Learn to manage adult ADHD with the help of a therapist.
Struggling to complete tasks or focus?
Attention deficit disorder is known to affect around 4% of adults in the UK, but what exactly is ADHD? ADHD is the result of a chemical imbalance within the brain that can in turn have an effect upon attention, impulsivity and can cause hyperactivity.
The three main types of ADHD are known as the ‘combined type’ (a combination of inattention and hyperactivity); ‘predominately hyperactive’ (a high level of impulsivity and hyperactivity) and finally, ‘predominately inattentive’ (low levels of attention).
How do I know if I have ADHD?
If you experience difficulties in being able to focus and complete tasks, feel that your disorganisation is having a negative impact on your work and relationships, or that you become hyper focussed at seemingly the wrong times, then you may be suffering from ADHD. Impulsive behaviour and emotional difficulties are also symptoms of the condition and can make life increasingly stressful.
Suffering from ADHD in adult life can cause many diverse complications and difficulties, such as issues at work, maintaining relationships, managing your finances, and mental health problems.
Using online therapy to treat ADHD
Medication can alleviate some of the symptoms of ADHD, such as reducing hyperactivity. However, online therapy can offer you a way of managing and learning to cope effectively throughout your adult life. With the help of a counsellor or psychotherapist, you can overcome the side effects that are often associated with ADHD.
By targeting issues such as, anxiety, relationship problems, time management and low self-esteem, you and your therapist can create strategies that can serve to allow you to live an easier life. This is accomplished by centering treatment around ‘skills-based therapies’. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), establish different ways of thinking.
