Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD / ADHD)
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of Canada’s most common neurodevelopmental disorders, affecting 4-6% of adults and 5-7% of children, or approximately 1.8 million Canadians. In other words, 1 of every 21 people in the country has the disorder. – source
The rise in the number of stimuli we are exposed to in daily life and the rapid pace at which our lives are moving may be significant reasons adults with ADD or ADHD often struggle to focus.
As an adult, your attentional disorder can impact your job, relationships, and ability to manage daily tasks.
We want to work with our patients to understand the challenges of ADHD and how it affects their daily lives. Once we know more about their struggles, we can create an individualized treatment plan to help them overcome these issues.
As you learn to regulate your attention, emotions, and behaviour, you can accomplish what you want and treat yourself with kindness, especially when you stumble.
Get matched with a counsellor that fits your needs.
