ADHD LIFE COACHING

There is a great deal of information and support online for people who have ADHD. The cornerstone of ADHD treatment is having a person to support you. A person who supports you and has years of training and experience in working with people who have ADHD can be the best solution. There are many decisions about medication, exercise, diet, communication at work, and with family that can be so much easier with an ADHD  life coach.

ADHD is so much more than a distraction, lack of focus, and/or the need for stimulation. It impacts every single part of your life, often in a positive way, sometimes in a negative way. Coaching helps with the ability to leverage the positive and manage the negative aspects of ADHD.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

An ADHD diagnosis is just the beginning!  Understanding and acceptance are critical to the process of creating a fulfilling life that includes this part of you rather than trying to hide it. It is real and there is no cure. There are many treatments.

 

     Did you know that sometimes people with ADHD...

 

  • are not good self observers.

  • do not adequately describe their symptoms to their doctor.

  • forget things in-between visits to the doctor.

  • become distracted and go off-topic in their time with the doctor.

  • do not understand what to measure to report on whether meds are working.

  • resist mailing things (like claim forms and checks)

  • have trouble finishing tasks requiring sustained focus, like writing long emails.

  • are highly sensitive.

  • are challenged with life balance and time, management making treatment plans difficult to follow.

  • have many more traits and symptoms that people without it do not have!

 

Many clients are relieved to learn that some of their concerns are not about the bad character but are actually traits of ADHD that are not often talked about.

Things to consider

when hiring a coach

  • Coaching is not going to heal you. ADHD is not an illness. Sometimes emotional wounds heal as a result of coaching because you enter therapy with more clarity or are more able to follow through with therapy work as a result of having a coach.

  • You must be willing to look at other perspectives. Coaching is about change. Openness to trying"something different" is important to the process.

  • Honesty is crucial to the coaching relationship.

  • Understanding that coaching is a partnership that requires your participation. 

  • Hire a professional. Have they had Life Coaching Training? Are they a member of the ADHD Coaches Organization? Are they staying current with the latest in ADHD research and continuing education?
