How can I start working with you?
All Coaching partnerships begin with a complimentary consultation. As you explore the possibilities of Coaching it is important to find a Coach that you connect with and feel comfortable with. Before beginning your coaching package, we schedule a 60-90 minute Strategy and Planning Session. If we decide to proceed with ongoing coaching, there are options under “packages.”
Do I need to have ADHD or a Diagnosis to work with you?
No, you do not need to be diagnosed with or have ADHD.
Many people seek to work with a Coach for various reasons:
- Not having a diagnosis yet, but suspect they have ADHD or someone in their personal or professional lives suspects they have ADHD.
- Having tried multiple ways to manage their ADHD independently without long-term success and are tired of not “getting ahead.”
- They are in “crisis” and overwhelmed, and at the end of their rope, they urgently want things to change in their lives.
- Reaching out as a parent or guardian.
- Have a diagnosis, but it may not be an ADHD diagnosis.
- Have “self-diagnosed” themselves by reading about ADHD online or through the experience of taking someone they love through the diagnostic process.
- They are managing their ADHD well and want to move on to their next development level using ADHD coaching as support.
What if I am not a Christian?
You do not need to be a Christian to work with me! I am committed to meeting you where you are and supporting you in the way you want.
Additionally, I am a Coach Instructor at the International ADHD Coach Training Center (iACTcenter), where I train and develop coaches worldwide. iACTcenter.com
How long does Coaching take?
The duration of coaching depends upon individual needs. Please consider at least a three-month commitment. Most of my clients work with me for 3-6 months. That time frame will allow us to establish a solid foundation, thoroughly identify your challenges and strengths, design and practice new strategies and habits, experience progress and create lasting change. My goal is to empower you, not enable you.
What happens during the Coaching?
Mostly, this is up to you. Coaching is a process of making the changes you want, and I support you in staying focused and meeting your goals. There doesn’t need to be an intense effort to create noticeable results. Set the tone that best supports you. I will follow your lead. You will choose the direction, and I will support you through the process.
How do I make payment to you?
Purchasing my services is similar to a membership fee. I ask that I receive your payment in advance of our meetings. You can pay using any major credit or debit card through the PAYPAL invoice I will send to your email.
How can I best prepare for my sessions?
This is a great question! Your coaching session is intended to be time focused on you. I ask you to have an “agenda” in mind before the meeting—something you want to work on or create change around. I will send you a “session preparation” form to journal 24 hours before each session.
What happens if I miss a session?
If you will be more than ten minutes late, please call me and let me know you are running a bit behind. If you are more than 10 minutes late or miss an appointment without notice, you may need to forfeit the session, and you will be charged for that session. Rescheduling a late or missed session will be at my discretion.
What happens if I don’t complete the coaching work?
If you don’t complete it, notice that you didn’t and let me know if you want to discuss it in our session. DO NOT be hard on yourself or feel you need to make excuses or apologize to me. I am your coach, not your teacher, therapist or parent. I am here to help you meet your goals and finally make the changes you want in your life.
What if I want to email/text you between sessions?
I encourage you to check in with me between appointments. It is my privilege to provide this extra level of service. I do ask that you save more involved coaching issues for our appointment, where we can work through them adequately. I will return all emails/texts as soon as possible.
What happens if I don’t get payment to you on time?
If your payment has not cleared by the date of our appointment, the coaching session will be cancelled, and you will be in jeopardy of forfeiting this appointment without a refund.
