Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Some evidence – there is enough evidence to indicate that this can be a helpful treatment option.
You might be offered cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) if you are still having significant problems because of your ADHD symptoms while taking medication.
CBT takes place individually and usually involves sessions with a professional once each week.
CBT should try to help you with:
- improving your social skills
- solving problems
- improving your self-control
- building your active listening skills
- managing and expressing your feelings
Treatments outlined on these webpages may not be available in every local area. It’s important that you discuss with your GP or mental health professional the treatment options available to you.
