The wisdom in ADHD: A survival response to trauma and inauthenticity

Trauma is insidious, indirect and wields an unseen influence, shaping our lives. Yet, with curiosity and courage, we can navigate its impact. Living with Trauma might feel akin to navigating ADHD, with shared symptoms weaving common threads.  

Join Helen as she sheds light on the world of trauma and how it is tied to our perceptions of threat and safety. Discover how trauma resides in our bodies, expressing itself through symptoms of dysregulation and disconnection, and explore ways to release its grip. Triggers, often seen as paths to trauma, can also guide us toward healing on our parenting journey.

As we delve into the wisdom of ADHD physiology and dysregulation, we will uncover that regulation equals connection, not just calm and that it's a feedback mechanism of what is truly and deeply important and meaningful to you.

"Together, we will uncover the magic of play in play therapy that aids children and parents in integrating their trauma experiences and fostering connection."
