What is an ADHD Coach?

ADHD is a condition that affects millions of people, including many for whom it wasn’t diagnosed until adulthood, or sometimes even not at all. The ADHD brain works differently and there are both strengths and challenges associated with this. In a neurotypical world, this can be a tremendous struggle.

With the right support and tools though, anyone can live their best life with an ADHD diagnosis. This is where ADHD Coaching can help.

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a condition that causes inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. It can make it difficult to stay focused on tasks and maintain good habits.

ADHD Coaching helps clients with it to improve their lives by helping them become more effective and productive as an individual.

What issues do ADHD Coaches help with?

ADHD coaching can help you with a number of things such as improving your productivity by teaching you how to manage your time more effectively.

Coaches work together with clients to develop strategies and plans that will get them moving in the right direction. Having an ADHD coach can help you set goals and stay on track as you progress towards those goals.

It can also be a place to vent when frustrations arise, which helps keep motivation up during setbacks and obstacles. A coach may be able to give advice on topics such as organisation, time management or productivity skills that might otherwise go ignored or overlooked by someone who does not have the proper training in these areas.

ADHD coaching services cover a broad range of areas, including (but not limited to):
  • Working with children, young adults & adolescents, and adults with ADHD
  • ADHD Support & resources for parents, teachers & educators
  • Working alongside your licensed mental health professional (e.g. GP, paediatrician, psychologist etc.)
  • Providing practical strategies and tools to support your child, teen or loved one with ADHD
  • How to thrive in a neurotypical world
  • Develop Executive Functioning skills
  • Goal setting and working towards your personal goals
  • Planning, organisation and time management
  • Emotional regulation
  • Dealing with associated anxiety and stress
  • Building social skills, self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Helping you to find and develop your unique strengths, skills and passions
  • Help you to focus on what is important and better manage your priorities & energy
  • ADHD education to gain a clear understanding of yourself covering topics such as ADHD symptoms, strategies, medication, nutrition, goal setting, self-efficacy, psychological issues, substance abuse, and other treatments that you could explore for your ADHD

It’s important to note that while an ADHD coach can provide tremendous value, they are not a replacement for qualified health professionals when required. ADHD often requires a multidisciplinary approach which may also involve your GP, psychologists or psychiatrist, paediatrician, and so on.

How does ADHD Coaching work?

An ADHD Coaching session can take many different forms. From online courses and programs, and individual coaching sessions, to group sessions, conducted either face to face, over the phone or on the internet. Platforms such as Zoom & Skype have made coaching fully accessible, regardless of your location.

The coaching process will vary depending on your individual needs and the services offered by the coach. Here are some things you can typically expect:

Many ADHD coaches offer a complimentary discovery call or trial coaching session. The purpose of which is to allow you both to discover if the ADHD coaching services are right for you, and that you’re a good fit for each other without any financial risk. After your first coaching session, subsequent ones usually last somewhere between 45 to 90 minutes each, the frequency of which will again, depend on your needs.

Initially, you will often go over your goals and get clear on your desired outcomes through the use of the coach’s active listing skills and quality questions. Sometimes also through the use of tools such as personality quizzes, assessments, and exercises.

The data gathered will help to establish where you are now, and the steps required to bridge the gap and get you to where you want to be.

You may also be asked to do some work on your own in between sessions (often called homework). These will generally consist of specific tasks relevant to your needs to move you closer to your goals and the results you want.

Committing to these tasks with your coach holds you accountable to them, greatly increasing your chances of following through. Another reason why those who work with a coach make much more progress than those who go it alone.

How to get the most out of working with an ADHD Coach?

ADHD Coaching is an investment of both your time and money so it’s vital that you know how to get the most out of it. Here are our top tips:

Be prepared

Make your ADHD coaching sessions a priority by giving them the time and space needed to come to each session fully prepared and focused. Get specific on what you need to work on, do any “homework” assigned to you in between each session and make sure you remove any possible distractions.

It’s also ideal to allow enough time before and after each session. Beforehand, to get in an optimal mindset, and afterwards, to jot down any notes and do some self-reflection.

Be open

If you think you’ve already tried everything, or are closed off to change and new ideas, then to be completely frank, you won’t get much out of ADHD coaching. You need to be “coachable”; open to different perspectives and willing to take them on board.

Be prepared to have your beliefs and comfort zones challenged and trust in the process that it will be worth it.

Be realistic

It won’t happen overnight but it will happen (thanks Pantene!) Have realistic expectations and don’t expect to be transformed overnight. ADHD coaching can provide you with awesome insights and tools, but change, and progress takes time.

