ADHD Support

What is ADHD Support?

We provide support for adults who have received a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) or who are struggling with symptoms of ADHD but have not received a diagnosis. The support uses evidence based strategies from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and aim to teach tools to manage symptoms. The tools include time management techniques, organisation skills, and strategies to help focus attention.

What ADHD Support Packages Do We Offer?

We acknowledge that each person has a unique presentation and challenges. Therefore we have developed three different support packages with different levels of structure:

Structured CBT (12 sessions)

  • This package is based on a structured therapy group that aims at teaching skills in a specific way (Solanto, 2011). This therapy takes into account individual challenges but follows a set structure in each session.
  • Each session will also have pre-set topics to be worked through, skills to be taught, and homework to be agreed upon.
  • It is hoped that at the end of the therapy clients will walk away having established new habits and routines that help them feel more confident about managing their ADHD symptoms, particularly difficulties with time management, organisation and planning.

Project based support (6 sessions)

  • This has been developed for adults who have something specific in mind that their ADHD symptoms are preventing them from doing. This could for example be a work project, planning a holiday, or starting an activity.
  • We will agree on a goal in the first session that seems achievable within the timeframe. We will then introduce and practice ADHD management tools deemed useful to work towards that goal. This is thus a practical ‘learn through practice’ approach to develop confidence in managing symptoms.

Tailored support (session number decided after assessment)

  • This is for people who believe that their ADHD symptoms are contributing to other mental health difficulties, such as anxiety and low mood. This intervention focuses on assessing the person’s unique presentation while acknowledging ADHD as a part of the picture.
  • For example, a person may experience high levels of anxiety for various reasons that need to be considered. One of these reasons could be that ADHD symptoms make it hard for the person to meet deadlines. In such a case it would make sense to include working on time-management skills while treating the anxiety.
