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 Marla Cummins, an ADHD Coach and founder of Lilo Wellness.
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 Marla Cummins can help improve the lives of those with ADHD, their partners and spouses, family members, coworkers and friends.
Marla Cummins provides ADHD coaching and productivity consulting for adults with ADHD through one-on-one coaching and a membership website with weekly Zoom check-ins for members.
With a BA in Economics and a Masters Degree in Experential Education, Marla Cummins has over 20 years of experience helping people achieve greater productivity in their lives.
Learning how to manage her own ADHD led Marla to pursue her dream of running a business despite the challenges that she faced. As the sole wage earner in her family, she ‘literally couldn’t afford to be all over the place’.
After trying other productivity systems, Marla found they didn’t work for someone with ADHD. She began to research and test strategies to learn what worked best, and gathered her strategies in what would eventually become a book: ADD to Done: Beyond Stuck, Procrastination and Overwhelm.
To better help others and learn more strategies for improving productivity with ADHD, Marla received a number of trainings and certifications including Core Co-Active Coaching and Certification programs, through Coaches Training Institute, ADHD Coaching: Levels I and II at Landmark College Institute for Research and Training, and Coaching Teens & College Students with ADHD through the Edge Foundation.
Those in Australia should note that Marla is located in the United States. She offers individual one-on-one coaching and a membership website full of resources to improve productivity. Members can also participate in weekly Zoom sessions that provide tips, build a sense of community and improve accountability.
Marla’s blog offers a great series of articles to help those with ADHD improve their productivity. In addition, she has a wonderful Podcast, ‘Reimagining Productivity with ADHD’, which can make it easier for those on the go to access tips and resources for improving productivity. Each Podcast also includes a transcript on her site, for those who prefer to read or want to follow along in the text. You can also listen or subscribe to her Podcast at Apple.
Her latest episode is How Adults Who Process Slowly Still Reach Their Goals:
