Psychotherapy – Adult Neurodiversity / Autism

At The Health Suite, we understand that neurological differences are natural variations in the human brain

About

Research would suggest that neurodiversity refers to ‘impaired’ cognitive as well as emotional features in the brain.

Our understanding, however, is that neurological differences – such as autism, dyslexia and dyspraxia – are natural variations in the human brain.

Society at large pathologises these conditions and focuses on curing them. We know that these conditions can come with a huge range of issues, including trauma. At The Health Suite, we believe in embracing differences and focusing on the strengths and talents that neurodiversity brings.

If this is something that you have been thinking about, why not book a consultation with our expert psychotherapist, Tahirah Yasin.

She has much experience in this area and is able to recognise traits that are indicative of a person belonging to the neurodiverse spectrum. If needed, she can then refer you to other members of our team to make an official diagnosis.

Treatment

Neurodiversity is the concept that humans don’t come in a one-size-fits-all neurologically “normal” package.

Instead, it recognises that all variations of human neurological function need to be respected as just another way of being.

One of Tahirah’s favourite books is Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism by Dr. Barry M. Prizant, who portrays autism not as a tragic disability, but as a unique way of being human.  Dr Prizant found the most successful approach was not trying to “fix people” by eliminating symptoms, but rather seeking to understand an individual’s experience and what underlies their behaviours.

This is the approach we take at The Health Suite too. Our therapist is not there to fix but to help the client understand their own uniqueness.
