Autism coaching


Neuro Directions – Autism Coaching

Autism coaching support is a valuable resource for autistic individuals, a lifelong developmental disability that can significantly impact their wellbeing and life outcomes. Autism can present differently and vary from person to person, resulting in a distinct combination of strengths and weaknesses. These challenges often encompass difficulties in social interaction, communication, repetitive behaviours, sensory sensitivities, emotional regulation, and anxiety.

In recognition of these obstacles, autism coaching support offers a practical intervention that aims to assist autistic individuals in discovering effective strategies to overcome these challenges and enhance their overall quality of life. This support extends to various areas, including academic pursuits, career development, emotional well-being, and interpersonal relationships. It’s essential to emphasize that formal diagnosis of Autism is not a prerequisite for accessing the benefits of autism coaching support. The primary focus is on providing individuals with the necessary tools to navigate their unique experiences, empowering them to achieve their personal goals.

Autism coaching support can work well for the following difficulties:
  • Communication
  • Improving self-esteem and confidence
  • Relationships – personal and professional
  • Managing sensory sensitivities
  • Coping with the school or work environments
  • Concentration, focus, and attention
  • Managing transitions and change
  • Managing emotions, including anger
  • Developing impulse control
  • Planning and organisational skills
  • Time-management
  • Goal-setting and motivation
  • Poor sleep and insomnia
  • Anxiety and stress
How autism coaching support works

You will need to book a 30-minute free discovery session with a coach via the bookings page. During the discovery call, you will get to know the coach and find out if their approach is right for you. Additionally, you and the coach will agree on the frequency and time of the coaching sessions.

What you can expect from autism coaching support
  • Initial sessions involve getting to know one another and establishing your priorities, goals, and objectives.
  • Coaching that is tailored to your specific needs.
  • Option of weekly, fortnightly, or monthly sessions.
  • Option of 60 to 120-minute sessions.
  • Option of face-to-face sessions, walk-and-talk coaching, or sessions online via Zoom (you can request another video call option).
  • Regular progress reviews and reformulation sessions.
  • Tools and exercises to aid positive mental health, your progress, and improvement.
  • Text check-ins in between sessions as required.
How much does it cost?

Coaching sessions range from £120 to £240 +VAT per 60 minutes. We also offer lots of slots at a reduced and low cost for those on a low income or where they are grant funded; we don’t want the price to be a barrier for you to access support.

You may be entitled to apply for a grant that can either pay for the coaching in full or contribute towards the costs via the UK government access to work scheme.

Our approach encourages you to feel at ease, be connected and be inspired to find answers within yourself.
