Neurodivergence Coaching & Therapy
For ADHD, Autism, Highly Sensitive People & anyone identifying as neurodivergence
Release the struggle and embrace your Self
As a woman who is different from the norm you have likely tried desperately to live a ‘normal’ life only to be left burnt out, shut down, scattered and unable to cope. Perhaps it’s because you have ADHD or ASD, or are highly sensitive or empathic, or maybe you don’t know what is different, you just don’t seem to “fit.” It’s so frustrating looking at others who seem to cope ‘just fine,’ and it’s easy to start thinking that you are defective. Let me just tell you right now that there is NOTHING wrong with you! It is simply that your brain is wired for an environment that is not common in our western society.
Perhaps you understand that your brain and body are wired ‘differently,’ but you still can’t find your life rhythm and balance, and you are left feeling alone, misunderstood and discombobulated with no effective solutions.
I’ll say it again, you are absolutely perfect…. And yet your painful experience is also 100% valid and real and requires addressing. How can both of these statements be true? Well as you know your whole experience of ADHD/ASD/high sensitivity is paradoxical and this is no different. Your brain and nervous system are beautiful, but becuase of the emotional and nervous tension you are exposed to and holding within your body, you are not able to function at your best.
My job, as your coach and therapist, is to help you release and integrate the nervous tension and thus find your body’s unique balance which allows you to navigate yourself to your true potential.
You can feel good as yourself
Our society is only beginning to acknowledge neurodiversity and our general understanding of the role of sensitivity often lacks intervention and support which is targeted specifically towards the nervous system, body and mind.
Differences in brain and nervous system function are often viewed as disorders, and oftentimes the unique difference of women versus men is not recognised, much less addressed within the support offered.
The thing is, there is nothing wrong with you (I’m just going to keep saying that until you realise the truth of it), you are just a fish who is trying to climb a tree instead of swimming gracefully in the ocean’s waters! And when you try to climb the tree (instead of swimming to your destination) you end up overwhelmed, full of anxiety, exhausted and just plain frustrated with your own lack of ability.
You are not MEANT to function and live the way neurotypical people live. You, dear sensitive being, have gifts which will only show when given the right environment.
Here it is again… YOU ARE NOT BROKEN OR LESS THAN OTHERS and when you have the right support and direction you will shine like no other!
When you embrace yourself as nature intended, you can cultivate and tone your sensitivities so they become a gift, instead of holding you back and causing daily frustration and discomfort.
Embracing yourself as a sensitive being means you can release the energy you spend on fighting to be like everyone else. You can then redirect this energy into your alignment with your true nature, meaning you will be able to experience a level of contentment and joy for life you didn’t know was possible.
What to expect…
While every session is slightly different you can expect a combination of Kundalini Yoga, Breathwork, Creative Exploration and Therapeutic Discussion. You will also be given a suggested daily practice to further integrate changes, tone your nervous system and work towards specific goals you have set.
Feeling nervous about any meditation I might encourage you to do? Firstly, you don’t HAVE to do anything! There are always alternatives to suit you! I am really aware (becuase I was like this) that as a neurodivergent woman you may have tried meditation in the past and felt like you failed miserably. This is the perfect example of a fish trying to climb a tree (as mentioned above)! The meditation and breathwork techniques taught within Aromanosis HARNESS YOUR MONKEY MIND, making the meditative state easily accessible.
Kundalini Yoga works in a similar fashion, where the practitioner is moving and breathing, having lots to focus on and challenge the body and mind, so the benefits can be felt without fatigue and boredom setting in.
The Creative Therapy utilised within Aromanosis can consist of drama, sound, movement and/or artistic exploration. You don’t need any prior experience as we are using creativity as bridge to integrate and deepen our understanding of ourselves. The better we know our true self, the clearer our future direction becomes.
And lastly, we will also discuss and implement practical lifestyle changes which may (or may not) include diet, habits, supplements and movement so you can feel the benefit of the work you are doing within every aspect of your life.

Hi I’m Michelle Marsh and I am a coach, therapist, Kundalini Yoga teacher and lover of life.
As an ADHD experiencer and highly sensitive person who is also a sensation seeker, I understand what it’s like to have your sensitivity running your life instead of aiding it. But I also know from experience that there is light at the end of the tunnel if you are willing to do the work. For myself, I was never afraid of doing the work… I just couldn’t work out WHAT to do! After years of searching, a few burn outs/breakdowns and intense study I became clear on what works and what doesn’t.
But I am not just sharing with you from an experience point of view. I am also teaching from a professional stance as someone who has studied and integrated teachings from biological, psychological and esoteric traditions. These include Creative Therapies, Kundalini Yoga (KRI), Registered Nursing, Clinical Hypnotherapy, Plant Medicine and Natural Living.
I combine my naturally enthusiastic belief in EVERY BODY with my natural empathic talents to provide you with just the right amount of space and direction so you can go deep and resurface anew.
During the time that I am your coach, I will not leave you hanging between sessions as I am available via email to answer questions and provide support as needed.
If you are unsure whether working with me is right for your unique circumstances, please reach out and I will help you to find clarity. I don’t do sales calls so our chat will be very casual and I will refer you in the right direction if I see that Aromanosis is not right for you at this time.
