How can counseling benefit people with ADHD?

Both individual and family counseling help in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). ADHD can take a toll on emotions and self-esteem. And it can affect everyone in the family as well. A good therapist can help ADHD sufferers work through their feelings, so they understand themselves and feel better about themselves. And a family therapist can help family members identify and work through issues related to ADHD.

People with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may need counseling to improve their self-esteem and help them express their feelings better. And because ADHD affects the whole family, parents, siblings, and spouses may also benefit from counseling. Counseling can help undo some of the frustration and anger that often come from living with a person with untreated ADHD.
