A Safe Space for ADHD

As a charity, we have always sought to support individuals.  As the years have progressed we have seen more and more individuals with ADHD, whether officially diagnosed or self-diagnosed or even ADHD curious. During this time it has become more and more obvious to us that, not only is there a severe shorting in service provision, there are more and more individuals seeking support. 

As an organisation, almost 90% of our staff and volunteers are neurodivergent. with ADHD being something that many of us have lived experience of.  As individuals's we know that many adults face challenges without the necessary support.  Challenges that can lead to unemployment, mental health issues and social isolation. 

Developing an ADHD service that meets the identified needs of many, has been crucial to addressing the gaps in adult service provision. and, as a charity that is proactive and has the ability to adapt to meet identified needs. ADHD Services N.I. was born.

We work first and foremost from an ethical model that prioritises do not harm, and it is at the forefront of the work we do.  Therefore when we are working with clients or service users with ADHD, we must do additional training to meet them where they are at, as opposed to adapting a one size fits all. (Core trainings such as teaching, social work, counselling, doctors etc is centred around working with neurotypical clients).

We have developed specialised ADHD services based on the latest, ground-breaking research, providing tailored therapeutic support and management strategies for adults.    These services including counselling, coaching and behaviour management programs, are essential for helping individuals maintain employment, achieve personal goals and manage relationships effectively.  

All our staff are qualified professional therapists and all have additional professional training in working with ADHD.

We also provide training about ADHD to other professionals and businesses.  As an organisation, we are professional individuals with lived experience. We can give you an informed view what it is truly like to have ADHD and engage with the outside world. 

 

Our training provides a birds eye view of what is going on for individuals, the types of the struggles they face, the adjustments you may need to make, and how to provide an environment in which ADHDer's can thrive as opposed to survive.  By enhancing your knowledge of ADHD, it gives you the knowledge to encourage productivity, open conversations and a greater understanding of your clients, staff and fellow professionals.  More details for this can be found here.
