    Video Counselling

    Advantages of Video Counseling for Autism and Mental Health

    At DisabilityPlus, we recognise the diverse needs of individuals on the autism spectrum and understand that accessing appropriate counselling services can be a crucial step towards achieving mental well-being. Our commitment to providing effective support led us to explore innovative avenues, including video counselling, to ensure that our services are accessible, personalised, and impactful.

    Comfortable and Familiar Environment: For individuals with autism, maintaining a sense of comfort and familiarity can be essential. Video counselling allows clients to engage in therapeutic sessions from the comfort of their own surroundings, reducing the anxiety that might arise from visiting an unfamiliar physical location.

    Reduced Sensory Overload: Sensory sensitivities are common among those on the autism spectrum. Video counselling enables clients to control their environment, minimising potential sensory triggers that could hinder their engagement in therapy.

    Flexibility in Communication: Many individuals with autism find verbal communication challenging. Video counselling offers multiple modes of communication, including verbal, written, or even nonverbal cues, allowing clients to express themselves in ways that are most comfortable for them.

    Enhanced Focus: Video counselling sessions can facilitate increased attention and engagement. Clients can choose an environment that promotes focus, making it easier to participate in discussions and activities actively.

    Convenience and Accessibility: Traveling to an in-person session might pose challenges for individuals on the autism spectrum. Video counselling eliminates transportation barriers, ensuring consistent access to therapy without the added stress of commuting.

    Family Involvement: Video counselling allows family members to participate in sessions more conveniently, enabling a more holistic approach to therapy. This can be especially beneficial when working on social skills, communication strategies, and coping mechanisms.

    Supportive Transition: Video counselling can serve as a transitional step for those who eventually aim to engage in in-person therapy. It helps build a rapport with the counsellor before transitioning to face-to-face interactions.

    Expertise that Matters:

    At DisabilityPlus, we understand that finding counsellors with expertise in both mental health and autism can be challenging. That’s why we take pride in having specialists who not only possess professional qualifications but also personal experience with autism. Our unique team composition ensures a deep understanding of the challenges faced by individuals on the spectrum and a tailored approach to their needs.

    Whether you’re seeking autism counselling, ASD counselling, or mental health support, our video counselling services provide a bridge to effective therapy in a way that aligns with your unique requirements. 

    Questions you may wish to ask?

      About your Counselling?

      What to expect? – your counsellor will understand the issues you may be facing; each person is different; however, in Autism Counselling, common themes are discussed.

      Therapy – we usually offer counselling that supports resolutions of your current issues and future planning. Some people prefer a longer, more profound form of psychotherapy. We support both modes of counselling.

      When can I start counselling? – if you pay for sessions, therapy generally starts within a fortnight.

      We pride ourselves on providing safe and compassionate Disability Focused Counselling where all individuals, regardless of cultural, gender or sexual identity, can receive equitable mental health services and support.

      So, if you’re struggling in any way right now, don’t hesitate to contact us. 

      Developing Coping Strategies

      Counselling equips individuals with ASD with effective coping strategies tailored to their unique needs.

      Coping with sensory sensitivities, transitions, and unexpected changes can be overwhelming.

      Our counselling sessions focus on teaching practical techniques to manage anxiety, sensory issues, and stress. These strategies empower individuals to face daily challenges with confidence and resilience.

      Enhancing Communication Skills

      Communication is a core area of focus in our autism counselling services. Our skilled counsellors work alongside individuals with ASD to enhance verbal and non-verbal communication skills.

      We provide personalised guidance to improve social interactions, express emotions, and interpret social cues, fostering more meaningful connections with others.
