What kinds of therapy help with ADHD?
There are many evidence based approaches to help people manage their lives with ADHD. Medication is only one approach and needs to be complemented with other strategies.
Many people prefer to seek out alternative treatments to medication like psychotherapy, neurofeedback or mindfulness training.
Neurofeedback trains the brain through strengthening activity of the frontal lobes with PIR neurofeedback or changing brain wave patterns that increase focus with EEG neurofeedback.
People who struggle with ADHD also suffer from higher rates of anxiety and depression and can benefit from talk therapy that will help them understand and accept the challenges that people living with ADHD often face. This can be particularly helpful for adults who are faced with a later diagnosis of ADHD and may need help adapting to the diagnosis or managing relationships.
ADHD coaching can also help people with behavioural strategies that help them stay organized and focused.
