Did you just receive an Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) diagnosis?
If so, you might be trying to decide the best course of action moving forward. ADHD coaching is recommended as an adjunct to other treatments in order to assist you with managing all of life's responsibilities.
What is an ADHD Coach?
A well-trained, certified ADHD coach has the skills and tools to educate their clients in simple, memorable, and creative ways so that they will understand and identify how their particular brand of ADHD shows up in different situations. Individualized education suited to each person’s ADHD is the foundation for the successful management, and eventual progress, with ADHD.
In addition, well-trained ADHD coaches work with clients to create and identify the “Five S’s”: Strengths, Structures, Support, Systems, Skills, and Strategies. Coaching assists clients with ADHD to stay focused on their goals, face obstacles and address core ADHD-related issues such as: time management, organization, procrastination, and prioritizing. Coaching also allows clients to gain clarity and function more effectively to improve their self-esteem. ADHD coaches work with their clients to develop customized strategies to move forward toward their goals, to deepen their self-awareness, and to continue moving toward fuller and more satisfying lives. The client is seen by the ADHD coach as resourceful and, thus, with increasing self-awareness, as fully capable of discovering his or her own answers. The coach empowers the client to discover their own solutions by asking the client powerful questions that will encourage them to explore different strategies that work in harmony with their unique brain wiring.
