Coaching for autistic adults 

Feeling stuck in a rut, anxious or overwhelmed? We can help.

 

Sometimes we all get stuck in a rut. And, despite knowing we aren't happy with aspects of our lives, we can feel helpless and unable to change things. That's where Auternative Coaching can help.

 

If you are an autistic adults we offer practical, proactive, therapeutic coaching that has been specially adapted to meet your needs. We use adapted coaching and mindfulness techniques, and a positive, strength based understanding of autism, to breakdown self-limiting beliefs, challenge perceptions and increase motivation so change can happen.

Working with your coach on a one to one basis we can help you to reflect on your individual needs and recognise your strengths so you feel empowered to take action that's right for you, and achieve your goals.

What to expect

Coaching is a powerful outcome focused process that has been found to be highly effective in helping autistic people get the best out of life and realise their potential.


All of coaches have first-hand experience of autism, a Diploma of Applied NLP: Autism Coaching and five years plus experience of working with autistic individuals, their families and caregivers.

We provide a relaxed environment and space for you to think, explore and reflect on the assumptions that may be holding you back. We can help you transform how you see yourself, by focusing on your skills and interests, reframing your thinking and helping you to overcome self-limiting beliefs and challenges that get in the way of you reaching your unique potential.
