Episode 22 - Neurodivergent? Break Free from Catastrophic Thinking with This Game-Changing Advice

Catastrophic thinking: it’s definitely more fun to say than to experience. But let me ask you: Do you ever find yourself catastrophizing, overwhelmed by anxious thoughts and emotions that seem to spiral out of control? And perhaps you’ve been told to simply stop worrying or “think positive”. But that advice only leaves you feeling invalidated and stuck in a cycle of pain and frustration.

If you want to develop resilience and effectively manage your anxious thoughts and emotions, I will be sharing some strategies to help you achieve that desired outcome of finding inner strength and effectively navigating your neurodivergent journey.


Remember, there are countless shades of goodness and badness in life. Don’t get caught up in the either-or thinking. Embrace the complexity and make choices that align with your values.
