Playing around with different Spoken Word and new song ideas. Wrote this little section by putting together little notes I had saved on my phone • Before I found my human (🖤) I spent a lot of time hooking up with people who were bad for me to fill a bit of a void within myself. Turns out I could have done that without latching onto someone or something else. Go figure • This one is for anyone who finally cuts themselves free from a deadbeat partner and starts to enjoy single life.... in whatever way you damn well like 🙌🏼 • Plenty of music coming soon - Only two weeks before @woodzygram drops his new project and guess who features on one of the tracks 🙋🏼‍♂️ honestly the track absolutely bangs and from what I’ve heard the rest of the project is an absolute triumph. More details coming soon • . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . emypmate #emyp #spokenwordartist #musician #publicspeaker #adhdawareness #adhdwriter #adhdsupport #newmusic #originalmusic #unsignedartists #sundaysessions #acousticmusic #busking #acousticversion #breakups #singlelife #MovingOn #feminism #Wellness #breakuptips #selflove #liveperformance #hiphop #popmusic #wordsmatter #humanrights #mentalhealthmatters #metamorphosis

October is starting to look very good. Wednesday is the official launch of the new Nutritious Minds Consulting Clinic in Harley Street. I’ll be talking alongside some incredible guest speakers and leading Professors and Drs who will be speaking about ADHD, Development, Medicine, Addiction and more • There is a huge focus on Mental Health and Neurological conditions in October and anything that encourages positive and open conversations on those topics is a real joy to be a part of • More details on other events as and when. Cheers, have a great Monday people! • . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #emyp #spokenwordartist #musician #publicspeaker #adhdawareness #adhdwriter #adhdsupport #medicine #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #worldmentalhealthday #feminism #wordsmatter #humanrights #neurodivergent #neurodiversity #neuroscience #mentalhealthmatters #Wellness #therapy #connection #meditation

No really, STOP • You may be asking someone with fertility problems, a mother who has just lost a child, a woman who wants to focus on herself rather than bringing new life into the world. You may be asking a woman who is suffering at the hands of her mental health, someone with PCOS, a couple who have decided not to have a baby for very personal reasons. You may be asking a woman who desperately wants a child but can’t or A WOMAN WHO JUST DOESN’T WANT A CHILD • You may be asking.... but you shouldn’t. Because it’s none of your fucking business • Oh and also, stop asking women who have sex with other women how they do it. Again, none of your damn business. Simple really (and if you can’t work it out I fear for how basic your sex life is) • . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #emyp #spokenwordartist #musician #publicspeaker #womensrights #pregnancy #feminisim #adhdawareness #medicine #noneofyourbusiness #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #worldmentalhealthday #wordsmatter #pcos #polycysticovariansyndrome #pcosawareness #mothers #pregnancy #fertility #Wellness #therapy #connection #meditation

October is ADHD awareness month and as someone who spent many years, growing up, battling with my own brain.... I strive, everyday to do exactly what this picture says • “Be who you needed when you were younger” 🖤 ADHD is real. An estimated 4 million women and girls go without help and support after being misdiagnosed with another condition • If there is anyone living with ADHD reading this post.... I salute you. It is NOT easy BUT it can be a real gift • There was a time when I wholeheartedly believed I would never live a life of stability. Having my own family, a group of close friends and doing a job I loved seemed completely out of the question. It’s been a long painful journey but I am so grateful it brought me here, and I am slowly learning to fall in love with my ADHD brain. Some days are more challenging than others and I still need to work hard to manage my emotions and have to put things in place to help me remember very simple tasks, but my extreme hyper focus for writing and music has given me a platform to be able to share my experiences and meet other people who have shared similar journeys • Tap into your hyper focus. What makes your heart sing? What silences the never ending buzz? What is your purpose? It’s inside you. So find out what it is and do it.... EVERY fucking day • . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #emyp #spokenwordartist #musician #publicspeaker #adhdawarenessmonth #adhdawareness #adhdwriter #adhdsupport #medicine #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #worldmentalhealthday #feminism #wordsmatter #humanrights #neurodivergent #neurodiversity #neuroscience #mentalhealthmatters #Wellness #therapy #connection #meditation #misconceptions #endthestigma

