ADHD Problems I Help My ADHD Coaching Clients Learn How To Manage

Share ideas you like

Hundreds of adults with ADHD have worked with me on 6 continents since I started doing ADHD coaching over the phone in 2003 to help my fellow ADHD adults learn how to manage their ADHD related problems more effectively with less stress.

I offer potential Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder coaching clients a free 30 minute ADHD coaching sample session to discover if I can help them with their ADHD related goals or problems and for both of us to determine if we’re a good fit.

Here are some of the career, family and health and lifestyle ADHD related problems or goals to achieve that adults with ADHD asked me to help them with for their free ADHD coaching session and who have hired me as their Adult ADHD coach.
