Opening Doors to Growth

What is an ADHD Coach?

I find that people with ADHD work longer and harder than anyone. My focus is on working with these individuals to unlock potential and help them navigate a path toward greater independence.  I’m holding the map, but the client is always in the driver’s seat.

F60ED0133DADHD Coaches are, first and foremost, trained coaches who endorse and accept the coaching paradigm of the International Coach Federation (ICF), and who additionally have specific training and expertise in coaching people and/or groups affected by ADHD.

ADHD Coaching addresses the specific needs and aspirations of the individual being coached. Unlike conventional coaching, however, ADHD Coaching also addresses the specific needs of clients who have ADHD or ADHD-like symptoms. Therefore, ADHD Coaches focus on working with clients on their personal goals, but can also work on professional goals and the pragmatic issues of achieving them while living with ADHD. It is a supportive, collaborative, goal-oriented process in which the coach and the client work together to identify the client’s goals and then develop the self-awareness, systems, and strategies necessary for the client to reach those personal goals and full potential.
