When I meet my clients, I begin by asking them to describe the areas of their life that are a challenge. I listen carefully because I am looking for the particular organizational skills that are interfering with their ability to finish tasks. Those organizational skills are often referred to as the executive functions. I help my clients to try new strategies that work well for people who have organizational challenges. I find that it is important to develop an individually tailored approach.
As an ADHD Coach, I offer a gentle and encouraging approach. I find that many of my clients have received too much negative feedback. I believe that it is important to be positive about the progress that my clients make and to be very clear about the steps that remain to reach their goal.
