AD/HD coaching is a one-on-one, non-psychotherapeutic intervention for managing the symptoms of attention deficit disorder. The coach is flexible and can work with the client in person or by telephone. A good coach is amenable to working alone or in a team with the client's psychotherapist, physician, and/or work site personnel.
It’s a relationship based on the needs and desires of the client. It is laser focused and action oriented. The coach offers the tools and knowledge that helps the client to articulate their vision, goals and desires. They use a process of inquiry to discover ways in which an individual can maximize strengths and talents, function optimally with a disability, and be responsible and accountable for actions or lack of action. ADD coaching provides clients with structure, support, skills and strategies.
Coaching is different from psychotherapy. Psychotherapy is generally long-term and deals with intra and inter-personal issues. Coaching acknowledges these issues but is more interactive. The AD/HD coach strives to help individuals learn new behaviors and strategies, which enable him to overcome areas of difficulty. The coach helps to break tasks down into manageable sized pieces, helps to translate thoughts into actions, and can act as a pillar of support and encouragement.
Coaches help clients to focus and get grounded. This process is unique for each individual.
Adults with AD/HD are often aware that they must design their environment so they will be productive and have the proper reminders built in. Trying to use people like supervisors, friends, and/or spouses as coaches crosses boundaries and often generates feelings of inadequacy and frustration. A coach can offer suggestions and reminders, provide structure and boundaries and be perceived by the client as helpful and supportive. Coaching empowers the client to create an environment that meets his own unique needs.
As a team, the coach and client work to identify the most challenges areas that are holding the client back. Then they create strategies to begin the process of overcoming these difficulties. To be successful the client agrees to become accountable for his/her time and actions, and the coach agrees to hold the client accountable. Working in particular skill areas such as time management and organization are often a client's primary concern. However, for the individual with AD/HD symptoms can become more frequent and/or severe during times of stress and fatigue. The client learns how to become more mindful of themselves. They learn to pay attention to lifestyle issues in coaching that helps them learn to promote their own well being.
In addition to working in particular skill areas, the ADD coach supports clients in examining lifestyle issues and making changes. Areas such as diet, sleep habits, exercise programs, and other aspects of self-nurturing are examined. Recommendations are made to foster health and balance in these important aspects of daily life.
Coaches also help clients with feelings of being overwhelmed. When they are super-saturated by stimuli, some individuals with AD/HD tend to "shut down." Coaches help people learn to select target areas to concentrate on leaving everything else outside the area of focus for that moment.
Individuals with AD/HD often know what changes they want to make in their lives, but don't always know were to start and how to make those changes. And most importantly, they can get distracted from their goals. The coach can be instrumental in starting an on-going process of defining long-range goals and short-term objectives, and in keeping the individual on the defined path once it becomes clear.
To be successful a client must be willing to be accountable for his time and actions. They must realize pointing a finger at their boss, spouse, or school doesn’t help solve their problems. They know it requires a commitment and day-by-day, hour-by-hour work. It’s staying committed to their own self-growth and knowing that they can make changes. Although coaching is fun, exciting and challenging, the old adage “What you put into it, is what you get out of it.” fits too.
