Ever since I nearly started a thesis on adult ADHD (nearly….it’s a long story…), adult ADHD has been a particular interest of mine. Likely this came on the back of completing ADHD assessments for children in an NHS children’s service prior to doctoral training. Although I do not currently offer ADHD assessments (this is coming later in 2024) I do offer treatment for adult ADHD.
Adult ADHD Interventions
Adult ADHD interventions includes psychosocial interventions and developing a greater understanding of how Adult ADHD affects you. Whilst ADHD cannot be cured, we can utilise compensatory strategies to specifically help difficulties caused by ADHD. Although there are commonalities between adults with ADHD, there are differences. For example, some people with ADHD struggle a lot with time-blindness (e.g., although estimating activities will take far less time than they do), whereas some struggle with organisation and planning. These are just three difficulties. The aim in the intervention stage is to:
- help you understand your specific ADHD difficulties
- help you understand how these difficulties affect your life
- bring in strategies you can bring in to help compensate and manage these difficulties
These appointments are, like most appointments, 50 minutes and for simplicity, priced at the same rate as other 50 minute appointments.
As always, any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
