Adult ADHD – Paul Carver

Paul Carver    Quals: BSc, MSc, PG Dip Hlth Psych

Adult ADHD: ADHD symptoms don’t necessarily disappear in adulthood, although Adult ADHD is seldom diagnosed in primary care. Adults can have problems with memory, getting organised, concentrating, and keeping focused on things. In addition interpersonal problems caused by irritability and impulsivity can be distressing. Add to this the energy “crashes”which can occur after a person has put everything into trying to keep going at work, and life can become unworkable.

Paul-Caver-300x225Counselling Approach: Paul has a comprehensive non-drug based solution that can turn the whole situation around. It involves:

  • Standardised testing to make a diagnosis and pinpoint areas of difficulty;
  • Plant-based natural medication that can be as effective as stimulants but without the side effects (such as insomnia);
  • ADHD-specialised memory and organisation tools;
  • CBT-ADHD, a special type of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) adapted for ADHD that is effective in helping with lack of confidence, self-esteem issues and depression that often accompany ADHD;
  • Biofeedback, a recognised treatment that can improve focus and concentration.
