Have you heard about ADHD coaching and wondered what it is? Really, it’s not so different from any other kind of coach.
Everyone knows a coach when they see one. There are football coaches, tennis coaches, dance coaches, voice coaches and executive coaches. And for the daily challenge of life itself there are life coaches. Put simply, a life coach helps people meet the challenges and opportunities life presents. An ADHD coach is a life coach who is specialized in the unique challenges of ADHD.
ADHD coaching works the same way as an athletic coach, only the game is life.
Your coach will work with you on the skills you may be missing and your game strategy, Over time, you will get better at all the things that are hard for you right now. Things like planning, prioritizing, time management, and organization. Your Edge ADHD coach will also help you apply these new skills to achieving the things you want most.
