Modified psychotherapy for people with ASD. Adapted counselling to suit and support people with autism and their siblings. Each session is uniquely tailored to match the clients’ individual emotional needs. The room can be transformed into a sensory room and takes individual needs into account, The aim of this therapy is to help you cope better and build behavioural skills to improve everyday life. Individuals on the autism spectrum can have challenges that are unique. Modified Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can help deal with anger, anxiety, depression/ low mood, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), social difficulties, communication difficulties, sexuality, transitioning, and building self-esteem and self-awareness.
I offer support for people coming to terms with a new diagnosis. Parents and siblings can come to therapy to discuss their challenges and stressors you may have. You may also what to deal with other issues and learn to cope better in life. We can build strategies to improve your wellbeing and strengthen understanding, communication and relationships in the family.
