Access To Work ADHD

If you’ve landed on this page, you may already know or suspect that you have ADHD. You also may have an Access to Work award already or are seeking one and wondering about the next steps.  If you have received your award, Access to Work will provide you with coaching providers, or you can choose your own coach.

Before beginning coaching it is helpful to know what to expect from a coach, and to understand the difference between ADHD Coaching and counselling as they approach ADHD differently.

Coaching is future-focused, empowering you to set goals, leverage strengths, increase your self-esteem, confidence, and resilience, and enhance organisational skills and time management, vital for navigating ADHD.

On the other hand, counselling can explore past traumas and emotional struggles, fostering understanding and healing.

Coaching emphasises a partnership with you and accountability, aiding you in navigating your unique challenges and enabling you to move forward.
