The so-called attention-deficit/hyperacitivity disorder (ADHD) or hyperkinetic disorder is a common psychiatric diagnosis in childhood and adolescence. Often, it carries into adulthood. However, problems with concentration or self-regulation, feelings of restlessness or impulsive behaviours are not always indicative of ADHD, but may also occur in the context of emotional distress, adaptation difficulties or trauma reactions. At the same time, additional psychological problems, such as fears or addictive behaviours, may arise additionally over time.
I have more than ten years of experience in the work with children, adolescents and adults with ADHD and together we will find individually meaningful solutions for you. Common concerns for a therapy or coaching in the case of ADHD are for instance an improved perception and regulation of ones own emotions, improved interpersonal relationships, flexibility in changing between concentration and relaxation, greater ease and independence in self-organisation, greater academic success and the achievement of ones personal career goals.
Specific developmental disorders like dyslexia often co-occur with ADHD. In order to find a proper therapeutic solution, it is necessary to distinguish to what extent problems with reading or writing arise from concentration difficulties or constitute a primary problem. In the context of an integrative learning therapy, I offer individually suitable help on the basis of a comprehensive interview.
