Once only known as "ADD," the terms is now known as ADHD. Though classified as a "disorder," we prefer to call ADHD a "brain style." ADHD is a neurological condition (often referred to as "neurodiversity") which often causes difficulty in concentration, disruptiveness, making careless mistakes, forgetting things, and excessively talking. Those with ADHD, many of whom were not diagnosed until in adulthood, have spent their lives wondering why they were "different." Sometimes these differences meant struggling in school, struggling to focus, or struggling to "behave."
Therapy for ADHD is shaped along with our clients, with a strong focus on behavioural therapy (often CBT for ADHD, DBT or ACT). Some clients need help getting on track for their professional lives, and the development of planning activities is incorporated into our approach. Others want to unpack the emotional toll of feeling out of step their whole lives, and our focus is placed on emotional identification and regulation.

Many clients suspect they have ADHD but lack the direction for an official diagnoses. In the practice of psychotherapy, we do not diagnose our clients. To receive a diagnosis, please contact your doctor who will have resources for diagnostic centres.

Many of our adult clients are not interested in medication, and instead want to incorporate a therapeutic approach to help manage their ADHD symptoms. At Impart, we employ integrated tactics that include a holistic concept of our client's treatment that incorporates behavioural focused therapies.
