You can count on us to help you overcome the daily struggles and live a better life!

Women with ADD/ADHD are bright, intelligent, creative, and fierce.

If you've been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, chances are you're struggling with feelings of shame, guilt, or embarrassment. You're also more likely to suffer from anxiety, depression, and sleep issues. We are here to help you overcome these roadblocks to your happiness!

Have you or your child been diagnosed with ADHD and been asked to take ADHD counseling and coaching? Then you are in the right place! Brave is the gateway beyond which your ADHD-inflicted issues come to an end. 

The first step to solving a problem is to identify it. You being here means you are on the right track. But let us guide you through what exactly ADHD is and the symptoms before we tell you how we can help. 

What is ADHD, and How Severe is it? 

The world is full of distractions, but for people with ADHD, these distractions can feel like they're on steroids. The urge to check your phone every few minutes or to start tapping your foot to a rhythm only you can hear can be overwhelming. You try to focus, but your mind keeps drifting away like a leaf caught in a gust of wind.

But there's more to ADHD than just fidgeting and distraction. It's a medical condition that affects millions of people, and it's not something that can be cured by just telling someone to "focus more."

In fact, according to a study conducted by CDC in 2016, about 6 million children were diagnosed with ADHD.

ADHD Symptoms in Children and Teenagers

Too often, a child's inattention and disordered or frenetic conduct is mistaken for being badly mannered, mischievous, or indicative of a low IQ. The resulting effect is that the child is burdened through school and preadolescence, struggling with fear, nervousness, or destructiveness.

No child should have to suffer alone. Left undiagnosed, the issue can later lead to mental health complications such as depression and persistent anxiety. Unfortunately, some children go on into adulthood never recognizing that the reason for their affliction was ADHD. Then, in later life, they become aware of available options such as ADHD counseling and coaching that could have enabled them to live much more comfortably. Nothing is worse than realizing one's suffering was preventable.

Therefore, some symptoms you should look for in your child are:


Here are some of the main signs of inattentiveness:

  1. Cannot stay focused
  2. Make careless blunders
  3. Does not listen when spoken directly to
  4. Often daydreams 
  5. Have trouble taking turns
  6. Has trouble with the organization

Hyperactivity and Impulsiveness

Your child is probably going through hyperactivity and impulsiveness if the following are the symptoms:

  1. Unable to sit still in peaceful situations
  2. Is very talkative 
  3. Often fidgeting
  4. Constant physical movements
  5. React to the situation without thinking
  6. Doesn't worry about any future repercussions

ADHD Symptoms in Adults

Adults who have ADHD often show these symptoms:

  • Lack of concentration on detail
  • Starting a new task before properly ending the first one 
  • Poor administrative skills
  • Incapability to focus
  • Misplacing items
  • Perturbation and fidgets
  • Difficulty keeping calm and uttering when not needed
  • Constant interruption while others are talking
  • Anger issues
  • Inability to deal with anxiety

What causes ADHD?

A range of issues causes ADHD. But most often, unfortunately, genetics is the main reason. Other reasons for ADHD include: 

  • Alcohol and tobacco use during pregnancy
  • Neurological wiring 
  • Premature delivery
  • Heredity or genes
  • Head injuries 

Is ADHD a Severe Problem?

Could it be true that the legendary Albert Einstein was diagnosed with ADHD? Believe it or not, this diagnosis is shared by many of the world's most renowned figures, including basketball greats Michael Jordan and John F. Kennedy, as well as Bill Gates.

With the proper assistance, such as ADHD coaching and counseling, individuals can unleash their fullest potential. However, when left untreated, this disorder can have many far-reaching negative effects, such as recurring failure, depression, relationship issues, and even substance abuse.

The choice is up to you: join the list of acclaimed success stories, or bear the consequences of leaving ADHD unaddressed. Brave is here to provide assistance, so don't hesitate to reach out if you or someone close to you is struggling with this disorder.

We at Brave, with our unique ADHD counseling and coaching programs, have helped many kids, students, college graduates, and even adults with ADHD live a better life.

ADHD Coaching

Our ADHD Coaching services can help you learn how to implement the skills in practical scenarios. Rather than simply discussing the things you want to achieve, you'll have the opportunity to perform tasks in real time with your coach. Your coach will provide education, guidance, and feedback along the way. We will explore various ways for you to complete your desired tasks while ultimately achieving your goal. You have the option of choosing between individual and group coaching.  

ADHD Counseling

Our ADHD Counseling services, on the other hand, help you overcome the negative feeling of guilt, shame, or embarrassment. Anxiety, depression, and sleep issues are other disorders that follow ADHD. But don't you worry anymore. Our therapists are patient listeners who help you navigate to the deep-seated reasons causing the turmoil. 

Psychiatry for ADHD

For more severe and critical cases, we have a specifically trained psychiatry team who fix the biological problems that cause mental disorders by conducting tests, restoring chemical imbalances using a medication, and resolving neurological issues that cause ADHD.

Our ADHD counseling and coaching can help you with the following:

  • Boosting confidence 
  • Become independent
  • Overcome negative feelings such as shame, guilt, and feeling incompetent
  • Understand your triggers 
  • Overcome limitations & underdeveloped skills 
  • Embrace & leverage strengths
