Neurodivergent Families, Children & Teenagers
I have 25 years of experience working with teenagers as a teacher and mentor, including 10 years as an Independent Visitor for Essex County Council as a mentor to neurodiverse children.
I provide video or phone-based individual support to autistic teens and young people. This support is focused on the needs of the individual, including areas such as sleep, exercise, and nutrition, studying and exams, friendships, personal care, managing anxiety, sensory hypersensitivity and understanding autism and other types of neurodivergence.
I also work directly with parents / couples to support them with parenting neurodivergent teens and children. This can include managing their own self-care and boundaries, communication and building support networks.
