Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much do you charge? Please check out our guide prices here

  • Can I pay in instalments? Yes

  • If I sign up for the assessment programme do I have to have the coaching? Yes, the coaching is a part of the service, there are plenty of providers who are happy to diagnose you and give no support, we are not one of those providers.

  • Are you Qualified to diagnose autism? Yes, our therapist has been working within the NHS and private clinics diagnosing autism, the package we offer is a diagnostic consultation. Nic has a particular interest in working with autistic women and in gender identity within autism.

  • Is this recognised on the NHS? Some GP's will and some won’t accept it, therefore it is advisable to check with your GP prior to our work if you require this to be recognised on the NHS. Some people only need the validation that a diagnosis offers and the ability to know who they are, if this is you then this is the perfect programme.
  • Why do you only work with adults on the assessment programme? There are many more steps to a child diagnosis and whilst we appreciate children needing this service it isn’t one we can offer at this stage.

  • What's the difference between a full autism assessment and what you offer? A diagnostic consultation is a clinical opinion about whether you would meet the diagnostic thresholds if a full and comprehensive assessment was carried out.
  • What do you cover in the coaching? Coaching is tailored to the person we’re working with however there are some common challenges that we’ll cover such as masking and unmasking, executive functioning hacks, reducing meltdowns, shutdowns and burnout, uncovering triggers, communication, sensory processing and generally moving forward in your power.

  • How long is the wait? We try and keep the waiting times down, currently we are booking autism assessments in April 2022 and coaching packages are available from April onwards

  • Why do you only work with women and girls? Because this is my experience, I am an autistic woman and I know the struggles that other women face when it comes to being taken seriously. The majority of my team are autistic women and if we have the availability we are more than happy to work with and support autistic males as well as non-binary people.
