I make no clinical-psychological ADHD Diagnostics.
If you are looking for an appropriate drug therapy for ADHD, please contact my colleague Dr. Thomas Platz.
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the behavioral and emotional disorders with onset in childhood and adolescence and often continues into adulthood. Those affected have problems with attention, impulsivity and self-regulation. Sometimes severe physical restlessness (hyperactivity) is also present.
This disorder (ADHD) affects not only children and adolescents, but often adults.
Core symptoms of ADHD include:
Concentration problems, distractibility
Organization problems (chaos in the household, frequent tardiness)
Poor impulse control (e.g., saying or doing something before thinking about it)
Inner restlessness and being driven
Constantly moving (e.g., drumming fingers on table or rocking feet), frequently changing posture
Individuals with ADHD have abnormal blood flow patterns in the brain that explain the symptoms. When we concentrate, blood flow in the brain should ideally increase, especially in the prefrontal cortex. This increased activity allows us to stay on task and think ahead. However, in the brains of people with ADHD, blood flow in the prefrontal cortex decreases. In other words - the harder they try to concentrate, the harder it becomes.
Often there are additional difficulties due to the symptoms:
Difficulties in relationships
How can I help
By means of sLORETA Neurofeedback the brain can learn to generate more activity in the prefrontal cortex when concentrating, making it easier to focus, be calm and collected, and be less distracted as a result of the treatment.
In the course of talk therapy, new behavioral patterns can additionally be worked out, with which social interaction with others becomes easier and more fulfilling.
