Autism and ADHD Coaching


Coaching facilitates another person’s learning, development, well-being and performance for both their professional and personal lives. Coaching increases self-awareness and enables people to find their own solutions, develop skills, and change unhelpful attitudes and behaviours. We recognise that coaching adults or young people with ADHD and/or autism requires specific skills and experience.

People with autism and/or ADHD face a number of difficulties in their day to day lives.  Coaching can work well for many of these difficulties, including:

  • Communication
  • Social skills
  • Relationships – personal and professional
  • Managing sensory sensitivities
  • Coping with educational or work environments
  • Organisational skills
  • Managing transitions and change
  • Managing difficult emotions
  • Developing impulse control
  • Finding clarity on an issue
  • Becoming more self-aware
  • Time management
  • Improving sleep
  • Reducing anxiety
  • Challenging limiting thought patterns and unhelpful habitual behaviour
  • Goal setting and motivation

And so much more.
