One-on-one coaching and counselling sessions provide a personal, understanding environment that is fully tailored to your needs, challenges, and circumstances.
Team up with a professional Coach or Counsellor and start making positive changes in your everyday life.
We also have a free Support Line open to everyone in the community.
The right Coach for you
The first step to the right counselling is finding the right coach. Aside from credentials and experience, the chemistry between the two of you also determines success.
In some instances, hiring a coach who isn’t familiar with ADHD or associated conditions can hinder more than help. That’s why we always recommend you choose from our pool of qualified professional ADHD Coaches — they understand the strategies that work for people living with ADHD and associated conditions. You can also draw from The Professional Association of ADHD Coaches (PAAC) and the ADD Coach Academy.
ADHD WA Coaches and Counsellors
If you choose a Coach or Counsellor through ADHD WA, sessions usually take place at our Nedlands office. If you live in a remote area or can’t make it to a face-to-face session, you can also arrange coaching via Skype. Prices and available times vary depending on your Specialis. ADHD WA Coaches and Counsellors are only accessible by ADHD WA members.
Elena Trethowan, Provisional Psychologist & Counsellor — available for adult counselling on Tuesdays between 8:30am – 3:30pm and family and child/adolescent counselling on Saturdays between 9:30am – 2:30pm. The fees are $60.00 per session.

Open five days a week
If you feel like coaching isn’t the right option for you, we’re always happy to chat over our Support Line, which open to everyone in the community (not just our members). The ADHD WA Support Line provides free, state-wide information and support five days a week. Support Line conversations are focused on you and completely confidential.
Run by trained, dedicated, compassionate people
When you call, you’ll speak to a real, local person. A trained volunteer will listen to your story or struggles, and answer any questions. Volunteers include Psychologists, Educators, Social Workers, and individuals with lived experience. Volunteers can also:
- Share information about our services, groups, programs, and more.
- Refer you to external services that can provide additional support.
- Suggest health and allied health professionals with ADHD experience.
Accessible by everyone
This Support Line is literally open to everyone! People of all ages living with ADHD and associated conditions, parents of children with ADHD, as well as those who treat, teach, and work with individuals and families impacted by ADHD and associated conditions.
Open Monday – Friday between 9:30am – 12:30pm. You’re welcome to call outside these hours and leave a message — our team will get back to you as soon as possible.
