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 offer Autism and ADHD assessments to adults in person or online .
Have you always felt like you never quite fitted in and life has always been a bit of a struggle for you? It may be that you have felt misunderstood or that other people simply do not 'get' you. Everyday life may have always felt challenging, but the increased demands of adult life have been overwhelming and exhausting. You may worry a lot about tasks or relationships. You may also find that you have differences that are areas of significant strength for you, for example an ability to be creative, to hyper-focus and attend to detail. Would you like to discover if Autism or ADHD form a part of your identity?

Many people have experienced misdiagnosis often with autism or ADHD overlooked and misunderstood by therapists.
My name is Sarah and I have over 20 years experience working as a Psychotherapist in the NHS and in private practice. I specialise in CBT, ACT, Compassion focused approaches and in EMDR. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), includes a range of talking therapies, all based on the idea that thoughts, feelings, what we do, and how our bodies feel, are all connected. If we change one of these we can alter all the others. When we’re low or upset, we often fall into patterns of thinking and responding which can worsen how we feel. CBT works to help us notice thinking styles or unhelpful things that we do so we can live better.

You might have always felt a bit different, like somehow you don’t ‘fit in’. People seeking an assessment might often feel very socially anxious or worry a lot about their social interactions. Maybe you feel more sensitive to your environment than other people and at times overwhelmed, overloaded and exhausted by the demands of everyday life. You might also have noticed strengths that your ‘difference’ brings- being able to ‘hyper’ focus, having dedicated interests and passions or strong values such as a concern for truth and social justice. Do you know or want to discover if you are Autistic or have ADHD?

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.
