Relationships and ADHD

ADHD is a chronic neuro-behavioural disorder disrupting a person’s sense of focus, attention and responses. Understanding the effects of ADHD in adult relationships lets you develop approaches that you and your partner can work on. These approaches can help you and your partner interact more positively and not only can it help improve your relationship, but can also give room for each other’s growth.

How Does ADHD Affect Relationships?
As an ADHD partner, you may feel:

  • Unfocused
  • Inattentive to your partner’s need
  • May appear “insensitive” and “irresponsible”
  • Feels nagged and constantly criticized
  • Have a hard time expressing one’s self

As the non-ADHD partner, you may feel:

  • Unloved and ignored
  • The burden of having to do all the chores
  • Confused and resentful about your ADHD partner’s sudden shift of attention
  • Worn-out over time

Instead of giving up to ADHD, embrace a positive change. Reinvent and strengthen your relationship and see the brighter side of the picture. Recognize your partner’s strengths instead of focusing on faults.

Here at The ADHD Centre, we provide Couples Counselling for couples all throughout the UK. We work hand in hand with couples and direct their relationship to focus more on areas that need strengthening and equip them with the necessary real life skills to face their relationship problems head on. The ADHD Centre believes that an effective Couples Therapy service should highly alleviate the negativity brought about by the presence of ADHD in your relationships.

Adult Assessments

We normally ask if it is possible for you to get some collateral history, preferably from someone who has known you since childhood. This helps the doctor to get a better objective understanding of how your ADHD symptoms may have affected you throughout your life.


The sooner you get diagnosed and start on a treatment plan for Adult ADHD the better it will be in terms of making positive life changes. However, it is important to remember that is never too late to get help for Adult ADHD. We have had many clients come to The ADHD Centre in their retirement seeking help and have worked successfully with them to help them get on top of their symptoms so that they are leading a fuller and richer life.

SynopsisADHD HistoryAfter The Diagnosis

Psychology and Psychiatry

Studies show that adults with ADHD have an increased risk of also suffering from other psychological problems: particularly depression, anxiety and substance abuse. This is often because their ADHD went undiagnosed and untreated in childhood and they may be using substances to self-medicate.
