Confronting the diagnosis of AD(H)D in adulthood is profound and enlightening at the same time. This for yourself but also for your partner or other family members.
First, it is important to identify and address the positive effects. When channeled correctly, this energy can also help you as an adult in certain areas.
Through psychoeducation and talk therapy, initial work is done on acceptance of this enduring vulnerability. These conversations may take place, with your permission, in the presence of a confidant (partner, parent, close friend or person involved). Acceptance and awareness takes some time. So we give this the space it needs.
After this (or in parallel) we work on learning and training new skills, control over thoughts, behaviors and/or impulses, repairing relationships and/or building new constructive relationships, making conscious choices and dealing with your pitfalls. We redefine identity and the positive attributes that help define it. In short, you will learn to get the best out of yourself!
In the workplace… Occupational problems are addressed with the greatest effectiveness in the workplace itself. For this, we move (as far as possible) to your workplace to work with real-life situations through a direct approach. These are identified, patterns are uncovered, communication skills are honed, and then very targeted work can be done to change behavior. Management, supervisors and close colleagues can be involved with your permission, so that your process can be supported as broadly as possible and your workplace no longer forms an obstacle, e.g. by adapting movement possibilities, variation in tasks and support in time management, planning, organization and administration.
