Perhaps you’re tired of struggling to accomplish your essential priorities. Maybe you’re exhausted from working all night to meet deadlines. Whatever your reason, you’ve decided you want to find an ADHD coach.
Someone to hold you accountable and guide you to be more productive and organized. To help you live calmer and more intentionally yet still use your creativity and energy to accomplish your goals.
Finding an ADHD coach can be tricky. Most of us work by phone or Skype from our home offices so we’re hidden away. You probably won’t see a sign announcing ADHD Coaching Here while you’re driving down the street.
How do you find the right ADHD coach? A trained professional to help you learn the exact ADHD management skills you need?
How to Find an ADHD Coach
Professional Organizations. You’ll find a complete listing of ADHD coaches on the ADHD Coaches Association (ACO) website. Look under the ‘Find A Coach’ section. Remember, most coaches work virtually so location doesn’t matter. I have clients all across the USA and Canada and even overseas.
CHADD. The organization for Children and Adults with ADHD has a professional listing, too.
Since most coaches have websites the Internet is a great place to find an ADHD coach. Simply searching for ADHD coaches won’t get you the best results though. Instead Google a symptom you have trouble with, such as getting organized with ADHD.
Dig around to find blogs posted on the subject by different ADHD coaches. Look at the web sites. Read each coach’s posts. Subscribe to their newsletter. Look for someone you resonate with. Someone who has a creative, useful approach to living with ADHD who works with clients like you.
Since many ADHD coaches have ADHD themselves you want someone who can manage their own ADHD to help you learn to manage theirs. One sign that a person can follow-through and focus is how consistently they blog.
You may have to do some digging when you decide it’s time to find an ADHD coach, but don’t give up. Finding the right coach to guide you to create a more successful and effortless ADHD life is worth the effort.
