ADHD coaching: Use your extraordinary talents

It's easy to spend huge amounts of energy trying to be neurotypical, but it's always unsuccessful.

I’m ADHD. I discovered it recently an it explained so much. As part of my discovery, I found self-kindness.

I recognise now that I was trying to become someone I’m not. I’m neurodiverse. It’s not going away.

I can choose to work with it – swimming with the current – or against it. Swimming against the current will lead to me being unkind to myself and the negative emotions that come with it. Guess which is most effective for a happy and successful life?

You have fireworks going off in your head, and you're intelligent, but why are some easy things so damn hard to achieve?

Learn to use your ADHD

Your business and your life will be significantly happier if you work with your ADHD, and focus on what you’re effective at, leaving others to what they can do.

This is the start of a journey where you succeed more than fail.

“The difference from my first session to now is life changing for me. The growth is so wonderful”.

Let's learn what works for you

I’ve discovered I’m ADHD and have optimised my life to ensure that I get the most from my amazing abilities. Would you like to do the same?

Discover kindness

It’s very common for ADHD people to be people pleasers who will put the needs of others before themselves, since they are aware they’re different and feel an element of shame and embarrassment. We can work together to discover where they aren’t putting their needs first, and grow to look after themselves.

Poor short term memory

You interrupt people. You’re incredibly talkative. You’re impulsive. How do you deal with these situations? Together, we can develop strategies to help you cope with these difficult elements which stem from a poor short term memory, and the fear of forgetting.

Disorganisation, priorisation and planning

Planning and building habits can be a real struggle for ADHD people, which causes significant business difficulties. Paradoxically, allowing others to work to their strengths can be difficult due to issues with beating yourself up and feeling you should do it all.

Coping with boredom

Sitting and listening are often amongst the most difficult situations an ADHD person can find themselves in, leading to tricky situations when you’re required to be in meetings. Being honest and vulnerable might be difficult due to self-confidence issues. Let’s solve these.

ADHD doesn't have to be a hinderance. If used correctly, it'll make you a super-human entrepreneur and business owner. Let's find out how to swim with the current!

Look inward, not outward

It’s common for ADHD people to beat themselves up for what they can’t do, instead of focusing on what they can.

We were meant to build amazing businesses with our crazy brains; but only if we allow ourselves to focus away from trying to be something we’re not.

“I’m doing really well. Probably the best I’ve been. I have to thank you for the tools you’ve given me to deal with issues.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Coaching is a process of helping people to find the destination they want to arrive at, and supporting them as they make the journey. It’s not advice, although I regularly use my experience as a business owners to help you with practical suggestions. It’s key to understand that you’re always in charge though.
If you’re ADHD, you’ll need to learn how to live in a life designed for neurotypicals. ADHD coaching will allow you to find the path that best suits you, since some of your coping strategies will not be being successful. Together, we will replace them with more successful strategies.
We typically meet every 1 to 3 weeks for an hour, and look at how you’re doing. You lead the sessions and I help you to uncover the meaning and the learning that you can gain from each situation.
Mentoring is giving advise and guiding. Coaching is helping people to evaluate the options they have and determining good strategies they can use to choose. I do offer an element of relevant suggestions during coaching – where I feel I have relevant experience – but the final choice is always yours.
Happiness often comes from accepting who and how you are, without judgement. We’ll work together to help you develop a more kind way of living that suits you and your needs, and works to your strengths.

I have time for you

I’d love to listen to your journey and where you are today. I’d love to hear what’s going well, and what you’ve yet to achieve. I’d love to just have a chat today, if that’s what you need.

This doesn’t need to end in a sale. I really do have time for you.
