FAMILY COACHING

​Koaching for Kids recognises that coping with issues at home or at school can be frustrating and efforts to manage these situations can often feel overwhelming.  As a result, many children and their families struggle with the pressures of life, the challenges of growing up and the stresses of adapting to academic environments. 

 

 

Family coaching may include applying behaviour management systems; arranging educational assessments; developing self-advocacy and social skills; acquiring time management and planning skills; obtaining classroom and teaching modifications, learning organisation methods; creating accountability; and developing systems for monitoring progress. Koaching for Kids assists children and their families in developing routines and individual strategies for success in school and in everyday life.

ADHD COACHING FOR ALL AGES ​

In ADHD coaching we understand ADHD and how to work with clients to improve their skills and achieve the results they are looking for.  Using the coaching principle that a client is naturally whole, resilient and creative, ADHD coaching helps people to determine what they want and to clarify the choices to be made.  By helping to identify one’s strengths and by developing compensating approaches for one’s weaknesses, coaching can help a client acquire new skills and work towards achieving realistic goals. 

 

ADHD coaching includes information about ADHD and its impact on the brain’s executive functions, as well as the influence of ADHD on a person’s everyday life.  The coach helps the client achieve goals through the systematic monitoring of progress and mutually agreed upon systems of accountability.  ADHD coaching helps the client to develop individualised strategies that build the essential skills they need to meet their goals and for their success in school and in everyday life.
