You do not need a doctor for therapy. You need a psychologist, counselor or therapist. Docs handle the meds.

Anyway, I am having a person who specializes in ADHD but is "just" a Doctor without any official specialisation in psychiatry which is the reason I have to pay the therapy myself.
My impression is that she is very highly skilled in the subject of adhd but then I am not a psychiatris or therapist and can't really tell if that what we are talking about etc is the "proper" way of doing therapy for people with adhd which is the reason for me asking about a rough guiline how a therapy would look like etc.
