Advocacy For Acceptance & Inclusion

Neurodiversity is the idea that people’s brains are wired differently, The Neurodiversity Movement advocates for acceptance, inclusion and the celebration of neurodivergent individuals in all aspects of society. It challenges stereotypes, promotes understanding and encourages the creation of environments that accommodate diverse ways of thinking and being.

Add as a divergent thinker myself, I have first hand experience of the difficulties one can face in relationships and the workplace and have the experience to empathise and suggest helpful strategies to improve these situations.

Support For Aspergers & Neurodivergence

I approach counselling and psychotherapy for Asperger’s and neurodivergence with a deep understanding of the unique experiences and challenges faced by neurodivergent individuals.

With my own experience of neurodivergence in my family and my own personal experience as a neurodivergent individual I have the experience to relate to other neurodivergent individuals. We are a diverse group, so we won’t have the same experiences, but I’m sure we’ll find we have some things in common.

By recognising the diversity within neurodivergence, my counselling and psychotherapy services are tailored to meet your individual needs for example, goal setting and coping strategies.

Strength Based Perspective

Together we can emphasise the strengths, talents and unique abilities that you bring to the table. I can help you to recognise your diverse style of thinking, learning and processing information.

By fostering your strengths and abilities, we will focus on your positive attributes and work towards making and work collaboratively to develop strategies that align with your strengths and goals.
