Adult ADHD

Hi There

What kind of doctor do I see if I think I have Adult ADHD? They talk about psychotherapists, is that the same as a Psychologists?

Please advise.

I have never heard of ANY evidence that adult ADHD should be treated by psychotherapy. But first you need a good diagnosis, and for that you should see a good local psychiatrist ( who is also a doctor and can prescribe meds which can help ADHD considerably ) for assessment and diagnosis ; then you can discuss treatment options with him / her