BAD DAYS // • Its kind of inevitable that some days are going to not feel as good as other days • My least favourite day of the week is a Wednesday, so when I woke up this morning, I had very little motivation. Isn’t it mad that we have days we favour more than others. Wether it’s because of longer working hours, earlier wake ups, deadlines or because it’s a long wait until the weekend, starting the day with negativity, simply isn’t helpful • My worst day? Wednesday. Hands down. In fact I hate Wednesdays, so when I woke up this morning I was seriously lacking motivation. This Wednesday turned out to be a good one. I ate well, drank plenty of water, finished a few jobs that I’ve been putting off for a while, laughed with friends and tonight spoke at an amazing event in a beautiful venue and made some very useful connections • Turns out this Wednesday wasn’t all that bad and on reflection, I’m not sure I do hate Wednesdays. Positive things can happen when you least expect them. Amazing things can happen ANY day of the week. ❤️🙌🏼 • #emypmate #emyp #spokenwordartist #musician #publicspeaker #adhdawarenessmonth #adhdawareness #adhdwriter #adhdsupport #medicine #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #worldmentalhealthday #feminism #wordsmatter #humanrights #neurodivergent #neurodiversity #neuroscience #mentalhealthmatters #Wellness #therapy #connection #meditation #misconceptions #endthestigma #positivethinking #lawofattraction #motivational

EXCITING NEWS! // I am delighted to announce that I am now an ambassador of the Nutritious Minds Trust! I am thrilled to be a part of a Trust that supports children and adults with ADHD, Autism and Dyslexia with a huge focus on Phycology, Nutrition, Neuroscience and Education • Watch this space for more events and projects. I have already learnt so much in the short time I’ve known the people behind Nutritious Minds and I cannot wait for future ventures • The sole reason I started using my voice as a platform was to encourage positive and honest conversation about ADHD whilst helping some people along the way. What a journey it’s been so far • Here I am, chatting at a Nutritious Minds event back in July • Video credit Urban Focus Media 🖤 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #emyp #spokenwordartist #musician #publicspeaker #adhdawarenessmonth #adhdawareness #adhdwriter #adhdsupport #medicine #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #worldmentalhealthday #feminism #wordsmatter #humanrights #neurodivergent #neurodiversity #neuroscience #mentalhealthmatters #Wellness #therapy #connection #meditation #misconceptions #endthestigma #nutritiousminds #Ambassador #charity #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthtips

The connection between physical and emotional health // I’ve spoken a lot about this at different events over the years and seeing as I'm dealing with the effects emotional stress developing into physical pain, this post feels necessary • There is lots of evidence to support that if you are living with a mental health condition, your emotional stresses can often manifest into physical symptoms • It is no coincidence that EVERY time I "crash" mentally, I soon develop tonsillitis or some kind of viral infection • Truth is I’ve not been sleeping well. Falling back into bad habits with food, limited exercise, not allowing myself time for nice hot baths and early nights, and letting negative thoughts and feelings build up rather than letting them out. I am NOT looking after myself. A lot of us rarely do • Next time you have physical pain, and you can find no recognisable cause or reasoning have a think about how you’re feeling emotionally. Could it be stress, anxiety or depressive symptoms that are manifesting themselves in other areas? Are you eating nutritious food? Drinking too much alcohol? Over worked? Not getting enough fresh air? Look after yourself, really. You deserve it. We all do • 🖤 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #emyp #spokenwordartist #musician #publicspeaker #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthtips #Nutrition #Wellness #lookafteryourself #selfcare #adhdawarenessmonth #adhdawareness #adhdwriter #adhdsupport #medicine #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #worldmentalhealthday #neurodiversity #neuroscience #mentalhealthmatters #Wellness #therapy #connection #meditation #misconceptions #endthestigma #positivequotes #manifesting

