Who Can Benefit from ADHD Coaching
ADHD coaching is wonderful for individuals with ADHD because it addresses the stuff that isn’t necessarily solved with medication. Whether or not you are taking medication, ADHD coaching can help an individual become organized, learn time management skills, how to prioritize, and even provide a safe space to work on social skills. Unlike therapy that looks into your past to understand your present, coaching looks at the present to help you move forward in the areas you choose to work on.
What is ADHD coaching?
An ADHD coach is a “life coach” specifically trained to help adults (and teens and kids) with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) better manage their lives. For example, perhaps you want to switch jobs or stop chronic disorganization and lateness, which have been hurting your marriage. Or perhaps your child needs help with completing the piles of homework he gets, now that he’s in middle school. Or maybe you’re looking to better yourself all around — in areas like physical fitness, emotional growth, social skills, financial planning, and the workplace — and need guided motivation. The solution, in each case, may be to team up with an ADHD coach.
