ADHD, Life, and Relationship Coaching


Positive Intelligence Coach Neil Swanson, PCC, CACP, MDiv

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.”

 I help ADHD-challenged individuals

transform difficult personal and work relationships

into deeply satisfying, meaningful relationships.



To thrive in these challenging times, all of us need MENTAL FITNESS.

“Mental fitness” is defined by Shirzad Chamine,

author of Positive Intelligence, as: 

“your capacity to respond to life’s challenges

with a positive rather than a negative mindset.”


My coaching includes Positive Intelligence tools to grow your

three core mental fitness muscles.

Clients find the results to be transformative! 


Your life can change radically if you are willing

to seriously engage in the coaching process.

Feedback from a recent client: 

I was really surprised by the changes we were able to make after only 12 sessions of coaching.

The stressors in my life haven’t changed, but my responses have.

I’ve learned how to treat myself with more compassion and curiosity instead of judgment and hate.

Neil, more than the many tools, I’m most thankful for the different mindset you taught me.
