Are you looking for help with autism counselling, therapy or coaching? Talk to us.

Coaching, counselling and therapy are three different ways of getting one-to-one help when things are getting tough for you to manage on your own – either as an autistic person or someone who cares for an autistic person.

These approaches to getting help are based on a relationship with you and your helper, who will help lead you both in a creative conversation process to heal, inspire and maximise your potential. Helping can be personal, professional or a combination of both. Autism Helping is a skilled process which includes skilled listening and questioning, providing feedback, direction and encouragement.

We specialise in coaching for autistic people and their family members who need support. We’ve been involved in supporting people from a strengths-based perspective of Autism, Aspergers and ADHD for many years. After a ‘chemistry conversation’ over coffee, phone or the internet, we contract around your goals and aspirations, for a pre-agreed term.

We can also advise you in reaching out to an autism counsellor or therapist.
