ADHD coaching, education and insights

with coach Andrew Lewis

Andrew Lewis, ADHD Coach

Hi, I am Andrew Lewis, full-time Adult ADHD Coach / ADD Coach, presenter, writer and director of SimplyWellbeing. I offer coaching for business professionals, creative types, business owners and entrepreneurs.

My sixteen years ADHD coaching experience – of helping hundreds of ADHD business people and ADHD entrepreneurs better manage themselves, adjust to new situations, make tough decisions, and successfully transform their work and careers – is my strength. Like many with ADHD I have pursued several careers, from programmer, to software marketing and sales, to running several small enterprises. I currently run my own coaching business from home and have helped many solopreneurs and work-from-home clients too – let me help you thrive and succeed.

ADHD coaching is international and by phone. Most clients are here – in the UK. But I have coached ADD and ADHD clients from New York to Paris, Toronto, Riyadh, Grenada, Brussels, Dublin, Washington, Edinburgh, Split and Tokyo.  As long as times work out, we can coach.

SimplyWellbeing DNA BlossomI write and coach from the perspective of difference, not disorder. See my thoughts in What is ADHD? We can only develop from who we are – our genetic roots. The aim is not to “normalize” but to focus on sustainable solutions, on strengths and on what truly engages you.

Free (funded) coaching

Diagnosed ADHD adults in UK, whether employed or self-employed/sole trader, can claim back six months of coaching from Access to Work. Your business pays me, your ADHD coach, in advance and then claims back each month’s fees in arrears. So book an evaluation call with me, complete the AtW application process and we can get coaching within a few months.

ADHD insights

This site is packed with useful information for ADHD adults. There are articles on being successful with ADHD in business,  effective yet unexpected ADHD strategies and some wellbeing tips. There are helpful links, my 20 question “Are you ADHD?” test and many posts on diagnosis, DSM5 criteria, support groups and my personal experiences with ADHD medications. There is even an ADHD store with some book reviews too. Please dive in!

ADHD coaching by numbers

I love being an ADD/ADHD Coach. To be a part, sometimes briefly, sometimes for years, of the lives of the many interesting, diverse, funny, talented ADD adults that I coach is a privilege.

I began coaching 14 years ago. I have coached over 300 ADHD clients, including at least 90 entrepreneurs, 7 lawyers, 5 ADHD specialist psychiatrists, at least 40 entertainers, 30 medical doctors, more than 35 university students, over 100 business professionals yet oddly only 1 professional hot air balloonist.


Client stories

I feel like sending you flowers or something. Honestly I feel your solution-focused help is materially better and more impactful than even what therapists have often said… I think you having ADHD and being a rigorous rational intelligent and warm-hearted person means you really understand precisely what I need.

Your insight and understanding (depth of understanding!!) has had a huge impact on me feeling hopeful. It’s hard to admit certain bad habits, lifestyle problems to anyone in regards to our specific “make-up”. So to be able to do that and for you to be open with your experiences as a fellow ADDer is incredibly healing. More client stories…

Hi Andrew, I wanted to say thank you for your coaching. I have managed to get on top of my anxieties at work, feel empowered to use my unique strengths at work and outside, and feel much closer to a simple wellbeing. I am doing fine, you are too effective at your job for your own good! The series of coaching calls was a life line. More client stories…

I worked with Andrew Lewis for over a year. During that time I raised my income, published several pieces of writing and built my self-confidence. I worked for it, but his help was a great support in realizing this potential. He can help you organize your life so that you are in a position to be creative and productive. More client stories…

The experience was truly life changing, and I’m still in disbelief how much shifted over the course of the sessions. By the end of the year with you, I have a healthy work-life balance, don’t work ANY overtime, am off meds, feel wholehearted self acceptance for my ADHD,  and found a dream job, and have far better sleep. I couldn’t have asked for a better coach. More client stories…

Before I spoke to you, my life was chaotic, I was falling behind with my studying, the housework was piling up, everything felt precarious, as though the whole structure could collapse at any moment. The strategies you gave me have helped me to gain control and I am now starting to work out my own strategies. More client stories…

I have been working with Andrew for over two years. During this time I have experienced a substantial evolution in my approach to life, work and family. His coaching has helped me building my internal resilience when facing setbacks and exploring new ways to develop my creativity and inter-personal relationships. More client stories…

Adult ADHD coaching for business, home and life

ADHD affects everything about us: how we engage with and perceive the world, how we relate to others, how we think about our future and how we make decisions. So whether we focus on work, home, health, friends, goals, study, relationships or even the meaning of life – we coach with your ADD/ADHD differences in mind.


Some background

Sixteen years ago, I Wikipedia-diagnosed my ADHD. I’d always known I was different, and not all in a bad way! Impulsively I then sold my 50% share of our growing web-consulting business, to my relieved partner to end my twenty-year career in computing and software. My new career as an adult ADD/ADHD coach began as I started training with ADDCA.

Since 2006 I have been a full-time ADD / ADHD coach and have hosted several regular support groups and talks like: Tear & Share Support Group, ADHD Expert talks, ADHD Women’s Coaching Group in London. I even set up and ran an adult ADHD diagnostic clinic for a while.

Here’s a full bio on me if you want to read more!

I am currently developing some new highly interactive and engaging self-coaching courses, called Breaking down ADHD.

Finally if my site has helped you, maybe buy me my favorite stimulant – a black americano coffee – to say thanks.
