Individual counselling is an opportunity to talk with a therapist about things you are struggling with on a day-to-day basis. Neurodivergent clients often report that they “feel different” and may struggle to fit in with society. This often results in masking, which can lead to mental health difficulties due to the strain placed on the individual. Counselling can offer an opportunity to develop a better understanding of the “authentic you” and to increase understanding and awareness of your needs. Many clients have experienced trauma within education, employment and social situations and sometimes struggle to talk about this. Counselling with a therapist who is neuro-affirming and able to provide a safe, non-judgemental space, can enable a client to be heard and validated.
It can be of immeasurable relief to work with a therapist who is able to understand and make sense of your experiences; together identifying practical solutions to tackle some of these challenges.
