Relationship Counselling for ADHD in relationships

Medicare & Private Health Insurance rebates available for ADHD counselling

When one or both partners have ADHD, keeping a healthy relationship may be extra difficult. Communication, intimacy, sensory issues, and difficulty understanding each other can be difficult in any relationship.

Undiagnosed ADHD can make these things extra difficult, and if you know you or your partner has ADHD, learning to more easily understand each other in a relationship is crucial.

If you’re not sure and are wondering if ADHD is a part of the picture with your relationship difficulties, this blog article may help.

As we all know, relationships can be difficult and complicated at times, but when one partner has ADHD, many more difficulties usually arise. That’s because ADHD is primarily a Dopamine Deficiency difference, which impacts a person’s organisation, time management, motivation and emotions.

Being able to express your emotions and be emotionally supportive of each other is the lifeblood of a healthy relationship. This can be difficult though, if you are in a neuro-diverse marriage, and over time you can both run out of energy trying to deal with these challenges.

Please note that in terms of diagnosis, some of our psychologists offer a preliminary diagnosis of ADHD. To receive a final diagnosis for ADHD, please contact a psychiatrist specialising in ADHD.

We find many of our adult clients, particularly those whose children have had a formal diagnosis, don’t feel they need a formal diagnosis and are really after specialised help with their relationship issues that involve ADHD, and this is our area of specialty.
