ADHD & Life Management Coaching
with Diane Thomson, MS COC
Due to the COVID crisis, Thomson Blueprints for Living has suspended all residential organizing services. This situation has fast tracked my shift to virtual coaching, either via phone or video conferencing.
My mission is to help adults and students gain insight into the impact of ADHD on their lives, explore opportunities for change, and assist in developing structures and routines to stay on track. This is done using reflection, insight, motivation and action. Imagine feeling successful at doing what you know and want to do, but have struggled with being able to do it.
The client's job is to be curious, willing to experiment and trust in the learning process.
Now in particular, the unknown territory of remote working and remote learning is thrust upon us. Through the supportive process of coaching, I help both adults and students establish ways to adjust to and manage this change in environment and loss of known structures.
Please bear with me as I update this website to reflect the changes Covid has made on my business.
Organizing for Life
Thomson Blueprints for Living helps create order for individuals and families in their homes, offices and daily lives. Homes are clutter free and family members are engaged in the preservation of order. There is room to think clearly, know what needs to be done and take timely action. Not only feel a sense of accomplishment, but also have time to relax, breath, create and enjoy being with the ones you love.
In addition, we can help student’s lives by teaching them organizational skills, and introducing systems and routines that reinforce their academic success. Homework gets done and turned in on time. Students feel in control and parents relax.
Coaching for Change
In the context of organizing, coaching can create clarity and determine solutions by addressing the roots of disorganization and enlisting the power of change as part of the organizing process.
Like an iceberg, when dealing with - clutter, disorganization, time management problems, an inability to complete tasks - we only see the tip of the entire situation, while many of the obstacles remain beneath the surface. Together we identify those obstacles, create strategies and actions that create long lasting change.
Education & Support Groups
Through workshops and presentations, participants are introduced to organizing principals that inform them how to better manage time, papers, tasks and clutter. Specific presentations on student disorganization, chronic disorganization, ADHD and hoarding provide education on the role they play in the struggle to be organized and productive.
Clutter Clearing Support Groups provide a safe and supportive environment to share struggles of letting go, get unstuck and create a home to be proud of.
