Our ADHD Coaching Process
We unite with you and pair up with your ADHD journey. Our ADHD coaching uses a 4-step process that empowers you to follow through. Here is what that process looks like in a little more detail.
1. Uncover And Clarify Your Goals
Every ADHD coaching session we focus on the most important thing(s) you want to cultivate or improve. Sometimes it’s not evident, and so we have to go digging until we uncover it. We ask questions and listen for what your experience is telling us. Often it is right there, just beneath the surface.
We find that mind-mapping can be an incredible tool for bringing about clarity, and use it a lot throughout the ADHD coaching process. It helps for externalizing and sorting out the layers of thought when the mind feels cluttered. Getting them out on a canvas allows you to see what’s otherwise invisible.
2. Draft a Plan For Action
Because all results come from action, we draft an action plan. We break your goal up into manageable tasks, and make sure that you always know the next step to take.
It’s important to make your goals and action plan clear and measurable, so it can be realistically tracked over time. Together we plan out your week, and incorporate the action steps for storming your goal(s) and creating momentum.
3. Anticipate Obstacles And Create A Strategy
It’s important to anticipate the realistic challenges that can occur when you want to change your life for the better. Planning for and incorporating these challenges helps diffuse their power. It’s when they aren’t planned for, that they can hit hard and deflate our self-esteem and momentum.
Pretending to change, and actually making the change are two different things. We are wholehearted about the latter. It’s why we incorporate obstacles and challenges into the ADHD coaching process. It gives us the ability to craft better strategies.
4. Set Accountability Check-Ins
Sometimes the thing you wanted to get done, doesn’t get done. Or sometimes an off day gets you down. Maybe your whole plan feels botched.
These things happen. We all have crappy days. This is understandable and part of the human experience. It’s important to schedule check-in times throughout the week. To see how you’re feeling and talk about it. Sometimes your plan needs a simple change, so you keep your momentum going.
Maybe it’s a quick phone call, or a text message. Checking-in with you throughout the week is an important tool for ADHD coaching. It helps redirect your eyes, so they stay on the prize.
