ADHD Coaching for Adults

A

 

DHD affects adults too—not just children.

If you feel like your life is in chronic chaos…

Or you’ve recently lost another job…

Or received feedback from your supervisor that you are not focused enough…

Or you’re a university student who is not passing exams no matter how many hours you study…

Or you’re tired of the setbacks in your life—the ones that cause pain and distress…

And you’ve experienced this for far too long,

The solution you’re looking for is ADHD coaching.

Get Your Life Back On Track

Failures are simply information. Are you ready to listen to them? Understand them? Do something different?

Here is How ADHD Coaching Can Help

Whether or not you have a diagnosis of ADHD, coaching can help you do better with the symptoms. Here are some things you can expect:

  • Increased awareness of where and how ADHD is preventing you from reaching your goals
  • Structures to support you in doing what you want to get done
  • Individualized strategies to reach your goals
  • Accountability and ways to measure your progress
  • Increased confidence in your ability to change your life

You can be assured that coaching is an accepted treatment for ADHD symptoms. Doctors and psychologists recommend it as a treatment because the data shows that medication is only 50% of the answer. Coaching can provide the other 50% because it addresses the self-management difficulties that accompany ADHD. Learning these skills empowers you to be more in control, more confident, and more effective in your day-to-day life.

What is ADHD Coaching?

ADHD coaching is a powerful relationship for learning and transforming your life. Everything that holds you back from living to your fullest potential is part of your curriculum. Limiting beliefs, barriers, and ADHD symptoms are all opportunities for you to learn the skills that go with a living a full and healthy life.

 

This is what the process looks like:

  1. Identify the overall goal that would improve your life. (I can assist you in clarifying your goal.)
  2. Explore what is getting in the way of your success, e.g. ADHD symptoms, limiting beliefs, or unresolved emotional blocks.
  3. Psycho-education about ADHD: understanding how ADHD affects your life equips you to make different choices day-to-day.
  4. Reflect, Revise, Revisit: this is to refine what is already working and improve what is not.

ADHD coaching works. It is not an overnight fix; it is a transformational tool for changing the rest of your life. The results are tangible and deep—if you want them to be.

Are You Ready to Take the First Step in Creating a Better Life?

Managing ADHD symptoms can feel impossible.  With coaching, the reality is that it IS possible to improve the quality of your life.

What to Expect From an ADHD Coaching Session


Your life and your experience of ADHD is unique. You bring your observations about what is and is not working, and we partner together to address the difficulties. I create a safe and non-judgmental place for you to reflect as I support you in identifying the changes you are ready to make. 

The work may include areas such as:

  • time management
  • prioritizing
  • following through
  • motivation
  • getting started
  • focus
  • procrastination
  • problem solving
  • impulsivity
  • emotional regulation


We will pay attention to your “ecosystem” to ensure all parts of your life are balanced and aligned with your goal, because ADHD affects many aspects of a person’s life.

I will be there to remind you, when setbacks occur, that they are a normal part of making changes. I will suggest tools and strategies for you to experiment with. Together, we will ensure that the work stays focused on your goals.

As in life coaching, self-awareness, mindfulness, and action plans are the cornerstones to this work.



Some questions to consider before committing to this work:

  1. Are you ready? Are you ready to reflect on how you work, and how well new strategies are working? Can you tolerate the process of trial and error? If not, therapy may be a better first choice.
  1. Is it you who wants this coaching, or someone close to you who wants you to do it? The motivation must come from you; this is critical to your success.
  1. Are you prepared to stick it out for an agreed-upon period of time? This type of change works, but it takes consistent effort. The best coaching results occur when the client persists over time.
  1. Are you committed to something better? Prepared to do things differently?

Your Invitation

You do not need a diagnosis of ADHD to get started.

I invite you to participate in a private ADHD coaching session to experience how effective coaching is in helping manage ADHD behavior.

This is my gift to you. There is no cost and no obligation beyond this session.

I have seen how untreated ADHD can wreak havoc with life goals. I also know how coaching can reverse those effects. Do yourself and your loved ones a favor: say YES to one powerful conversation.

Still not sure? Like you, Robert, Evelyn, and Jared lived the challenges of dealing with ADHD. Read their stories, and see how coaching changed their lives.

Everything in life is one step at a time…at your pace…in your time… Are you ready to take this one step? 

My daughter’s ADHD used to get me upset at key points in the day when too many things were happening at once. With my own ADHD I was already having enough trouble focusing. Her behaviour threw me off and I would feel angry. Now, I have learned how to manage these situations more calmly and effectively. It’s changed the dynamic inside me and with my daughter.”
