The ADHD Clergy Coach Neil Swanson
Coaching Spiritual Leaders
If you struggle with ADHD challenges, serving effectively and efficiently as a spiritual leader can feel, at times, almost impossible.
I know. I’ve been there.
When I was a parish minister (and for years after leaving that ministry), I did not understand my ADHD brain wiring or realize that there are satisfying and productive ways to work with my ADHD.
My own experiences with the challenges of faith and doubt and with the joys and frustrations of working in the church have contributed to my empathy and compassion for you and other ministers. I would enjoy helping you, as a spiritual leader, to grow in self-awareness and clarity about your strengths and your calling. My own ever-deepening spirituality allows me to honor and respect whatever spiritual perspectives and practices you find meaningful.
Before becoming a client with Neil, I looked at my ADD as a weakness. Coaching has allowed me to see myself in a new light. This new light allows me to focus on my innate strengths and abilities, as I move forward with a stronger sense of self. The impact and understanding of my life that I have gained from working with Neil has been invaluable.
As a trained and experienced coach, I have learned to ask powerful questions that can help you rapidly gain clarity about who you are and what is possible for you. I will seek to provide you with a safe, supportive space in which you can discover for yourself the best solutions to your challenges. My nonjudgmental, open-minded listening and my partnering with you will facilitate your moving quickly to the genuine, honest explorations that can be so healing and clarifying for anyone seeking a better way of functioning.
Just like professional counseling, professional coaching includes an assurance of confidentiality. Like other spiritual leaders, you may find it extremely helpful to be able to talk with a coach who is neither part of your congregation nor part of your church hierarchy. This valuable opportunity to explore your growing edges in complete candor and confidentiality can bring forth new perspectives, resulting in your renewed self-confidence, enthusiasm, and faith.
