Navigating ADHD Coaching vs Therapy.
In this episode, the tables have turned as Jodi Green interviews me, discussing some of the differences between coaching and therapy.
- Coaching vs. Therapy: We discuss the distinctions between coaching and therapy in supporting folk with ADHD. We explore the differences and similarities
- Impact on Relationships: Addressing the ripple effects of ADHD on personal connections. From executive functioning challenges to time blindness and rejection sensitivity, we explore how these factors can influence the dynamics of relationships.
Trial and Error in Therapy: Embracing the journey of self-discovery and experimentation. Highlighting the importance of building trust, recognising individual needs, and fostering a supportive environment for clients to voice their preferences.
So sometimes it is trial and error, and part of that is actually building a good working relationship where we can say, let’s try this and it’s okay for you to tell me if it’s not working and that’s where I think the therapy bit is different to maybe coaching, because I can see that for some people, they’ve had hundreds of these moments throughout their childhood, throughout their adult years of being told off or they’re too much or they can’t sit still so they’re very. Maybe not even aware that they’ve suppressed that they’ve suppressed those needs.
