Autism Counselling and Psychotherapy
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, trying to make your way in a world that doesn’t understand you. That’s where autism-informed approach to psychotherapy and counselling comes in.
Psychotherapy and counselling can help you learn to cope with the challenges of neurodivergence. 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.
As an adult with autism, chances are you’ve experienced challenges in your life. Maybe you’ve struggled to find a job or to make friends, or perhaps you were teased or bullied you were younger. Or maybe you just feel like you don’t quite fit in with the neurotypical world. Whatever your challenges may be, therapy can help.
How Can Autism Counselling and Psychotherapy Help?
In autism-informed therapy, you’ll have a safe place to explore your identity as an autistic person. You will learn how to cope with sensory sensitivities, manage executive function difficulties, and navigate the social world around you. By working with a therapist who understands autism, you can begin to make positive changes in your life.

If you’re considering autism informed psychotherapy or counselling, it’s important to find a therapist who is experienced in working with autistic clients. I have extensive experience working one to one specifically with adults with autism for many years.
