ADHD Relationship Coaching: When One Partner Has ADHD

ID-100364950Imagine this scenario:
A spouse that does not have ADHD writes a list of specific brands of foods and cleaning products and sends his or her ADHD spouse to the supermarket. The ADHD spouse comes back with 10 bags but few things that he/she was supposed to buy and mostly the wrong brands!

Another scenario:
An ADHD spouse is supposed to clean the garage over a specific period of time. He/She spends hours in the garage but instead of cleaning and throwing away what is regarded as “trash” by the non-ADHD spouse, he/she goes through everything and, being unable to throw anything away, makes an even bigger mess than before!

Relationship coaching helps couples to successfully navigate these daily conflicts that, if left untreated, could dismantle a marriage or relationship.
