Welcome to ADHD Counselling UK
This website has been founded by necessity and from my own experience seeking ADHD support.
Like many of the stories I have heard in my work with ADHD clients, my own ADHD went somehow undetected until a combination of luck, timing, and stumbling across some information led to diagnosis which completely re-framed my past. Angry and mournful for a life which could have been I sought counselling support, but found only long waiting lists and an alarming lack of understanding of the condition.
A BACP and NCS-registered counsellor myself, my openness about my diagnosis has seen me contacted by more people seeking ADHD support than I could ever accommodate, diagnosed or not, each affected in their own way but joined by stories of unfulfilled potential and alienation. So, the idea for this website was born.
This website contains information about ADHD and a directory of counsellors specifically screened for either their lived or working experience of ADHD and neurodiversity. I have designed this site to be simple and ADHD-friendly, but if you have any feedback please send an email – I’d love to hear from you, and am always seeking to make this site as accessible and user-friendly as possible.
If you’re here to learn more about ADHD, please head to our about page, which is packed with information about the condition, including a video of a recent podcast I was on, talking specifically about ADHD.
On this page you will also find details of other projects and websites, including a link to ADHD support groups I host in partnership with the charity ADHD UK.
