How can Head in the Clouds support my ADHD?

Seeking professional help from a qualified psychologist that specialises in ADHD can make a real difference in managing your ADHD. Here's how we can support you.

Executive Function Skills Development

 

ADHD can impact executive functioning skills like planning, organizing, and time management. ADHD coaching can equip you with practical strategies to strengthen these areas. You'll learn to create personalised systems to prioritise tasks, tackle projects in manageable steps, and minimise distractions.

Goal-Oriented Approach with Accountability

 

Goal setting can be a hurdle for those with ADHD, so coaching provides a framework to set goals. We'll work together to create an action plan, identify milestones, and establish accountability measures to keep you motivated and celebrate your progress.

Attention Regulation Techniques

 Through coaching, you'll learn evidence-based techniques to improve your concentration. This might involve identifying triggers for distraction, developing focus strategies tailored to your needs, and implementing tools to maintain attention during tasks.

Emotional Regulation and Self Esteem Enhancement

 

Living with ADHD can lead to feelings of frustration, discouragement and inadequacy, particularly in those with a later-in-life diagnosis. Working with a psychologist can foster self-compassion, build confidence, and help you navigate life's challenges with a positive outlook.

What to expect at your first ADHD Coaching session.

We know that initiating that first session of ADHD coaching takes strength and vulnerability. It's often a step taken after months or even years of frustration or despair. It's normal to feel hopeful and excited but also scared or intimidated.

Here's what you can expect in your first session.

 

Your history

We'll discuss your history with ADHD and work together to identify what you most need help with. This could be broader issues like time management or self confidence, or it might be something specific like working towards a career goal.
