We offer assessment of ADHD to both children and adults.
ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood. It is usually first diagnosed in childhood and often lasts into adulthood. Children with ADHD may have trouble paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviours (may act without thinking about what the result will be), or be overly active.
The assessment session will obtain a detailed history of the individual and a number of questionnaires will be provided. A report is then provided with the findings and a feedback session is offered to go through the report and ask any questions you may have.
Reports have a quick turnaround and are completed within a fortnight.
Enriching Minds Psychology comprises a team of professional psychologists with years of experience in ADHD assessment. What’s more, we provide ongoing counselling to people experiencing the condition, with support services aimed at allowing the individual to express their experiences with the condition and how they would like to manage it.
We then develop a comprehensive strategy designed to reduce or even alleviate some of the ongoing symptoms, with an emphasis on emotional and social engagement. As such, Enriching Minds Psychology has earned a reputation for providing a level of care and support that is both highly compassionate and pragmatic, with a patient-specific service designed to optimise the individual’s standard of emotional and social engagement.
The Enriching Minds Psychology team has a demonstrated passion for providing comprehensive counselling and support for people living with ADHD. We don’t just see the individual as someone with whom to offer counselling. Instead, we see them as a person we can work alongside to help them grow and experience life to the fullest. As such, we are renowned for our highly personable approach to counselling, as well as our desire to achieve real results.
