What’s ADHD Coaching and Why Should I Hire an ADHD Coach?
Updated: Sep 27, 2019
Adults with ADHD often struggle with staying focused and organized and often find it hard to be productive. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a professional to help them live a more comfortable life and become more efficient, focused, and organized? That’s exactly where ADHD coaching comes in handy.
It’s what it sounds like: it’s a coaching service specially designed for adults with attention-deficit disorder (ADHD). It encompasses a professional who is trained to help these people beat old habits such as disorganization, procrastination, and negative thinking. An ADD coach can help point out when the hyperactive mind has started going down the route of negativity and unproductivity. With the help of ADD / ADHD coaching, you can clarify your goals, objectives, values, and activities as well as identify obstacles that might keep you from achieving those goals. Unlike psychotherapists, an ADD coach helps you focus better on your priorities, tasks, actions, and schedules.
With that said, ADD coaching looks to tackle life and work practicalities such as memory recall, time management, organizational skills, and other functional issues an ADHD adult may be going through. It offers a holistic strategy that meant to build every aspect of your life.
Who actually is an ADHD coach?
This is a specialist who helps those with ADD / ADHD to lead a fulfilling, productive life. Think of an ADD / ADHD coach as a mentor who guides you to reach personal insights and master coping skills required to navigate the complex world of business, career, relationships and everyday life. Remember, this is a professional who is highly trained and experienced in both life coaching and attention deficit disorder.
The reasons why You should Find an ADD Coach
Being late, scattered, overwhelmed, and disorganized is an everyday struggle for adults with ADD. But, it doesn’t have to be that way, and an ADD / ADHD coach can help in more than one way. An ADD / ADHD coach enables you to identify and work around ADD / ADHD stumbling blocks so you can stop struggling and set yourself up for success.
With that, here are ADD / ADHD coping skills that an ADD / ADHD coach can help you with:
Decluttering your life, workspace, and digital clutter
Cultivating good time management skills
Developing effective organizational skills
Planning and being accountable for your goals and objectives
Working on big projects
Prioritizing tasks, projects, etc
Sprucing up Interpersonal skills
Improving communication and relationship skills
In the long term, ADD / ADHD coaching is a vehicle for facilitating people with ADHD to become successful and more productive on their own terms.
