Adult Autism Counselling and Psychotherapy

Online Psychotherapy and Counselling for Autistic Adults

If you’re an autistic adult, life can be challenging. You may feel like you’re swimming against the current, feeling on the outside looking in, and trying to make your way in a world that doesn’t always understand you. That’s where autism-informed approach to psychotherapy and counselling comes in.

Autistic masking can be exhausting. It can mean in social situations you are constantly trying to figure out; “what is expected of me ?” or “am I getting this right?”. Masking can involve doing your best to get through the day with sensory overload, trying to stay on top of things, but still feeling depleted. Masking involves trying to fit into a neurotypical world that wasn’t built for your brain. Adult autism counselling and psychotherapy can help you learn about your unique autistic identity, so that you can an gain an understanding of ‘who you are in the world’, and what you need to find your balance and keep your balance.

Autism-informed psychotherapy and counselling can help you find your strengths, and learn to cope with the challenges of neurodivergence in a neurotypical world. Finding a therapist who is experienced in working with autistic clients is important and beneficial. This ensures that you’re getting the most out of therapy and that your therapist understands your specific needs

How Can Autism Counselling and Psychotherapy Help?

You will learn how to cope with sensory sensitivities, manage executive function difficulties, and navigate the social world around you.
