Support Sessions for Parents of Neurodivergent Children and Young People

Parent Support

For parents of autistic or ADHD children or teens who want to gain understanding and support around neurodivergence, Amy offers one-off support sessions.

Maybe you’re struggling to know what to do for the best for your young person and would like some practical tools. Or perhaps you feel that your child would benefit from some therapeutic support but they are reluctant to engage with the idea of talking therapy.

During the long wait following a referral, or even after a diagnosis, it can be hard as a parent to know what to do next. Often you are left to learn about your child’s neurodivergence yourself and to figure out what works for your family. In this instance it can be helpful to talk to someone who has knowledge and experience of working with neurodivergence.

As a neurodivergent therapist herself, Amy also has personal experience of the ups and downs of parenting a neurodiverse family, including navigating referrals/assessments and the EHCP process. She also has extensive experience as part of Kent children’s workforce and draws on this also. Amy can work with you and your particular concerns to help you learn about autism or ADHD, provide some therapeutic insights and find the best way forward for your family.

Parent feedback

I didn’t really know what to expect, my main aim was how best to support my Son through a difficult time and his counselling. I am grateful to Amy for offering this parent session, when I didn’t know where else to turn to, to help me my son in this part of his journey. She helped me to understand strategies that would support their work, reconnect with him and understand his changing behaviours. I now have a greater understanding not only how best to support him but also with different aspects of his Autism. I highly recommend the parent sessions. Thank you.

It has been an absolute weight off my shoulders to have some additional support. I’ve massively appreciated Amy’s sensitive and positive outlook around the experiences of the wonderful young people we are lucky to share our lives with and I feel well prepared with some practical advice and tools to support him moving forward.
