ADD/ADHD Counselling

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a mental disorder that is characterized by problems with focus, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. Though it is most commonly diagnosed in children, it can also affect adults. 

The exact cause of ADHD is unknown, but it is believed to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Treatment for ADHD typically includes medication, counseling, and behavior therapy. Prominent figures in the medical community, such as Dr. Gabor Mate, have suggested that ADHD may be caused by trauma or other adverse childhood experiences. 

While further research is needed to confirm this theory, it provides an interesting perspective on the condition. Regardless of its cause, ADHD can be a greatly impairing condition that requires professional treatment.
