ADHD and Autism Support

Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD Support)

ADHD is a neurological condition, caused by a deficiency of a neurotransmitter called Norepinephrine  (closely linked to Dopamine), affecting four areas of the brain: the prefrontal cortex, limbic system, basal ganglia, and reticular activating system.  Individuals can experience problems with inattention, emotional regulation, impulsivity, elective function, time management, organisation and hyperactivity.  


People with ADHD may also have Sensory Processing Disorder and many other co-morbid conditions

such as anxiety, depression, addiction problems, eating disorders, sleep disturbances and lots more.  


ADHD is genetic and hereditary so is likely to run in families, furthermore research indicates that ADHD is a condition you are born with, and is lifelong.  

You cannot 'get' it but trauma and environmental factors can exacerbate symptoms.  

It is, without doubt, a challenging condition.

Autism Support

Autism, known as Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), is a developmental condition resulting from neurological 

differences in the brain.  People who have been diagnosed with ASD are likely to suffer from a few or all of

these symptoms: sensory processing issues, anxiety and depression, obsessive routine and interests,

and can often struggle without routine. 

 Additionally, people with ASD may also struggle with eye contact and have under-developed skills in verbal and

non-verbal communication, such as reading peoples' body language, making interaction with others difficult.  These underdeveloped skills can make a person with ASD appear to lack empathy or sympathy, as these rely on a two

dimensional emotional experience on both a cognitive and emotional level, for instance, visual cue’s on a cognitive level.  Alternatively, a person with ASD might be overwhelmed by someone’s emotions, which can be confusing causing them to shutdown and withdraw.


Not all people with Autism experience everything that is described here and traits can vary within the spectrum. 

Thirty minute meet and greet sessions available.
