Hi! Unfortunately I do not have a good recommendation for an adult ADHD coach, but I am curious is your wife is taking any medications for her ADHD?

Has she felt any success with it? Concerta was life changing for me. I mean I still am very unorganized but confidence is up and I am much more productive. I definitely could see the benefits of a coach for organizational purposes 🧐

Yes she has definitely seen a difference since starting. She is in very high functioning field and to do her job and home tasks efficiently I think a coach would help very much . Thanks

Far as organizing I would look watch clutterbug on youtube she has adhd and has like 4 different types she has a website to . And maybe listen to tony Robbins unlesh the power with in it helps with my self esteem and self love also atomic habits

Try adhdcoaches.org/find-your-c.... The organization was recommended to me by someone whom I trust.

Hi, Attitude Magazine has an ADHD directory where you can click on coaches. Chadd also has a directory. These directories are very useful along with their articles and seminars. I meet some of my clients through the directories as I’m also an ADHD Coach.

I agree. Also, I know there is a coaching certification, and you can search their board to find people who are certified. Nancy Ratey is a coach and a wonderful resource in Ohio. I’ve also noticed a lot of coaches on LinkedIn.

Thanks we used the resources you mentioned and reached out to couple of coaches.

Hi There,

I am an ADHD Coach, and also have ADHD myself. I can give you a few tips on finding a good coach for your wife. I recommend trying a coach out with a free coaching session before making a decision. you want to pick the relationship that works for her, since coaching is a partnership and she has to feel comfortable and safe working with the coach before the magic can happen. Feel free to reach out if I can help.

I love the website ADDITUDE, they gave a link for life coaches, hope this helps. directory.additudemag.com/l...

Thanks. We actually used that one and Chadd and narrowed down some choices

I have been working with ASN coach Twila Gates, RN. adhd-coach-asn.com/

Excellent coaching portal, great intake program. I would be happy to go offline with any questions. I highly recommend ASN.

Thank you. Will DM you.
