Teenagers and adults with ADHD experience problems with executive functions (EF). EF is the ability of our brain to analyse information, organize, plan, set schedules, regulate emotions, and solve problems.
Without focussed effort and the support from others, individuals with ADHD keep failing – feeling angry and frustrated with themselves. Limiting self-beliefs such as “I am bad”, “If I can just stop being so lazy my things will work out better”, “I failed because I am dumb or foolish” is often destructive partners.
To prevent this negative inner dialogue getting hard wired, or, to unwire already hard-wired negative self-talk and beliefs about yourself, YOU need to stop and make a decision to change the game. This program is offered to help you understand and manage ADHD symptoms so you can claim your dignity and self-worth through experiences of success in managing your life and reaching your goals.
The information and skills you will learn during this program can form part of a holistic management plan which could include pharmaceutical products prescribed by a medical practitioner, paediatrician, or psychiatrist.
