Starting ADHD therapy

What is ADHD therapy?

At Thriveworks, we offer ADHD therapy, which is an effective treatment for managing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms such as inattention, inability to sit still, and lack of self-control. It can be used as an alternative to ADHD medication or used in tandem.

How does ADHD therapy work?

ADHD therapy works by using behavioral interventions — focusing on helping the individual develop organization skills, improve time management, and work on adaptive behaviors. A range of therapies are effective in helping people manage their ADHD and, sometimes, both individual and family therapy are important, particularly when the individual with ADHD symptoms is a child.

Symptoms of ADHD

Common symptoms of ADHD include:

  • Inattention and difficulty focusing on tasks
  • Impulsivity and acting without thinking
  • Hyperactivity or restlessness

Can ADHD develop as a coping mechanism?

ADHD is not a coping mechanism—but is instead affected by both genetics and environmental factors. The skilled therapists at Thriveworks in Mt Pleasant, SC know how to treat the unique triggers and stressors that may influence the severity of someone’s ADHD symptoms.

Can someone with ADHD lead a normal life?

Yes—many individuals with ADHD live successful, ‘normal’ lives. Individuals with ADHD are not abnormal.

What kind of therapy is best for ADHD?

Common approaches to ADHD therapy include medication management, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), behavioral therapy, psychoeducation, and parent training.

Is ADHD counseling conducted in person or online?

ADHD counseling is conducted both in person and online, depending on the individual’s preferences and their therapist’s availability.

How long does ADHD counseling last?

The length of ADHD therapy can differ based on individual requirements and treatment objectives, spanning from a few weeks to several months or extending further, contingent on progress and personal needs.

ADHD Counseling in Mt. Pleasant, SC—Counselors, Therapists

ADHD, or Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, is a condition that can be difficult to understand and manage. The symptoms are varied and sometimes non-specific. The disorder is becoming increasingly more common in children. If your child is exhibiting symptoms or has been diagnosed with ADHD, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Mt. Pleasant for help.

How Do I Know if My Child Has ADHD?

For a child to be diagnosed with ADHD, they must exhibit at least six of the following symptoms for a period of six months or more. The combination of these symptoms generally interferes with the child’s everyday functioning and development. If your child exhibits a number of these behaviors, meeting with a therapist at Thriveworks Mt. Pleasant Counseling is a good step to take.

  • Often fails to pay attention to details or makes careless mistakes
  • Has difficulty maintaining focus or concentrating
  • Does not listen when spoken to directly
  • Does not follow through on instructions
  • Has difficulty organizing tasks and activities
  • Dislikes and avoids engaging in tasks that require sustained mental effort
  • Often loses things
  • Often becomes easily distracted
  • Has difficulty remaining seated when expected to
  • Talks excessively
  • Has difficulty waiting their turn

Trying to help a child struggling with symptoms of ADHD can easily cause frustration. Without treatment, the disorder can have a negative impact on the child: low grades, self-esteem issues, problems getting along with peers, poor self-image, anxiety, and disciplinary problems at school.

How We Can Help a Child with ADHD

The therapists at Thriveworks Mt. Pleasant Counseling are specially trained to help you and the child with ADHD understand the disorder. This is an essential step in learning how to manage impulses and other problematic behavior caused by ADHD. We work with the child to help them strengthen social skills, improve their ability to focus, and build positive peer relationships. Many types of therapies can be used to treat ADHD. Medication is not needed in every case. Behavior therapy is often used to treat children with the disorder. This type of therapy helps to reduce negative behaviors and increase positive ones. Over time, behavior therapy can eliminate problem behaviors entirely. Behavior therapy also gives parents skills and strategies to help their child who has ADHD.

My therapist at Thriveworks, Susan, is warm and and relatable. I am a late-diagnosed autistic woman. I am basically now learning what everyone else learned in kindergarten. I have a history of broken marriages and jobs I was invited to leave because I didn't fit in, to put it mildly. She has helped me in so many ways, and I can now see decisions I made that I thought were just what had happened to me. I feel much more capable and hopeful now. I wish I could have met her years ago. I have gone to many therapists over the years, but now I can see how I can feel hopeful about my life and my relationships with my daughters and my grandchildren.

Susan is my Thriveworks therapist. She is helping me set boundaries and make better choices. I am learning a lot from her. Having Asperger's, I often can be quite blunt. I am gradually learning how to say less but make better connections. She
