Child & Teen Coaching

How Can ADHD Coaching Transform Your Child's ADHD Journey?

ADHD coaching is a transformative journey designed to nurture a supportive and understanding environment for children, particularly those diagnosed with ADHD, and their families. My approach intertwines coaching and education to lay a new groundwork of support, recognising that the dynamics within a family profoundly influence each member's growth and well-being. 

Through collaborative efforts, we cultivate their confidence, building upon their existing knowledge. Sometimes I am their teacher, facilitating learning and bridging skill gaps when needed, while also serving as a source of encouragement and support, much like a personal cheerleader.

By working collaboratively, coaching elevates the level of understanding and enhances the support system to address the unique challenges faced by the child.

Each session is tailored to primarily coach the child with ADHD, ensuring active involvement from parents or guardians to create a cohesive support network. 

Recognizing that ADHD diagnoses impact not just the child but also the parents and guardians, we extend our coaching and educational support to them. This dual approach ensures that parents and guardians are well-equipped to provide the best possible support for their child, enhancing the family's overall dynamic and facilitating a path to success for everyone involved.

"The children who need love the most will always ask for it in the most unloving ways."

Kids do well if they can!

As parents navigating the journey of supporting our children, we often encounter two contrasting perspectives: 'kids do well if they can' versus 'kids do well if they wanna.' The former perspective reminds us that our children inherently want to succeed and behave appropriately. It suggests that if our child is struggling or behaving in ways that challenge us, it's not because they lack the desire to do well, but rather because they may face obstacles hindering their potential. This viewpoint encourages us to approach our children's difficulties with empathy and understanding, seeking to uncover and address the underlying issues that may be at play. In contrast, the latter perspective implies that a child's behavior is solely driven by their motivation or willingness to comply. While motivation is undoubtedly important, this viewpoint may overlook the complex interplay of factors such as cognitive abilities, emotional regulation, and environmental influences that impact our children's behavior and performance. By embracing the 'kids do well if they can' mindset, we create a supportive and empowering environment that fosters growth, resilience, and overall well-being for our children.
