"If you've met one person with Autism, you've met one person with Autism" Dr Stephen Shore

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is an umbrella term used to describe a number of neuro developmental disorders that affect how a person perceives the world and interacts with others.


Autism, Asperger's Syndrome and PDA all sit on the Autistic Spectrum, although Asperger's is no longer diagnosed separately. I am passionate about helping to drive awareness and understanding of ASD, especially the different presentations in girls and women.


Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) whilst not on the Autistic Spectrum itself is also a neurodevelopmental disorder and has many shared behaviours and traits with ASD. The two can commonly co-exist together. There are three different presentations; Combined type, Hyperactive or Inattentive

I work with many clients who either have or live alongside someone with an Autistic Spectrum Condition or ADHD/ADD whether there is an official diagnosis in place or not. These are the different ways I can offer support to you or your child:


  • Space to explore a diagnosis and what that means for the future

  • Opportunity to understand how ASD,ADHD,ADD, PDA impacts upon you as an individual and the wider family

  • Help identifying emotions and feelings and how to manage them with positive coping tools

  • Space to explore and understand  sensory or communication difficulties

  • Help improving communication and executive functioning

  • Help identifying what causes anxiety and the  challenges that arise from living in a world that places you or your child in a state of constant 'fight or flight'

  • Support battling school and the educational system, particularly if your child's behaviours are only visible at home

  • Help trying to get a diagnosis and or navigating the incredibly stressful EHCP process

  • Coaching for parents who are struggling to manage their child's meltdowns and challenging behaviour at home

  • Support for siblings who are finding it difficult living with a sister or brother who has ASD and/or ADHD
