Are you feeling invisible, lonely or confused in your relationship?
Are you in a relationship with someone who might be or is on the Autism spectrum (ASD)?
You might feel like you have no voice. No one wants to hear your side of the story or realises how difficult it is for you to live with someone who struggles with empathy.
Being the partner of an individual with ASD has its own unique set of challenges. The bottom line is that relationships between a neurotypical individual (you) and an individual with ASD can be tough - and this isn’t anyone’s fault. When we recognise that both people on the spectrum and neurotypical people are born with their own unique and wonderful, yet very different, styles of brain organisation, it becomes clear that we cannot rely on specific blame to explain any issues that arise.
My aim is to help you better understand the inner workings of the ASD mind so that you can gain perspective in order to clarify what is best for you in your relationship.
Perhaps you want to stay in your relationship but you want to know how to make it work.
Perhaps you don’t know what you want or feel anymore.
Perhaps you have decided you want to leave.
And even if you don’t know any of the above, perhaps you would just like someone to talk to about your feelings in a space of complete understanding and zero judgement.
Sometimes in life, our emotions threaten to get the better of us.
We can feel overcome with depression, anxiety, stress, grief or loneliness and realise that we just can't carry on like this.
However, it can be difficult to talk to someone we know about the things that we're struggling with.
This is where counselling can help you to work through such issues, and to help you make positive change in your life.
You don't have to go through it alone - 8 out of 10 clients report that it was good to talk.
