Life Coach Directory

Life Coach Directory was set up to increase the awareness of life coaching and enable visitors to find the most suitable coach. Coaching is the process of guiding a person from where they are, to where they want to be. To ensure a professional website is maintained, only life coaches who have shown proof of qualifications and insurance cover, or proof of membership with a professional body, are listed. 

The directory has a page dedicated to ADHD -  http://www.lifecoach-directory.org.uk/articles/adhd-coaching.html
