Autism Coaching

Coaching is a professional helping relationship. It is a creative process that aims to re-ignite and maximise potential, by safely addressing the needs of the coachee, in private and confidential, supported conversations.

I am an autistic person with many years life experience,  I am trained in counselling and mediation and currently on a Masters course in Coaching and Mentoring. I also have a Postgraduate Certificate in Autism. With many years working on my own unique strengths, I bring a very unique level of insight to the 1-to-1 autistic relationship , with an insider’s view of Autism.

Coaching is not really therapy and I certainly do not work from deficit view in autism. Autistic people might even have super-abilities and it is often our environment’s misalignment and inability to accommodate, that creates blockages when wanting to bring our strengths safely in to the world.  I can help you identify and deal with blocks.

Everyone sometimes gets a bit ‘stuck’ and needs support from another person to become ‘unstuck’.  Professional Coaching is a proven way to improve personal life, work, study and anything else, to then carry on moving towards a healthier spirit and a fuller, happier life.

Together we can get to know your situation thoroughly and/or whatever you wish to work on, clarify your goals and options, solve any interference and move you assertively forwards to achieve the results you really want and need.  I have several autistic clients and am working with people that work and study in the area. With extensive knowledge in autistic sensitivities and sensibilities, and hyper-empathic listening and dynamic accommodating, I will help tailor sessions to your specific needs to make sure you get the most out of them.

We can work in a private meeting room in Sheffield, or at your place or work via Skype or phone.

  • Do you train, work or research in autism? Being coached by an autistic person might turn your views upside down, so be careful!  I’m available to work with individuals and organisational groups in coaching or dialogue, depending on your needs.  I work  with:

autistic adults
families and support networks
academics and students
healthcare and teaching staff
third sector business & organisations

As part of my training towards EMCC accreditation, I invite you to be coached or mentored for threesessions for which there would be no charge and no obligation to continue, unless you wish to. This will be a flexible arrangement, guided by your needs within your workplace, educational or personal life.  Limited availability – use the form below to enquire.
