While each individual is unique, some common challenges associated with ADHD may include:
- Difficulty getting started on academic or workplace tasks.
- Difficulty staying focused and seeing tasks through to completion.
- Difficulty sustaining attention during classes, work meetings, or in conversations.
- Challenges with planning, organization, and time management. Underestimating how long a task will take and over-committing time.
- Difficulty prioritizing tasks or meeting deadlines
- Difficulty knowing where to start and feeling overwhelmed.
My strength based approach also supports individuals to understand their strengths and embrace the aspects of their attention profile that allow them to excel in their daily life. I believe in empowerment through learning and view this balanced approach to psychoeducation as an important step in the journey towards effective symptom management.
I offer psychoeducation as part of every ADHD assessment, and also work with individuals with previous ADHD diagnoses who are ready to take next steps on their (or their child’s) ADHD journey.
ADHD Counselling and Strategies
ADHD can impact various aspects of daily life, including learning, employment, interpersonal relationships, mental health, self-esteem and managing daily responsibilities.
Effective symptom management involves taking many small steps over time, and it can be challenging to know where to start. I work with individuals at various stages of their ADHD journey to help navigate the process.
I work from a holistic, integrated approach to individual counselling, incorporating Mindfulness based practices, elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and evidenced based strategies. I offer individual counselling and strategy sessions to support individuals to identify next steps and to set and work towards their personal goals.
