ASD Counselling

DisabilityPlus empowers you with a Counsellor who has expert knowledge of supporting people with Autism. Our therapy supports you with mental & emotional health issues to allow you to have a brighter future. 

Our Service supports people with mental health, whether pre-existing issues have worsened or a new condition that stems from living with autism. Our specialist therapists understand the problems ASD can have on a person’s mental & emotional health.

Mental Health

Do you want counselling but feel afraid the therapist won’t understand you or have previously tried therapy and felt like it was not helping?. Perhaps, you’re dealing with feelings of anxiety, depression, and imposter syndrome. Or, you’re struggling to cope with bullying and trauma’s effect on your life. Whatever brings you to therapy, our autism counselling team can help you thrive and feel comfortable in your skin.

“The most interesting people youll find are the ones that dont fit into your averadge cardbouard box. They’ll make their own boxes.”

If you feel like you have ASD traits, you may see the world differently than most people. Perhaps, you feel uncomfortable being yourself in social or work settings. These feelings make life complicated, leaving you feeling overwhelmed, worthless, and hopeless.

Thoughts

  • Have difficulty reading social cues?
  • Say or do things that unintentionally hurt others?
  • Struggle with relationships and making friends?
  • Experience social anxiety?
  • Have difficulty adapting to change and transitions (starting college, getting a job, etc)?
  • Feel stuck, overwhelmed, or alone?
  • Feel unsure how to move forward in life?
  • Have autism traits that are not always clear to others

If you have answered these questions & feel it broadly describes how you think and act, ASD counselling may be a great place to start to move forward healthily and confidently.
