Neil Swanson, ADHD & Transformational Coach

ADHD and Transformation Coach

Neil Swanson, PCC, CACP, MA


I have come to see that my ADHD clients are so much more than their ADHD. They often initially reach out because they are having trouble at work, at home, or in other areas of their lives, and they think “their” ADHD is the problem. People with whom they work or live may have urged them to “get help” in order to save their jobs or their relationships. Each client is unique, but the general sense is, “I’m broken. Please fix me!”

I have ADHD challenges myself, so I have firsthand experience with time blindness, poor short- and long-term memory, disorganization, and many more ADHD-related traits. But I have also learned that neither I nor my clients are defined by those traits.

Those of us with ADHD need to become aware of our essential wholeness and how to use that wholeness in dealing with our ADHD challenges. I see my mission as helping myself and others grow into fuller awareness of our deep wholeness and goodness. As we grow, we find ourselves functioning more smoothly in our work, and relationships.

Each of us has access to a deep well of inner resources if we only know how to tap into it. I am finding that a combination of four elements often opens the door to those resources. The four elements are . . .  (Read more)

A client recently wrote:

“I am experiencing real growth in areas of life that have plagued me for years. ADHD has always been my most frequent source of frustration, discouragement, sense of failure, and fatigue. These coaching sessions have made me feel seen and understood, empowered for change, and have grown my overall sense of well-being and hope.”

From a grateful client:

“My wife has noticed a huge shift in the way I now often respond instead of react. I am definitely often bringing a better me to the table when it comes to my relationship with my wife and look forward to continuing to grow in this respect. [She] can’t get over the changes.”

You’ve come to the right place

that are causing problems in your life and relationships.


I’d like to briefly introduce myself here and invite you to get to know me further through the Coach Neil page on my website and by scheduling a FREE Exploratory Conversation so we can actually meet on Zoom or by phone.

I grew up in Wisconsin and went to school in the Mid-West and New York City. Then, like many folks with ADHD, I moved through a series of careers. I was a pastor, private tutor, employment consultant, and owner/manager of a remodeling company and a building consulting company.  

Radically reduce the impact of ADHD - Coaching with Neil Swanson

My family includes my wife of many decades, two adult children and their partners, and four grandchildren. One of my great joys is spending time with all of them!

After I was diagnosed with ADHD (late in life), I found a therapist and coaches who helped me enormously. As a result, I wanted to do the same for others and went back to school for coach training.

Now I am an experienced ADHD coach, holding a PCC credential from the International Coaching Federation and a CACP credential from the Professional Association for ADHD Coaches. My years of personal experience with ADHD challenges while managing my businesses and personal relationships have been good preparation for assisting my clients with the issues they bring to coaching.