Be vulnerable

Make no mistake, contrary to what many believe being vulnerable is not a weakness, it’s a strength. One that will dramatically improve the impact of your sessions. You need to be completely open and honest with your coach (and in turn yourself!).

This will facilitate getting to the root of your issues faster, and foster more meaningful results.

Do the work

If you’re given “homework” or tasks to complete in between sessions, do them! This is where the magic happens. Don’t expect your ADHD coach to do everything for you, that isn’t what coaching is about.

Your ADHD Coach is there to be your guide, but it’s you that needs to do the work… and you reap what you sew.

woman Journaling

Keep a journal

Not essential but highly recommended. In addition to taking some notes during the session, take some time afterwards to make sure you get everything important down and use the journal to help with some self-reflection to deepen what you have learned.

Take massive action

Knowledge on its own isn’t enough to affect change. Only in implementing what you have learned is where real transformation takes place. Listening and taking notes are important, but to fast-track your progress, you must apply what you have learned to your daily life.

For example, how do you best build confidence in riding a bike? Simply listening to the feedback on what to do and not to do? Or taking that information and putting it into action?

Sure, this may result in you falling off, but that too is the only way to learn and get better at it!

Most importantly

Embrace the journey and enjoy the ride!

How to find the right ADHD Coach for you?

In order for all of the above to happen, it’s vital that you find an ADHD coach with whom you have trust and rapport, and whose approach resonates with you. We can help with that too. Here are some more factors to keep in mind when choosing an ADHD coach:

Approach and Personality

Not all coaches approach the same problem in the same way, which is great because each individual will respond differently to varying styles. Similar to a fitness coach, some people would be put off by a “drill sergeant” type approach, whereas others respond to it really well.

As such you need to find an ADHD coach who can effectively work with your personality type, communication style, and approach to learning. Essentially, this means someone you can trust, build rapport with and whose approach is in line with how you prefer to work, learn and grow. This is particularly important if you are investing in ADHD coaching services as a parent for your child. They too need to be able to feel comfortable and establish rapport in order to get the most out of it.


You can expect to find ADHD coaches with different focuses who can offer you various things. Some offer a general service but many of them choose to specialise in some way. For example, some will work with very specific demographics, such as adult women with ADHD.

Essentially, you might be looking for an ADHD coach with a particular area of expertise, but you could equally benefit from working with someone who has a wider scope. Again, it depends on you and your needs.

Qualifications & Memberships

Currently, coaching is an unregulated industry in that there are no standard curricula. Some ADHD coach training programs and courses offer certifications (such as the international coach federation or ICF) but they come with varying levels of criteria.

This criterion does help ensure a certain standard of knowledge, skills, expertise and experience. The caveat though is the “varying levels of criteria”, vary a lot.

For example, some certifications are given after attending a 1-day course, others require years of study. If finding a professional certified coach with formal training is important to you, take a look into what their certifications and/or memberships actually entail.

Also keep in mind that if someone you’re thinking about working with isn’t a credentialed ADHD coach, or is not part of an ADHD professional association, this shouldn’t be a deal breaker. Some ADHD coaches have done years of study and have a wealth of experience and effective coaching skills, but for a number of varying reasons, just don’t have a piece of paper to go with it.

In these cases, I suggest paying close attention to other important factors such as the results they get. If they have case studies, great! Otherwise, testimonials and reviews are a great source of credibility and social proof.


As mentioned above, testimonials and reviews are a great source of credibility and social proof. You can usually find them on their website, Facebook page, Google My Busines listing or within their listing page on directory sites like this one.

If a coach doesn’t have any reviews yet, that can be for a number of reasons; such as they’re relatively new (doesn’t mean they can’t offer massive value though!). Or, they’ve been around for a while but struggle to get reviews from their clients. That’s the funny thing about reviews. Even the most satisfied customer can forget, or not bother to leave one (we get it, life is busy!).

It’s a real shame though, as reviews are a vital element in contributing to the success of a coaching business (or any business for that matter!)…. so when you do find a great ADHD coach, please leave them a review!

You’re not only supporting them but helping to connect other people with their valuable services also.

Blog Posts and Articles

Like qualifications, these aren’t always essential, but you can learn a lot about a coach by what they blog about. Their personality, knowledge, skills, and experience.

If they have a blog section on their website or share articles online, take the time to have a read-through to see if the content resonates… It’s also a great excuse to grab a cuppa and have some “you time”.
