Leadership and Principles

Attention Centered CoachingAttention-centered coaching brings professional consultants who’ve succeeded in harmony with their own ADHD together with ADHD diagnosed clients who are looking for guidance in managing this unique brain type.

Reasons to Seek Attention-Centered Coaching

Some adult ADHD patients are looking for alternatives to a lifetime of medication for dealing with ADHD. When approaching ADHD as a brain type instead of a disorder, medication becomes a way to avoid dealing with a problem that’s possible to take control of with the right type of management and coping skills.

Adult ADHD patients may choose to seek private counseling, consultation, or coaching because they are tired of their ADHD brain type being a constant obstacle in life. You have the power to take control of and effectively manage your brain’s impulses by first understanding the way it works. A key component of attention-centered coaching is understanding the ADHD brain type.

Patients are diagnosed with ADHD and one of three ADHD subtypes—either predominately inattentive type, predominately hyperactive-impulsive type, or combined type—when they exhibit major traits or symptoms of the syndrome that are significantly affecting two or more important areas of their life: school, work, social, family, interpersonal relationships, or extracurricular activities. Persons diagnosed with ADHD sometimes seek coaching to improve areas of their lives that are suffering as a result of their ADHD behavior. The specialists at ClearView are leaders in attention-centered coaching.

Coping with ADHD through Support

Studies show that the most effective treatment for living successfully with ADHD is with a combination of medication, therapy and/or counseling, and ADHD coaching.

Adults with ADHD respond particularly well to attention-centered coaching because it encourages them to take control of their lives by embracing their unique traits with effective management and coping skills.

Armed with ADHD management skills that work, many adults can eliminate medication from the triage of treatment options because they find it’s no longer necessary.

ADHD brain types respond very well to tactile, hands-on experiences that ask them to interact with the task at hand. Attention-centered coaching gets ADHD adults involved in their behavior management in order to generate the genuine interest that’s essential to captivating and motivating the ADHD brain type.

Attention-Centered Coaching can help you:

  • Understand the way your brain works in order to help take control of it.
  • Learn coping skills and adaptive behaviors for living a more productive life.
  • Form time-management and organization skills centered around your own subtype, individual interests, and goals.
  • Live up to your potential by using the positive effects of ADHD to overcome the negative ones.
  • Increase your happiness and self-esteem.
  • Learn to pay attention to what you’re paying attention to so you can adjust your focus when necessary.

Learn How to Deal with ADHD Using ClearView’s Coping Strategies

“As long as a man stands in his own way, everything seems to be in his way.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

These words never rang truer than they do for the ADHD brain type. Without learning to properly manage certain traits, people with an ADHD brain may go through life feeling like everything is an obstacle because their way of approaching things is different from what’s considered the norm. This can lead a person to a number of negative feelings that include underachievement, insecurity, anxiety, and low self esteem.

One of the most frustrating experiences in life is knowing that we could have done better. People with an ADHD brain type often fail to live up to their potential, simply because they haven’t learned to recognize and/or manage their unique traits and characteristics.

Since this brain type is shared by 5 to 10% of the population, people have been developing coping strategies to maximize the positive aspects of the ADHD personality—and to minimize the negative ones—for generations. When dealing with adult ADHD, ClearView consultants specialize in coaching strategies that help ADHD brain types turn their negative traits into positive qualities.

If your own brain is what’s standing in the way of your success, this is actually good news! You, your brain, and your behavior are some of the few things in life you have the power to change, but only once they’ve gained control over them. Managing and controlling the ADHD brain type is our specialty.

Some of the guiding principles that ClearView uses to help clients learn how to deal with ADHD and turn it to their advantage include:

  • ADHD is not a disorder, condition, or disease, but a set of characteristics that can be viewed as either positive or negative, depending on how they’re managed.
  • Genuine interest is the key to understanding and controlling ADHD. Since an ADHD brain will not allow a person to “fake” interest, creating genuine interest is a key component to management.
  • The relationship between motivation (interest) and activation (doing), and converting motivation into activation.
  • Medications address issues with activation, while working with an ADHD expert targets the interest, self-awareness, and true motivation necessary to make positive changes
