Child ADHD Psychotherapy and Counselling in London
Does your child struggle with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder?
Has your child been diagnosed with ADHD? Do you desperately want to see your child manage better and have more confidence?
Psychological therapy is the recommended first-line treatment in the UK for children with mild to moderate ADHD, and can bring relief to both your child and your family.
ADHD therapy is also helpful even if your child or adolescent has severe ADHD and is taking medication. While medication can help children be less impulsive or hyperactive, it doesn’t teach them what other positive behaviours to choose. Working with a therapist also prepares your child for a future time where they might come off their medication.

Support can make all the difference to your child and your family
Proper support means your child is less likely to develop secondary disorders from the stress of coping with their attention problems, or are more able to manage if these conditions are already present. These can include things like:
- Low self-esteem
ADHD Therapy helps your child manage life better
Working with an ADHD psychologist can offer your child the following:
- Better life skills
- Improved social skills
- Increased self-awareness and self-control
- More able to understand others
- Learn positive decision-making and problem solving
- Recognise and control impulsiveness
- Learn how to relax
- Feel better about themselves
