What is an add coach?
An ADD Coach is a person who has specialized training in helping the ADD client to reach his or her personal goals.
A good coach is one who knows how to encourage people, can think of solutions to problems, and can provide the support necessary to allow the client to accom-plish his or her goals.
Coaching and therapy are two different things. "Psychotherapy deals with healing psychological issues and is generally long term and intensive dealing with inter and intra personal issues as well as cognitive and behavioral develop-ment.
The focus is often on past history and how it relates to that individual's develop-ment," says ADDitudes's Coach on Call Sandy Maynard. She continues, "Coaching is very proactive and does not deal with psychological issues."
