WEAKNESS IS NOT A FAULT ... Unless It's Ignored
Weakness is a requirement. Its a prerequisite for strength. In our weakness we are made strong.
We do not get stronger by lifting something we can already handle.
Our strength builds during weakness. Without weakness without challenge there will be no change
Uncover How You Can Transform Your ADHD Into Your New Superpower
So Tell Me What Is and Why ADHD Coaching?
ADHD coaching is a relatively new field that has become well known for its effectiveness with supporting the individuals to improve many aspects of functioning with ADHD across the age span in recent years.
Whether you are diagnosed or undiagnosed with ADHD , this coaching model is a specialty within the broader field of coaching that focuses on delivering practical interventions tailored to address the specific cognitive skill challenges that are most commonly linked to ADHD and can interfere with the person's quality of life. Most often those challenges stem from executive functions diffculties.
What does Executive Functions mean?
Executive functions are the basic skills of self-management that allow us to set goals and achieve them. Such as managing our emotions, taking initiative, staying focused, time management, being organized, planning, prioritizing and recognizing when we’re off track and figuring out how to recover. Some examples of how executive functions struggles might show up,
Messy and constantly surrounded by clutter (Messy closet, desk,etc.)
Problems keeping track of your things (Constantly losing or misplacing keys, watch, wallet,etc.)
Overwhelemed easily by bigger efforts or having to choose between a variety of options (Shopping at the supermarket)
Forgetful of tasks and important details (Keep forgetting appointments and conversations with others)
Struggle to get started on projects and completing them withouth getting distracted (Feeling overwhelemed and cant decide how to start the work and have poor judgment of how long things take cant stick to schedule and deliver on time)
Constant feeling like you are in a rush, and impatient (Really dislike waiting for turn and standing in lines )
Always late (Frequently showing up late to appointments, or rescheduling last minute)
Can't stay focused in a conversarion
Cant' retain information easily (Sometimes you might need to read the same page over and over)
Cant keep emotions in check, mood swings, frequently blurt out things interrupting conversations, and make implusive actions.
The key aspect in those behaviors' that contributes to being an executive function struggle for an individual lies in the frequency and the impact it brings on their daily life.
ADHD and Executive functioning issues are highly linked but not the same, ADHD Coaching doesn't focus on a diagnosis .The objective is to offer assistance in developing self-regulation, by helping each individual identify what's interfering with their personal and professional advancement and provide the tools to help with acquiring the necessary set of cognitive skills.
Knowing ADHD is not just enough; The essence in being able to work with your ADHD and transform it into your superpower instead of fighting against it is to understand your own specific brand of ADHD and how it presents itself in different situations.
ADHD coaching can be a stand-alone intervention or a component of comprehensive, multimodal treatment of ADHD. Learn more about how ADHD Coaching can make a huge impact via ADHD Coaches Organization Non-Profit and Psychlology Today.
Adult ADHD Women
It wasn't until very recently that researchers started to pay attention to how ADHD impacts women, and the myth of ADHD is male a disorder started to get challenged. The ADHD symptoms manifests differently in women and more than often they get described as personality traits, which leads to us internalizing and self-blaming, never really showing our true selves. In part this is why ADHD in women is still largely misunderstood, overlooked, and inadequately studied.
Do you relate with any of this?
If I just try harder and do everything perfectly then I won’t feel like a failure
Always apologizing for every perceived slip-up and loudly lamenting your many faults
Bills tend to be paid late and you cannot seem to stay on budget
Constantly blaming yourself for being too distracted to “catch up” with daily responsibilities
Don't invite people over because you are ashamed of the messiness
Tend to avoid any setting where you might receive criticism or have the opportunity to fail at something
