For the past 4 years, I’ve been counselling autistic people. I decided to start offering this as I’ve had lots of experience working with neurodiverse clients, and thought I could be of support in more ways than one.
It’s been a rewarding area and client group to work with, and I’ve enjoyed adding more knowledge so I can help more effectively in the therapy room.
I’ve written blog posts on this topic, which you can find via my blogsite. In these links you’ll get a better idea of my understanding of Autism as well as how I will work in the room.
I’ll leave some links here for ease of access.
Do check in the blogsite itself for more, in case there’s a delay in updating the links list.
A bit more on my background working with neurodiverse clients…
I hold an NVQ3 in Adult Health and Social Care, as well as an NVQ3 in Residential Childcare.
I have also attended regular training sessions in safeguarding adults and children, as well as other training relevant to the support and care sector.
I have 11 years of experience working with adults and children with autism, and am confident that I can support families, friends, children and young people with Autism through counselling and play therapy.
I enjoy working with neurodiversity and am constantly adding to the list of services and groups of people I can work with.
Support for NeuroDiverse Adults
Mentoring, Personal Assistance, Support work
Empowering you to achieve your goals and live your best life.
There seems to be a lot of support for young people and children in regards to support work and I am looking to bridge that gap by working one-to-one with neurodiverse adults.
My experience in supported living and residential care will come in to handy here, as will my counselling skills.
My role as a support worker or personal assistant will vary greatly from how I work with counselling clients, supervisees and languages students.
I will be offering accountability and advice on how to go about your day without getting too distracted, procrastinating or getting overwhelmed.
You will be doing the work, with my input and support.
Sometimes just having an “outsider’s” perspective helps us get back on track and gain new insights into what we’d like to achieve in our lives.
Together, we will find the right pace for you and as we get to know each other, I’ll have a greater perspective of the key areas we might need to focus on to create habits that help you in every area of your life, including your working and personal relationships.
