Hi, I'm Xena.
Queen of ADHD & crazy cat lady.
Growing up I always felt like I was the odd one out… like there was something wrong with me, that I was different.
8 years ago that all changed when I got coached for the first time and I begun to build my self-worth, create self-confidence and start to enjoy my life.
I Certified as a Life Coach, built a tool box full of amazing tools and I started helping others to change their lives.
But still something wasn’t quite right…
I new what to do.
And yet, sometimes I still couldn’t bring myself to do it.
Or even when I did the things that were supposed to help (like changing the way I thought about things) it still didn’t get me over the line.
Life felt like a constant struggle.
Again I found myself struggling with procrastination, feeling like I should be further along, looking at my peers and going down the compare and despair rabbit hole…
Overthinking had become my MO, I couldn’t decide what to do or where to start, it was overwhelming and I started to feel like an imposter all over again.
THAT was when I got diagnosed with ADHD and everything finally made sense.
Like why I had avoided dating for 10 years… because rejection sensitivity dysphoria and the fear of potential rejection is *huge* for ADHDers.
Or why I often felt up and down, unable to control my emotions, was labelled as “moody” and told I was overreacting to things… because emotional dysregulation is a big part of having ADHD.
I realised I am different.
My brain works differently.
Therefore the neurotypical ways I’d been approaching things, weren’t always going to work.
I had to throw out the neurotypical rule book and create my own neurodiverse ways.
That's why I started the Navigating Adult ADHD Podcast - to help other women put all the pieces together and end their struggles.
Through my research and extensive education on dopamine and the nervous system, along with my 8+ years of Mindset Coaching.
I’ve learned how to manage my brain so I can actually...
✔️ Do the things I want to do
✔️ Quit shaming myself for not being like everyone else or doing things the way other people do
✔️ Reduce the overwhelm and overthinking
✔️ Experience more joy without needing to binge watch a whole season of Netflix
✔️ Regulate my emotions and experience way less frustration
Now I'm able to thrive with my ADHD.
And this is exactly what I help my clients do.
Whether you’re diagnosed with ADHD or not. If you resonate with the things I share then you will benefit from coaching with me.
