Long-lasting and self-sustaining
Coaching builds skills and habits that can last for a lifetime. The basic adhd and academic skills of “how to plan” and “how to get things done” will work for you today at school and tomorrow in your career, home life, and community life.
Even better, adhd coaching is self-sustaining. You will learn how to experiment on yourself so that you learn what adhd-management methods work for you, and how to find and tune new methods on your own so that you can get better and better as your own, self-managing coach for a lifetime.
Here are some things that real clients have really said:
“I am SO MUCH LESS STRESSED now that I have a checklist of what I need to take to school each day. I almost never forget things. I don’t yell at myself every morning when I get to campus, like I used to.”
“I got my grades. One A. Two Bs. One C. I’m totally fine with that. We put on a great musical production and I’m happy that I had enough time to do that and pass all my classes.”
“My professor smiles at me now. I can’t believe I used to avoid talking to them. They’ve been so helpful.”
“I can’t believe how much easier things are now that I have a phone alarm for my afternoon meds. It seems so stupid that something so small can be so helpful. But if it works, I guess it isn’t stupid”
“4 out of 5 days, I stuck to my plan to work one hour BEFORE dinner each weeknight. And on 3 out of those 4 days, I remembered to put my phone away so that I’d be less tempted to look at it. This is definitely a win.”
“I’m so glad that I started the assignment on Monday instead of waiting until Wednesday. Because once I got started, I realized that the assignment was a lot longer than I had thought it would be. If I had waited until Wednesday, I would have been screwed.”
“In class, the professor told us about a couple of small revisions to the assignment for the week. I said to myself, ‘I’ll remember that.’ and then I heard your voice in my head yelling, “WRITE IT DOWN OR IT ISN”T REAL” so I wrote it down and I’m glad. Because by the time I got back to my dorm, I had totally forgotten what the professor had said.”
“I did not procrastinate! I did the thing!! I am a badass!!!”
