COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY
Medication is effective in reducing concentration problems, hyperactivity and impulsivity. However, old patterns persist and new behaviour doesn’t come about by doing nothing. Besides medication we offer psychoeducation in an online group (2 gatherings) or individually. Thereafter it is possible to receive cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). If the indication is to follow CBT, this consists of a compact trajectory that focuses specifically on cognitions or skills. These programs consist of 5 sessions. There is also the possibility to follow the CBT-program by Steven A. Safren. This program teaches effective and practical skills and strategies to deal with ADHD and consists of 11-12 sessions.
To benefit optimally from the therapy it is important to practice at home during the rest of the week. The programs are supported by eHealth modules. Also you can use a wide selection of eHealth modules which focus on specific subjects such as social skills, overthinking, mindfulness, substance abuse, healthy lifestyle and recovery.
ADHD is often accompanied by sleeping problems. These often become less prominent as a result of the treatment of ADHD symptoms. If this is not the case, you can follow a special therapy on the subject of sleep as part of your treatment.
