How can a coach help you?

ADHD Coaching focuses on the specific needs of the individual being coached. Like all coaching, it is a supportive, goal-oriented process in which the coach and the client work to develop the tools, strategies and confidence necessary to help the client reach his or her potential.

The difference between AD/HD coaching and other coaching processes is that the coach is trained and experienced in working with people with AD/HD and is capable of helping that person develop strategies which maximize the talents of the AD/HD brain and compensate for the individual difficulties the AD/HD client experiences.

Typically, this type of coaching helps individuals with AD/HD develop the structures, processes, and practical approaches necessary to meet the challenges of everyday life and excel in their areas of special talents.
