‘Margaret helped me to open my eyes. Helped me to slow down my brain to a speed where I could interact with it. Helped me to see my true worth within myself. Helped me to lay the foundations of a new road for my life to take, this time empowered and directed by me – thank you’.

I found your insight helpful. It brought new awareness to me as a therapist. It helped in identifying that my client had ADHD which allowed me to alter how I worked with him. To slow the work down, to not get frustrated and to help him understand himself. I am more aware of the signs and indeed how prevalent and undiagnosed these conditions are’.

‘Margaret with your help and guidance we now understand Tom’s behaviour and personality a lot better. Tom has an understanding of himself and is a lot more open and in tune with himself’.

‘Margaret without your help over the past few weeks I don’t know what I would have done. I feel professionals do not see the whole story. If young people who had ADHD understood it they would not feel worthless, stupid, panicked, leading to anxiety and horrible thoughts of self -harm’

‘When you don’t realise you have it, it can sabotage your life. You feel shame, stupid and dumbed down due to an inability to focus. I was so hard on myself and felt so confused and such a failure in school and in work. I am now on medication to help me with focus and I feel relieved, like my brain is unclogged. Understanding my brain helps me take control of it and not be so hard on myself. Also understanding my ADD helps me understand both my parents. I now believe my Mother also has ADD and my Father has ADHD. I now have less anger regarding my Mothers hyper-talking and her constant loud interruptions. I feel sad that they never got the opportunity to understand themselves in the way that I got to understand myself”’.

‘I always struggled with feeling stupid, misunderstood and lost in life – especially academically in school. This turned into anxiety and depression and brought me into counselling with Margaret. Here I discovered this might be ADD and went for specialist diagnosis and was diagnosed with ADHD. I have learned to understand my brain and manage myself differently using tools like planning, time management and meditation to slow my brain down. I have learned to make an effort to stay focused on the task in hand and to do one thing at a time. I now understand and have compassion for myself. My confidence has grown, and I no longer feel stupid’.

‘I have been mystified for years. My partner is so poor with soft skills, not listening, interrupting stumbling over words, poor focus, poor spelling, misinterprets messages, trouble with directions, yet could put his hand to any task, jigsaw crossword puzzle and is precise at DIY. Everything is making sense having had sessions with Margaret and participating on her course. I now understand my partner. I can cut him some slack on the basis that he may not be able to process information as a clear and critical thinker. Since the concept has been suggested by Margaret that he may have ADD I have come to understand many of the behavioural issues. I am really grateful to Margaret for highlighting this to me and wish that when he was in rehabilitation for alcoholism that this was addressed as part of the problem/diagnosis’.

‘Understanding my brain and the fact that I had ADHD has helped me understand my actions and behaviour. I guess the hurt of not understanding my self has made me act out has made me look for an escape that has not always been the right choice. Being able now to understand my brain and what triggers affect me it is something I can use going forward in life. Since I have changed my medication my attention to detail and focus has improved dramatically’.

Being diagnosed with ADHD at 26 was bittersweet, all those years I spend thinking the reason I wasn’t getting on in school was because I wasn’t smart enough – which wasn’t the case. I could have been capable of achieving academically I just had to take a different approach. This feeling of me not being smart enough led me to drop out of school and have negative effects on my mental health. The few tools that I have learned recently to help me with ADHD have had a great impact on my life. I just wish I had learned them sooner’.

‘For more than 50 years I have tried to put a name on a collective set of behaviours that have affected my life and relationships. For example difficultly recalling a story I have just been told, say whatever first comes into my mind, poor focus with verbal detail yet meticulous with figures, pretend to listen attentively, but am distracted and bored with conversation, I get confused taking road directions, and with right and left directions, am a recovering alcoholic, sometimes suffer with eating disorders. I get obsessive with hobbies and activities. I am a nice person but some would say I am a people pleaser. I am working with Margaret to work on these behaviours and find it amazing and helpful that I only found out about ADHD since I met with her for counselling’.

With Margaret’s intervention, knowledge and years of experience I totally changed how I work with clients. Margaret helped me recognise my own control issues, this was key to my change and subsequently how I work with my clients. It allowed me to identify two different types of control patterns...
