ADHD means …
Finding out you have ADHD gives you an answer while raising a lot of questions. We get you.
Feeling frustrated at not being able to hold my attention where it needs to be. Getting lost for hours in distractions and feeling like I’ve wasted the day.
Feeling like I am on a small emotional rollercoaster. Reacting to everything that happens and feeling way to much about it. Often getting upset when later I realise there was nothing to get upset about!
Getting overwhelmed when things get complicated. Finding it hard or even uncomfortable to hold ideas in mind and sort them into priorities. Losing track of procedures or instructions in my head. Feeling stupid or incompetent when I know I am not.
Feeling that motivation is something that just comes out of the blue. Either I like something or not, and if not it will be really hard to find the motivation to do it. Except when that thing becomes a threat. Then I can usually act but only when it is really close in time.
Finding time as something inconsistent. Sometimes it rushes past, others it drags but it never feels consistent. I loose track of it consistently and am often running late despite my best plans.
Feeling frustrated that despite my best intentions, things often don’t turn out the way I planned. Then I am always apologising for something altho I don’t feel I am in control of.
Sometimes my partner and I are fantastic, but other times I feel their frustration with me. I forget important things and more and more my partner feels more like a parent than my lover. I know I am letting them down and it looks like I don’t care, but I do.
ANXIOUS AND OUT OF CONTROL
I want to be in control. I am so tired of feeling lost or out of control. I am often anxious and want to take back control of my life. Not just today, but for my future.
I know I can have a better life than this. I am smarter, stronger and more capable that what others may think I am. I have potential I haven’t started to meet yet – if I could just figure out how.
what our clients say
*All names, have been altered for confidentiality but are true and authentic testimonials
I was feeling “stuck” and overwhelmed at work and in life generally. Monica to be easy to talk to, practical, caring and down-to-earth. With unique insight into how ADHD impacts on executive function and helped me better understand the challenges I was dealing with. Through our sessions I developed strategies for managing things better at work, and overcame a life-long habit of arriving late each morning. Thank you!
After more than 40 years of difficulties finding my direction and maintaining focus, I was referred to Jon. He quickly identified strong indicators of attention deficit and has helped me understand why I have struggled and provided practical advice on how I can adapt my behaviour and environment to function more effectively. To put it simply, when I first met Jon I was single, living alone in a rental property and working two part-time jobs that did not bring me joy. Now I have a loving partner and we are one week away from moving into our own home. We are also expecting our first child. In addition, I have a full time job and am studying towards a Masters. I will be forever grateful for Jon’s wisdom and practical advice.

With their coaching, I am learning the skills and strategies that are enabling me to not just succeed in my studies (for the first time ever!), but also have greater confidence in myself while working.
Thanks for reminding me & thanks for EVERYTHING you have done to help me become a better man this year – I am so grateful that my doctor put us on to you – it has been a LIFE CHANGER !!!!!
