How can you start?
You try completing Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS-v1.1) Symptom Checklist Instructions. Feel free to contact us to discuss your results.
Our psychologists specialise in providing assessment and treatment of Adult ADHD. The assessment consists of a clinical interview (questions to establish the pattern of your difficulties) and few questionnaires completed in 2 sessions.
Following the assessment you will be provided with practical strategies to manage your current difficulties.
You can now book your assessment online.
Please feel free to contact us @ email@example.com if you have any questions.
Once your assessment is completed we can assist you with managing your ADHD symptoms. A lot of our clients prefer to attend psychological treatment in order to learn strategies to manage their everyday difficulties. We use evidence based approaches such as CBT and EMDR.
The most common issues addressed during ADHD treatment:
- low confidence
- negative self judgment (“never good enough” thoughts)
- motivation issues
- relationship difficulties
- unrelenting standards
- body image and eating issues (due to high co-existence of eating disorders)
Please note that we are unable to help you if you are considering starting medication to manage your ADHD, for this purpose you will need to see to a psychiatrist. You will need a GP referral to see a psychiatrist.
