HA Counselling Provides a Safe And Supportive Environment For Clients With ADHD To Explore Their Challenges, Emotions, And Goals

For those living with ADHD, these daily struggles can feel like an insurmountable mountain. ADHD presents distinctive challenges, but with the right knowledge and support, individuals with ADHD can lead fulfilling lives.

At HA Counselling, we understand the profound impact ADHD can have on individuals and families, and we’re here to provide support and guidance on the journey towards managing and thriving with ADHD.

What is ADHD?

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects children and adults. It manifests in distinct ways, primarily characterised by difficulties sustaining attention, controlling impulsive behaviours, and managing hyperactivity. While ADHD often begins in childhood, it can persist into adolescence and adulthood.

ADHD presents in three primary subtypes:

Predominantly Inattentive Presentation

Individuals with this subtype struggle with maintaining focus, following through on tasks, and organising activities.

Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Presentation

Those with this subtype exhibit symptoms of hyperactivity and impulsivity, which may include restlessness, difficulty sitting still, and acting without thinking.

Combined Presentation

Individuals with the combined presentation experience a mix of inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive symptoms.

The exact cause of ADHD is multifaceted and may involve genetic, environmental, and neurological factors. It’s essential to recognise that ADHD is not a result of laziness, lack of willpower, or poor parenting—it is a legitimate medical condition that requires understanding and support.

Symptoms of ADHD

ADHD symptoms can manifest differently in children and adults. Common symptoms include:


  • Difficulty focusing on tasks or sustaining attention
  • Frequent careless mistakes in school or work
  • Trouble organising tasks and activities


  • Restlessness, fidgeting, or tapping hands or feet
  • Inability to stay seated in situations where it is expected
  • Excessive talking or interrupting others


  • Difficulty waiting one’s turn
  • Impulsive decisions without considering consequences
  • Interrupting conversations or intruding on others
