What is ADHD Coaching?

Coaching is a collaborative, supportive, action-oriented process in which the coach and client work together to achieve the client’s goals and ultimately their full potential. A coach helps their client focus on where they are now, where they want to be, and how to best get there.

ADHD coaching is an ongoing partnership, based on mutual trust, which provides a safe environment for clients to explore their unique brain wiring in order to help them better understand themselves. ADHD coaches work with clients to create structures, build supports, develop skills and teach strategies that enable them to be more effective. Coaching helps clients to face obstacles and address core ADHD-related issues like time-management, organization and planning. Coaching is individualized and action-focused, so the client is working to build productive habits and stay focused on their goals.


ADHD Coaching also helps clients to:

  • Understand that the source of many of their challenges is ADHD, not personal shortcomings!

  • Safely reframe past failures and increase self-esteem.

  • Heighten self-awareness and use that new skill to improve decision-making and behavior.

  • Change perspective when feeling stuck in procrastination, perfectionism, black and white thinking and other common brain traps.

  • Identify their learning and processing styles, thus enabling them to comprehend situations and information more effectively.

  • Find their own solutions to issues, as opposed to being told what and how to do something.
