Whether you grew up knowing you were autistic/ADHD or realised later in adulthood, it can have an influence on your ability to connect, express emotions & to let go of neurotypical (NT) standards & thrive as a neurodivergent (ND) adult. Navigating these difficulties can lead to feeling disconnected & split from oneself, burnt-out, & being confused about the future. Counselling is a great place to build a secure sense of self that helps you feel calm & centred even through the most difficult times. Together we can heal the disconnection, build coping strategies to recover from burn-out & develop strength from the challenges you face.

I believe that we all have an innate capacity to grow and change, and that sometimes we need to explore our personal stories to get this moving again. As children we make decisions about ourselves based on our environment; sometimes these beliefs and decisions are unkind and can leave us feeling stuck, depressed or not "good enough". Therapy helps to update these beliefs, letting go of what isn't (and may never have been) ours to carry. I have worked extensively with depression, anxiety, trauma and abuse. I currently also practice as a group therapist in an addiction service. I am BACP & UKCP registered.

Hi, I'm Stephanie, and I'd like to help you experience a more fulfiIling life. At the moment, there is so much emphasis and pressure on people to achieve and be productive every day, to strive towards visible high standards constantly, to the point of exhaustion. Are you highly critical of yourself? Do you find yourself unable to try new things in case you fail? Do you focus on ways to improve things about yourself that other people can see & validate - your appearance, your body shape, your job, studies and even hobbies? Do you find yourself unable to switch off and relax? Expect things of yourself that you never would of others?

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.
