Gold Coast Counsellor Karen Gosling specialises in helping couples adapt to each other’s personality and quirks, including behaviours associated with Adult ADD (ADHD). She teaches couples to celebrate the difference where Adult ADD (ADHD) is impacting on the relationship.
Over time, once you know about ADD you can challenge each other to re-examine long-held expectations about gender roles, relationships, and your own core issues.
