Get to Know Your ADHD Coach
I've been in a tumultuous relationship with ADHD for the past 12 years. My son was the first to be diagnosed with ADHD - and now my husband (officially diagnosed last year) and my daughter (diagnosed this year) have both received a diagnosis. Even though I do not have ADHD, I understand the cocktail of emotions of having the diagnosis of an invisible disorder, the frustration and sense of hopelessness, and the pain of not being able to help such a brilliant mind.
I refused to believe that my son’s life would be limited by his condition, and since he was diagnosed, I have been immersed in a quest to empower him to achieve his goals and dreams. I have been following experts, reading everything that landed in my hands as well as participating in seminars covering the subject of ADHD and learning challenges. Yes, for sure, I made mistakes, and I felt lonely and guilty, but having had a child with a neurobiological condition also gave me the opportunity, among other things, to question my values and beliefs.
ADHD education and diversity became top priorities in my list, and without realizing I entered in the fascinating world of coaching and the power of our mind.
Looking back, acceptance was a pivotal moment in my relationship with the disorder, and I realized now how much I wish I had known and how valuable ADHD coaching would have been right after my son’s diagnosis.
Coaching has helped me tremendously on a personal level as well as on family dynamics.
