Learning to communicate your experiences and your needs to loved ones; overcoming the social isolation that disability brings, and coping with the extra effort it can take to be around other people; finding your place and valuing yourself in a society that doesn’t understand or appreciate those who are different in any way – these are changes that might seem impossible to make. I believe that you have both the strength and the answers within yourself, and I can help you find them.
To be able to tell those around you what you need, you have to know what they are yourself. I provide a safe, non-judgemental space for you to work things through, to speak freely and openly about your feelings and experiences so that you can move forward, make changes, and increase your self-esteem. I am myself disabled and a carer and have experienced first-hand the effects of disability, autism and ADHD on everyday life. I have had to relearn how to live within a disabled body. This doesn’t make me an expert in your life, but it does help me understand many of the challenges which might be facing you.