Change can be really scary. Even when it’s positive, the thought of moving on from what feels comfortable, or even uncomfortable, can be daunting • BUT It’s okay to move on from something that no longer serves you. Allow yourself to exit situations, conversations, work and people that you have outgrown. Remember that ANYTHING that costs you your happiness is way too expensive • This is a reminder that you are capable of anything you put your mind to • You are in control of your own peace • Change can be scary, but it can be exciting and bloody beautiful 🖤 • . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #emyp #spokenwordartist #musician #publicspeaker #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthtips #Wellness #lookafteryourself #metamorphosis #selfcare #movingontips #takingrisks #Wellness #adhdawarenessmonth #adhdawareness #adhdwriter #adhdsupport #medicine #worldmentalhealthday #neurodiversity #neuroscience #mentalhealthmatters #therapy #connection #meditation #positivequotes #manifesting #takecontrol #peaceandlove

World Mental Health Day. Mental Health is more of a problem than it has ever been. Everyone knows someone affected by Mental Health and suicide rates are on the rise • There IS a way we can start to improve this • CONNECTION • We’ve created a society that, for the most part, has become dependant on something. We are now programmed to be connected to THINGS, not people • Humans are meant for connection, love and community. Somewhere along the way we’ve lost sight of that • Starting TODAY let’s talk less and listen more. Let’s be of service to someone. Let’s project kindness and light. Let’s make it easier to connect. We all need it • . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #emyp #spokenwordartist #musician #publicspeaker #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthisimportant #humanconnection #reachout #Wellness #adhdawarenessmonth #adhdawareness #adhdwriter #adhdsupport #medicine #worldmentalhealthday #neurodiversity #neuroscience #mentalhealthmatters #therapy #connection #beataddiction #meditation #positivequotes #manifesting in

Swipe <<>> Last night was special. Huge thank you to @snspoetry @mrsols and @lizamafia for creating such a warm welcoming space for me to share my stories. It also made me realise that I seriously need a few more songs and poems in my pockets after unexpectedly being called on for an encore. Was the perfect way to spend World Mental Health day • Tomorrow is the “Happy Place” album launch @thecolourhousetheatre // Spoken Word and Hip Hop fusion project from the incredible @woodzygram who asked me a few months back to collaborate on a track. Tomorrow night we all come together to celebrate and perform the project with a live band including performances from some of my absolute favourites • This event is SOLD OUT so if you didn’t manage to grab a ticket you’re seriously missing out but keep an eye out for the album dropping on all of the usual platforms • Have a great weekend people! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #emyp #spokenwordartist #musician #publicspeaker #mentalhealth #happyplace #hiphop #performancepoet #albumlaunch #mentalhealthtips #adhdawarenessmonth #adhdwriter #medicine #worldmentalhealthday #mentalhealthmatters #newmusic #originalmusic #peaceandlove

About last night.... 🤯 The launch of @woodzygram “Happy Place” project. A 12 track Spoken Word/Hip Hop album with some mad collaborations including a track with me 😏 • It was a bloody joy to perform my own set and then jump onstage with the main man himself to perform our track “Here for it” (Heres a little clip of us live) 🙌🏼🙌🏼 • Mad love to everyone who was there last night, was a pretty special atmosphere, @brokenpen_ @ilianna.music @ada_sings215 @libertyjordan_ @fivefilo - You all killed it and @woodzygram , thanks for asking me to join you and welcoming me into your Happy Place • “Happy Place” is available on Spotify NOW!!

“So you feel nervous and a little bit scared. Excellent. You care” • Here is some photographic evidence of me doing that confident, adrenaline filled, walk of relief back to my seat after performing and speaking about ADHD to a room full of Professors, Doctors, Scientists and experts in the field of Neuroscience and Mental Health • I’ve been speaking publicly and performing Spoken Word for the last 3 years. Do I still get nervous? Every. Single. Time. Wether it be an event like this, a large scale festival or a tiny open mic gig, In the hours leading up to a show, I am a bag of nerves. Thankfully the moment I get onstage or behind a mic, it all disappears and the usual chaotic, confident version of myself takes over. I’m most comfortable up there • You can use them nerves to be a powerful tool..... they are simply getting your body ready to do a job. A bloody good one at that • Photo: @nutritious_minds @coco_visionary . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #emyp #spokenwordartist #musician #publicspeaker #mentalhealth #Nutrition #performancepoet #mentalhealthtips #adhdawarenessmonth #adhdwriter #adhdtips #anxietytips #nerves #charity #Ambassador #medicine #neuroscience #neurodiversity #adrenaline #hyperactivity #HYPERfocus #positivethinking #Mindset #Wellness #worldmentalhealth #mentalhealthmatter

