Are you an adult who has been diagnosed with ADHD in adulthood?

If so, I would like to hear from you!

As part of my MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy I am conducting research into what psychological treatment outcomes matter to adults diagnosed with ADHD.


There is little research on the implications of receiving an ADHD diagnosis as an adult; the impact of growing up with ADHD/living undiagnosed, the impact of receiving a late diagnosis and how ADHD affects daily life/the emotional stress of living with ADHD.

The study aims to enrich our understanding of the real-life psychological treatment outcomes that matter to individuals diagnosed with ADHD in adulthood. This will enable Practitioners to consider what clients may need from psychotherapy and how such needs can be met to benefit therapeutic work.

Taking part would involve a single, individual interview of around one hour. Interviews can be held in person, at The University of Salford, or online – using Microsoft Teams.

In order to participate you must have been diagnosed with ADHD as an adult (> 18 years old).
If you are interested or would like to find out more, please contact the researcher, Sarah Groves:

The research project has received approval from the University of Salford and is supervised by Mark Widdowson:
