Are you a parent and/or carer with a child, adolescent or adult who has symptoms and/or a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and/or Autism? Do you need to understand the symptoms and gifts more? Do you need help in managing their behaviour and your relationship toward him/her? Do you need help to manage how you feel such as anxiety, depression and stress while caring for him/her? Often changing the way you think and feel will change the level of symptoms of the person you are caring for. Seeing the gifts of the person your are caring for will help him/her feel loved, appreciated and understood which is the fundamental quality every human being desires and deserves. Often, when we hear about a diagnosis we often only see the disorder as it can disrupt lives and change the dynamics of the family. However, these sessions will help you the carer shift perspective, heal from your own symptoms of distress and have a better relationship with the person you are caring for. Josie has been working with carers for over 4 years and has helped many parents understand the disorder so they could have a better perspective of what the person they are caring for involves. She has found that the outcome has change the relationship the client has toward themselves as a carer, parent and with the person they are caring for. Sessions may be funded by the government (conditions apply). To find out more, please contact Josie. Please note, Josie has also helped carers who are caring for people with dementia, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder. She has helped her clients understand the diagnosis and have a better relationship with the person they are caring for. Often the person may also be a husband or wife which can confuse the boundaries of being a carer and intimate partner.
