What is ADHD Coaching with a Registered Psychotherapist?

ADHD coaching is a specialised form of life coaching designed to help individuals with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) manage their symptoms and develop essential life skills. This coaching approach focuses on building personalised strategies to address the unique challenges associated with ADHD, such as time management, organisation, goal setting, and maintaining focus. ADHD coaches work collaboratively with clients to create tailored plans that leverage their strengths and mitigate their weaknesses, fostering greater independence and success in daily life.

  • Enhanced Focus and Productivity: Develop skills to maintain attention, reduce distractions, and increase overall productivity.
  • Goal Setting and Achievement: Set realistic and achievable goals, and create actionable plans to reach them.
  • Emotional Regulation: Gain techniques to manage impulsivity, reduce stress, and enhance emotional stability.
  • Self-Advocacy and Communication: Improve communication skills and learn to advocate for your needs in various settings, such as at work or school.
  • Building Routines and Habits: Establish consistent routines and positive habits that support daily functioning and long-term success.

 

How ADHD skillbuilding can help with work and school

Skills training for ADHD can dramatically enhance performance and satisfaction in both work and school settings. By developing tailored strategies for time management, organisation, and task prioritisation, individuals with ADHD can more effectively meet deadlines, manage workloads, and reduce the stress associated with juggling multiple responsibilities. Improved focus and concentration techniques help maintain attention during meetings, classes, and study sessions, leading to better productivity and academic performance. Additionally, learning effective communication and self-advocacy skills enables individuals to navigate professional and educational environments more confidently, fostering stronger relationships with colleagues, supervisors, and educators. Through skills training, individuals with ADHD can achieve greater success and fulfilment in their work and academic pursuits.

 

What an ADHD Coaching and Skill-Building Session Might Look Like

In an ADHD coaching session, your coach will begin by understanding your specific challenges and goals. The session typically starts with a discussion about your recent experiences and identifying areas that need improvement. Your coach will then introduce and teach practical strategies tailored to your needs, such as techniques for better time management or methods to enhance focus. Sessions are interactive, with coaches providing guidance, feedback, and support as you practise new skills. You may also receive homework assignments to reinforce what you’ve learned and track your progress. The coach will help you build a toolkit of strategies to manage ADHD symptoms and achieve your personal and professional goals.
