Coaching Program

Stage 1: ADHD Big Picture

This is where we establish the big picture, the lay of the land. It provides clarity for you (having to explain it), and for me (so I understand where you are at, and so we don’t reinvent the wheel).

We will talk through ADHD 101 – the basics of ADHD – and you can ask as many questions as you like (even the ones you might have been embarrassed to ask before).

We work on establishing your unique strengths, and your unique challenges.

We step back and take a big picture look at your life, and set some goals that you would like to move forward with.

Lastly, we put together an ADHD calendar – a 12 month look-ahead to guide both of us in the best way to move forward.

Key things to remember:

  • Coaching is a partnership – you are the expert when it comes to your life, and I am a skilled coach. So you could think of a coaching session as though we are bringing half of the tools each, but the end goal is your success.
  • You will get out what you put in 😊 Same as anything in life, really.
  • At the end of the second session, we will talk about what you would like to do next, including the coaching options, but also other possible ways forward.

Key Info: 2 sessions (plus a tiny bit of homework), $300.

PS – the ADHD Big Picture is a great place to start for a teenager (young adult) and their parent/s to come and see if coaching would be helpful for the teen.

 

Stage 2: Coaching – Choose your own adventure
Level 3 – The Gold Standard in Coaching

Weekly coaching – there is no better way to get momentum and see things start to shift than weekly coaching. Not for the faint-hearted, gold-standard coaching creates energy, clarity, and you will feel in control. Use it as a kick-start or stay on Level 3 for as long as you want.

Billed in 6-week blocks, $540 for 6 sessions

Online or in-person

Only available after the ADHD Big Picture.

 

Level 2 – Happy Medium

If you’re not ready for the intensity of weekly support, you might prefer a 3-month strategic approach. Fortnightly coaching, with clear goals for the 3 months ahead. Or perhaps you’ve achieved some momentum and clarity with Level 3, and now you’re ready to space our sessions out a bit!

Billed in 3-month blocks, $540 for 6 sessions

Online or in-person

Level 1 – Shoot the Breeze

Not sure what you want? Got a tricky thing to nut out? Book a session. Or maybe two. Use this one-off session for getting your thoughts out of your head and getting another voice into the mix.

Billed individually, $110 per session

Online or in-person

Only available after the ADHD Big Picture.

 

Study Support Coaching

This is specifically for students who would like support with the “how-to” of study. It is not subject matter focused, like tutoring, but skills focused. How to plan a study session, understanding motivation, cutting through the overwhelm of multiple subjects with multiple deadlines.

We use a term or semester-based approach, but it’s never too late to start.

10 week school term – $900 (pro-rata available)

13 week university semester – $1170 (pro-rata available)

Exam period – customised timetable of coaching to support your exam schedule.

 

Benefits of Study Support Coaching are:

  1. Specialised session structure to teach study skills as well as cut through overwhelm and negative habits.
  2. Action-oriented conversations – no need to get into complicated stories or explanations.
  3. Accountability – an over-used word, but if getting started and getting finished are challenging for you then accountability is a great motivation hack.
  4. Fun – there’s no finger-wagging or recriminations here, we’re just looking for the fastest, easiest and most fun way to get your study done.

 

What is a session like?

You will find me in a peaceful wellbeing practice in Hawthorn or welcoming clinic in Donvale. I have a strong commitment to allowing you the space and time to relax and not feel rushed.

I prefer to see a parent (or both parents) without children present to allow in-depth discussion. If I am seeing a child or family, the discussion will at all times prioritize the wellbeing and participation of the child. You are welcome to let me know of any sensitive areas of concern privately before a session if a child will be present.

We are guided by your goals and the map we develop together, but in each session I will ask you what it is that you would like to work on. A great session is one in which you feel you have been able to explore the struggle you are having, increase your awareness of yourself, your family and ADHD, then plan to move forward with success.

You can expect to leave a session with clarity and with hope.
