 ADHD Success Coaching

Why try ADHD Coaching? Having ADHD means that you do things a little differently. It’s not surprising, then, that you would want to change your life in a way that fits your uniqueness. Many ADDers are creative, dynamic individuals who long for the freedom to express their uniqueness, work in autonomy, and have the ability to do their own thing, in their own way.

In fact, having ADHD means that you probably bring some real assets and strengths to your work, business, or personal pursuits – skills that can excel you when used effectively to your advantage. Things like creativity, enthusiasm, ability to hyper-focus, and a tolerance to risk are all skills that can move you forward no matter what your goals are. But as we know, ADHD can bring a lot of challenges as well.

How ADHD Coaching Can Help:

Success Coaching for ADHD brings with it an element of care and attention to the unique brain wiring of the ADHD adult. I will help you understand your ADHD better, learn how to overcome its challenges, and discover the unique skills and strengths that enable you to thrive with it. ADHD doesn’t have to hold you back. In fact, some of the most successful entertainers, entrepreneurs and thought-leaders in the world have it. But creating your own path to success will mean learning to work with your brain-wiring and do things the way you do them best, even if you do things a little differently.

Like sports coaching helps athletes get on top of their game, Success Coaching helps you get traction on your goals and move forward by:

  • first helping you figure out what it is you really want and be able to clearly articulate and envision your goals for success
  • helping you strategize ways to achieve those successes, by overcoming challenges and using your strengths & resources to your advantage
  • providing you with support in taking actions on your goals

Within our partnership, I will help you:

  • challenge barriers
  • create a mindset for success
  • design structures and routines that will support your creativity and freedom
  • grow and develop your strengths
  • create accountability that moves you forward

In a nutshell: I help people unravel the mysteries of ADD so they can reach their full potential and get things done!


 About Me

If you are wondering what my qualifications are, the first one is pretty transparent – I have ADHD. I also have a few family members who are very likely on that spectrum. Apart from that, I have been a Mental Health Nurse for 21 years, working in various counseling and community settings. I completed post-graduate training in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) at the Royal Holloway University of London in 2005. I have also completed coach training through ADDCA, one of the leading training institutes specifically designed for ADHD coaching.


Coaching calls are generally 55 minutes long and are charged at a rate of $100 CAD per call. Each call includes a written recap of the highlights of the coaching session and email/text reminders about the goals you are working on in between calls (if you want reminders). Typically, calls are done every 2 weeks during the beginning of our work together, and once a month once things are flowing in your life.


Like my approach to ADD? Think you might like to try coaching? Shoot me off an email and let’s chat about it. The only thing I love more than talking about ADHD (in case you didn’t notice) is listening to other people talk about their ADHD! I happen to think that an ADD life can be brilliant when you allow yourself to shine and you manage well the source of your power. If that interests you, I offer free, no-commitment consultations.
