Hi! Welcome
to my site! 

I understand what it is like to coach and care for someone with a neurodevelopmental condition. My son Patrick, now 24, was diagnosed with a neurodevelopmental disorder at age 9. When my son was diagnosed, there were limited services available, so I researched and coached him to enhance and reinforce his skills, interests (areas of focus), and abilities...

Have you received a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder?

If you have received a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder, you might be trying to decide the best course of action moving forward. ADHD coaching is recommended as an adjunct to other treatments in order to assist you with managing your daily life and work.

 

Are you satisfied with your life?

Do you feel stuck, or need help with organizing, focusing, procrastinating, remembering commitments, channeling excess energy, managing stress, planning effectively, managing your time, controlling impulses, identifying goals and objectives and managing your emotions? I can help you with all of these challenges through a unique solution focused approach which is an empirically based, scientific approach, that has proven to be successful in coaching.

How will I coach you?

I will educate you on how to manage and take control of your challenges.  I will ask you questions to assist you so that you discover your own answers because you are unique. I will also support you by providing encouragement, feedback and practical suggestions to address specific challenges and hold you accountable for following through on your goals. I will offer you periodic reminders and suggest options if you feel stuck.  Regular meetings and check-ins are an essential part of the my coaching process. These sessions are online, or by phone, depending on your preference.

The first coaching session is typically a one hour meeting so that I can get to know your strengths and specific challenges. Thereafter, we develop clear goals to guide future coaching sessions. Regular coaching sessions will last sixty minutes and are used to report progress on the previous week’s goals, reflect on factors enhancing and inhibiting progress and develop a step-by-step plan for identifying and achieving the next week’s goals.

Why Addchieve coaching?

The models that I use are adapted from Solutions-focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Coaching (CBC). Both models puts you in charge because I believe that the answers you seek already reside within you. I focus on your desired future so that you can reach your full potential. The solutions that you seek can be discovered through our open, confidential and objective coaching sessions. 

 

What is your role in coaching?

Coaching is a client-driven process. For coaching to be successful, you must possess a strong desire for personal growth and improvement.

 What is the difference between a therapist and a coach?

 A therapist is problem focused, spends time dealing with the past, identifies and resolves negative beliefs, maladaptive behaviors, relationship issues, and feelings.  The goal in therapy is to focus on past traumas and issues to change self-destructive habits, repair and improve relationships and work through painful feelings.

A coach is solution-focused, does not give advice, develops goals and objectives, believes that the client has the answers within them and educates the client on how to achieve their goals through defined processes. Coaches look to maximize the client’s personal and professional potential. They believe that the client is the expert within their own life.  In addition, coaches align with what the client wants to achieve, encourages self-discovery, asks questions to identify the solutions and strategies that work for the client and they hold the client accountable in a way that works for them.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO GET FROM COACHING

Most coaching clients realize several, if not all, of the following outcomes:

 

  • Increased self-understanding and awareness

  • Greater appreciation and application of personal strengths

  • Clarity around values and goals

  • Improved self-management and personal effectiveness

  • Focused, purpose-driven actions