If you haven’t listened to @woodzygram “Happy Place” album yet..... why not?! It’s available on Spotify right now and I had the pleasure of featuring on the track “Here for it” • Here’s a little clip of us in action at the launch party.

Real Talk // • Nobody really posts their failures do they? That’s why we internally beat our selves up when we scroll through the perfect lives of who we follow. Fact is no one has got their shit together really. Everyone is muddling through • So for anyone who is feeling pretty crap today... here’s my face 11 hours into a working day that was pretty testing from the moment it started. I’m wearing a pair of trousers with holes in that don’t fit, my hair desperately needs a wash so it’s scraped back and my hood is up with a few greys poking through, no make up, I forgot to do 3 things that I’ve been meaning to do for the last two weeks, I didn’t get an opportunity that I thought I had in the bag, i found a stale bit of a sandwich crust under the seat of my car, my eyebrows need a tidy up with immediate effect, the beers I drank at the weekend have gone straight to my stomach and if I’m being 100% truthful I definitely didn’t put on enough deodorant this morning • Have I got my shit together today? Absolutely not. Do I care? Absolutely not • That’s what tomorrow is for 🖤 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #emyp #spokenwordartist #musician #publicspeaker #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthtips #Wellness #MondayMotivation #adhdawarenessmonth #adhdawareness #adhdwriter #adhdsupport #medicine #neurodiversity #neuroscience #mentalhealthmatters #therapy #connection #beataddiction #failures #success #lowselfesteem #getupandgo #lookafteryourself

A few months back I was fortunate enough to be chosen as one of 10 LGBTQ+ people who have made a difference to the community. We then had our photos taken by some incredible local photographers including Lou Hilliard and @gazdevere • Tonight @southendpride are launching the “People of Pride” photography exhibition, which is funded by the @peoplespostcodelottery , at the Royals Shopping Centre in Southend 6-8pm. The exhibition will be up and running for two weeks and will then tour other venues • So if you’re local to Southend and fancy seeing some shots of my scruffy head and a bunch of other bad ass LGBTQ+ people.... you know what to do • Here’s a few captured by Lou Hilliard outside @chinnerys_southend drinking my favourite @brewdogofficial beer // Looking forward to seeing the other photos • . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #emyp #spokenwordartist #musician #publicspeaker #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthtips #Wellness #photography #exhibition #showcase #adhdawarenessmonth #adhdawareness #adhdwriter #lgbtq #lgbt #pride #QueerCommunity #outandproud #lgbtcommunity #genderneutral #lesbianvisibility #lesbianpride #gaypride #genderfluid #adhdsupport

We all know the importance of self care. Having a beauty regime, skin care plan, eating right and buying ourselves new clothes etc can help us to feel and look better but sometimes life gets in the way • The last two months have been MAD busy which has meant a lot of that self care stuff has been thrown on the back burner • I haven’t had a hair cut in 3 months. Tbf I haven’t had my eyebrows done in that time either. I haven’t been drinking enough water, I haven’t done any exercise and I can’t remember the last time I bought clothes BUT tomorrow that changes • Ive got time off ! 🎉 I’ve spent the whole weekend napping, last night went on a lovely long late night walk by the seafront, today I had a well needed haircut, bought some new clothes and tomorrow I’m having my brows done. I know all of this is gonna make me feel a lot more human • So if you wake up tomorrow feeling a bit blue, find time to do something that’s going to make you feel a little more you. Book that appointment, spend any spare cash you have on treating yourself, go get your haircut or just have a nice long bath with your favourite bubbles • In the meantime here’s a picture of me with my scruffy hair and eyebrows and my favourite £3 charity shop shirt • P.s - I’ve always had really hairy arms. Quite like em. P.P.s - wrote a new poem yesterday and it’s 10 out of 10 good. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #emyp #spokenwordartist #musician #publicspeaker #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthtips #selfcare #lookafteryourself #adhdawarenessmonth #adhdawareness #adhdwriter #adhdsupport #charityshopclothes #vintagemarket #motivationalspeaker #poetry #newmaterial #songwriter #singersongwriter

