This research project dives into the indicated relationship between Smartphone Addiction (SPA) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) within the context of counselling. This study looks at evidence-based treatments that psychotherapists and counselling clinicians can utilize to successfully address the interconnected difficulties by combining existing literature and empirical studies. The results show the importance of mindfulness-based therapies (MBI), physical activity, social support, and digital health interventions (DHI) in combating and reducing symptoms of ADHD and SPA. The research intends to provide the counselling profession with practical techniques to support individuals dealing with these complex challenges by conducting a thorough analysis of various treatment modalities. Counsellors can have a significant impact on individuals with ADHD and their SPA by prioritizing a comprehensive treatment approach and taking into account the specific requirements of each individualistic client. This approach is crucial in encouraging recovery and enhancing overall well-being.
