We have seen such an absolute explosion of children (and adults) in the past 10-20 years with difficulties related to a diagnosis of Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Some of these symptoms range from trouble focusing, staying organized, paying and keeping attention, social difficulties, inability to determine and keep boundaries, sit still, and more. Does this come from a child’s home situation? Is it just their nature? Is there a small amount of inflammation in the brain? Or are there other causes involved? The answers depend on each personal situation.
There are many reasons for children (or adults) to struggle with some of the above-mentioned symptoms. Through the process of psychotherapy, we can unlock some of these causes to facilitate recovery.
Sometimes it’s the parents that have the key to unlock the potential of a child by changing how things happen at home. Other times it’s the child that needs support and insight into what’s driving these difficulties so they can overcome them. Ultimately, it is something that can and will improve with hard work and determination.
