Neurodivergent therapist and activist Chris Oxborrow on her ideal and actual daily self and Self care

When it comes to your own self and Self care do you recognise whatever it is you need AND know that you deserve it? This can be a bit of an advanced practice sometimes!

Who helps you co-regulate?

Are you getting to know yourself and your energy – especially as it changes with perimenopause and menopause (for people going through it)?

Do you ever give into ‘revenge bedtime procrastination’? (See Episode 2 with Rebecca Seal for more on this too.)

Let us know in the comments 🙂


Chris Oxborrow is a neurodivergent psychotherapist who specialises in working predominantly with high achieving personalities, but also with neurodivergent clients and those navigating the menopause (sometimes all 3!). She supports clients to discover their authentic sense of themselves and how their needs can be met with more compassion and self-acceptance.

She also works as a Menopause and HRT Educator, supporting clients to discover how they want to manage their menopausal experience and how to access appropriate HRT related health care.

I started The Feel Better Every Day Podcast because I realised that even with the focus of my work being self and Self care (for 20 years now!), I often struggle. And so do so many of my colleagues. We’re all human! So I interviewed several of them including neuroscientists, authors writing about health and wellbeing, fitness professionals, therapists, coaches, energy workers and medical professionals.

We ALL have gaps and even gulfs between what we would LOVE to be doing for ourselves each day and what we actually do. My hope with each episode is that you’ll go easier on yourself and do something rather than nothing from your own ideal self or Self care repertoire. Create a life you don’t need to retreat from! Let me know how you get on! I really love hearing from y’all.
