offer Outside in Nature personal and group training. She is qualified to work with kettle bells and to do circuit training with clients.
