ADHD Coaching with Mary Austin at ADHD Oxfordshire is an opportunity for an adult with ADHD to work one-to-one, or in a group, with a coach who is very familiar with the challenges and benefits of having ADHD.
Single sessions, perhaps with a follow-up phone call, can be enough to clarify something you are concerned about and look at possible ways forward. This would be a focused discussion rather than direct coaching and is available to family members and friends as well as adults with ADHD.
A course of an agreed number of sessions gives ongoing support and a more in-depth understanding of ADHD friendly strategies. This coaching is a partnership between you and the coach, and will usually include:
- Clarifying your goals, your strengths and your difficulties.
- Identifying the steps towards those goals.
- Learning strategies to overcome difficulties.
- identifying stumbling blocks and solutions.
