I have a growing understanding of Neurodiversity, especially ADHD & ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) I am an LBGTQ+ Ally.
I am an experienced, BABCP Accredited, Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (CBT) Working previously for the NHS in this capacity but now solely in private practice. I am further trained in Supervision, Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and a Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) Facilitator. Due to working for many years in the caring professions and especially as an Occupational Therapist in the community, I have gained experience of both physical disabilities/long term conditions and the low mood and anxieties that can often accompany them.

People begin their counselling journey for many different reasons. You might be feeling anxious, depressed, have low self-esteem or feel uncomfortable in your own skin and be looking to empower yourself and build your self-confidence. You may be noticing traits about yourself which align with neurodivergence and want to explore this in an affirming space. You may be feeling stuck or on the verge of a life change, be needing space to talk through difficult emotions or experiences in your life, or you might find yourself reliving the same patterns and want to change. Whatever the reason, I can be here to go on this journey with you.

Your past is something you desperately want to forget. You have done your utmost to push it all out of your mind and just get on with your life. But no matter how hard you try, those awful thoughts and feelings follow you wherever you go, catching you out when you least expect it. You feel trapped, powerless to change any of this. You feel out of control, unable to manage the stress in your body. And every time those images pop into your mind, you feel ashamed and guilty. There is this voice inside you telling you you should have done something more, something else. Then it would have all been different.

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.
