ADHD affects each individual differently; your experiences are as unique as your thumbprint. (Check out the YP Logo’s Parachute Pattern).

ADHD is not a character-flaw, laziness, or bad-behavior, but feelings of shame and unworthiness are common among individuals with ADHD.

Quantum Jump Coaching helps clients unpack feelings of frustration, so they can see themselves as they really are: capable, creative, and whole. Coaching begins with attention to Executive Function Skills and the power that each individual has to make change. Once we begin the healing process, the client learns tools and steps to use their strengths and gifts to live intentionally and meaningfully.

What Can Coaching Do for People with ADHD & ADHD Symptoms?

Executive Function Skills Coaching is for Everyone: Parents, Students, Leaders… You!

A good coach can lead you to your goals by helping you develop:

  • Planning and management skills

  • Healthier self-esteem & relationships

  • Clearer judgement

  • Self-motivation

  • Time management skills

  • A greater sense of self-efficacy

We help parents, kids, teens, young adults, business leaders, and entrepreneurs who struggle to cope with ADHD symptoms affecting their daily lives and relationships. These individuals seek greater happiness and fulfillment in life but haven’t found a way to make change on their own to relieve anxiety, lack of focus, or depression. We believe that through coaching, people of all ages can find that they have the answers they are seeking already!

With this in mind, we meet clients where they are and help them gain new levels of understanding, self-compassion, and perseverance in achieving long-lasting, meaningful change.

F.A.Q.

No. We are able to work with individuals to bring awareness and change to behaviors and habits regardless of whether or not they have an official diagnosis. Some clients begin coaching before they seek a professional opinion while others discover the opportunity for coaching after a diagnosis.

We strongly recommend a 6 week period of meeting once a week with a coach, to start the coaching process. This recommendation is based on coaching data gathered over several years from different coaching sources.

Therapy is focused on understanding how past experiences influence current behaviors. Healing the past in order to regenerate possibilities for the future.

Coaching is future-focused. You can dip into the past, but it’s more about moving forward.
We as individuals are resourceful and full. We can remove our own obstacles when given the capability in the right setting.

You are in charge! Each person with ADHD has a unique set of strengths and weaknesses.
The coaching curriculum takes each of these into account.
The tool-set adapts to each person’s unique needs.

Great Minds Don’t Think Alike…
We help your student increase motivation and eliminate stress by priotitizing what matters most.

Parents, do these sound familiar?

“School is too important to let things fall apart.”

Do you have clear expectations for your child’s academic performance but struggle with how to both support and challenge them? And, their heavy academic or athletic schedules offer little time for slowing down to figure things out.

“We need a routine that lasts.”

Have you tried creating and recreating an organization system for your child? The color-coded folders, calendars, lists and schedules work for a week, and then the system breaks down.

“They don’t listen to me.”

You’re super-successful at what you do and are a pretty amazing parent. But that doesn’t change the fact that you may “know nothing” when it comes to giving your kids advice. Trust us, Yellow Parachute Coaches experience the same thing in our homes, though we’re experts on this subject matter. Sometimes you just need a different voice to say the same thing. We know, you know. Wink, wink.

“I just want to be Mom.”

You are extremely invested in your child’s well-being but hit a wall when it comes to communicating with them about school. Rather than butt heads and bang fists, delegate the home + school connection to the student and their learning coach.
