A diagnosis of ADHD might feel overwhelming and scary at first. But there are many things that you can do to benefit and improve your quality of life. One of those things is learning about what ADHD is and what it is not, and also identifying how it is impacting your life so that you can better advocate for yourself.
The goal of ADHD coaching is to help you to embrace and accept yourself for who you are and what makes you as an individual so special. You will also become equipped with the practical skills to handle everyday tasks and challenges. I look forward to helping you embrace being different and accepting yourself for who you are and what makes you as an individual so special.
A chronic or long-term illness means having to adjust to the demands of the illness and the therapy used to treat the condition. There may be additional stresses, since chronic illness might change the way you live, see yourself and relate to others.
