"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Successful management of ADD/ADHD requires an individualized approach which includes ADHD education, skill development, and the implementation of practical systems and strategies. Check out my expert blog post on ADHD coaching and its benefits.
How can coaching help me manage my ADD/ADHD?
As your coach, I will partner with you to create a safe, non-judgmental space where we can identify what may be standing in the way of you reaching your goals; explore ways in which you can maximize your strengths, passions, and talents; and develop strategies that are specific to your needs and what you want to achieve. Though the actual focus of each session will depend on the client's particular needs and goals, ADHD coaching generally includes the following:
ADHD education: ADD/ADHD looks different from person to person. What you may struggle with, others may not and vice versa. That's why it's critically important to begin to develop an understanding of how the ADHD brain is wired as well as what your particular strengths and challenges are.
Skill development: Many of the challenges associated with ADD/ADHD are related to skill deficits such as time management, organization, and prioritization. That's why you or your child may still struggle in these areas even while on ADHD medication. As your coach, I will help you begin to develop and strengthen the skills necessary to overcome these common ADHD-related challenges.
Practical strategies, systems, and tools: As your coach, I will partner with you to create and implement personalized strategies, systems, and tools that will help you successfully manage ADHD-related challenges such as time management, organization, prioritization, planning, difficulties getting started on and completing tasks, social difficulties, and self regulation.
Coaching sessions may be conducted remotely via phone, web/video conferencing, or in-person at my office in the Courtyard Business Center located at 27281 Las Ranblas Suite #200, Mission Viejo, CA 92691.
