The Science

The Shimmer ADHD Coaching Program was created by the leading experts in ADHD, coaching & behavioral health. Our Care Design Team has PhDs and masters degrees in psychology, neuroscience and public health. And quite importantly, they have ADHD themselves.

What is Shimmer?

Shimmer is the #1 ADHD coaching service for adults with ADHD or executive function challenges, created by and for adults with ADHD. We match members with expert ADHD coaches, creating a supportive partnership that will help our members build a life they love 💖 We’ve collaborated with the top ADHD experts, coaches & clinicians to create our science-backed methodology, and have had the privilege of supporting thousands of adults with ADHD in their journey to date.

🔍 What is ADHD coaching & how does it work at Shimmer?

Shimmer’s ADHD coaching is about change. We help you achieve change in any (and often all) domains of your life, with a keen eye on ADHD-specific challenges. We practice a solution-focused, health coaching model with an emphasis on observable actions & behaviors. Shimmer’s ADHD Coaching Program looks at the key dimensions where life takes place for people with ADHD:
- ⏰ Time: managing the past, present, and future
- ⭕ Done: starting, following through, and finishing things
- ⏯️ Pause: emotional regulation

Our ADHD coaches partner with you to co-design a plan that helps you achieve your goals. You'll experiment with strategies on a weekly basis to implement a routine fit specifically for you.

Tactically, each coach-member partnership begins with vision & goal setting, followed by a weekly cadence of experimentation & reflection cycle, delivered through:
- real-human guidance & accountability on a frequent basis,
- science-backed methods (ADHD-focused classic & third-wave CBT)
- modern application of psychological sciences (prospective, positive, health, neuro-)
- personalized experiments of strategies that work for ADHD brains

🧑 Who is Shimmer for?

Shimmer is for people with ADHD or struggling with executive function challenges. We’re for those who are ready to make a change and take real action to reach their goals. We’re for those ready to put in the work. Typically our members fall into 3 categories: those (with ADHD) who:
1. are newly diagnosed or looking to understand their ADHD better: we provide psycho-education and guidance for you to understand ADHD & how it impacts your life
2. have concrete executive function skills they’d like to improve on and are looking for guidance to follow through: we provide the critical knowledge, resources, guidance, support, and accountability so that you actually implement the changes (routines, skills, tools) that will help you reach your goals
3. know they can achieve more and aren’t living at their potential but can’t pinpoint exactly where the issue lies: we use an ACT-based (acceptance commitment therapy/coaching) methodology to help you identify your values and help you live in line with them

The most common areas of change or goals our members come with and we specialize in supporting are:
- Achieving the full potential you know you have
- Building systems, routines, and skills to combat ADHD symptoms
- Uncovering unique individual strengths that can be used to achieve life goals
- Creating & maintaining achievable goals that move you further
- ADHD / executive function challenges: Time management, prioritization, working memory, starting / following through / completing projects
- Finding & thriving in ADHD-friendly careers
- Advocating for accommodations at work
- Building knowledge and awareness around your ADHD
- Becoming more productive at workWork-life balance
- Emotional support (e.g. Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria, low self esteem, imposter syndrome, etc.)
- Organizing & decluttering the home
- …and much more!
