ADHD Assessments for Adults

ADHD is a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity or impulsivity that interferes with a person’s development or their ability to carry out their everyday activities. We offer diagnostic assessments for adults who are struggling with symptoms of ADHD where we look at your history and at your life today to help decide if you meet formal diagnostic criteria for ADHD.

If you feel like you are struggling with ADHD, and would like to talk about getting an assessment, please feel free to contact us.

What to Expect

Your first visit to one of our psychologists in Dunedin is a bit like a job interview. The difference is, in this case you are the one doing the interviewing to decide whether they are the right person to help you. For therapy to be successful it’s important that you and your psychologist can work together effectively, so don’t be afraid to ask plenty of questions, and find out as much as you need to make your decision. 

There will be a few other things going on at your first visit to Dunedin Psychology. You’ll be asked to talk a little bit about your history, the issues that have led to you seek help, and the things that you want therapy to help you change.

Next, you and the psychologist will come up with a rough plan for how treatment might proceed if you decide to continue seeing them. You’ll find out what you can expect from future sessions, and your treatment in general. You might receive an estimate of how long treatment might take, but therapy doesn’t always conform to a timetable. Many people find they need more time to work on the problems they’re facing. 

If you decide to continue with future sessions you’ll have a schedule of regular appointments, typically on the same day and time.

There’s no doubt that visiting a psychologist for the first time can be overwhelming and even frightening, and taking that first step towards getting help is an accomplishment to feel good about.
