Working with Rebecca
Design Your Life with ADHD
It’s frustrating to discover you have ADHD, but still feel your life is chaotic.
It’s frustrating to always be dealing with the same problems, and feel like you’re not making progress.
It’s frustrating to know what tools are available, but not know why they aren’t working.
So design a system that starts with what’s most important – you.
This is space and time devoted to placing you at the centre of your world. You'll be guided through structured questions, creating a map. You’ll get that tangle of problems laid out where you can see them. You’ll gain clarity on your patterns of behaviour and ways of thinking – uncovering the connections between the symptom and the motivation, helping you make better choices.
Through the Design process, you'll create a simple, reliable structure that plays to your strengths and suits your natural rhythm. So you can relax, and enjoy making the most of the moment.
We experience the World from Different Perspectives
Each one of us is unique: a special combination of experiences, interests, beliefs, fears and talents. Living life with ADHD means you’re approaching things from a different angle, and standard organisation and problem solving techniques for managing everyday sometimes aren’t as effective. Increasing your self-awareness helps you become an expert in your abilities and needs, giving you the confidence to make the right choices for you to achieve your goals. By extending natural curiosity and reflective listening skills, Rebecca helps you uncover your internal systems and patterns, making them visible and accessible.

Cambridge Support Group
2023 is coming to a close that feels fast. I am getting closer to finishing my PhD, but the challenges I've faced over the last three years to get here lead me to believe I need to make some changes. When I started this group in 2010, there was very little understanding or recognition for adults with ADHD. I was a local Cambridge ADHD professional who wanted to provide a place where adults with and without diagnosis could meet other people with similar experiences, and share the knowledge they had learned along the way.
But the world has changed a lot since then, and so has my work. There are more adults sharing their stories and experiences than ever before and while that increases our community worldwide, it means it's more critical than ever that we have a better understanding of how we work naturally. My PhD work has developed a whole new way of defining, understanding and working with the lived experience of ADHD, and I believe making that model accessible is essential for the next stage of developing diagnosis and treatment approaches. The social group, as it stands now, no longer fits that vision.
As of January 1, 2024, the ADHD Social Support Group will be closed on Facebook and there will be no regular monthly calls or in-person meet ups. Instead, I would ask that you join my Patreon so that I can continue to encourage, assist and bolster you. In the Patreon group, there are worksheets, videos, and community there with more directed, specific information to help you navigate everyday life. Plus, as I update my work, you'll be amongst the first to receive new methods and ideas. It also means I can focus my energy in one place and provide more attention and the support you need there.
Thank you to all the members of the Social Club for your stories, your time, and your friendship. It has been an honour to journey with you and hear your experiences. I trust that you are as excited about the future that is created based on my work as I am. While the era of the support group in this form comes to an end, I am excited about what will take its place and look forward to the future with you.
