Our Clinic

ADHD / ADD Diagnosis – Our Vision

ADHD Consultancy aims to provide a bespoke, high quality yet affordable  ADHD/ADD diagnosis and treatment service.

Unfortunately, the NHS is overstretched and under-resourced.  Many people face waits of many months, or even years, to be seen by their local service, assuming that such a local service exists.

Doctors and psychiatrists generally receive little, if any, training in adult ADHD/ADD. As a result, there are many misunderstandings about the different ways that ADHD can present itself in adults and children, especially in terms of high functioning presentations. People with lifelong difficulties can be refused the diagnosis and treatment they need, even by specialist NHS ADHD teams.


What we offer





Reasonable Adjustments



A way forward

Our comprehensive report will cover the ways in which your ADHD/ADD has affected you across your life. The report also covers comorbid mental health and other neurodevelopmental issues, which are so often found alongside ADHD/ADD. In addition, it offers a concise formulation that will help you understand your difficulties including psychodynamic insights where appropriate. Our aim is to help you understand yourself and move forward with your life

If appropriate, we will prescribe stimulant medication. We also work with you and your GP to get you shared care NHS prescribing. Almost all of our patients have been successful in getting their medication from their GPs to date. The report will detail reasonable adjustments suitable for school, college, university or workplace.

We also offer a wide range of psychoeducation, coaching style advice, and a wealth of psychoeducational and cognitively based material tailored to your needs.

This will all be available after your appointment via email.. We also offer a free email aftercare service – once seen you can email our doctors at any time with queries or concerns.

Our promise

An affordable, high-quality service

Many private practices are prohibitively expensive, so we aim to offer an affordable, yet bespoke high-quality service. While ADHD Consultancy’s main focus is ADHD/ADD diagnosis and treatment, our comprehensive assessment also looks at other associated or comorbid conditions.

Our multiaxial assessment will highlight these, and their impact on your functioning and well-being. Dr Read is also a trained psychotherapist, specialising in Cognitive Analytic Therapy, and her psychodynamic and cognitive understanding and strategies really help in the journey of self-understanding, and formulating a treatment plan. Dr Read also has ADHD herself and has a deep personal understanding of how ADHD impacts lives and which treatments actually work.

Dr Read has a special interest in rejection sensitivity

Despite not (yet) being part of the diagnostic criteria, people with ADHD/ADD so often struggle with rejection sensitive dysphoria and other emotional issues as part of these conditions.  Our treatment plans for this condition are highly effective

ADHD can affect girls and women differently

Thank you so much Dr Read. Very accommodating and made an intimidating process very accessible and pleasant. Cannot recommend enough.
Dr Read is a truly incredible doctor. If you are looking for validation, kindness and support - I would not recommend anywhere else. Thank you Dr Read for making things make sense. For helping me realise I’m not just lazy and useless, and for helping me live a life that I feel good about.

I would recommend this service to anyone. I saw both Dr Read and Dr Kretzschmar, who really put me at my ease and were kind and approachable. The appointments are extremely thorough and both doctors have helped me immensely. After the appointments, it is extremely easy to contact them and to arrange follow ups.

Thank you Dr Read - my diagnosis has saved my life. I have carried a lot of shame around for years, so it has been a huge relief to make sense of things and finally arrive here. I did not feel rushed during assessment and it was compassionate, informed and thorough. Now I am in the process of trying medication. My GP agreed to “shared care” - which is fantastic. Would certainly recommend this service.
