We are delighted to announce another addition to The ADHD Advocate Family. Introducing...
ADHD Coaching Richard is a fellow ADDCA trained ADHD Coach who specialises in coaching adults, college students, and families with ADHD. Richard comes with an extensive background in the Corporate world and holds an Honours degree in Psychology with Business. Like all our coaches at The ADHD Advocate he has both professional and personal experience of ADHD, having ADHD in the family. This means he truly "gets it". Richard became an ADHD Coach to help individuals with ADHD transform their lives; from the stress and anxiety of their ADHD symptoms to a better life where they can confidently, understand, manage and thrive with their ADHD.
In his coaching, Richard helps clients pay attention to the ways ADHD shows up in their lives and partners with them to develop their own ‘strength based’ strategies, stripping away their negative narratives and replacing them with success, one step at a time.
Safe and Sound Protocol
In addition to providing ADHD Coaching to his clients, Richard is also trained to deliver "SSP" (Safe and Sound Protocol). SSP is a non-invasive acoustic intervention designed to reduce neurological stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing the capacity for social engagement and emotional resilience.
This allows our more emotionally dysregulated clients (who often are also receiving therapy) to better access coaching as SSP significantly reduces their stress and soothes their autonomic nervous system, increasing their receptivity to the coaching process. Richard himself has a soothing effect. He is a truly lovely guy and has a very calming and grounding effect on the clients he coaches. We are very lucky indeed to have him on the team.
What his Clients say "Richard is an excellent coach - I have always found him friendly and helpful with great intuition, knowledge, insight and wisdom. I came across Richard when pushing various doors looking for answers to help me cope better with the demands of work and family. I have struggled with dyslexia and organisation issues throughout my life and wondered if ADHD/executive function difficulties were involved. Richard has gently helped me to unpack issues past and present and explain the role that divergent neurobiology may have played. He has also helped me though simple lifestyle and organisation techniques to build strategies that work with, rather than against, my executive function challenges.
It is still early days for me on this journey but with Richard’s help I am moving from a position of being overwhelmed with stress, worry and anxiety about life to one of optimistically looking forward to the future with good strategies for coping in place. I would definitely recommend Richard as a coach."
