Maureen’s two adult children live with the impact of ADHD and are the reason she was similarly diagnosed and eventually became an ADHD coach. Her son is a graduate of Landmark College, a premier two-year college for students with ADHD.
Positive Thinking and ADHD Coaching
Maureen’s increased focus in attention coaching is an outgrowth of the Positive Thinking movement. Her coaching instructs clients in ADHD education with a belief that education is power:
as L.B. said ‘I learned more in one hour with Maureen about ADHD than in six months with my psychiatrist’.
She also believes in
- collaborative relationships with all the support professionals a client brings to the relationship, or is referred to through their work together and
- instructs clients in community building for their life-long support. In addition to the conventional education and training,
- is interested in Graphology (Handwriting Analysis) as an assessment for attention – as attention is a state of consciousness that is expressed in handwriting.
