Our approach to diagnosing and treating ADHD is non-judgemental, sensitive and caring. We’ll provide you with clear guidance and make the process as simple and straightforward as possible. We’re committed to helping you through every step of your journey, from understanding the diagnosis to managing your symptoms. See below for more guidance on the process of an ADHD assessment and treatment.
The diagnosis of ADHD needs to be made by a specialist with expertise in carrying out ADHD assessments, generally a psychiatrist or a psychologist. An ADHD assessment generally takes two hours. We will send you some forms to complete before your consultation, and if appropriate, you will receive your diagnosis and if you wish, a personalised treatment plan at the end of the appointment.
We offer private ADHD assessments with our trained specialists both face to face at our clinic in London or via online video assessments.
We offer a range of evidence-based treatment options for ADHD including psychoeducation, talking therapy, medication (optional), nutrition and lifestyle changes so that you can choose what approach suits you best. When developing your treatment plan, we’ll also consider important additional factors such as your school or work environment, personality, relationships and what’s meaningful in your life.
After the ADHD assessment, if you want to start treatment using medication, you generally need one or two follow up sessions to review your medication. These are usually 20-40 minutes long. We can then usually issue prescriptions without a session (at the discretion of your psychiatrist).
