Understanding Adult ADHD and Executive Function Disorder
April 21 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm£10
,This session will provide an understanding of Adult ADHD and Executive Function Disorder and why wanting to do something doesn’t always translate into action.
You may not associate ADHD with adult behaviour but it can be that the symptoms are often not recognised or overlooked.
Rebecca Wells is a nutritionist with a special interest in ADHD and Executive Function. She will provide an understanding of ADHD; how it can affect adults and how to improve skills that are controlled by a specific area of the brain, to get things done.
The session will focus on the neurotransmitters involved, the gut/brain connection and on what to eat and supplements to improve our executive functions.
I graduated from Westminster University in 2007 and started working in clinical practice seeing a wide range of clients with various conditions, all looking for help in improving their symptoms naturally, using diet and supplements.
Seeing first-hand the effects of undiagnosed and untreated ADHD in my own family I started down the long and often confusing path of understanding what ADHD is and just how far-reaching the effects are for the individual and their families. I underwent further training in this area at Kings College, London. I learned to understand the daily struggles behind the neuro-typical brain and used my skills as a nutritionist to modulate neurotransmitter and brain function through diet and supplements. The results were amazing and seeing how simple dietary changes and targeted supplements improved focus and helped regulate emotions gave me the passion and drive to help others going through the same struggles. Research shows that sub-clinical nutritional deficiencies or imbalances can affect brain function. Correcting these deficiencies and in some cases using therapeutic doses can have a profound effect on ADHD symptoms
Nutrition is just one part of the bigger picture when working with children and adults with ADHD. I work alongside Drs, psychologists and (parenting) coaches to ensure you and your child receive the best care.

About THE NEW HEALTHY
The New Healthy is a membership community led by nutritionist May Simpkin.
“As a nutritionist, I know that making positive health changes is much easier to achieve with expert guidance, not only to motivate and inspire change but most importantly, to teach people exactly why? I also know it is not just a question of “what to eat” and this is why I have launched my membership community, The New Healthy.”
The New Healthy is based around the 5 pillars of health that I believe contribute to overall wellness; NOURISH, MOVE, LEARN, RESTORE, CONNECT.
It is important that we nourish our body, factor in exercise and movement, delve deeper into how our bodies work, focus on managing stress and also open up our world and connect with others in different fields. This is exactly what The New Healthy aims to achieve, through:
- Weekly “lunch & learn” drop-in sessions
- Cooking demos
- Regular challenges e.g. 5 days to Better Sleep or 10-day Intermittent Fasting Weight Loss
- Weekly meal inspiration emails
- Exercise classes; yoga, pilates, circuits etc
- Expert-led masterclasses ranging from meditation sessions to colour & style workshops
This varied programme of events is delivered online by zoom or directly to the inbox; there is no social media. All sessions are recorded and uploaded to the member’s platform for those who cannot make the live sessions.
I personally lead every event, either delivering the sessions or alongside experts I have invited. Each session is an opportunity to ask questions and learn more. It is also an opportunity to become part of a friendly community that has a positive focus; inspiring and motivating you to eat well and stay healthy. Effectively, members have access to a personal online nutritionist!”
The monthly subscription for individual membership to The New Healthy is £19.99 per person and this includes access to all events.
