Neuro-affirming mental health support from a neurodivergent psychologist

Hi! I'm Amy.

I’m an experienced and clinically-trained neurodivergent psychologist who is warm, genuine, direct, and friendly. 


I've got a specialist skill set in supporting 'high masking' neurodivergent adults who are autistic and/or have ADHD. I also have an interest in supporting my fellow 'zebras' (bendy people).


With me, you’ll be safe, you’ll be heard, and you’ll be free to be who you are. 

I’ll help you to:

  • Understand and accept who you are

  • Cultivate healthier relationships

  • Leverage your strengths

  • Set healthier boundaries

  • Increase your self worth

  • Feel happier and less anxious

  • Enjoy life more


I’m committed to cultivating inclusive spaces.

I celebrate people of all backgrounds, genders, sexualities, cultures, bodies and abilities.

More about me

I’ve been a registered psychologist for 20 years, and 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.


I am proud to be autistic and to have ADHD.

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


My husband and I have two auDHDer boys, two cats (one who is quite naughty), and a dog who loves to eat the cat poo. My 5 year old son and I both have hEDS.


My superpower is the ability to eat a whole packet of TimTams in an alarmingly short period of time.

My areas of specialty include:

  • Autism

  • ADHD

  • Trauma, and

  • Ehlers Danlos Syndrome/ Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder (also known as 'bendy people').


I’m an ‘Accredited EMDR Practitioner’ (which just means I have done a LOT of it) and a member with EMDRAA.


We will work closely together ('attachment-based'), only use stuff that works ('evidence-based'), also work on your trauma ('trauma-informed'), and not forget what you bring to the table! ('strengths-based'). 


I'm a Buddhist who believes that we are all worthy of compassion. I'm also an LGBTQIA+ ally.

I was told I was too empathic to be autistic.
I was told I was too female to be autistic.
I was told I wasn’t autistic enough to be autistic...”

How I can help you

My Approach

Given I’m a psychology nerd, I’ll aim to provide you with the latest tools, research, podcasts and apps. 


I spend time exploring what you think good therapy looks and feels like, what you want from therapy and me, and what style you work best with.


I’m passionate about self-care and self-compassion, and will actively role model this for you.


I believe (and will actively role model) in striving to have authentic and rich connections with people who understand and accept you the way you are- quirks and all.
