Adult ADHD coaching Q&A

What is adult ADHD coaching?

ADHD coaching focuses on giving you the practical tools needed to manage the work, academic, emotional, and personal issues caused by ADHD.

In addition to the core challenges of inattention, hyperactivity, and/or impulsivity, many adults with ADHD lack healthy executive function skills.

Executive function refers to the high-level cognitive skills essential for planning, organizing, making decisions, regulating emotions, and learning from past experiences.

Your coach serves as a collaborative partner as you identify your primary challenges and create personal goals. Then, they support your efforts with information, encouragement, and accountability.

When would I need adult ADHD coaching?

ADHD creates significant roadblocks as you strive to build relationships and succeed at work and in life. Coaching can help with all your roadblocks.

You should consider ADHD coaching if you:

  • Can’t stay focused on important tasks
  • Fail to meet important deadlines
  • Can’t create a work-life balance
  • Struggle with time management
  • Lack organizational skills
  • Have poor work performance
  • Can’t control angry or emotional outbursts
  • Find it hard to communicate your needs

These aren’t the only issues you can improve with coaching, but they represent the most common reasons people seek adult ADHD coaching at DuPage Psychiatric Care PLLC.

What should I expect during adult ADHD coaching?

Your ADHD coaching begins by exploring your emotions, behaviors, and the many facets of your life, pinpointing the problems you want to improve with coaching.

You work together with your coach to create goals. Your goals may target any issue, whether you have a long-term career goal or need help with specific issues like poor organization, procrastination, or controlling anger.

After identifying the goals you want to achieve, your coach helps you define the steps needed to reach that goal, establishing a timeline for completing each step.

They teach essential skills, recommend ways to build motivation, and keep you focused on the daily activities needed to accomplish each step.

Regular meetings are an important part of adult ADHD coaching. Checking in on a routine basis ensures you stay on task and also gives you time to assess your progress, ask questions, and make adjustments to the plan when needed to meet your needs.
