Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

What is ADHD?

Attention hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that is most commonly diagnosed in childhood, but is also diagnosed in adults. It can affect areas of the brain that allow us to solve problems, plan ahead, understand others actions and control our impulses. Left untreated it can lead to poor outcomes in education and difficulties in developing relationships with others.

What are the symptoms?

  • Overactive/impulsive behaviour
  • Is easily distracted and struggles to complete tasks
  • Has difficulty remembering things and following instructions
  • Being unable to wait their turn
  • Excessive movement
  • Excessive talking
  • Acting without thinking
  • Poor organisational skills
  • Continually losing or misplacing things
  • Carelessness and lack of attention to detail

What are the therapies that can help? 

At Select Psychology we do not diagnose ADHD/ ADD: a diagnosis should only be made following the NICE guidelines with multi-professional involvement.

Prior to seeking therapy we would recommend that an assessment and diagnosis has been sought and a treatment plan identified.

Once a diagnosis is made, select can offer assessments of specific difficulties that may result from coping with living with ADHD such as managing frustration, mood and anxiety difficulties.

We offer a free 15 minute private and confidential telephone consultation.
