After being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) at 43 years of age, Brett Thornhill set off on a journey to create what he likes to call ‘Brett 2.0’. Brett learned to minimize his challenges as an adult with ADHD and how to maximize the gifts that come with this disorder (or ‘difference’) as he now likes to call it.
Seeing the massive transformation in himself and his now ability to become a high performer, Brett knew he had to help the millions of others who are struggling to achieve their highest potential. That’s why he became a Certified, Accredited Life Coach in 2014.
Brett is co-host to the successful podcast, The ADD Couple with Jennie Friedman on iTunes. He has been featured on Newfoundland’s, ’Out Of The Fog’ T.V. news station, The St. John’s CBC Morning Radio Show, Attention Talk Radio, Miss ADD Show, ADHD Re-Wired and Attention Magazine, representing over 12,000 members of CHADD, one of the largest ADHD resource organizations in North America.

What Others Say About Working With Brett
Dr. David Lendrum, MD, Calgary, AB CAN
“I received my diagnosis of ADHD at the age of 41, much later than most. When diagnosed, I was, and still am, in a successful and challenging career with a loving family. I searched for an ADHD coach to help me understand my diagnosis, how it had shaped me as a person and how I can use this gift to help me excel in the future. I also wanted to learn some tactics to help make the challenges that accompany this diagnosis less so.
Brett was able to keenly listen to my unique ADHD story and understand how my diagnosis impacts my life and career. During every coaching session, he is able to help me think about the challenges I bring up in a different mindset and help me use my ADHD gifts to solve them. I have enjoyed every session with Brett and would highly recommend him as a coach for anyone with ADHD. He clearly understands the diagnosis, the challenges it can present and how to use one’s ADHD gifts to improve all aspects of their life.“
Susie Sahim, Entrepreneur, San Jose, CA USA
“Brett has been an amazing resource for me as I build my first business. I thought I knew all the tricks to managing my ADHD after spending most of my life reading tons of articles, books, and listening to podcasts. Despite this, I still struggled to manage my time effectively, manage stress/anxiety, stay motivated, and have the mental resilience needed to handle the failures involved in building a business.
Brett helped me to actually apply all those tips at the right times. When I describe problems, he helps me discover solutions. He’s helped me overcome overwhelm and identify barriers that were keeping me from getting tasks done and help me come up with a plan of attack to have more success going forward.
Without Brett’s coaching, I would not be half as far as I am with my business. It’s the best investment I’ve made and I look forward to every session.”
Deon Seifert, Indianapolis, IN, USA
Brett is an essential part of my ride on the ADHD train.
I was diagnosed as an adult, after a lifetime of building compensations, habits (good and bad), and ingrained stories about myself. Brett helps me recognize these stories and rewrite the ones that block my progress. He’s helped me to understand my frustrating procrastination habit, and his techniques help me to address it.
Brett explains how the ADHD brain works in relation to what I’m having trouble with, then we work together to find a way to ‘hack’ that process to accomplish my goals. I cannot recommend him highly enough.”
