To make it easier to receive coaching for ADHD, I’ve researched coaches who provide telephone and virtual coaching for ADHD in Australia and around the world. In this article, you can learn more about Melissa Orlov, an ADHD Marriage Consultant and founder of the ADHD & Marriage website.
ADHD Coaches don’t provide medical advice, and you should always consult a psychiatrist for diagnosis and treatment of ADHD. However, working with a coach like Mellisa Orlov can help improve the lives of those with ADHD, their partners and spouses, family members, coworkers and friends.
