I work with couple where one or both individuals identifies as neurodivergent. I also work with individuals, parent and adult child, siblings, and other platonic relationships.

The issues that clients usually bring are the impacts of communication differences and mutual misunderstandings, i.e. trauma responses of shutting down, losing your words, or melting down, may be experienced as rejection, the cold shoulder, or scary temper tantrums, by a partner. It’s difficult to feel safe in situations like this, difficult to maintain desire for each other and a hope for the future.
I am trained in an approach known as Imago Relationship Therapy, which emphasises safe communication.
The approach:

Is structured and easily learn for use between sessions.

Provides space to think, hear and process what you hear.

Provides the powerful experience of being heard, and understood or validated your your partner. The feeling that someone ‘gets you’ can be rare for many of us who identify as neurodivergent, especially if we were missed/misidentified growing up.

Involves you and your partner consciously creating a joint plan for your life together.

Enables you to move beyond your comfort zones which possibly involved masking, to a more authentic intimacy and a deeper love.

If this resonates with you, get in touch, and let’s discuss your needs, wants and desires for your relationship.
