Second of four posts covering my diagnosis journey and experience
ADHD at work
Insightful, honest and very funny There have been a few documentaries on ADHD produced over the years, but their format is usually worthy but depressing. The producers focus on cliché. We see naughty, hyper boys with ADHD, with a well meaning but often patronising tone. As adults with ADHD, we watch quite disconnected from the […]

Diagnosis is a turning point I have met and spoken with many adults at the moment of ADHD diagnosis. Many of the clients I start to coach are working through the diagnosis process or have only just been diagnosed. A few years back I had a great job for a while, I ran an Adult […]

Is diagnosis just about trying out medication? So you have always known you were “different” and have finally figured out why. Maybe your child was diagnosed ADHD and you met the criteria too.

I can’t see the problem? Interview with David Giwerc, President ADD Coaching Academy Andrew: Most ADHD adults who come to see me for coaching are profoundly affected by low self-esteem and are often without any hope of improvement. Their self-esteem has eroded from living with their challenges, from the criticism and the self-criticism that follows and […]

Consistently inconsistent? Interview with David Giwerc, President ADD Coaching Academy Andrew: So we are inconsistent and that confuses everyone? David:  Well on the one hand, a kid with ADHD can be playing a sport where they kick a ball and stop a ball coming at them – say a soccer ball at 70mph – yet they can’t […]

We need to be engaged to succeed Interview with David Giwerc, President ADD Coaching Academy Andrew: We can handle our challenges by figuring out new ADHD-friendly ways to do things and to do them our way. Basically to forget the usual way of getting stuff done. But we can also decide that we really don’t have […]
ADHD at work
What comes easily to you? Interview with David Giwerc, President ADD Coaching Academy Andrew: I think that it’s not easy for those of us with ADHD people to work out our strengths and talents. They may be buried under years of problems and battered self-esteem. If you ask somebody with ADHD, “what do you do well?” – the response […]

Focusing on the negative Interview with David Giwerc, President ADD Coaching Academy Andrew: Do we pay attention to the wrong things? As ADHD adults we seem better at paying attention to our problems, our issues and we take for granted the positives.

What do you pay attention to? Interview with David Giwerc, President ADD Coaching Academy Andrew: You’re right David, after my years with depression and feeling stuck,  I started to make a series of changes to my lifestyle and my outlook.

Making lasting change Interview with David Giwerc, President ADD Coaching Academy Andrew: When we coach an adult client usually a lot starts to change in their lives. But sadly the usual ADHD life time experience is that when attempts are made to changes behaviours, they often don’t last. Making lasting change is difficult, new routines are interrupted and […]

Sticking to the program Interview with David Giwerc, President ADD Coaching Academy Andrew: Something becomes habitual after 40 days, is that right?

Mighty oaks from little acorns grow Interview with David Giwerc, President ADD Coaching Academy Andrew: It’s important to wake up and start with a pleasant ease-in to the day. ADHD adults are emotional, so if the start to our day isn’t a positive one, a day can turn into a series of distractions and avoidances. I see mornings as […]

Making lasting change Interview with David Giwerc, President ADD Coaching Academy Andrew: We lack positive ADHD role models in the UK compared to the US.

There’s no cure, but there is a prescription for a better life Interview with David Giwerc, President ADD Coaching Academy Andrew: After the early euphoria from an adult ADHD diagnosis, it not uncommon to feel disappointment: medications don’t offer a miracle cure, the negative traits of ADHD as not simply going to go away.

No quick fixes Interview with David Giwerc, President ADD Coaching Academy Andrew: Is there a high success rate with the people you coach, in making these changes in their attitude? David: A very high percentage. However, I have to add a note of caution. A very high percentage, if they’re willing to buy into the philosophy of […]

Find the right help Interview with David Giwerc, President ADD Coaching Academy Andrew: In many ways society conditions us to ask for help with physical challenges but not with mental. I’m quite tall, 6’4″, and I am occasionally asked to reach for something off the top shelf in the supermarket. No one is concerned, there is no judgement […]

Find an ADHD coach Interview with David Giwerc, President ADD Coaching Academy Andrew: So many Adults with ADHD that I speak with in the UK and Europe are only recently diagnosed. Do you have one final message for somebody who’s newly self-diagnosed or medically-diagnosed, or who maybe just figured there are ADHD from a friend or a web […]

Disgraceful lack of support In much of the World, the current state of recognition, support and help for ADHD is a disgrace. In many regions there has been an unwillingness, a dragging of the feet to accept ADHD as a problem. We might disagree about the treatments but there is no scientific doubt a large genetically determined group […]
