ADHD is a condition caused by neurological differences in brain development. These result in neurotransmitter deficiencies that can affect Executive Function skills.

Executive Functions are the mental processes that enable us to organise, direct our attention, remember instructions, and deal with multiple tasks.

Executive Functions

These are skills that help us recall the information we need to get things done, control our emotions and impulses, screen out distractions and keep our attention on a particular activity. They are vital in setting goals and working out ways to meet them, monitoring our progress and responding to changes.

They fall into three main groupings:

Working memory – the ability to retain information and use it to guide decision-making and behaviour.

Inhibitory control – the ability to manage one’s impulses and natural or habitual responses in order to achieve a goal.

Cognitive flexibility – the ability to switch between thinking about different things. Adjusting perspectives and priorities in response to changing circumstances.

Children with ADHD exhibit poor executive functioning. They lose things, get overwhelmed by simple tasks, and are late: late for lessons, late with homework, and late starting assignments. This leads to them being thought of as either lazy, stupid or difficult (or a mixture of all three!) ADHD children are usually none of those things – it just looks like it!

These difficulties can persist into adulthood and affect important life choices. The key thing is that it can be managed with the correct strategies.

Anxiety, for the most part, features prominently in the life of someone with ADHD. This can manifest in a myriad of ways but is often connected to slower processing, faster brain or reduced working memory.

Increased anxiety can often lead to a loss of confidence and a consequent reduction in performance. Anxiety can also result in perfectionism which invariably hinders progress and increases anxiety.

We acknowledge that this is a complex topic, but through our knowledge and empathetic approach, we are able to offer suggestions which can help.


Procrastination is putting off doing something about important tasks, goals or projects even when you know you will be worse off as a result.

Boredom is the enemy. People with ADHD love tasks with high novelty and low repetition, anything that is repetitive and has a goal that you do not care about is extremely hard to start.

We can help you to find ways to break down and get started on challenging tasks!

The challenges of ADHD can cause feelings of shame, anger, and frustration leading to underperformance, depression, and burnout. It need not be this way.
