Three Powerful Reasons for Adults with ADHD to Hire a Well Trained Coach

Aug 6, 2008
Experts estimate 4 percent of adults in the United States, more than 8 million people, have *adhd. , The vast majority (85 percent) of adults with adhd are undiagnosed and untreated. It makes sense when you realize that most of the health care professionals in our nation don't understand adhd or know how to properly diagnose or treat it. Adhd is a diagnosable condition today, and ADDers benefit tremendously from a support team that includes a well-trained adhd coach.

A well-trained Coach can assist their adult clients with:

1) Minimizing the weaknesses of their ADHD and maximize their strengths.

Prior to coaching, individuals with AD/HD:

1) Are unaware where/how their ADD challenges manifest
2) Frequently feel misunderstood
3) Are often frustrated
4) Have poor self-esteem
5) Want to do well and please
6) Often feel broken
7) Have to struggle with certain kinds of tasks
8) Are confused and want support but don't know where to go.

While doctors and psychiatrists concern themselves with diagnosis, medications, and understanding how AD/HD occurs, we coaches focus on how it manifests in our clients lives, helping clients learn about themselves and the strengths and weaknesses of their AD/HD, then assisting them to develop strategies to minimize challenges and optimize their strengths.

2) Understand their ADHD with simple, understandable language-

A well-trained coach, addca can be instrumental in educating adult clients about their ADHD in language they will clearly understand. Once they understand it, they can learn to identify how and where there challenges will show up. Almost all clients come to a coaching session needing to learn more about their own ADHD as well as get a clear understanding of ADHD in general. This is a direct result of the misinformation disseminated by the media and a lack of well trained clinicians and health care professionals who have the knowledge and ability to clearly explain what it is and how in manifests in its different forms.

3) Accurately explaining their impairing challenges to a health care professional. A well-trained coach can be an objective non-biased observer. Adults with ADHD are notorious for being poor self-observers. They often think that what they are seeing and saying, about their daily activities, is accurate. Unfortunately, their perspective of what is really going on is usually very inaccurate.

The patient's ability to accurately communicate their symptoms is crucial for the physician or diagnostician to identify what is impairing their ability to move forward in important areas of their life.
