What is ADHD (Adult)?


Healing Mind, Body and Spirit!

ADHD isn't just a childhood problem. If you find yourself constantly late, disorganised, forgetful,overwhelmed by your responsibilties and emotions, you may have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), previously known as attention deficit disorder (ADD). ADHD affects many adults, and its wide variety of frustrating symptoms can hinder everything from your relationships to your career. 

If you were diagnosed with childhood ADHD or ADD, chances are you’ve carried at least some of the symptoms into adulthood. But even if you were never diagnosed as a child, that doesn’t mean ADHD can’t affect you as an adult. ADHD often remains unrecognized throughout childhood. This was especially common in the past, when very few people were aware of it. Instead of recognizing your symptoms and identifying the real issue, your family, teachers, or others may have labeled you as a dreamer, troublemaker, or just a bad student. Alternately, you may have been able to compensate for the symptoms of ADHD when you were young, only to run into problems as your responsibilities increased as an adult. You may have to juggle a lot of different responsibilties, such as pursuing a career, raising a family, running a household, which increase the demand on your abilities to organize, focus, and remain calm. This can be challenging for anyone, but if you have ADHD, it can feel overwheling and impossible.The good news is that no matter how overwhelming it feels, the challenges of attention deficit disorder are manageable. With education, support, and creativity, you can learn to manage the symptoms of adult ADHD, even turn some of your weaknesses into strengths. It’s never too late to turn the difficulties of adult ADHD around and start succeeding on your own terms.

How can psychotherapy help?

Following on a psychiatric assessment, medication may be prescribed. Howeevr, it is recommended that sufferers have the support of psychotherapy as well. Working with a psychotherapist who specialises in ADHD can help you deal with the many side effects of the disorder.
