We understand that finding the most effective and reliable ADD/ADHD treatment plan for your child is of utmost importance. We are currently offering initial 2-hour assessments with our specialist Child Psychiatrists, either online or at our Harley Street clinic, at the reduced rate of £495.
If your child is experiencing difficulty concentrating, exhibiting impulsive behaviour or lacks self-control, this could be a sign that they are suffering from childhood ADD - Attention Deficit Disorder. Should they also be experiencing periods of hyperactivity, perhaps constantly fidgeting, pacing or nail biting, they may be suffering from ADHD - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
These neurodevelopmental conditions commonly occur in early childhood and can have an impact on your child’s social skills, performance at school and emotional health. With the right care from a specialist Child Psychiatrist, your child can learn to cope with the condition and live a healthy, fulfilling life.
Psymplicity Healthcare’s child psychiatrists have developed a highly-effective, patient-centred approach to managing these conditions. We understand that considering psychiatric treatment for your child might cause you some anxiety, and we are here to support you every step of the way.
While it is true that most kids struggle at times to stay focused, pay attention, follow directions, and sit still, for kids with ADHD, this can be a lot harder. The condition makes it difficult to inhibit their impulsive actions, which is reflected in their movements, conversation skills, and attention spans. The severity of ADHD and ADD vary for each child but the symptoms typically consist of some combination of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.
The most common symptoms of ADD and ADD in children are:
Very often, when children exhibit some characteristics such as being highly restless or easily forgetful or easily distracted from completing tasks, parents are concerned if the behavior indicates ADHD or ADD. If you are worried about your child displaying these conditions over a prolonged period of time, and if it is affecting their performance at school or otherwise, it would be good to get a professional diagnosis.
Before you seek professional help, you can try this self-assessment at the privacy of your home and if you answer affirmatively to most of the questions, you can reach out to us and our caring team of experts will guide you on the next steps.
We understand the stress that comes with dealing with your child’s ADD or ADHD condition. Our dedicated team of psychiatrists is committed to providing a personalised treatment plan that provides your child with the care and attention they need. We develop bespoke treatment plans tailored to your child’s specific needs with an aim to help them cope best with the condition and reduce the symptoms using a holistic approach comprising evidence-based methods.
To ensure your child receives a perfectly tailored treatment plan, we will begin with a comprehensive professional diagnosis performed by our highly experienced psychiatrists who will produce a personalised Psychiatric Report, which you may share with your GP. Our comprehensive Psychiatric Reports can help aid an application for, or existing, Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP) in order to ensure your child receives the support they are entitled to.
ADHD and ADD can be treated by a number of methods that may or may not necessitate medications. Our expert team has a deep understanding of the benefits associated with the medication and we will evaluate the specific needs for your child to form a bespoke treatment plan. All our treatments are evidence-based, and we aim to provide a ‘gold-standard’ service as outlined by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE)
Your child needs continued care and love to help them through this journey and we are committed to providing it. Through a series of follow-up appointments, we will closely review your child’s condition to support them, effectively.

While there is no clear evidence of the cause of ADHD in children, research shows that a combination of factors such as environmental elements, genetics, and brain development can result in ADHD.
ADHD/ADD symptoms typically begin to occur during early childhood. Depending on the severity of symptoms, some children outgrow ADD/ADHD or rather do not display associated symptoms as they grow, while others experience persistent symptoms into adolescence and adulthood. Some of the more prominent symptoms associated with hyperactivity continue to decline with age, when an adult with ADHD is likely to experience other symptoms that cause significant impairment.
Childhood ADD/ADHD can be treated with a combination of medications, therapy, counseling and other techniques suited to the needs of the specific child. The treatment can help the child manage their symptoms and cope with the condition, so that they can grow up to be healthy teenagers and adults.
Childhood ADD/ADHD and its associated symptoms have a spectrum of severity and each child’s condition is different. If left untreated, a child with minor symptoms may grow out of these symptoms eventually or the symptoms may become less impactful. A child with severe symptoms may grow on to become an adult with persistent conditions which cause significant impairments in their ability to function independently and thrive. Adults experiencing ADD or ADHD, should seek out suitable treatment.
If your child psychiatrist recommends a holistic treatment plan that includes ADD/ADHD medication, and if your child is over ten years of age, we will prescribe an effective medicinal solution in accordance with your child’s physiology and needs. Before the proper holistic treatment plan can be ascertained, which may or may not include medication, it is essential to undertake a thorough analysis of your child’s condition.
