Coaching for parents and carers

Feeling challenged, overwhelmed, stressed and exhausted? Not sure how to best support your child and anxious about their future? We can help.

Parenting can be challenging for everyone but add the extra element of a child with additional needs and it’s easy to get overwhelmed.

Our coaching for parents and carers offers a flexible approach that can be tailored to meet your individual needs. Whether you have a specific goal you want to work towards, or are feeling lost and unsure what to do next, our coaching can help you.

Our coaching sessions are an opportunity to step back from your day to day life and reflect on what you want. We use coaching techniques and a strength based approach to autism with a focus on wellbeing for the whole family, to help reduce your stress levels and help you feel more positive and in control.

What to expect

Coaching is a proven, effective way to empower people to make decisions and affect change in their lives. 

As well as exploring the challenges you are facing, we will also help you to gain a better understanding of your child. Working together we will explore what autism looks like in your child, as well as their individual personality, temperament, and strengths, and how you can best support their growth and development. 


Our model focuses on possibilities not limitations and we passionately believe that everyone can learn the skills they need to lead a happy, fulfilling lives.

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."
