For all information, click HERE!Buckle up, my friends! In this episode I dish all of my thoughts on ADHD coaching and the coaching industry. I let you know what I think is awesome, and what I find annoying, and I tell you how I'm going to solve the problem: By training ADHD coaches myself.The coach training programs out there are notoriously not ADHD-friendly. I wanted to create a training program for the ADHD brain, and I did.The type of coaching that I practice with my clients (causal coaching) is not something that many ADHD coaches are currently being trained in, and I want to fill that void.Tune in for all the details!Testimonials from Focused ADHD Coaches:"I'm so glad that I took the leap, it was manageable, and I got so much out of it. If you want to be the kind of coach that Kristen is, it's the perfect next step." - Kyla Roma"The Focused ADHD coach training program is excellent. I feel completely confident in being able to coach anyone with ADHD on what's holding them back, or how to live the full life they're dreaming of. I feel like I can support any clients - and especially neurodivergent clients - in an affirming, supportive, motivating way that puts them in touch with their own resourcefulness." -Erin King"I have zero regrets with my choice to take the Focused ADHD Coach Training program. I honestly feel I am well prepared to coach people with and without ADHD. Kristen shared her knowledge AND experience with us in a way that supported my ADHD brain and let me learn in a way and at a pace that felt comfortable." Dylan M."This is the best investment for yourself. Even if you're unsure about being a coach full time, you will leave equipped to apply this training into your personal life and your work life." Jenni N"The philosophy of ADHDers supporting other ADHDers to succeed is at the core of why Focused works and why this coaching program appealed to me. The approach is fundamentally grounded in respect and a deep understanding of what the coachee experiences and struggles with, because the coaches-in-training have the same struggles. I don’t think most life coach training programs can offer that perspective or opportunity to consider both sides at once." Briony KiddVisit for more resourcesHang out with me on Instagram HERE.

Raise your hand if you still beat yourself up for things you did DECADES ago.

I had to pause this episode because it brought up feelings in me that I was unprepared for. I’m recently diagnosed as an adult and hearing you describe your shame for things in your younger years really made me feel so sad for my younger self

I'd really like to check out some of those resources you mentioned, but I can't seem to find them where they should be. Have they been removed since this is an old episode?

Hey Kristen! This episode blew my mind!!! Let me share a little about myself to explain why. I am 34 years old, mom of two, Norwegian nurse with a bachelor's degree, and at the moment in my 3rd year of "sickleave". I put it in the quote marks because I, and everyone else, believed I had an incapacitating depression due to several issues spanning from my childhood to my early 20s. I have received therapy, medication and a lot of help, and i can't believe that my boyfriend hasn't left yet... A couple of months ago I accidentally (and finally) persuaded my therapist to examine me for ADHD, which he categorically turned down when we first met, and I met all the criteria except for one area. I'm not visible hyperactive. So a new journey began. I started testing out stimulants a month ago and discovered that my ADHD had impacts far beyond what I suspected, and that most of my symptoms for depression probably was my ADHD. My depression is real, but also probably a symptom of undiagnosed ADHD. After a week on medication I realized that I need to learn all I can about my diagnosis so that I can get to know myself properly, and that's how I found your podcast. Now to why this exact podcast blew my mind. I have tried to help my self my whole life, feeling that something was off and thinking "why can't I function like everyone else!?". I've talked to several therapists, had family counseling, cooperated with awesome people within the child services and downloaded a ton of apps. Nothing seemed to be working, and this episode explained why! I am looking so forward to not beating myself up for not being able to establish good habits! And no, I don't know how to get to bed either 😆 Wow that was waaaay too long. Thank you for sharing so much useful knowledge and mixing it up with your own experience! I feel like I found a new friend😍
