Types of ADHD Coaching
It takes a lot of energy to make your way in the world with ADHD, and it can leave you feeling misunderstood, frustrated and angry. Working with a coach to learn how your brain works can help you develop new skills, hacks and workarounds to get things done—and to be gracious to yourself when you don’t.
Raising children with ADHD isn’t easy, and traditional parenting methods don’t always work. If you feel like you’re constantly in crisis mode and out of ideas, we can help you develop strategies that work. Parent/Family coaching is designed to help you navigate challenges and learn ways to help your whole family become the best version of themselves.
You want your child to believe they not only have the capacity to manage life’s complexities, but also the ability to do it successfully. Learning how ADHD affects their life can help them navigate it by developing new skills and attitudes to help them get things done. ADHD coaching can help your child take the driver’s seat in writing their own unique ADHD story.
A relationship + ADHD sometimes equals a rocky road. If you’re in a relationship with someone who has (or might have) ADHD, you likely feel frustrated, angry, ignored or lonely. Understanding the role ADHD plays in this and learning to identify the challenges it presents is essential—and it can help you both create specific steps to strengthen, repair or rebuild the relationship.
Research shows those with better social-emotional skills have stronger attention skills, fewer learning challenges and more success in academic settings. Like proficiency in math or English, skills like empathy, emotional management, relationship development, self-awareness and social awareness can be developed and grown over time.
