Evidence-based, shame-free 
planners & resources designed for ADHD brains.

In a world where the prevailing medical model defines ADHD only in terms of its deficits, I prefer to begin conversations on ADHD by defining myself by who I am, instead of what I’m not. 

This isn’t to dismiss or ignore the very real challenges that come with being neurodivergent. But I’ve noticed that my biggest ADHD deficit isn’t the sleep deprivation or the procrastination. It’s the shame I’ve carried with me since childhood. Over decades, we have accumulated layered self-beliefs and negative messages that plague us — after a lifetime of feeling misunderstood and simultaneously too much, and not enough. It’s a deep unspoken fear, epitomised in the questions we ask ourselves regularly: ‘What’s wrong with me? Why can't I do basic things others find so easy?’

Know this. There is nothing wrong with you. Your brain makes sense - it just works differently. At Future ADHD, we are striving to make this brain-based difference more widely understood and valued.

We believe self-acceptance starts with curiosity and self-understanding.

Our team works hard to create innovative and original templates, tools and strategies that are informed by the latest science in ADHD to help you finally understand what's going on instead your brain and learn to support yourself, whatever situation you find yourself in. Living with ADHD (and a complex array of other vulnerablities) in a world that isn’t designed for neurodivergents isn’t easy. No matter what your story is, Future ADHD offers you a safe place where your brain makes sense - a way to re-frame your struggles, unshame your past, and learn to work with your ADHD brain.

About the founder

Grace Koelma, ADHD advocate & educator

I'm Grace, the founder of Future ADHD, and lead designer of all our products & tools. I'm an Education Specialist and a Certified Breathwork & Meditation Teacher who was diagnosed with ADHD at 33. 

My ongoing education on the intersection of ADHD and holistic therapies includes courses with the Sante Fe Institute for Shame-Based Studies, Somatic process work, Internal Family Systems, 10 Types of Rest, and the Polyvagal Theory of Nervous System Regulation.

I founded Future ADHD together with my husband in mid-2022, and have been hanging on for the wild ride as it grows at a rapid pace — a clear indicator that there is such a hunger for legitimate and science-informed ADHD resources right now.

I'm a delight-driven life enthusiast with a neurospicy brain and a decade-long fascination with developmental psychology, mindfulness, neural plasticity, and — more recently — how that intersects with brain-based differences like ADHD. In 2022, after being officially diagnosed with ADHD, I did a huge neuroscience deep dive and developed a comprehensive ADHD planner that neurodivergent brains could actually stick with, with templates and tools based on the work of several ADHD experts and behavioural scientists... and I'm incredibly proud to say that it's now the No. 1 ADHD planner in the world, with more than 50,000 users globally (including therapists, psychologists and coaches), and 3500+ rave reviews.

I get messages almost on a daily basis from people who have found organisation and mental clarity with a planner for the first time in their lives. Honestly, I think that's pretty incredible, and this work has motivated me to continue to provide strategies and support for the ADHD community based on neurobiology, polyvagal theory, unconscious beliefs, breathwork, nervous system regulation, meditation and radical acceptance practice, somatic therapies, bilateral stimulation, IFS inner child therapy and much more.
