I want to thank Vidya from Calm Seas Coaching for her support and partnership as I addressed ADHD behaviors to make improvements in my life.
I can’t say enough about Vidya’s knowledge of ADHD or her consultative approach to guiding her clients. My ADHD was diagnosed later in life (late 40’s) and I was eager to learn more about ADHD, and about any tools that I could leverage to my benefit. Vidya took time to educate me on the ADHD nervous system and then worked with me to address areas of my life to improve. In a short time, my wife and saw improvements in my ability to self-regulate in the areas of focus.
Vidya’s approach made it easy to engage, and I was quickly able to share my challenges with her. She worked with me to identify areas of my life to focus on, first to understand what my brain was doing in these areas, then to review recommendations about how to work differently. Vidya understood that I learn best from visuals, and used these to help me understand the concepts she was sharing.
I’m so thankful to Vidya for sharing her knowledge and coaching techniques. My life is better because of her partnership with me.
Coaching with Vidya has truly been life altering. Her compassion comes through her coaching in a way that relaxes your inner mind enough to target the complexities of whatever is challenging you. Her warmth invites full disclosure without regret. She made me realize my potential. I didn't realize my strength until she reintroduced me to my possibilities. At the apex of our coaching, I was able to let go of my defenses and soar. I am now on an unstoppable trajectory of endless limits. Hands down one of the best coaches!
Vidya is kind, patient, and insightful. She helped me work through the challenges of being a first-time mom and find greater balance in my life. Highly recommend!
Vidya coached me to succeed. I came to Vidya with my recently diagnosed Adult ADHD challenges. She worked with me to discover and assemble a successful plan for me. In my final meeting, I was pleased to see that the strengths I now have are the exact challenges that I wanted to overcome!
When I came across the website for Calm Seas Coaching, I knew I found what I was looking for. The website does a wonderful job of respectfully outlining the challenges of having ADHD. It also outlines what I wanted to accomplish. I was diagnosed as an adult. Growing up, not know why I struggled, I developed strategies and techniques so that I wouldn't let people down with my inconsistency. I sacrificed my self care, interests, desires. For years, I though this was what I had to do to compensate for my ADHD. From the start of coaching, Vidya helped me see my strengths and helped me use them to develop structures, focus of mind, in order to reach my goals and meet my personal needs. In 3 months, I woke up to experience joy again. Vidya gets ADHD. In a loving, patient, and firm way. She held me to my strengths and goals and helped me chart paths of acceptance. Vidya is the coach I needed.
I was diagnosed with ADHD at age 42. My untreated ADHD was impacting my life in serious and negative ways and I needed help. I didn't fully understand that much of what had been considered "depression" and "anxiety" along with emotional regulation and low threshold for stress was much more related to ADHD and my brain's wiring than it was my fault or indications that I was lazy and dysfunctional. My confidence had plummeted. My life started to feel like it was unraveling. I needed help. Since I started working with Vidya, I understand myself so much better, I am starting to like myself again, I forgive myself more easily, and my marriage has gotten stronger. I am not yet the parent that I want to be, but Vidya is helping me in ways that I didn't anticipate when I thought I was 'just' signing up with an ADHD coach. She is compassionate, smart, gets down to business, and also lets me talk when I need to. I highly recommend Vidya to anyone of any age, and even family members who want to understand and support a loved one with this often misunderstood (and poorly named!) "disorder." I am grateful I finally have clear answers and direction from Vidya.
Vidya made an enormous difference for me. I was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult and was struggling to find strategies that would help me accomplish what I needed to. My ADHD was affecting my work and my relationships, and while I had medication and therapy, I still felt like I wasn't doing as well as I could.
With Vidya's help, I came to understand my ADHD better and developed strategies based on what works best for me.
Working with Vidya has honestly changed my life for the better! As a mother of two kids with ADHD, I was completely at a loss with how to manage all of the stress and intensity in our home life.
In addition to learning more about ADHD and the unique wiring of the ADHD brain, I have become more skilled at setting up my kids (and even my marriage) for greater success. While I initially reached out to Vidya to coach my children, I've seen such incredible value in her expertise that I "stole" her for myself. She is absolutely amazing! She learns about you as an individual, and then makes observations and/or asks questions that allow you to formulate your own solutions/answers.
Since working with her, my focus has shifted from "my failures as a parent" to my evidence-based history of successes. I have learned to recognize and respond to my own triggers and counterproductive thought patterns (thinking traps) that have gotten in the way of more positive outcomes. In simplest terms, coaching has been about making the shift away from the typical "negative" mindset of what we DON'T want towards the more positive mindset of what we DO want! Thanks to Vidya, not only have I improved my skills in seeing the world through a lens of positivity, but I have been able to pass that knowledge on to my kids, family, and friends.
