Move Your Mood

Intro Night

Hello & Welcome

You may have landed on this page because you are are health practitioner with ADHD clients, wondering about how best to help and support them. 

You might be a little like us. Observing clients and patients who are smart, charming and likable but equally baffling, even frustrating. The ones who totally “get it” when you talk but then don’t ever seem to “get it done”?. Have you ever sat there wondering how you can have had so many conversations and spent so much time with someone to see such little progress, change or action?


You might be working with an ADHD’er. 


You can see clearly it's not their mental capacity or intention getting in the way. But you keep hearing “I don’t know” or “I didn’t”...when they return to you, emotional, distressed and beating up on themselves.


You might be working with an ADHD’er.


We too know this bewildering heart break. 

We had the same questions and through much trial and error and research have developed a program to help ADHD'ers:

- Develop more self compassion by understanding their nervous systems

- Generate more effectiveness by learning how to regulate their nervous system to calm anxiety

- Create a structured method for integrating these tools so that their moods don't get in the way of their momentum

“We” are Matt Miller, Psychologist and ADHD’er and Mira Rao - Resilience & Embodiment Coach and Yoga Teacher.  Matt himself can attest to the significant shift in his life when he began to incorporate body-based regulation skills and practical organisational tools to get things done in a way that made sense to and were supportive of his brain. When Matt and Mira saw the results in Matt’s life, they then started looking around at  some research which confirmed the approach they had, so they decided to start providing similar support for other ADHD’ers.  From this they developed the Move Your Mood program - a 6-week supported and small group program for ADHD’ers who want to go from a living life feeling overwhelmed, anxious and pressured, toward feeling more productive and present in their lives.


It is this personal and professional passion that has led us to offer this intro evening - since we now feel we have some tools that can help. We also know the frustration of being busy trying to help all your clients or patients and not knowing how to learn more, who to turn to for support, the exchange of ideas or the best places to send your clients and patients for the right kind of help that can actually make a real tangible difference in their lives.


We’d love to invite you to an introductory net-caring evening. An evening where you can meet and exchange ideas with other caring professionals, try a bit sized taste of some of these tools and techniques and hear a short shameless plug about our primary group program: “Move Your Mood".


It’s free, there will be food and hopefully a bit of fun as we support you in getting to know each other, and tell a story or two. 


Wednesday April 24th at 6:30 - 8:30pm at Partners in Psychology: 2/138 Main Street, Osborne Park.

Some more nerdy stuff for those interested:


Many of you reading will likely have observed an increase in the numbers of ADHD diagnoses in recent years. 


You’ll also likely know that is the name given to a range of experiences that many people find very challenging - including an inability to organise themselves, to relax or to complete projects and tasks along with emotional highs and lows…and feeling misunderstood and unable to “get it right” no matter how hard they try. 


This last sentence in italics is the one that represents the heartache many of my clients have expressed to me (Mira) directly about living with these experiences on a daily basis.  


On a recent training call with Neuropsychologist and ADHD specialist Michelle Livock ( she made the claim that ADHD is not actually well-named for it is indeed not a problem with attention, emotional energy or impulse, but with the regulation of these things. 


In our recent research and reflections I have come to believe that the following 5 things are among the most helpful:


  • Compassion & understanding from self and others 


  • Awareness of one's inner experience (sensations, moods, emotions) and skills to regulate them - known as interoception


  • A methodical approach for maintaining a practice of self-regulation


  • Structured, practical systems for organising tasks and projects in a way that is simple, visual, and fun.


  • Accompaniment in doing the things needed to regulate and maintain one’s mood and life (this will not happen alone).


Renowned ADHD expert Russell Barkley also attests to this in saying that treatment for ADHD’ers needs to include helping them with active interventions “at the point of performance” of key areas in their life. Endless talking about things isn’t going to help them.


This is why we are so passionate about the support provided through a blend of practical application of nervous system theory to create improved interoception and self-regulation along with simple do-able self and task management tools and systems. It helps ADHD’ers understand and love themselves a bit more and actually get stuff done.


We’d love to see you there!
