Group coaching courses for parents and carers

Our group coaching courses bring together a small group of parents and carers who look after a child or young person that is on the autism spectrum.

They offers a confidential and safe space to have constructive discussions and an opportunity to think, reflect and plan in a supportive group environment.


Group coaching has the extra benefit of bringing people in similar situations together, enabling them to relate to each other and learn from each other. This also creates a community interested in discussing the same topics they are struggling with to help them overcome challenges, raise awareness and take action that is relevant to them.

We currently offer two courses, a six week course which is suitable for parents and carers of children of any age, and a five week parenting teens course which is specifically aimed at parents/carers of teenagers and young adults. 

Courses available:

Start dates available:

Tuesday 23 November - 7.30pm to 9pm

Tuesday 25 January - 7.30pm to 9pm

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."
