Attention Deficit, Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a complex spectrum of behavioural challenges. Difficulties with focus, restlessness, sleep, and impulsivity are all features of ADHD. ADHD affects adults and children alike, although often by the time we reach adulthood, we can be experiencing the impact without even being fully aware of it.
It is common to assume that ADHD is a childhood condition that we grow out of. The reality is that adults also struggle with ADHD. ADHD can cause problems with organizing tasks, recalling information, or even appearing on time for appointments. More recent evidence has begun to connect ADHD with sleep related difficulties which compound the problems.
If you have recently been diagnosed with ADHD as an adult, you may have been given a prescription for medication. Although the medication will help with the symptoms, those benefits can be reinforced through therapy. Therapy can help you adapt your coping patterns so that they are more effective, as well as addressing secondary issues that you may be experiencing as a result of your ADHD.
We will help you with assessing the particular form ADHD takes for you, and help you to develop strategies to manage the symptoms associated with ADHD so that you are once again in control of it, rather than feeling that it is in control of you.
