Hi – I’m Lucy, a neurodivergent Provisional Psychologist who works with other Autistic, ADHD and neurodivergent people (adults and teenagers). My calling in life is to support you in understanding and embracing your neurodivergent identity - and help you work out what support you need to better cope in the neurotypical world. As a late-identified neurodivergent person, I understand how neurotypical systems and organisations misunderstand our communication style, sensory needs, and executive functioning. And as a Provisional Psychologist, I understand the skills, strategies and fierce boundaries you will need to get by in this world.

I'm a holistic, eclectic and creative mental health social worker and therapist intent on helping my clients feel safe to be seen. I focus on the neurophysiology of safety, circadian rhythms, biohacking and of releasing and integrating old emotions. I support a ‘waking down’ into the body and it’s different systems to connect to your inner guidance and to elicit soul-filled, creative solutions. I also focus on developing healthy boundaries with self and others to make meaning of the past whilst cultivating a life of connection and self-empowerment.

I specialise in assisting children, adolescents and adults to heal and transform from trauma, early attachment disruptions, overwhelm/burnout, emotional dysregulation, anxiety, depression, relational challenges, disordered eating, self-esteem/identity issues and life transitions. I support people to not only gain insight about their struggles, but to transform at an embodied level through processing negative self-beliefs, stuck emotions and/or unhelpful behaviours. These may be experienced as distressing symptoms or experiences that sometimes do not make sense.

ADHD Counsellors

When should I seek treatment for ADHD?

You should seek treatment for ADHD if you consistently have difficulty with attention, hyperactivity, or impulsivity that interferes with your daily life. Symptoms of ADHD include the inability to sustain attention during tasks, difficulty organizing tasks and activities, being easily distracted, frequent fidgeting or squirming, and talking or interrupting excessively. If these symptoms interfere with your career, academics, or relationships—for example, consistently failing to complete professional projects on time—you should seek an evaluation for ADHD.

How does treatment for ADHD work?

Effective treatment for ADHD often consists of medication, behavioural therapy, and lifestyle changes. Stimulant medications such as Adderall and Ritalin work by altering levels of neurotransmitters in the brain; higher levels of dopamine and norepinephrine are known to improve attention and focus. Therapy works by helping people with ADHD understand the condition, discuss their areas of difficulty, and develop behavioral strategies to manage their symptoms. In some cases, modifying one’s diet and exercise can also help improve symptoms.

How long does treatment for ADHD take?

It’s tough to give an exact time frame because everyone varies. In terms of medications, stimulants begin to work very soon after you take them, generally within the hour. It may take time to identify the right medication and dosage, but the medication itself is fast-acting. In terms of therapy, it takes time to develop skills and put them into practice, but you will likely see improvements within a few weeks or months.
