Our coaching for autistic adults uses techniques that have been adapted to meet the needs of autistic people
Working with a coach can help you to reflect on your needs and recognise your strengths so you feel empowered to take action that's right for you.
We can help you plan for the future, decrease stress levels, break the cycle of negative thinking, and improving self belief and motivation.
Group coaching courses for parents & carers
Our parent and carers group courses bring together a small group of parents/carers who are in similar situations, enabling them to relate, learn and support each other.
Weekly sessions, over five or six weeks, teaching parents techniques and strategies to tackle the challenges they face so they leave the course ready to reconnect with your daily life in a more positive and constructive way.

Our coaching focuses on wellbeing for the whole family, help you develop a better understanding of your child’s behaviour and how you can best support them.
We also offer bespoke group coaching courses and training designed to meet the needs of organisations that employ or support autistic people.
What our clients say about us
"My coach helps me to keep in mind that I need to focus on things that are helpful for me, not just for my son.
"It’s helpful to have someone who is also a parent of a child with autism and she has useful ideas and experience about parenting an autistic child. She’s very friendly, kind and professional and someone who can listen and not judge me."
