What is ADHD?
ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterised by symptoms of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Individuals with ADHD may struggle with organisation and time management whilst exhibiting restlessness and trouble concentrating. The condition often emerges in childhood and persists into adulthood, affecting academic, occupational, and social functioning.
How can Portobello Behavioural Health help?
We work alongside psychologists and psychiatrists as appropriate to provide practical support alongside any medication regime that is in place. Through therapy or coaching (or a combination of both) we have an excellent track record of helping develop better coping mechanisms, improve social skills, tackle time management issues and address co-occurring disorders.
Our approach is always sensitive and led by the tolerance of the client. This means that sessions will often start shorter for either therapy or coaching and build up over time. Through regular check-ins and ongoing accountability, we can support clients to better understand their condition and implement strategies that help them cope.
