Do you or someone close to you have Dyslexia, ADHD or another different learning style but you can't find a counsellor who understands? Does this sound familiar... Feeling like nobody understands or gets you Having problems reading or writing but you know you are not stupid Feeling like you are different and didn't fit in as a child or even now as an adult Having problems in relationships and communication Feeling like an outsider in the world not knowing how to fit in If so you are certainly not alone Dyslexia, ADHD and many other 'different learning styles' (often incorrectly called learning disabilities) are more common than you may think. Some estimates suggest that 10% of the population think this way. The problem is, even today, people with this unique style of thinking are often treated as 'faulty' needing fixing or correction by most professionals. Few professionals including counsellors understand the way people with Dyslexia etc think. You are not faulty, you don't need to be corrected or fixed, what you need is support and understanding. Your style of thinking is more visual and creative. Intuition and insight is also important to you. Another one of your great attributes is empathy and your ability to connect with peoples emotions and feelings. Rather then thinking sequentially, that is to say step by step, you have a more holistic, random and global view, often seeing the solution, or end point way before others. If it wasn't for thinkers like you we wouldn't have great creators like Einstein and great artists. Why you need specialist counselling. These are some of the labels WRONGLY given to children with Dyslexia, ADHD and other learning styles. Disruptive - Causing problems in class Stupid - Unable to understand Un-teachable - Unable to learn Disabled - doesn't have normal abilities
