ADHD Therapy or Coaching
  • A lot of people have a very hard time coping with there ADHD disorders. Sometimes people would rather just talk to someone about their problems rather than to treat it with medication. There are main different kind of ADHD groups you could join, or you could go talk to a ADHD Therapist.
  • Joining an ADHD group can help you talk to people who are going though the same thing as you. You can talk to them about how you cope with this disorder, and you can also ask them questions about different things you feel, and how they cope with it.
  • Also a lot of people go to a therapist. An ADHD therapist can talk to you about how you feel, and maybe how you can change it. They can also tell you ways to calm yourself down when you feel anxious, or under a lot of stress.
conclusion
Conclusion

After doing all my research I decided that I feel the life coaching and or meeting with a therapist is the best approach for adults with ADHD. I feel that the medicines, and herbal remedies have to many side effects, and I feel that being an adult you can control yourself more then a child can.
