When Sally Hepworth’s daughter was diagnosed with ADHD, alarm bells went off for her. Because a lot of the things her daughter was struggling with, Sally had experienced too, her whole life.

Both Sally Hepworth and Mia Freedman have ADHD - attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder - and their diagnoses have changed their lives. In this very candid conversation, Sally shares how she manages her work as a bestselling author, the difference medication has made, and the unique high and lows that come with being neuro-diverse.


With thanks to Sally Hepworth. Buy her new book The Soulmate.
