Client Feedback 

Mirka is more than just a highly professional coach; she's a guiding force in my journey of personal and professional growth. Her exceptional listening skills, coupled with a deep understanding of my challenges, have created a coaching experience that goes beyond the surface. Mirka doesn't just accept my ways of thinking; she challenges them, providing valuable insights that have not only enhanced my professional skills but also fostered personal development. Whether we're tackling issues related to leadership or navigating the intricacies of day-to-day work, Mirka and I consistently find ways to identify and move forward, making each coaching session a transformative step on my journey.

I’ve always been a big fan of personal development, but navigating life with ADHD brought unique challenges to my professional and personal journey. Being coached by Mirka was a game-changer for me, unlocking hidden potentials that I didn't realize I had. Mirka is not just a coach; she's a kind, down-to-earth, amazingly talented, and empathetic individual who truly understands the nuances of ADHD. Her excellent listening skills and caring nature make the coaching sessions incredibly impactful. Living with ADHD, I've learned a lot about myself through Mirka's insightful questions that reached deep into my conscious and unconscious mind. Her support became even more crucial during a difficult period when I lost my father and my job simultaneously. Mirka wasn't just a coach; she became a friend, offering genuine support and guidance when I needed it the most. I am incredibly proud to say that having Mirka in my life has not only helped me navigate the challenges of ADHD but has also made me a better person overall. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there for me. I am forever grateful for the unique understanding you bring to coaching and the amazing work you do.

Mirka helps me with school stuff and gives me cool strategies for homework and time management. It's not just about grades; it's about feeling more confident.

Mirka gets that having ADHD is more than just school. She talks with me about everything, like handling distractions and dealing with stress. It's like having a coach who's also a friend.

I didn't know what coaching would be like, but it's way cooler than I thought. Mirka is helping me see what I can do. 

I've come to understand that 'listening' is a multifaceted skill, especially for someone navigating the challenges of ADHD. Many of us might hear words, but the act of truly listening, of processing and understanding from the speaker's perspective, is an art. Mirka, through her coaching, not only conveyed this concept but demonstrated it effortlessly. Mirka's deep, empathetic listening is a transformative experience. She goes beyond merely hearing words; she delves into the nuances and complexities that someone with ADHD might struggle to organize in their mind. Mirka doesn't just listen—she comprehends and translates these complexities into words, making sense of thoughts that may be challenging to express. It's a rare and invaluable skill, one that goes beyond the conventional understanding of listening. Mirka's ability to truly connect through her listening has been a wonderful asset in my personal and professional journey.