Swipe for video. Whilst taking a walk through Liverpool we stumbled upon an art new installation. The umbrella project is a colourful canopy of 200 umbrellas suspended in the city centre. Each of the umbrellas have been personally signed by school children living with ADHD, Autism and other Neuro Developmental conditions. Big up @adhdfoundation who devised and curated this amazing project which is bringing much needed awareness and discussion to the topic of ADHD. A lovely heartwarming find.

Having ADHD and being impulsive is a double edged sword • Growing up as a teenager, whilst my brazen grin, spontaneity and erratic decision making got me into a fair bit of trouble, it also fuelled me to try everything and anything without worrying for a moment about people’s perception of me. I NEVER got embarrassed and if I wanted to do something.... I did it, regardless of what the kids at school said • It turns out the 15 year old version of myself knew a thing or two • REMEMBER.... Other people’s perception of you is completely out of your control. As long as you’re a compassionate, decent person with kindness in your heart, that’s all that matters. If you know yourself then don’t waste time worrying about what others think of you • Take risks, live your truth and when laying under a heap of branches and leaves get someone to take a photo. Looks cool AF 🖤 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #emyp #spokenwordartist #musician #publicspeaker #adhdawareness #adhdwriter #adhdsupport #Wellness #mindfulness #impulsive #hyperactivity #takingrisks #liveyourbestlife #wordsmatter #humanrights #neurodivergent #neurodiversity #neuroscience #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthsupport

When you live with ADHD, or any other Neurodiversity, it can feel impossible to see any positives. Growing up with ADHD often leads to crippling low self esteem and it’s not difficult to see why • But can ADHD be a gift? YES! • As a 30 year old with ADHD, finding little gems like this remind me that there is plenty to love about myself, if I allow myself to • And if you’re a parent with an ADHD child, why not show them this list? Or work together to create your own? It could be the beginning of swapping self sabotage for self love 🖤💛 • I can’t credit the author of this book as I can’t find it online, but if anyone knows, please share 🙌🏼🙌🏼 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #adhdsupport #adhdsolutions #adhdexplained #adhdcommunity #adhdtips #neurodiversity #neuroscience #austism #dyspraxia #adhd #selflove #Wellness #positivity #mindfulness #growingupadhd #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthsupport #selfesteem #community #stigma #publicspeaker #spokenwordartist #activism

Wow, what a night! Thank you @troubletongues for a bloody blinding show, celebrating their 1st birthday in style • The stage was graced by some of the best rappers and spoken word artists on the scene right now so felt electric to be on the bill after a couple of months off from live shows • There was a lot of love in that room last night, think this picture captured that perfectly. Being an audience member and watching everyone else was just as enjoyable as being up there.

Had the pleasure of collaborating with an amazing charity @nutritious_minds a couple of months ago. Speaking on a Q&A panel and performing, I shared my relationship with my ADHD and the misconceptions surrounding the condition • When I was invited to write a blog on my ADHD I never imagined I’d find it quite so emotional. It’s personal but I hope it portrays a very honest insight and gives a lot of hope to others who may be struggling with the condition • Link is in my bio..... check it, and while you’re there have a read of some of the other stories and the fantastic work that they do over at Nutritious Minds • . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #emyp #spokenwordartist #blog #blogpost #stories #nutritiousminds #musician #publicspeaker #adhdawareness #adhdwriter #adhdsupport #activism #wordsmatter #humanrights #neurodivergent #neurodiversity #neuroscience #mentalhealthmatters

This years pride month was full of performances and celebrations but it was made even more special when I was selected as one of ten LGBT + people who have made a difference to the local community • I had some photos taken by some Southend based photographers.

