Could you use a coach in your life? Someone who will listen and offer guidance in areas you want to work on, provide accountability if you need it, and be a cheerleader to remind you of how far you’ve come?
A life coach is not a counselor, and if you struggle with depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues, then you need a professional who is trained as a therapist.
If you don’t need a counselor, or if you have a counselor already and want to add life coaching services, we can help. Our life coaches are highly educated, trained, and experienced. They understand and celebrate neurodiversity, and many of them are neurodivergent themselves. Check out the life coaching programs we offer. One of them might be just what you were looking for.
Which Life Coach Program is Right for You?
No matter where you are on your journey, we offer life coaching programs to meet your needs.
Congratulations! You’re Autistic! Now what?
Think, “Autism Orientation 101.” This is the perfect one-session mini-course for you if you were recently diagnosed and have questions. No question is off the table with your coach; they know how it feels to be curious about a new diagnosis and what it might mean. If you have a question your coach doesn’t have an answer for, they will work alongside you researching to find answers. If you have a family member, partner, or close friend who was recently diagnosed, you might find value in a session for yourself, to help you learn more about the autistic person in your life.
Self-Diagnosis Without Imposter Syndrome
Not everyone wants or needs a full clinical evaluation to know they are neurodivergent. You know yourself and your own brain better than anyone else. Do you need an actual piece of paper with a formal diagnosis to show to your work’s Human Resources department or your school’s Disabled Student Services office? If not, you may be able to save the money you might have spent on a formal assessment and self-diagnose. Many people do, and there’s nothing wrong with it. Who knows your history, your behaviors, and your responses better than you do? You know how to research online. You probably already know that you have autism or ADHD, even if you don’t have a formal diagnosis. But, do you still wonder? Imposter syndrome is real, and many people struggle with self-doubt. If you’d like to consult with a life coach who understands self-diagnosis, and who can help you dispel your doubt and imposter syndrome, you’ve come to the right place. Your life coach can’t diagnose you. If you need a formal diagnosis, check out our assessment page and schedule a free consultation to talk about it. But if you just want to feel more confident about what you already know about yourself, if you want to reflect and talk about it with someone who gets it, then maybe a single-session Self Diagnosis Without Imposter Syndrome life coach program is right for you.
EF for the ADHDer
If you are an ADHDer, you’ve probably experienced challenges related to Executive Function your whole life. This can include organization, prioritizing, attending to tasks, time management, anything related to getting things done. You’re capable and smart, but you may not always feel that way if you find yourself pulled away from what you want or need to do to follow every squirrel down a rabbit hole. Would you like a coach to help you keep on track pursuing the goals you choose for yourself, with no judgment? If so, this might be the life coaching course for you.
Your Roadmap to Independence
This 4-session or 8-session course is perfect for a young adult getting started in life, an older adult facing life changes, or any age. This life coaching course is completely customizable, with multiple units available. At your first free consultation with your life coach you decide what direction you want to go and plan out your sessions together. Units are based on concepts and strategies in Wendela Marsh’s book, Independent Living with Autism: Your Roadmap to Success, and cover topics such as Communication, Time Management, Money Management, Transportation, Social Navigation, Sensory Challenges, Housing, Independence, Recreation, Disclosure, Self-Advocacy, and Employability. You decide what is most important to you, and your life coach will work with you to achieve your own goals.
When you’re at that place in your life where two roads diverge, it can be daunting. It’s so much easier to just stay in one place rather than moving forward, and to ignore problems that get in your way. Of course, those problems don’t disappear just because we ignore them, and they can seem to grow out of all proportion. Having a life coach problem-solving partner to come alongside you, look at your problem with new eyes, offer a new perspective, and suggest possible solutions you may want to try, could be just what you need.
It’s Your Diagnosis: To Tell or Not to Tell?
Do you cringe when you think about sharing your new diagnosis with your partner, family, workplace, therapist or doctor? Who should you tell, and when should you keep it to yourself? Disclosure is a very personal decision, and your life coach will not make that decision for you. However, if you want a sounding board to talk out the possible scenarios, pros and cons with sharing your diagnosis with someone, a life coach may be for you. Once you decide who you want to tell, you could practice how it might go in a role play with your life coach if that’s helpful. Practice can give you a confidence boost so you’re ready to move forward and act on your decision.