  • What happens in a coaching session?
    The majority of my coaching is done over video conference, Zoom. This is an efficient and productive method that enable my clients to take advantage of coaching from the comfort of their home or office. Each coaching relationship begins with an intake session (1.5 hours) welcoming you to the coaching experience. During this session we will focus on learning as much as we can about you, what your strengths are, where you have challenges, review the coaching agreement, and decide how we will work together. We'll discuss any questions you may have and identify initial goals for our coaching relationship. During subsequent sessions (50 min long) we will work toward your goals. We will focus on want you want to change, what is getting in your way, how you can utilise your strengths and we will develop practical strategies and tools to help you succeed. Often the clients are assigned some work to be done between sessions, this could be working on a new routine, system or implement some of the practical tools. This work is necessary to move you towards the life you want. Coaching is not just what happens during the sessions; it is the work that gets done in the space between sessions.
  • How long do clients typically work with a coach?
    The duration of the coaching relationship is tailored to meet the unique needs and goals of each client. Recognizing that meaningful change requires time, we encourage clients to commit to an initial three to six months of coaching. My primary aim is to help clients achieve their goals efficiently while establishing a solid foundation for sustained success. We will determine the number of coaching sessions and the session interval (weekly, biweekly, etc.) during the Intake Session. Adults For adults, it is typically recommended to commit to an initial 8-12 sessions. At that point, the coaching relationship can be reassessed for potential extension or conclusion. Children/Young Adults In the case of children or young adults facing challenges related to executive function or social skills, we often suggest an initial commitment of 12 weekly sessions. Occasionally students may continue with coaching for the entire school year or longer.
  • My child (or I) do not have a diagnosis yet, would it still be of benefit to work with a coach?
    Absolutely! Whether or not a diagnosis is in place, coaching can still provide significant benefits. Whether you're seeking assistance before or after a formal diagnosis, Mirka's expertise can empower you to overcome challenges and thrive.
  • How is child, young adult coaching different from adult coaching?
    Adults When coaching adults, the individual establishes the goals for our collaborative efforts, and regular sessions are conducted to achieve their desired outcomes. Children For coaching children below the age of 18, goals are set by the parents in consultation with the child's input. Our approach often involves working with both the child and one or both parents to reach the desired objectives. Sessions may include the parent alongside the child or have a separate meeting at the conclusion of each session or on an agreed-upon schedule (e.g., monthly or bi-weekly). The structure is collaboratively created by the parent and coach, taking into account the child's age, temperament, and desired outcomes. Parents play a crucial role in supporting the child between sessions as they experiment with new ways of thinking, being, and doing, making them an integral part of the success team. Young Adults In the case of coaching young adults (ages 18-25) supported by parents, sessions are conducted separately from the parents. Confidentiality agreements are discussed in advance with both the parents and the young adult.
  • How is coaching different from therapy?
    ADHD coaching and therapy serve distinct purposes. Think of it like building a house: therapy addresses the emotional foundation, delving into past experiences and addressing deeper issues, much like the groundwork for a stable structure. On the other hand, ADHD coaching is like constructing the rooms and arranging furniture, focusing on practical strategies, skill-building, and goal-setting to enhance daily functioning. While therapy explores the "why," coaching tackles the "how," providing actionable tools to navigate the challenges of ADHD. Together, they form a comprehensive approach to personal growth and well-being.
  • What are your Qualifications?
    Training Professional ADHD & Family Training, ADD Coach Academy Co-Active Coach Training, Co-Active Training Institute Executive Coaching Diploma, Behavioural Science, Irish Management Institute NLP - Neuro-Lingustic Programming Practitioner & NLP Master Practitioner Certification Credentials/Accreditations with ADDCA: ADHD Coach with ICF: Associate Certified Coach (ACC) with CTI: Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) with EMCC: Senior Practitioner *Accreditations mean that a Coach has been observed while coaching and the credentialed body (ICF, EMCC) has certified that they are coaching to a high standard, in line with coaching guidelines and in adherence to ethics.
  • What makes you different from other coaches?
    What distinguishes me is a personalised and holistic approach to coaching. I specialise in ADHD coaching, bringing a deep understanding of its complexities. My coaching style is not just about setting goals; it's about tailored strategies and practical tools to navigate challenges unique to ADHD. With a commitment to clear communication and active listening, I create a non-judgmental space where clients feel understood and empowered. My goal is not just to coach but to guide individuals and families toward lasting positive change, fostering personal growth and improved well-being. I am a mother of a teenage boy living with ADHD. I have witnessed the daily struggles within my own household and within the community. Everyone is good at some things and not good at others. Not just people with ADHD. Most people with ADHD judge themselves harshly and engage in negative self-talk. My mission is to help people shift away from the negative perspective to open, appreciative and curious mindset, and identify their unique strengths. Empower them to embrace their true selves and support them to fearlessly chart their unique paths of life. What sets me apart is my dedication to professionalism and formal training in specific coaching skills. While anyone can claim to be a coach, my commitment to acquiring qualifications distinguishes me. I have invested time in becoming trained and qualified, especially in coaching individuals with ADHD. This ensures a higher standard of service and a more effective approach to supporting personal growth and positive change.
  • Do you carry out assessments/diagnosis?
