Guest: Dr Michelle Gregory

In this episode I talk to Dr Michelle Gregory, Principal Clinical Psychologist, specialising in Functional Neurological Disorder and Long Covid. Michelle loves working with neurodiverse young people, as well as adults to help them recover from and live a better life with a long-term health problem. She shares that she has lived experience of FND, "so it means I not only have clinical expertise, but I get what it’s like to live with and recover from a misunderstood health condition which involves brain/body/mind connections"

We cover:

- What exactly is FND

- Myths and misconceptions about FND.

- Barriers to diagnosis

- Dr Michelle’s lived experience of FND

- Supporting and understanding the needs of those with FND.
