re:focus supports clients using a clear ADHD Coaching framework – devised by an experienced coach and a professional psychologist (guided by our truly amazing and perceptive clients). The aim is to help them understand, manage and optimise their ADHD, the starting point being knowledge and understanding of Executive Functions.
It also bans the use of ‘just, could, ought, must and should’. If our clients ‘just could’ they most certainly would. Although they ‘ought’ to be better at organisation they often either have no idea how to go about it or, having started, cannot maintain it.
Time passes differently for those with ADHD, be it as a result of hyperfocus, boredom or an inability to manage accurately the timing of tasks.
The client and coach together work on issues that the ADHD brain finds challenging. These can include time management, sleep hygiene, developing focus, coping with distractions and avoiding self sabotage. We also develop techniques to reduce anxiety and build confidence.
The work may also cover other aspects of the client’s life such as nutrition, fitness, social activity and recreation, as well as the physical organisation of their home and school or office environment. It is not about being told what to do; the coach and the client agree on specific goals and together work on the best way to achieve them.
THINGS NOT GOING TO PLAN?
Many adults with ADHD have found that the positive aspects of the condition such as creative thinking, an appetite for risk and the ability to react quickly under pressure have helped propel them into responsible and dynamic executive jobs. However the difficulties associated with ADHD such as procrastination, lack of attention to detail and poor time management can make this success stressful, leaving executives feeling overwhelmed, under pressure and disorganised. Breaking out of these patterns of behaviour can be extremely difficult and they can lead to strained professional and social relationships, tensions at home and poor life balance.
