Frequently Asked Questions
ADHD Unlocked is an online support and accountability members-only community specifically designed for adults grappling with ADHD.
We focus on issues that challenge adults with ADHD and have brought together a community of like-minded people who understand what you are going through and are looking to live their best life with ADHD, in integrity with who they really are. Joining our membership community will help you better understand and accept your ADHD and give you the confidence, motivation and tools to tackle your ADHD challenges and get out of your own way. Why? Because we totally “get it”.
It’s basically a brilliant mash-up of coaching, practical guidance, self-help webinars and group support to keep you on track and feeling positive. A community where you can just be yourself without guilt or shame.
You don’t need a Facebook account. Although we have a private members group on Facebook, the magic happens in our online meetings and away from social media.
03. I’m already struggling! Isn’t this just one more life pressure to worry about and which I’ll have to catch up on?
Absolutely NOT. ADHD Unlocked is not a course or a programme. We touch on different themes each week, but they are all stand alone and there is no “work” to do. We take the same approach to our members as a coach does to their coachees: it is you that is the expert in your own life. You set your agenda. All our sessions are recorded for this purpose. This is your community and you can access it at your own pace and in your own way.
Attendance is entirely voluntary and whether you skip a day, a week or even a month, you’ll never feel like you’re on the back foot. Join the community whenever and drop in when you feel like it. We are here for YOU.
Not at all. Any live discussions we run are there for when a topic is particularly relevant to you and your ADHD, or you simply need a boost from the community and want to connect to others with similar traits. There’s no “catching up” required although ALL previous sessions will be available to watch later if you fancy it, as many times as you like, and the entire library of our broadcasts will be organised by the topics that affect ADHDers.
Although we’re live every weekday to try to keep you connected and on track, we don’t expect members to drop in every weekday and at the times specified. We appreciate that for many members, the frequency and time of sessions will just not be feasible. That said, some of our members really benefit from the daily engagement and the 15 minutes they spend in the community is key to them getting in the right head space to get in front of the day and their ADHD.
Nope. Some of our members are not really interested in being labelled but are keen to tackle traits they recognise in themselves which, whilst sometimes associated with ADHD, are by no means exclusive to it. Indeed, nearly all of the juicy good stuff we’ll show you helps anyone experiencing impulsivity, inattention, challenges around time, relationships and overwhelm and even (gasp!) the neurotypical amongst us.
There are other members of ours that want a formal diagnosis of ADHD but are still on the waiting list. We understand the challenges of getting a diagnosis of ADHD in this country. The wait-list can be years and many ADHDers are left to deal with their ADHD with absolutely no information or support. The consequences of this can be fatal.
At ADHD Unlocked we believe in:
“No ADHDer left behind…” At least not on our watch ?
06. Is Membership a replacement for therapy, Qualified medical advice from a GP, or support from a legal professional?
The information delivered by your guides and mentors in the ADHD Unlocked Membership Community (“ADHD Unlocked”) as well as information on this website https://www.adhdunlocked.co.uk are meant to help you better understand your ADHD and identify the areas in your life and in your thinking that may be standing in your way.
However, the services provided by ADHD Unlocked do not constitute professional mental health care or medical care. It is no substitute for the advice, diagnosis and treatment by your psychiatrist, qualified therapist or other professional healthcare provider.
If you feel mentally unwell to the point that you are unable to function and/or feel that you are at risk, please seek help from your local A&E department, your psychiatrist and/or qualified therapist.
Yes…we offer monthly and annual subscriptions. Our annual membership is discounted and ideal if you’re ready to “throw your backpack over wall”. The monthly option is there if you prefer the monthly payment structure and aren’t sure how the membership will fit in with everything else you have going on. However you join, remember, this membership is designed from the ground up to help support you in all aspects of your life.
This is just the start for ADHD Unlocked. In the not too distant future, we’ll be launching a members only dashboard and partnering with specialist app providers to help you get the most out of your membership. This is just the start. It’s very exciting!
There is whispers that in a community catchup it was recently suggested the meeting should end with a virtual group dance with one of our founders reliving her musical theatre days by sharing a rendition with the group. We would like to reassure you that this is just a rumour and any decisions to dance (or sing) will be purely at the choice, discretion and risk to the dignity of individual members.
Definitely not. You can tune in without comment or engagement and due to the style of delivery you don’t need to show your face or even let people know you are there. Again, there’s no pressure!
Our Wednesday evening meetings are designed as more of a collaborative chat, but even then, if you’re feeling shy or simply having a bad hair day you can turn off your video/audio, and simply spectate. Don’t worry about offending anyone, we “get it”.
The smash it procrastination buster sessions will likely help you get those tedious tasks done that have been hanging over your head – whether doing your taxes, tidying your knicker drawer or working on your “guns” (perhaps audio only – unless you like to overshare). You can be on or off camera. Again there is no pressure – just shout when you’re done.
