Does Your ADHD Leave You Feeling
Constantly Overwhelmed and Misunderstood?


Do you procrastinate and put things off, causing you to run around like crazy to finish projects on time? 

Do you feel like your work has to be perfect, causing you to avoid tasks entirely so you don’t do it “wrong.” 

Have you begun to give up completely, questioning whether or not you are capable of succeeding at all.
 

If these scenarios sound familiar, ADHD coaching can help.

When you struggle with ADHD it can be difficult to prioritize anything in your life. 

You may feel like everything has the same level of importance and urgency, and you quickly become overwhelmed as your to-do list grows. Perhaps you find yourself looking at the big picture, unable to focus when there are too many details. The challenges you face may lead you to think that something is wrong with you or that you are broken.
 
 
 

Nowadays, we are all bombarded with information and distractions throughout our day. If you are struggling with ADHD, you likely feel this pressure much more acutely, to the point where stress may become unmanageable. You may be living a stressful life from the moment you wake up until the moment you fall asleep. You may find that you struggle to complete anything at all.


Many People Don’t Receive An ADHD Diagnosis Until They Are Adults


Picture

ADHD coaching can help! When you receive an ADHD diagnosis, you can begin learning to use your strengths in a more efficient way, develop strategies to take care of yourself and stop feeling so overwhelmed!

Many individuals feel a sense of relief when they first receive their ADHD diagnosis. Suddenly there is an explanation for manny of the challenges they have been facing all their lives – like struggling to hold on to a job, changing partners or underachieving. They realize they are not lazy or stupid. After receiving an ADHD diagnosis, however, many individuals also go through a mourning period. It’s not uncommon to wonder what life could have been like had they received this diagnosis earlier on.


ADHD Coaching Can Help You Feel Happy and Successful In Spite of Your Challenges


With adult ADHD coaching, it is possible to work around the challenges you face. I use a strength-based approach to my coaching, meaning I help you identify your natural talents and learn to work around your challenges. ADHD affects the executive function of the brain, which can create challenges in organization, time management, follow-through and more. Adult ADHD coaching is goal-oriented and offers the structure and accountability needed to make positive changes.

 

Our society pushes for everyone to overcome their weaknesses, but that isn’t how real people work. Many of the difficulties individuals with ADHD face are a result of how their brain is wired, not a lack of effort or ability. Once you understand how you function, ADHD coaching can help you acquire the tools to leverage your strengths rather than constantly struggling against your weaknesses.

I recognize that your strengths, goals and challenges are unique to you, which is why I tailor my adult coaching methods to meet your specific needs. I use a multi-disciplinary, multi-cultural approach to help facilitate communication between you, myself and all of the professionals involved in your diagnosis and treatment (psychiatrists, therapists, etc.) I strongly believe that it is important for everyone to work collectively as you develop the skills and techniques to meet your personal needs and goals in a safe and non-judgmental environment.

But You May Still Have Questions About Adult ADHD Coaching…


I’ve been this way my whole life… is it too late for me to get help?
You may feel as though you have gone your entire life without ever truly being understood. Research shows that the brain has neuroplasticity; therefore, it is always capable of changing and developing. In my extensive professional experience in adult ADHD coaching, I have seen that change is always possible.

 

How long should I expect to work with you?
The amount of time it takes for you to benefit from adult ADHD coaching depends on your specific situation. I have some clients who come in for one consultation session, some who come in for four sessions and others who come for six months or more. ADHD is only one aspect of your life, which is why we work with the whole person in adult coaching. Coaching is very action-oriented, and our success depends on how much time and effort you are willing to put into your coaching program. I am dedicated to your personal growth and development, but the results do not only depend only on me. Each person is different, has different needs and is in a different place in their lives. We will work together to determine the best approach for your situation.
 I don’t think I need ADHD coaching. I just need to work harder.
People with ADHD have executive functioning challenges. To make changes, it is not a matter of working harder. Positive change happens when you develop the tools to work with the way your brain is naturally wired. However, you have to be prepared for change, and behavioral shifts won’t happen overnight. In order for change to be lasting and meaningful, you need to build new habits. You can develop new skills and techniques in order to develop these new behaviors.

Client Testimonials

"“Mrs. Roya is so nice and has helped me to focus and pay attention at home and at school. I think everybody needs Mrs. Roya if they need help focusing!” - J.D. (8 years old)

"After I discovered I have ADHD, Roya Kravetz started coaching me through Skype since I was living in Europe. She was very good and helped me structure my life, set goals and kept me accountable. She was always available if I needed advice or motivation. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for an ADHD Coach." - P.F.

