Those of us with ADD sometimes run into things we can't solve on our own. Problems can pop up in the areas of relationships, finance, or career, and when things go awry, it's often hard to get them turned around. If you're smart, you'll look for help. You should probably be asking, "How do I find a life coach?"

These people are professional helpers. They can determine your goals and help you to achieve them more quickly than you could on your own. These people can help you to find the right career, to straighten out your finances, and even help you to find the perfect partner. Just be sure that because you have ADD that the coach understands what ADD is about and specializes in treatment of ADD issues.

These people aren't mental health professionals, though they should be educated in ADD, because it's their job to help you get where you want to go regardless of what the issues ADD can present to block you. They must have the ability to set a path to help you go directly to the goals you set, faster and considerably easier. Think of them as facilitators.

Just make an educated decision before hiring the first coach you find. Life coaching is not a regulated industry, and there are no degree or certification requirements. So, be sure to check on each person's background first. And even when you do find a suitable coach, you should spend some time with him or her. Sometimes, they'll offer a free session, and you should definitely take advantage of that. Be sure that your personalities mesh and that you feel comfortable together. You may have to try a few different coaches before settling on the one that's right for you.

Ultimately, you'll see progress pretty early on, if you've chosen the right coach. If they understand your goals quickly and present you with a reasonable path to follow in achieving them, knowing you have attention deficit, you probably are on the right track. But if you are spending several sessions just figuring out what your goals are and wasting time waiting for an action plan to appear, you may have the wrong person. Just understand that when you ask" How do I find a life coach?" it's probably going to be a trial and error process. But if you're lucky enough to find the right person early on, don't waste time. Start changing your life for the better and controlling your ADD.