Chinnerys, Southend • Memories of me and my mates from school/ college heading down there on a Friday night with a worrying amount of eyeliner on and a whole can of hairspray to keep that mullet looking fresh 😣 • Snakebites and emo anthems • Missing the last train home.... a lot • Playing my first gig @chinnerys_southend with Southend Music College • Playing pop punk gigs after endless late night sweaty rehearsals with Emy’s Parade • Every time that @weareyouthclub have ever played. That’s not changing • The Southend music scene was my childhood and is still very much my adulthood. Good times man! • What place holds meaning to you? • 📸 - Lou Hilliard . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #livemusic #musicscene #unsignedartists #poppunk #emokid #heavymetal #alternative #scenekids #southendmusic #Youthclub #poetry #spokenwordartist #southendonsea #essexlivemusic #essexkid #messyhair #mullets #snakebites #gigs #alternativemusic #rocknroll

Dirty Thirty 🖤💛 Omg wow I just turned 30. How cool of me. Happy Birthday Emy.P Have a good one Love Me x

Negativity surrounding age is a funny ol’ thing. I’m approaching thirty years on this planet in a few days and have had a lot of people asking me how I feel about turning 30 • Us humans have an odd tendency to use Age as a marker of our beauty, personal achievements and financial status • Ageing doesn’t scare me. The wrinkles and lines on my skin don’t either. I’m fully embracing the grey hairs and am learning to accept my body and mind, choosing to focus on its strength and the amazing things it’s capable of • I don’t wish to be 20 again. I didn’t like myself much then. I like the present version of myself far more. So how do I feel about turning 30? A sense of achievement and a lot of gratitude 🙌🏼🖤💛 • . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #spokenword #mentalhealthswareness #adhdsupport #publicspeaker #neurodiversity #gratitude #mindfulness #selflove #selfcare #appreciation #ageing

Long story short...... Filmed another video with @muddyfeetpoetry. A piece very close to my heart about living with ADHD • It has been just six days since the video went live and the response has been beautiful. Hundreds of you have shared it, including some of the biggest ADHD and Autism Charities in the UK • I’ve chucked the link in my bio, so head to my profile if you want to see the full version • Let’s continue to share the hell out of it and start to break down some of those awful stigmas and misconceptions surrounding ADHD • Much love and big thanks 🖤💛 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #emyp #adhdawareness #adhdsupport #muddyfeet #thenumberrhymes #spokenword #poetry #musician #neurodiversity #neuroscience #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthandme #Wellness #selfcare #selflove #happiness

Up until this year, I had never met another girl or woman with ADHD. Seeing as I wasn’t diagnosed until later in life, this resulted in many years of isolation and low self esteem • Yesterday’s event allowed me to share a stage with some leading pioneers in their field of Neuroscience including Professor John Stein, Dr Alex Richardson (University of Oxford) as well as Celebrity Speakers, World famous Dj Brandon Block, Actor, the lovely Paul Danan, DJ Jumping Jack Frost, The founder of Raver Tots, Gemma Fox, @missvaleriem and many more.... • An absolute pleasure to perform, speak and share a panel with these people, sharing inspiring stories of Addiction, Mental Health and more. Not only was this a brilliant event for me to be a part of as a speaker but on a personal level, I left with a sense of belonging. It’s very rare to be in the company of fellow ADHD brains who have shared similar struggles. The information and advice given on the link between nutrition and ADHD has been invaluable and already excited to see where it takes me. Big thank you to @nutritious_minds and @lisanashfitness for hosting such a great event and creating such a warm welcoming space • Thank you to everyone I met yesterday. Each of you inspired me immeasurably • . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #emypmate #emyp #mentalhealthmatters #adhd #adhdawareness #adhdsupport #neurodiversity #autismawareness #dyspraxia #dyslexia #Nutrition #Wellness #happiness #selflove #nutritiousminds #positivity #hypnotherapy
