COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY
Medication has a positive effect on reducing problems such as lack of concentration, hyperactivity and impulsiveness. However, old patterns are persistent and new behaviour does not come naturally.
In addition to medication, we offer psycho-education in an online group (2 meetings) or individually. Next, there is the option of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Treatment is based on the CBT programme by Steven A. Safren. This programme teaches effective and practical skills and strategies for dealing with ADHD and consists of 12 weekly consultations. In consultation with your treatment provider, you can also choose one of the shorter programmes that focus specifically on cognitions (dysfunctional thoughts) or skills. These programmes consist of 5 sessions. In order to gain maximum benefit from the therapy, it is important to practise at home during the rest of the week as well. The programmes are supported by eHealth modules. You can also make use of a wide range of eHealth modules aimed at specific subjects such as social skills, worrying, mindfulness, substance use, healthy living and recovery.
ADHD is often accompanied by sleep problems. These often diminish as a result of treatment for ADHD symptoms. If this is not the case, you can follow a special sleep therapy as part of the treatment.
