WHAT IS COACHING?
Coaching is a partnership between the coach and the client. There are usually multiple goals that the client wants to work on during the session. Over time the goals might change, and the coach will help the client work through those changes.
The coach will empower the client, but won’t do the client's work. The coach will listen to what a client is saying, observe their unspoken body language cues, and reflect back to the client. The coach will not tell the client what to do but will guide them to come to conclusions on their own. In order for the coaching relationship to be effective, the client must be motivated to change.
HOW DOES ADHD COACHING DIFFER FROM LIFE COACHING?
An ADHD coach will use their understanding of ADHD to help the client succeed. They offer tools and resources they learned specifically to enable individuals with ADHD to thrive.
HOW IS COACHING DIFFERENT FROM THERAPY?
Coaching is a partnership between the coach and the client.
A coach will focus on bringing awareness with the goal of partnering with the client to create a positive plan for growth.
A coach will not address serious psychological stress.
Coaching focuses on the present and the future.
In therapy, it is usually the therapist that takes the lead
Therapists can give a clinical diagnosis and support that diagnosis for healing.
Therapists often look at the past to guide the work they are doing.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN COACHING PLANS?
Coaching plans vary by client, but this is the basic process.
There is always a complimentary 30 minute pre-screening phone call.
We then follow up with a 1.5-2 hour discovery session.
The coaching begins.
You will meet with me once per week for approximately 45 minute sessions.
The plan fee is monthly and is paid before the sessions or at the beginning of the month.
WHAT IS THE PRE-SCREENING SESSION?
The pre-screening is a complimentary phone call where I will explain the coaching process.
You also get to clarify what you hope to achieve through coaching.
The purpose of this call is for both of us to see if we will be a good fit working together.
