Neuro-affirming mental health services from a neurodivergent Psychologist

Neurodiversity

Some of us have a neurotypical brain, and others have a neurodivergent brain (different to the norm). Autism and ADHD are examples of a neurodivergent brain. 

All neurotypes are important, valued, and critical to society. Many neurodivergent people feel forced to mask their neurotype in order to ‘fit in’. Sadly, this often leads to many issues. 

Neurodivergent Affirming Care

Autism does not need to be fixed or cured. It’s not a disorder. It’s simply a different way of thinking, feeling and interacting.

"Neurodiversity may be the birthplace of some of humanity’s greatest minds" - Harvey Bloome

Autism and ADHD is now celebrated within the range of neurodiversity. Whilst Autism isn’t a disorder, it is a disability, but one that has unique gifts and strengths. 

The neurodiversity affirming approach focusses on inclusion and acceptance of all neurotypes. It’s informed by trauma research and the social model of disability.

It challenges the medical model of disability.

It’s also about identifying unique strengths.

We believe that our neurotype is essential to society and that we deserve respect.

Our neurokin are the experts in neurodiversity, not neurotypical individuals.

Hi, I’m Amy!

I’m proud to be an auDHDer myself.

Phew! It took a while to say that, but I’m there now.

I’ve been a registered psychologist for 20 years. I’m an unapologetic psychology nerd who kicked off my career way back in 2007.

My three key interest areas include late identified autistic adult females/AFAB (assigned female at birth) folk, trauma (using EMDR) and bendy people (EDS/HSD).

Like most of my extended family (looking at you Prior family!) I’ve been a chronic overachiever...

 

I have a Masters degree in both Clinical Psychology and Organisational Psychology. I’ve worked in private practice therapy for the past 10 years, and I have supported neurodivergent adults for many years.

Let's talk FAQs

Who do you see?

I see adult auDHDer clients (self identified is fine!) and/or who have chronic health conditions such as EDS/HSD (bendy people).

Does online therapy work? 

There is growing evidence that online therapy is just as effective as in-person therapy. Some people may find the convenience of online therapy is important, and feel that they are more comfortable discussing personal aspects of their life online.

Is that water or vodka that I see you drinking during our sessions?

Hahaha - wouldn't you like to know! 🥂
