Coaching for ADHD

I used to struggle with ADHD without knowing or understanding what it was or what I needed to do to manage it successfully. Having the diagnosis was only the beginning. Real change started when I began to use a combination of coaching tools and counselling in real world scenarios that made sense to me

What makes ADHD so challenging?

Honestly - sometimes just life!

Things that are seemingly easy and automatic for some can feel like mountains to climb for those with ADHD.

Executive function - our ability to act in a timely, organized or methodical fashion - is greatly affected. Avoidance and procrastination can make even the most simple tasks feel overwhelming. Impulsivity, though an adventure, can also be really challenging.

How does coaching help people with ADHD?

I see ADHD as a SuperPower! And like any powerful skill, sometimes we need support in harnessing those abilities to become the most effective version of ourselves.

If your diagnosis is new, chances are you’ve got a history of feeling a lot of frustration but with not much understanding. Coaching will help you gain clarity on your strengths and weaknesses and how you can use them to navigate these to your advantage.

What makes coaching different from counselling?

Counselling works by looking back at past events to get to the heart of negative behaviours and patterns with the goal of healing.

Coaching works in a similar way but it’s more forward focused. It’s not about where you’ve been, but where you want to go.

What is my approach?

Listening, encouraging and game planning. My support and your openness are the key ingredients for your success. Your willingness to try new things, knowing that not everything will work, is when growth occurs.

Using the tools of empathy, listening and compassion, we will create a road map to your goals which takes into account your unique personality, talents and skills.
