GROUP PROGRAMS

ADHD: Next Step

Have you just been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)? The amount of information to learn about ADHD can feel very overwhelming. A lack of information about ADHD after a diagnosis can make it more difficult to learn more about yourself and seek support to improve your life. This difficulty accessing support can make the feelings of stigma and grief that can accompany a new diagnosis more difficult to manage.

ADHD Therapy Australia’s “ADHD: Next Step” workshop covers what you need to know after an ADHD diagnosis in a simple and accessible way. In this 90 minute Zoom workshop, our Principal Psychologist, Anthony Brown, who has many years of supporting people with ADHD, and has a lived experience of ADHD, will talk you through the basic information that can be helpful to know.

What can I expect in the first session for therapy?

In the first session, we assess the issues at hand, set goals and start working on our plan. Over the next few sessions, we develop the plan further, building new skills and mindsets. You’re encouraged to practice these new skills in between sessions to develop them further.

What is the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist?

ADHD Therapy Australia is a psychology clinic. Psychiatrists are medically trained to diagnose and prescribe medication. Psychologists work with clients to develop skills that assist in the management of a condition. The research indicates that medication and therapy combined produce the best treatment outcomes for clients with ADHD. If you have an assessment with ADHD Therapy Australia and receive a subsequent diagnosis of ADHD you may then decide to go to a psychiatrist to explore medication options.
