Can an ADHD Coach Help Me Manage My Symptoms?
“I take medication and see a therapist, but I still can’t manage all of my symptoms. I’m thinking of hiring an ADHD coach. Do all adults with ADHD need so much help?”
ADHD medication helps manage some symptoms, but not all of them. Many, if not most, ADDers have problems beyond the core attention deficit disorder symptoms of hyperactivity, inattention, and impulsivity. They have difficulty with “executive function,” which is the ability to organize, manage time, and so on.
If your life feels out of control, working with an ADHD coach can help you navigate the daily challenges caused by your symptoms. Don’t think of it as a long-term arrangement. You might need only a few sessions with him, to develop some coping strategies.
