What is ADHD?

ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) is a condition that affects people’s feelings and behaviour. It involves difficulty focusing or prioritising with or without hyperactivity and/or impulsive behaviour. Adults with ADHD often struggle with mood swings, anxiety and depression. It is a common misconception that ADHD only occurs in children. So, despite its high prevalence, very few adults with ADHD get the proper help they need.

Which Treatment Path is Right for You?

Navigating treatment options as an adult with ADHD can be a confusing process. By equipping yourself with important information about your options, you can make a decision that’s right for you.

For some people, therapy when combined with medication can be an effective path. For other people, either therapy or medication on its own, can be a preferred and equally effective choice. Whichever path you choose, ADHD does not have to hold you back from living your life to the fullest and achieving your goals.

How Can Therapy for ADHD Help?

Working with an ADHD therapist can be transformational for many people. It can open your eyes to all the ways ADHD impacts your life and equip you with tools to establish a healthier, happier future. Our ADHD therapists can help you harness your unique strengths and skills and teach you practical strategies to help you overcome the challenges of ADHD. Therapy can be especially helpful if you have depression, anxiety, or other psychological difficulties alongside ADHD.

Overcoming Anxiety & Work Stress – Improving Career & Relationships
After a number of false starts with therapists, I can only say that I wish I had found Maggie sooner! Over a period of 15 years I had seen multiple therapists and psychiatrists to address issues relating to anxiety, depression and workplace stress. With invariably unsatisfying results, I was extremely skeptical about seeing another therapist… utterly pessimistic about the possibility of being happy. My skepticism proved unfounded.

Overcoming Career Anxiety & Work Stress
I had never thought I was someone who would need counselling or therapy, as I had always been very strong. However when my career wasn’t going quite as I had planned it, I found I was becoming very negative and mentally spiralling out of control – in fact turning myself into a victim. Maggie was outstanding at providing me with what I needed, not as a “quick fix” but by giving me the tools to use whenever I may need…

Medication for ADHD

Medication may help reduce interruptive and hyperactive behaviours and improve focus, thinking ability, and social interactions. It can also improve attention and concentration. However, medication does not necessarily help people reduce or overcome symptoms of disorganisation, poor time management, forgetfulness, and procrastination. Therapy can help you address these areas.

Symptoms of ADHD We Can Help With

The symptoms of ADHD can be categorised into 2 types of behavioural problems: Inattentiveness – including difficulty concentrating and focusing and Hyperactivity and Impulsiveness. Many people with ADHD have problems that fall into both these categories. Below are some common ADHD symptoms we can help with:

  • Difficulty focusing/concentrating
  • Difficulty prioritising / time management
  • Feeling hyperactive or impulsive
  • Easily distracted
  • Mood swings

  • Nervous energy

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can provide an ADHD diagnosis?
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be diagnosed by a psychotherapist or psychologist, a psychiatrist, even your family doctor.  Choosing the appropriate professional to conduct an ADHD diagnosis — and oversee the subsequent treatment — can be difficult, and confusing. Each specialty has its strengths and weaknesses to consider.  Here is a short list of who does what.
 
Psychotherapist or Psychologist
 
A psychotherapist or psychologist understands how the mind, emotions and behaviour are impacted by ADHD.  They can diagnose ADHD symptoms and show you how to manage and minimise any negative impact they have on your life.  A therapist can help you consider whether a treatment path of; therapy or medication or a combination of both, would work best for you.  A therapist cannot prescribe medication but they can provide you with a recommendation for a doctor or a psychiatrist who can prescribe medication.  A therapist costs considerably less than a psychiatrist.   
 
Psychiatrist
 
A psychiatrist is an M.D. who treats the brain and may prescribe medication or other treatments for ADHD. The advantages are that they are trained in medical diagnosis and are able to prescribe medication and other treatments.  The disadvantages are the cost, which usually start at about £500 an hour and go up from there.  Most psychiatrists are not trained in counselling, and therefore, in providing appropriate coping strategies which are often needed by the person who has ADHD.
 
Your Family Doctor
 
Most family doctors know of ADHD, but may lack the extensive knowledge of more specialised professionals.  A few advantages, they are already familiar with you and your medical history and can prescribe certain medications if needed.  However the disadvantages are they may have limited experience with ADHD, especially in adults and cannot offer therapy, which is one of the proven treatments for ADHD.
