Dear John,
Unfortunately I have not yet come across anyone who has gone through the process; yet as with every other treatment available it may work for some while not for others. It is costly as between 30 and 40 sessions are usually required at about R200 per session; and the results may not be permanent. Before you decide for or against it, speak to a few professionals who use this method and ask to see the research studies pertaining to ADHD that they base their findings on. If they cannot provide substantial evidence, preferably with non paid-for testimonials, it may not be worth the risk.
Best wishes.
