    1. Dear Louisa, he may start by doing an appointment with a psychologist to identify and get a proper diagnosis. S/he will guide him accordingly. In the meantime we can offer support both to him and your family. Send us your details by sms on 79706364 and we will get back to you shortly.

  3. Hi yesterday me and my husband went to a counsellor. At the end of the session the counsellor suggested that my husband seeks a phsycologist as she thinks that he might suffer from ADHD. We both are working very hard to keep our relationship going but his anger issues, his impulsive behaviour is not helping at all. Can you please suggest any group sessions that I can attend so I can learn how to deal with it.

    1. Hello Antonella. We hold a meeting for adults with ADHD every month. Today is in fact this month’s meeting and is going to be held at skyparks business centre adjacent to the airport. You can call or message Pamela on 79706364 if your husband and yourself want to attend. For more info kindly contact her too so maybe we can set up a private meeting if necessary. In the meantime if you want some online information, on our site you can find an information booklet on ADHD on the resources tab and also links to videos and other good sites full of articles and info.

  5. Good afternoon, I have a boy of almost 5 years going to year 1. I always had suspicion that he is a little hyper. He doesn’t stay sitting down for more than 15 minutes and when he is doing something he get annoyed after a few minutes such drawing and Writing just 5 letters. When he get annoyed he starts screaming and throwing the things.He talks a lot and always on the move. This last year and a half, I also noticed a lot of anger in him. When you tell him something that he does not like, he starts shouting and showing a lot of anger that even he starts to throw the things that he finds infront of him. When I talked to the pediatrician when he was young he said that he is not hyper and when I talked to our family doctor a few months ago he said that he Doesn’t have any problem but he has a lot of energy that he needs to get out. I’m still worried cause infront of other people that he doesn’t know he is like an angel but when you tell him something no or wrong, he is like a switch and changes completely. With whom I can start to see if my son has a condition or not, or if there are any tests he can do. Sorry for being too long. Thanks in advance. Sharon
