Auternative Coaching is a Community Interest Company that specialises in coaching autistic and neurodivergent people, and their families and caregivers.
Whether you are an autistic adult who is feeling anxious and stuck in a rut, or a parent/caregiver who is feeling overwhelmed and doesn’t know where to turn for support - we can help.
We use adapted coaching techniques and concepts to help individuals explore new strategies, reframe thinking, raise awareness and overcome the self-limiting beliefs that can get in the way.
We offer 121 coaching adults, parents and carers, workplace coaching, group coaching courses, and bespoke workshops and training for companies that employ or support neurodivergent people.

121 coaching for adults
Our 121 coaching is adapted to meet your needs.
We take time to understand you and explore your strengths and challenges. Common coaching themes include stress management, communication differences, confidence, and executive functioning issues like time management and organisation.
Sessions can be funded privately or via workplace/Access to Work.
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 are held over five or six weeks. Step back from day to day life to reflect on your child's strengths and challenges. Learn techniques and strategies and leave the course ready to reconnect with your daily life in a more positive and constructive way.
Coaching for parents and carers
Our coaching for parents offers a flexible approach that can be tailored to individual needs.
If you are feeling overwhelmed and don't know where to turn, we can help.
Our coaching focuses on wellbeing for the whole family, helping you develop a better understanding of your child’s needs and behaviour and how you can best support them.
We also offer bespoke group coaching workshops, 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."
