Our treatment

Cognitive behavioral therapy

In Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), you work to transform your old behavior patterns into new behaviors and skills that help you function better.
Medication has a good effect on reducing concentration problems, your hyperactivity and impulsivity. But your old behavior patterns are stubborn and new behaviors are not learned overnight.
In addition to medication and psychoeducation, there is the option of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). When you are given the indication to take CBT, it consists of a course that focuses specifically on your cognitions or skills. The program consists of five sessions. It is also possible, by indication, to follow Steven A. Safren’s CBT program. This program teaches you effective and practical skills and strategies to cope with ADHD and consists of 11-12 sessions. We aim to schedule these sessions weekly at a set time.
To maximize the effect of therapy, it is important to practice at home as well. The program is supported by the eHealth modules. You can also use a wide range of eHealth modules yourself focused on specific topics such as social skills, brooding, mindfulness, substance use, healthy living and recovery.

Sleep problems

ADHD is often accompanied by sleep problems. Sleep problems may be lessened by treatment for ADHD symptoms. If not, you may take “sleep therapy” as part of your treatment.

Sleep Therapy

Scientific research shows that sleep therapy is the most effective and safe treatment for many sleep disorders, such as insomnia (long-term insomnia) and delayed sleep phase disorder, for example. We officially call this Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-i) or “sleep therapy.”
Sleep therapy not only improves the quality of sleep, but also affects overall well-being and daily functioning.
Sleep therapy is an online group treatment consisting of 6 sessions. These sessions consist of: psychoeducation about sleep and the biological clock and treatment methods (including stimulus control, sleep restriction, challenging irrational thoughts about sleep). Registration of sleep is an important part of therapy. The advantage of a group is that you can find recognition and support in the process with group peers. It is a short and intensive treatment that requires dedication and motivation on the part of the participant but, as a result, it can be very rewarding and we have had good experiences with it.

I finally understand how my sleep works! I am not there yet, but I am now more confident in my sleep for the future.
