ADHD In Adults

Private Adult ADHD Assessments

Initial ADHD screening is free to establish your suitability for the full assessment: school reports if available, completion of ADHD screening & Pre-assessment forms, and a GP brief medical summary. If Adult ADHD seems unlikely, we would recommend an Initial Mental Health Assessment instead.

Adult ADHD

ADHD in adults, also known as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is a neurodevelopmental condition that affects individuals well into their adulthood. 

Characterized by persistent patterns of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, adult ADHD can significantly impair multiple aspects of daily life. Those afflicted often struggle with maintaining focus on tasks at hand, making it challenging to fulfill professional responsibilities and meet personal goals. 

They may frequently find themselves easily distracted by external stimuli or internal thoughts, leading to difficulties staying organized and completing tasks efficiently. 

Adults with ADHD might experience restlessness and an intense need for stimulation that can manifest as fidgeting or excessive talking during meetings or social interactions. The impulsive nature associated with this condition further contributes to the challenges faced by those affected; they may act without considering consequences or interrupt others during conversations unintentionally. 

Despite its unique set of struggles, it is important to recognize that adult ADHD can also bring strengths such as creativity and innovation when properly managed through therapy techniques like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or medication interventions tailored specifically for adults living with this condition.

Free ADHD Testing

ADHD testing, a crucial diagnostic tool within the realm of mental health, is designed to assess individuals who may be exhibiting symptoms consistent with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. 

Conducted by trained professionals such as psychologists or psychiatrists, ADHD testing aims to provide a comprehensive evaluation that thoroughly examines an individual's cognitive functioning, attention span, impulse control, and behavioral patterns. 

ADHD Symptoms

ADHD symptoms refer to a complex array of behavioral patterns that are commonly associated with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. Individuals exhibiting ADHD symptoms often struggle with sustaining attention, becoming easily distracted or losing focus amidst tasks or conversations. Additionally, they may experience impulsivity, engaging in impromptu actions without considering the potential consequences. 

Hyperactivity is another prominent feature, as individuals with ADHD Symptoms tend to fidget excessively, have difficulty staying seated for extended periods, and seem constantly on the move. These symptoms can lead to challenges in various domains such as academic performance and social interactions.

ADHD Diagnosis

ADHD diagnosis is a multifaceted process that requires careful assessment and consideration by qualified professionals. The initial step involves gathering comprehensive information from various sources, including parents, teachers, and the individual themselves. 

Utilizing standardized rating scales and questionnaires, clinicians evaluate attention deficits, hyperactivity levels, impulsivity tendencies, as well as specific behavioral patterns observed across different settings. 

In conjunction with this data collection phase, a thorough medical examination is conducted to rule out any underlying physical conditions that may mimic ADHD symptoms.

ADHD Treatment

ADHD Treatment encompasses a multifaceted approach aimed at mitigating the challenges faced by individuals with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The primary objective of ADHD treatment is to enhance self-control, improve focus, and foster overall well-being in affected adults. 

Pharmacological interventions play a significant role in managing symptoms, with stimulant medications often prescribed as first-line treatment due to their ability to regulate neurotransmitter levels in the brain. Additionally, non-stimulant medications are available for those who do not respond favorably or experience intolerable side effects from stimulants. 

Alongside medication, behavioral therapy forms an integral part of ADHD treatment by teaching coping strategies, organizational skills, and social techniques that empower individuals to better manage impulsive behaviors and impulsivity-related difficulties.
