ADD/ADHD Counseling, Therapy or Coaching

Childhood ADHD Assessment and Therapy

Adults can skip this section, your information follows.

We all know kids who can’t sit still, who never seem to listen, who blurt out inappropriate comments, or don’t follow instructions no matter how clearly you present them.

While it’s normal for kids to forget their homework, daydream during class or act without thinking, inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity are also signs of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. ADHD makes it difficult for a person to inhibit their spontaneous responses, including everything from movement to speech to assertiveness.

Whether or not your child’s symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity are due to ADHD, they can cause problems if left untreated. Children who can’t focus or control themselves or get into trouble at school often find it hard to make friends. These frustrations can later lead to low self-esteem as well as friction for the whole family.

Treatment can make a dramatic difference in your child’s symptoms. With the right support, your child can get on track for success in all areas of life.

Adults have ADHD/ADD Too – Therapy, Counseling and Coaching

You may not be hyperactive, you may just wish to improve certain things:

The easiest of all transformations is to become who you really are!

If you have ADD you are a person with high levels of energy, usually bright, have a zest for life, ambitious, know and are capable of doing certain things. Yet, you often lack the ability to get things done that require future planning (like make commitments), get bored easily, get distracted by or hyper focused on other things, and as a result have some inner turmoil.

How would you like life to change? Maybe to be in the inner circle, be a hero at work or school, and/or feel comfortable in your own skin!

Here are some of the changes you can make!

In social situations, go from:

  • disappointing self and others to fulfilling commitments
  • withdrawing or having outbursts to responding appropriately
  • being accused of not listening to catching every word
  • being seen as thoughtless to viewed as considerate
  • being bored to intimacy in relationships
  • from interrupting often, or say the wrong thing at the wrong time to patient.

At school or work, go from:

  • held back to moving forward
  • going in circles to staying on course
  • seen as disorganized/chaotic to “got it together”
  • procrastinating, suffering on certain, or needing deadlines on tasks to getting them
    done.

In moments that you are alone with yourself (intrapsychic conflict) from:

  • Feeling stressed or anxious about being on schedule, to making progress
  • From being impulsive, feeling regret to engaging foresight
  • From being upset with self to feeling good
  • From being restless to calm
  • Driven to compulsively engage in bad habits or just wasting time, to being able to stop
  • Thinking others think you are slow or stupid, to feeling confident
  • From thinking less than or more than others to feeling right sized
  • From believing why bother? to knowing you can do it.

The Remedy!

Assessment: Understand yourself from a new point of view, not one that was provided by society. Develop mastery of your mind’s restless, impulsive and compulsive nature. Feel true rewards in life. Make the outside world your ally. Creating the right environment for success. Maybe medication for certain circumstances, and external aids as required. Deal with various negative coping strategies such as substance abuse, addiction, depression, anxiety, avoidance and withdrawal. Establish an internal compass to keep moving forward.
