the ADHD Guy
what is Heartfulness?

Heartfulness means discovering, identifying, actualizing, and applying your abilities. We start by exploring your strengths. What do you like? What’s important to you? What are you good at? How do you spend your time? What relationships in your life are important to you? What environments are you most comfortable in? How do you handle challenge? What does it mean to be resilient?

Our approach is heartful and human, not clinical, nor prescriptive. Having ADHD is not your fault. While it means that doing certain things might be more difficult, it also means that you are exceptional in other areas. We can help you cultivate the best of your abilities, and help you combat the shame you may have felt about it. ADHD is just a label; just a way of describing a set of conditions and way of being in the world. You are not broken. In fact, once you’ve mastered living with your ADHD, you will be able to actualize the amazing gifts you have to offer.

The ADHD Tool Box

ADHD stands for Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder. People with ADHD have trouble paying attention or concentrating. Symptoms of ADHD are grouped into three categories: inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. It’s hard to follow directions, and boredom and frustration with tasks is common. People with ADHD tend to move constantly and are impulsive, not stopping to think before acting. These symptoms can make it hard to function in school, at work, and in relationships. Adults with ADHD may have difficulty with time management, organizational skills, goal setting, employment; as well as relationships, self-esteem, and addictions. The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) estimates that 3% to 5% of children have ADHD. Some say ADHD may occurs in 8% to 10% of school-aged children. ADHD is now recognized in more adults than previously thought.


Introduction

We can help with a heartful,  human approach to ADHD, not a clinical or prescriptive one. We explore what your needs are. We focus on you and how we can help. We want you to discover, identify, actualize, and apply! Use your talents, abilities, interests, values, and strengths!


Strengths Chat

We all have strengths – things we are good at. What are you good at? What do you love to do? What do others think you’re good at?  So often the narrative for ADHD is negative. What role does the Shame Blame Game play in debilitating our sense of Self? The Strengths Chat  provides an opportunity to change that narrative. It gives us a chance to tell our stories in meaningful ways.  Together we discover ways to place your strengths up front and center as a guiding beacon to a more moralizing, meaningful, purpose driven life.


Values Compass

How do you spend your time? The Values Compass sheds light on any descrepencies between what’s important to you, and how you actually spend your time. Focusing on you abilities, skills, values, and passions, we help define your Arete, your sense of purpose. We help you develop tools to keep what’s important to you up front and center


Auto Pilot

Why do we have trouble meeting our goals? If we are flying from LA to Paris, why do we keep winding up in Hong Kong? Our auto-pilot is driven by unconscious core beliefs about ourselves that influence what we do in ways that we are not aware of. The Auto-Pilot tools focuses on little habits each day that lead us to what we really want.


Environmental Relationships

Context is everything! What relationship does light and sound have on our wellbeing? Emotional stress? What about food, finance, and fitness? We are an organism in relationship to environment aroudn us. This module includes tools designed to help you navigating stressors, both internal and external.


Heartfulness

What we feel, others see. How does anxiety (fear) impact  ADHD? What about depression and anger? How do they connect? What does that mean? How do we regulate and manage our energy fields? Using grounding tools and techniques, as well as verbal processing and guilded imagery, we help you navigate toward a higher sense of well-being while reducing impulsivity and inattention.
