Living with ADHD is extremely difficult and complicated. Despite your greatest efforts, things never seem to turn out as planned, and errors frequently occur. You feel ashamed as a result, and you wonder, “Why does this keep happening?” Maybe you have trouble finishing jobs that need attention to detail at work or at school. Perhaps the conditions at home aren’t ideal either. Despite your best efforts, you struggle to keep everything organized. There may be issues in your relationship as well.
ADHD present itself with patterns of inattentiveness and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity. You may experience:
- Lack attention to details or makes careless mistakes
- Trouble sustaining attention
- Does not seen to listen when spoken to directly
- Difficulty with organization
- Often loses personal items
- Avoid or dislikes repetitive tasks or task that require mental efforts
- Easily distracted
- Fidgets with hands or feet
- Difficulty remaining seated
- Often talks excessively
- Difficulty waiting you turn
- Interrupts others
- Blurts out answers before question have been completed
- Acts as if driven by a motor or appears always “on the go”
Are you unsure how to manage these issues? I can help!
In my approach to therapy, I am humanistic and person-centered. Therefore, I allow space for you to explore and understand yourself better. I will also help provide you with the resources you need to cope with your ADHD symptoms, and related issues. Helping someone with ADHD involves two tasks. I will first help you modify your behaviour and acquire new executive functioning abilities such as your ability to prioritize, organize, and complete tasks. Then, we’ll explore any challenges you may have with self-esteem issues and/or self-criticism. Additionally, if you experience emotional dysregulation, I will assist you in learning coping skills to manage distress.
