REMOTE ADHD COACHING IN HONG KONG FOR MIDDLE, HIGH SCHOOL, COLLEGE STUDENTS AND ADULTS
What Is Coaching For ADHD?
ADHD coaches collaborate with their clients who have the disorder to address their unique requirements and personal objectives. To manage the core symptoms of ADHD (inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity), most current ADHD coaching programs acknowledge the biological underpinnings of the disorder.
Coaching, however, focuses on the difficulties these symptoms cause in the client’s academic, vocational, emotional, and interpersonal lives and helps them find solutions. Coaches assist individuals and groups in focusing on where they are right now, where they want to be, and how they can get there.
Our ADHD coaches in Hong Kong assist middle, high school, college students and adults with ADHD in completing crucial daily tasks in an orderly, goal-oriented, and timely manner. An ADHD coach works closely with the client to teach them useful skills and assist them in making changes in their everyday lives.
Benefits of ADHD Coaching:
- Continually concentrate on accomplishing your goals.
- Putting intangible objectives into practical actions
- Develop motivation and discover efficient strategies to leverage both real and abstract rewards
- Coaches assist people with ADHD in understanding how their symptoms manifest in daily life.
The main goal of a coach’s questions is to elicit reflection and the client’s answers. Examples of queries that coaches may ask are as follows:
- What adjustments do you wish to make to your everyday routine?
- What small measures can you make today to go closer to your objectives?
- How can you spur yourself on to take steps toward this objective?
- When does this action need to be finished?
- What actions have you previously taken, and when will you take further actions?
- How will you assess your plan’s effectiveness?
Clients receive support from coaches through encouragement, criticism, and actionable advice to help them overcome particular difficulties. Coaches also motivate and hold clients accountable for achieving their objectives. They might provide reminders or make time management recommendations.
A crucial component of the coaching process is having regular check-ins and meetings. Depending on the client’s option, these sessions can be held in person, over the phone, online, by email, via text messaging, or all of the above.
The client and the coach should first discuss issues like the client’s needs, the coach’s and the client’s expectations, fees and payments (coaching services are frequently not covered by traditional health insurance), and the duration of the coaching contract before the coaching process starts.
For clients to reflect on their pleasure in all aspects of life and to create specific, long-term goals that will direct subsequent coaching sessions, the initial coaching session is often an in-depth, 1-2 hour discussion.
Regular remote coaching sessions, which can last 30 to 60 minutes, are used to define and achieve the following week’s goals by developing a step-by-step plan, reporting progress on the previous week’s goals, and reflecting on the variables promoting and inhibiting success.
An evaluation session is held to select the client’s next move and to determine objectively whether progress has been made after the predetermined coaching contract time. Clients can keep the same meeting schedule remotely, modify it, or stop coaching.
What distinguishes coaching from conventional interventions?
Coaching versus Cognitive Behavior Therapy
A person with ADHD may participate in coaching or pursue medicine, depending on their needs. The majority of coaching is based on CBT’s guiding principles. Goal-setting, prioritizing, motivating, planning, scheduling, problem-solving, stress management, impulse control, fostering relationships and communication skills, memory enhancement, and homework assignments are all components that are frequently used in coaching and CBT. However, coaching is thought of as a wellness paradigm and is not intended to assist a client in healing or in overcoming psychological growth barriers.
Coaching is more likely to concentrate on developing habits for a balanced, healthy lifestyle and practical daily living difficulties, including finances, house maintenance, nutrition, exercise, and sleep.
In contrast, CBT is more likely to address emotional control issues and the natural treatment of comorbid illnesses, including substance misuse, depression, and anxiety.
Coaches deal with problems that arise in daily life and frequently concentrate on what, when, and how, but rarely why. If they are not also certified mental health specialists, they lack the training to deal with psychiatric, emotional, and interpersonal issues.
Mental health specialists (such as psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, psychiatric nurse practitioners, and marriage and family therapists) are educated to identify and treat mental health conditions like depression, anxiety, personality disorders, and interpersonal issues through formal educational programs.
Additionally, they need a license to practice. These conditions are optional for coaches.
Compared to educational approaches,
Tutoring is not coaching. One-on-one instruction of subject matter and personalized learning breakdown are key tutoring components. Tutors can instruct students in subjects like geography or history as well as fundamental academic abilities like reading, math, and written language. Additionally, coaching does not involve teaching-learning techniques like how to read a textbook, take notes during lectures, prepare tests, take tests, efficiently manage time, etc. In both tutoring and learning methodologies, the educator is a subject-matter expert who instructs, directs, or displays to the pupil what to do while offering practice opportunities to help students enhance their skills.
Coaching is a collaborative interaction where the coach is assumed to be the subject matter expert. By encouraging contemplation and self-discovery, coaching encourages students to create a unique strategy for achieving their goals and gain a deeper awareness of their strengths and shortcomings.
The approaches and techniques presented in coaching as ideas to be considered a vast subject of knowledge for educators who have received coaching training. In collaborative coaching, the student chooses which concepts to test and develops the most effective learning strategy and implementation plan.