"Dear Roya, I really want to acknowledge that you gave me the first step on finding out that I was working to cover my weaknesses which I stop doing, today I am working with getting stronger with my natural strengths and that is the reason why I am very grateful with you. To our success." - L.A.

"My son is a client of Roya . He was diagnosed with ADHD/ADD. I can honestly say throughout the period of time, in which my son have been going to Roya, I have seen great improvement with my son. I can personally say that Roya has made a positive impact in my son’s life and I would highly recommend Roya as a Coach." - Parent of client

"ADHD is powerful. Roya taught my wife and I how not to be powerless and helpless. She introduced practical and concrete tools for working WITH the ADHD as a couple and as a family. This morning I became overwhelmed by whining kids. I got angry at my wife. We both got upset. Then, We both realized what was happening. My ADHD had us in the same old dance. Something powerful happened. I took a deep breath, asked for some space, went in the other room. My wife supported my need for space. After I calmed down I apologized to my wife and kids for my role. My wife also apologized for her role. I told them I loved them and thanked them for their patience. And the day went on and my wife and I laughed at the ADHD. Our work with Roya has changed our lives. We are empowered and educated. Most importantly Roya makes it clear that the credit for our progress is not so much about her role, as it is about our willingness to "do things differently." My wife and I feel ownership for our progress independent of the skills and knowledge Roya has shared. She helped us realize that as powerful as ADHD can be, it can't touch the power of our love when we are truly committed to living a meaningful life together. Thank you Roya." - C.O.

"When choosing individuals that will be working with our children, we prefer people who are loving, accepting, understanding and caring. Roya has all of these qualities. She is a genuine woman who listens, offers advice, opinions and possible solutions. She speaks with you and your child not at you or above you. She easily identifies with issues of concern and is sensitive to your needs and desires. Roya is quite educated in her field and has much to offer to children and parents alike. She will be your child’s advocate and fan. We highly recommend Roya and are thankful that we had the opportunity to work with her." - S.R.

“I was in the middle of a family crisis when I met Roya. I was a 23 years old girl and I came from a country, Iran, which does not recognize ADHD as a disability of adults, everyone thinks it is a made up thing to use the drug (Ritalin!). I had to fight to get even medication but medication does not change your life if you don’t know how to live with ADHD. Everything changed gradually. Roya made it cIear that I must change my environment and I must not wait for others to give me what I deserve to have. On those days I really had this belief that I am a loser and all of my dreams are just a Joke. I was even ashamed of thinking about my dreams! Roya taught me to plan and set goals, and how to take control of my life. She has a really nice smile which is so encouraging. You know no matter what happens, she always has something amazing to teach you to solve your problem and she will be by your side. She showed me the path and taught me the rules of the game of life. When you have ADHD every day is hard and everything can go wrong, and be unbearable. Once she told me “You have learned all of your life to behave like others and you think it is the only way to be successful but you have a different mind so you need a different path. You are neither weak nor abnormal. You must make peace with your brain and accept your brain is also normal, it is only different so try not to repeat wrong old ways again since no matter how hard you try you will not gain anything.

Recently, I have received an Admission letter from a Canadian University with full Scholarship to study with a professor I always wanted and in a subject which I love. If you had told me last year that I can achieve this, I would not believe you! Although I am still learning from Roya, there is one key thing I appreciate most – that is if I know HOW to do something I can achieve it. We do not know how to approach different problems in life and if you or the ones you love have ADHD and really want to change your life, I believe Coach Roya can help you and teach you HOW. I would say she is truly a life saver, just trust her and be patient. As I tell her, she is my angel.”
– Mina M.

"Within 5 minutes of my first coaching session with Roya, 47 years of shame and embarrassment began to fade away. Speaking with her reassured me that my lifelong doubts, fears and limitations about who I was and what I could aspire to become were about to change. With Roya's help, this weight was no longer a nameless shapeless thing, and as soon as I could see it, define it, observe it I realized I could change it. I no longer felt that I was struggling alone, and this helped me share with my family, friends and supporters. I could now take simple steps to work with it and not against it. I could let go of trying to hammer myself into a shape that was not suited to me, and instead, focus on my strengths and allow this "condition" to become an asset. Roya is a gentle soul with a strong determination to help, and her solid convictions made it easy for me to see that I could overcome the illusion of limitations, which were held in place from a lifetime of measuring myself against the standards of others." - J.H.
