Adult ADHD

Attention, Time, Energy Struggles: ADHD?

chaos. many thoughts swirling.

A Chaotic Mind

Anything familiar here? You’re distractible. Not getting enough done – as much as you think you could. Chaotic days. Organization and productivity: one big struggle.

Trouble starting tasks, knowing your priorities, and working the plan when you have it. Sticking with the high priorities.

Transitioning: into Mondays, in and out of tasks, getting to work or appointments on time.

Your mind is way too busy, filled up with so many things. You’re forgetful and can’t always rely on your working memory.

Your spouse is frustrated with your seeming lack of caring or responsibility.

You’re self-employed and don’t feel like you’re living up to your potential, so you’re nervous the business may suffer. Or you work in a company and your manager doesn’t understand how you think or what you need, so you’re not on the same page.

There is hope!

Adult ADHD: organize your path forward

Hope: Around the Corner

Many people call and have an official ADHD diagnosis by a neuropsychologist. Medication may or may not be part of the equation; more and more people are trying better self-care and exercise first. So we start wherever you are.

Other people call and experience similar struggles and symptoms I listed above but may or may not have ADHD.

Struggles include: midlife and later life stresses of the sandwich generation, a step up to a management role at work, managing a household with a growing family, several significant life changes over a short period of time (a move, a death, an accident, job change, grandparent/parenthood), an anxiety disorder. And there’s the known effects as women move through perio/menopause as well as aging.

Taking a non-traditional, creative strategies approach works well here, too. So we start wherever you are.

 Adult ADHD Organizing & Personal Productivity Coaching: What does it take?

Adult ADHD Organizing & Coaching - New Perspectives

New Ways of Looking at Things- York, Maine. (c) Sue West.

  • Openness on your part to try new ways.
  • Practice with new strategies or behaviors.
  • Notice what gets in the way, so you can learn from it.
  • Pay attention to what works, so you can develop you go-to strategies that you know will work again and again.
  • Personal accountability or a desire to have more once you know what works for you.

You’ll develop your own best practices to organize your work, life, yourself, your time and your mind.

You’ll notice less judgment of yourself or by others, and more successes, small and large.

We start here.

optins for working togetherA no charge, intro call: problems, goals or results, and whether we think we could work together well. If that goes well, I’ll send my”Working Together” document [payment, confidentiality, goals, hours, etc.]. And also my set of “reflection” questions to organize your needs and thoughts for our first regular meeting.

Options for meetings:

  • Month-to-month:
    • $275 for 2 hours of time each month;
    • Email support in between calls, to stay connected on your goals.
    • This can be 2, one-hour calls for the month or weekly ½ hour calls, depending on your goals for the work together.
  • 3 month package:
    • $800, payable half up front, and remainder at the half-way point. Total of 6 hours, over 3 months.
    • Email support in between calls, to stay connected on your goals.
    • Useful if you want a concrete deadline for your goal and the accountability.
  • Ongoing/maintenance or tapering off coaching: After your significant work is accomplished and habits are stabilized, you may want to continue.
    • People continue if: they find that a coach is a useful outside observer in their court all the time; are verbal processors; are concerned based on past history so they need a safety net for a short while; or have new goals.
    • You design what works: the same schedule; half the number of monthly sessions for 3-6 months or once a month.
  • Professional fees are good for the calendar year.

At our meetings.

(1) We work to understand what’s happening: the problems, frustrations, and day-to-day effects (from reflection questions).  (2) Narrow in on a goal or result for the whole partnership and for each day’s meeting. (3) Work out strategies, routines, habits, and tools that work for your way of thinking. (4) Decide what accountability looks like. Figure out what can be done in between meetings to move things forward. (5) Learn from what works and also what does not work as we intended.  (6) Identify support, self-care, people, resources – ways for you to continue, and especially with ADHD to remember to use your best strategies. (7) Continue until the package of time is over or one of us says “I think we’re done on this goal. We did it!”
