Do You Have Or Think You Have Autism?
You might already have an autism diagnosis (recent or from the past) or you may suspect you have autism. Perhaps a loved one has suggested you may have autism and suggested finding a therapist or coach who is experienced in autism. You may be looking for ways to deal with changes and transitions, manage personal or professional relationships, develop new relationships, work on communication or social skills, or develop a schedule/organizational skills. Sometimes family members or spouses of people with autism might be looking for ways to learn communication strategies, deepen their connection, and develop an understanding of their loved one. I provide counselling and coaching specifically for people with autism or who believe they have autism, or their loved ones. Speaking to someone who understands can be a great way to learn and grow.
What Are The Impacts?
As a neurodiversity therapist and coach with over 20 years’ experience, I have worked with many autistic people who struggle in their day to day life, work, or relationships. This can be a result of many reasons, including difficulties with communication, understanding other’s perspective, or social interaction challenges. These issues can lead to misunderstandings, conflicts, and strain in the person's life. You may be struggling with changes and transitions, sensory issues, social skills, or with organizational skills. Sometimes family members or spouses of autistic people might be looking for ways to learn communication strategies, deepen their connection, and develop an understanding of their loved one.
What Can You Do?
Counselling can help autistic individuals in various ways. Counselling can help autistic individuals to develop insight, self-awareness, develop and practice effective communication skills, express/understand emotions, learn to understand non-verbal cues, social interaction, and problem-solving. This can help to prevent misunderstandings and conflicts, and foster more positive relationships at work or in their personal lives.
