Neurodiversity and learning difficulties
The diagnosis of a learning difficulty can lead to a range of emotions, from sadness to relief, confusion to realisation, not only for those diagnosed but also the people around them.
Regardless of the severity, learning difficulties can impact an individual’s performance throughout life: academically, in the work place, in relationships and daily life. In a world dominated by neurotypical thinkers, people with learning difficulties so often feel missed and disadvantaged, leading to low self-worth. Counselling can explore those challenges and build self-confidence using creative techniques to suit individual needs.
Caring for someone with severe learning difficulties can be incredibly demanding and frequently goes unnoticed. Counselling offers carers the opportunity to explore thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental environment where they can take time for themselves and feel heard.
I offer a discretionary concession (max. 6 sessions) for those on low income whose lives have been affected by learning difficulties. Please contact me for further information.
