INDIVIDUAL COACHING

Individual coaching involves slowing down and stepping back enough to carefully examine and come to understand how one is approaching one’s challenges and what other options exist. This involves identifying patterns in one’s behavior and experimenting with alternatives.

“For most people, this fundamental exploration is made much easier if they have the non-judgmental support of a coach who is genuinely curious about how they are experiencing life and how they would like their life to be different. As I ask clarifying questions, my clients often gain insights about their thoughts, reactions, behaviors, and intentions.

In the process, they often shift to an entirely new self-concept which leads to reduced anxiety and a greater sense of meaning, purpose, and peace. For most coaching clients, this process takes some time and effort. Individuals who are ready to seriously work in a sustained way on their personal development are the ones who benefit most from coaching. Therefore, I ask prospective clients to demonstrate this kind of seriousness about their personal growth by committing to a minimum of four months of intensive coaching, including the following elements:

My four-month package of intensive, transformative coaching includes

    • twelve 45-minute individual Zoom coaching sessions (three per month)
    • two or three email, text, or phone “check-ins” between sessions as needed
    • the six-week Positive Intelligence (PQ) Mental Fitness program which includes
      • sophisticated PQ phone app which includes resources, tools, and immediate feedback
      • weekly recorded video lessons
      • daily mental fitness exercises related to the weekly lessons
      • access on the app to the mental fitness “Gym”
      • connection on the app with a community of PQ participants
      • (for more about this six-week program, see positiveintelligence.com)
    • eight coach-led “PQ pod” sessions with 1-4 others in your cohort of the six-week program
    • mutual support from fellow pod members
    • PQ “Grow” program included through the end of the four-month coaching package

To explore how my coaching can support you in bringing about the change you want in your life, let’s schedule a Free Exploratory ConversationThat conversation and any coaching that follows can take place by phone or video conference. You can bring to that conversation any challenges you want to work on and goals you wish to pursue. Then, if we agree to move into a coaching partnership, you and I will find ways to leverage your strengths, talents, and passions to create new strategies, systems, and habits to address those challenges and move toward your goals and dreams. 

WHY AND HOW COACHING WORKS

Modern science has shown that neurological differences underlie many behavioral and processing challenges. Such challenges often stubbornly persist until we consciously embrace and understand them and discover our unique individual workarounds. Good ADHD coaching can play an important role in this renewal process and the development of new neural pathways (habits) in the brain.

While anxiety, depression, and addictive behavior generally require other modes of treatment in addition to coaching, when such conditions stem from unaddressed ADHD they often resist successful treatment unless the underlying ADHD is also addressed.  Even when medication (requiring a diagnosis and a doctor’s prescription) is being used as one part of an individual’s ADHD treatment, psychiatrists remind us, “Pills don’t teach skills.”  Good ADHD coaching can meet this need for skills development, improved self-awareness, and increased self-confidence.
