ADHD, or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, is a condition that affects how the brain develops and works. It affects both children and adults.

People with ADHD often have trouble focusing, staying still, organizing tasks, and can act without thinking things through first. These challenges are consistent and ongoing, affecting their daily life and activities.

The exact cause is unknown, but researchers think it combines genetic, environmental, and neurological factors.

ADHD is typically managed through a combination of medication, behavioral therapy, and lifestyle changes. Understanding and support from family, friends, and colleagues also play a crucial role.

ADHD Coaching

ADHD meds help with some symptoms, but getting organized and managing time can still be a hurdle. And your self-confidence still takes a hit every time you "don't live up to your potential" (a phrase too many of us have heard way too many times in our lives).

Research shows that ADHD coaching leads to improved executive function skills, improved self-efficacy, and improved self-esteem.

In plain English, coaching can give you the support you need to thrive.

With coaching, having space to talk through your challenges out loud can be very effective. Being able to verbally map out what you're dealing with and process things with your coach instead of just inside your head can lead to more clarity and make all the difference in your professional and personal lives.

Got an ADHD brain freeze? A coach can help you get unstuck or reduce feeling overwhelmed as well.

Having someone guide you through breaking ambitious goals into achievable steps makes things feel much more doable.

Lastly, a coach can act as your accountability partner, help you stay motivated, and move forward instead of shutting down when things get confusing or frustrating.
