You are unique. You have specific problems, that need specific solutions.
Everyone can benefit from support. The question is whether the support you can get is worth the time, energy, money, and other resources you'd spend on it.
When simple answers work for you,
that's great! But if they don't, there's always more nuance to look at. Everything about being a person is complicated and that's good! There are always more things to learn and do.

What is executive functioning?
Executive Functioning (EF) is a broad term that covers all the skills and strategies that allow you to choose and control your own behavior. To put it another way:
Executive functioning is what allows you to take any idea, desire or decision in your head and actually do something to bring it into reality.
What is executive functioning coaching?
An Executive Functioning Coach is an expert whose job is three-fold.
First, your EF Coach helps you gain an awareness of your current Executive Functioning. They help you learn how you work and why you’ve been struggling with some things and succeeding with others.
Second, your EF Coach helps you gain an awareness of what is required to accomplish the things you want to accomplish and they help you develop the systems, structures, and supports you need in order to bridge the gap between what you are capable of naturally and what it is that you are trying to do.
Third, your EF Coach helps you develop your Executive Functioning. Your ability to choose and control your own behavior will grow over time as you strengthen your cognitive Executive Functioning skills. As you grow, you’ll need less and less time, energy, and support to accomplish the things you want to accomplish.
