A.Each ADHD adult has a different set of challenges. You chose what to focus on and I help shift your thoughts into plans and actions.
I want our sessions to be fluid and effective, after all I’m ADHD and get bored easily! I want to help you deliver long-term, consistent results. Most ADHD adults are perfectionists and self-critical, so we will focus on your strengths and work on the problem areas that you identify.
We ask questions like “do you have to do this task?”, “is it realistic?”, “could someone help you or even do it?”, “what’s been stopping you?”, “what would make it easier?”, “how can you make it less overwhelming?”.
We work out the problem, work on motivation and need, plan what needs to be planned and develop strategies that work for you. We make sure we define ones that are sustainable and actionable. You try it out, like an experiment. You give it the benefit of the doubt, a new behaviour or routine for maybe a few weeks and we discuss whether it is working in following sessions.
With time and some refining it works, new habits form, new approaches work well and you start to make the progress you want.
