Neuro-Affirming Practice

Neuro-Affirming Practice


This course will draw on my lived experience as a late diagnosed autistic (and multiply neurodivergent human), my past professional experience as a disability practitioner and my work as a therapist and supervisor who specialises in working with clients who are looking to explore their neurodivergent identity. In it we will cover the neurodiversity paradigm and how it can inform our practice and support us to be affirming of our neurodivergent clients.

Feedback for this Workshop

'A really accessible and informative piece of training'

'This training was inclusive, informative and provided great points of reflection for both myself and my client work. Would highly recommend.'


'Really eye opening and interesting. Gave me lots to think about! Louise explains things really well and is easy to listen to.'

Sarah, Psychotherapist.

My favourite part of the training was the hope given that there might be a way of me working that will work for me and those I support without the cycle of stress and burnout that I've been in for the last 20 years. I also loved that the trainer made it clear we could 'come as we are' without stipulations around cameras, active participation etc. Training for adults and being treated like adults!

Kelly Garrington

Excellent, accessible talk which gives a really thorough and clear overview of working with neurodivergence. Louise's use of own personal lived experience brings it all alive.

Chloe Foster - Counsellor

HIGHLY recommend the training if you are supporting neurodiverse/neurodivergent clients!!!
