Interventions

A Cognitive Behavioural Therapeutic (CBT) framework is used, together with Solution Focussed Therapy as appropriate. However, all intervention is individually tailored according to the clients' way of thinking, values and needs. This will apply to people with, or without developmental disorders.

Goals and expectations are identified during the first session to ensure a focussed approach throughout. A package of 6 to 10 sessions will be developed with an agreed review date in order to ensure we are addressing the issues and goals as defined.

  • Intervention is offered to people with Asperger's Syndrome in order to address chronic anxiety, depression and self esteem difficulties. I have developed an understanding of the thinking style of people with Asperger's and ASDs. Flexibility is a crucial aspect of my approach, in order to achieve each individual's goals.
  • Interventions with teenagers and young adults may be carried out together with a parent, depending on the needs of the individual and the potential value of the parent contributing in a collaborative way with their son or daughter.
  • Couple therapy can be provided where one member of the couple has an Autistic Spectrum Condition/Asperger's Syndrome. The aim is to develop a shared understanding of each person's needs, define and work towards agreed goals.
  • Training and Consultation can be offered to organisations and staff groups, tailor made according to need. These will be costed according to the package.

Cost

Intervention is charged at 110 per hour, each session lasting for at least one hour. The frequency and duration of intervention sessions is agreed during the initial session.
