ADHD comes with a unique set of challenges for everyday life, relationships, and success in work and education, for those who experience it.
The aim of behavioural therapy is to enhance self-awareness and therefore learn new patterns of behaviour which will help with gaining order to day-to-day life with symptoms such as inability to concentrate, not making rash decisions.
Although there is no cure for ADHD and ADD, there are ways to work with difficulties. Adults are often offered medicine, although therapies can also be of benefit. For example, Psychoeducation, Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Schema Therapy. These can teach individuals how to better manage symptoms and day to day challenges. Other more explorative forms of therapy may be useful for working through difficult feelings which are impacted by the condition and go on to affect it.
Often a combination of medicine and therapy is recommended, however it is important to learn about and carefully consider the implications of each for yourself. Other things that might help include reviewing diet and supplementation, something Phinity therapists can offer. We recommend weekly sessions, which last 50 minutes.
We offer ADHD and ADD support in Birmingham. Phinity Therapy also serve other cities and countries through our network of qualified therapists. Online therapy is also available, catering for those who cannot reach our clinic or have busy schedules.

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental condition that is sometimes referred to as hyperkinetic disorder. It is less diagnosed in women than men, and around 3-5% of children and 2% of adults are thought to be impacted by it. In the UK, ADHD only became recognised as a valid condition in 2000 when the National Institute of Clinical Excellence released their report on the condition.
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental condition that occurs due to differences in the brain, otherwise known as neurodiversity. Neurodivergent people who are ‘on the spectrum’ will often experience problems with social communication and interaction. Neurotypical people (that is, those who do not have an ASD) may find it difficult to understand the behaviours of those affected by autism.
Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder that is characterised by extreme mood swings that oscillate between mania and deep depression which is why it was once known as manic depression. The word ‘mania’ comes from Greek and means ‘madness’. To people who witness it, bipolar looks like extreme highs and lows.
Life is challenging, so it’s normal to feel low at times. If however, you’re feeling sad, apathetic, and hopeless for a prolonged period, you may be depressed, and this impacts functioning. And although depression is a natural response to difficulties, it can be treated.
Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress which is experienced by everyone at some time or another. However when anxiety becomes frequent and intense, this might be indicative of generalised anxiety disorder (GAD). If this sounds like you, read on to learn more.
