How Therapy Can Help

Our team of experienced therapists is equipped with specialized training to effectively address a broad spectrum of neurodivergent needs.

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD):

Therapy for individuals with ASD focuses on enhancing communication skills, social interaction, and behaviour management. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, sensory integration and social skills training are common approaches used to help individuals with ASD thrive and reach their full potential.

Learning Disabilities:
 

Therapy for individuals with learning disabilities, can integrate a skills-based approach by assessing strengths and weaknesses, setting SMART goals, and designing sessions focused on specific skill-building activities tailored to the individual's needs. Our therapists can also collaborate with school and home environments, monitoring progress, and fostering empowerment and self-advocacy. 

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD):

Therapy for ADHD often includes cognitive-behavioral strategies to improve focus, organization, and time management. Additionally, therapy can address emotional regulation, self-esteem, and interpersonal relationships, helping individuals with ADHD develop coping skills and succeed in various aspects of life.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD):

Therapy for OCD typically involves Cognitive-Behavioural Techniques to challenge and modify obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours. Our therapists can also integrate mindfulness techniques into treatment through Acceptance and Commitment Therapy or Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. 

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

Hi, I'm Rohama!

I specialize in working with neurodivergence, particularly ADHD. With experience assisting students and young adults from diverse backgrounds, I help navigate the challenges associated with various learning disabilities. My approach emphasizes skill-building, focusing on specific strategies to optimize strengths and mitigate difficulties in daily life. It can be challenging to navigate a new diagnosis or overwhelming symptoms. Recognizing that no two brains function alike, identifying your unique strengths and challenges can facilitate a more balanced and holistic approach to personal growth.

Anna Riddell, LGBTQ Couples Therapist, Polyamory Therapist

Hi, I'm Anna!

I am committed to neurodivergence affirming practice, which recognizes the variance in human brains and the importance of respecting these differences. My approach to counselling is non-pathologizing and strengths-based. I aim to support individuals with their challenges, without trying to ‘correct' aspects related to neurodivergence. I draw from my experience working as a counsellor with young adults with Autism and ADHD. My practice is also informed by my experience as a teacher; I have training in Special Education and experience supporting students with Autism, ADHD and Learning Disabilities. I can provide support with social communication, self regulation, self-esteem and goal-setting.
