About me

Do you self identify as autistic?

Are you currently awaiting an autism referral/assessment?

Or, perhaps you have already received a diagnosis? Or, maybe you�ve been assessed, but disagree with the assessment outcome, and want to talk it through?

I am a qualified, BACP accredited, experienced counsellor, and I've been working therapeutically since 2018, andI have an interest in working with neurodivergence, autism in particular.

I have vast amounts of personal experience with Neurodivergence, and therefore feel that I can be a great source of support to you.

The whole process of waiting for and receiving an autism referral, and then waiting again for the assessment, can bring up a lot of difficult emotions.

I would like to help you work through those emotions in a non-judgemental, safe space.

Whether you are self identifying, awaiting an assessment, or are in receipt of an �assessment outcome� (diagnosis or not) it is common to feel:

Overwhelmed
Afraid
Isolated
Confused
Regretful
Shocked
Sad
Stressed
Angry
Discriminated against
Judged�

�or you might be anticipating some of the above feelings.

On the contrary, some people also feel:

Hopeful
Relieved
Grateful
Exhilarated
Happy
Validated
Vindicated
Seen
Heard

Or a mixture of the above!

Maybe you�re feeling nothing at all, and are maybe wondering why you�re feeling so neutral, or perhaps numb?

It is also common to be concerned about the wellbeing of any children (or planned children), who might also be neurodivergent.

The society that we live in isn�t necessarily that accommodating to neurodivergent individuals. Perhaps you�re feeling unsupported, or disabled by society?

I would love to support you as you view your life story through a neurodivergent lens, and to help you to make sense of, and navigate your future (a future that, for some, might look different now.)

My clinic, Open Space Counselling, is based in the North of Peterborough, on the Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire border.
