Therapy for Autism and ADHD

My Experience 

I am experienced in working therapeutically with autistic individuals and individuals with ADHD, in therapeutic and non therapeutic roles.

 

I understand how both of these conditions impact upon the individual, in terms of personal and social relationships, within employment, and many aspects of life, all of which impact upon an individuals mental health and emotional wellbeing, such as social anxiety, generalised anxiety, low mood, low self-esteem and low confidence. 

From my experience of working with autistic individuals I understand the difficulties of social communication and relating with others can be confusing.

 

I understand the impact of alexithymia- difficulties of understating emotions, sensory processing and sensory overload can be distressing, and the problems which can arise due to executive functioning difficulties.

Autism

ADHD

I also understand the difficulties individuals face who have ADHD, such as difficulties with  concentration, processing information, completing tasks, and executive functioning difficulties.  As well as difficulties in controlling emotions, managing impulse control and experience difficulties with social interactions.

​Every autistic individual and individual who has ADHD is a unique individual, there are shared traits of each condition, however, I understand the traits are individual to you, therefore, your therapy will be tailored uniquely to you and your needs.

 

Within the sessions we will explore strategies to help you to improve communication and relating with others, to implement strategies to enable you to manage daily life and to be an advocate for yourself.

 

We will explore ways to improve your quality of life, your emotional wellbeing, mental health and to improve your confidence and self-esteem.
