Living with ADHD can be stressful
There is nothing more frustrating than knowing you are bright and talented but still struggle with everyday responsibilities that seem easy for others to accomplish.
These frustrations might include:
- Procrastinating on a project until your team members are frustrated with you
- Difficulty managing your time when meetings take up most of your day,
- Starting the semester strong but fizzling out in motivation and focus long before the end
- Studying well for a test or presentation, only to freeze with anxiety and not be able to perform well.
Now you can stop stressing out about:
- Being disorganized
- Time management
- Lacking consistency…worn out from the cycle of doing too much or doing too little
- Starting the semester strong but fizzling out in motivation long before the end
- Preparing well for a presentation, only to freeze with anxiety and not be able to perform
You put extraordinary effort into keeping all the balls in the air and inevitably one or two drop. Sometimes important ones that hurt yourself or those you love. You feel badly and wonder what is wrong with you.
Its Not Your Fault
I will show you how to identify the symptoms of ADHD, and you will no longer see them as personal shortcomings. You will discover what executive strengths and weaknesses you have, and receive quality training to overcome those weaknesses with routines and structure designed specifically toward your unique situation. You will discover how to work with yourself, to attain a new level of efficiency and comfort in both your personal and professional life. ADHD has a very strong genetic component, some researchers believe as high as 80%, understanding how your brain works and taking responsibility for that wiring is very empowering.
Coaching is an active partnership between you and your coach. Using the most current research in human development and brain science, coaching consists of:
- a comprehensive assessment to evaluate what’s working and what’s not working
- client-specific training,
- professional support, gentle accountability
- gradual fading of support to help you maintain your goals
Coaching is intended to build confidence, motivation and self-reliance. It is not a quick fix. Over time you will train your brain to be more productive and you will once again enjoy learning.
When work and school is difficult, one needs a coach who is not. I accept my clients where they are and listen deeply to their concerns. By building rapport and helping them identify what’s working and what’s not working for them, they are able to take ownership of the changes they wish to make.
I am an equal, active partner with my clients and their families. Spouses and partners of a person with ADHD need information and support to increase coaching success and decrease family stress. Students make fast and long-lasting change when their parents make a commitment to be willing to grow and change themselves.
Clients learn to slow down and mindfully pay attention to their thoughts, feelings and behaviors. They become more reflective and better observers of themselves in their world. They learn to access their intuition as a powerful tool for defining their life path.
