ADHD Counselling to Help Bring Life into Focus

When not managed properly, ADHD can impact every aspect of your life. However, with the right support systems in place, your ADHD can actually be an asset. So often folks feel, if they were more disciplined or harder working, their lack of focus wouldn’t be an issue. But the brain doesn’t work that way, and we want to help you work with your ADHD, not against it.

ADHD counselling supports folks with ADHD and can help them build the support systems needed to bring life back into focus.

Life doesn’t have to be hard. Get the help you need.

ADHD and Common Symptoms

While we can all have trouble sitting still or paying attention, some folks have levels of inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity that make it harder to go about their day-to-day. While you can be very successful in life with ADHD, without adequate support your ADHD can result in depression, anxiety, relationship issues and more.  ADHD can present in three different ways:

Inattentive presenting ADHD:

This form of ADHD presents with an inability to focus on small details, easily distracted, forgetful, lack of follow through etc.

Hyperactive-Impulsive presenting ADHD:

This form of ADHD is what most people think of and presents with lots of fidgeting, excessive talking, interrupting, difficulty waiting turns, etc.

Combined presenting ADHD:

This form of ADHD is just how it sounds and is when a person meets the criteria for both inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive ADHD.

How Does Therapy Help ADHD?

Navigating life as someone with ADHD can come with its own set of challenges. The initial relief of an ADHD diagnosis is often accompanied by a complex mix of emotions, including a reflection on how life might have unfolded differently.

In your journey, your counselor is a vital member of your ADHD team. Together, you'll unpack the layers of emotions, explore untapped potential, and chart a course that embraces and celebrates your neuro divergent strengths.

Your counselor is not just here to help; they're here to guide you towards a life where ADHD isn't a hindrance but a superpower waiting to be utilized.
