No matter the age of your family member, nor whether they have a diagnosis or not, my services are available to you. Whether you are a grandparent, a sibling, a child, or any other relation, they can provide you with specific insight into your personal situation, such as:

  • exactly how to do what you need to do

  • where to start if your loved one has just received a diagnosis

  • clarifying your neurodiverse family member's needs

  • how to approach crisis situations and difficult behaviour

  • what resources are available

  • understanding your relative's neurodiverse mind

  • how to apply professional recommendations into your everyday life

  • breaking through the overwhelm

  • what can be done to help beyond what is already being done

  • seeking new information and ideas

  • researching services, programs, policies, laws, resources etc.

  • how to promote and/or maintain independence

  • and more……

If you are looking for help with something that is not listed here, don't hesitate to contact me to find out if I can help.

Family Member Services

SERVICES

I work directly with you to understand your priorities and to determine your needs. 

Together, we reflect on your personal goals as well as your goals for your loved one, and find real-life strategies for supporting your family member's learning and growth or providing the most effective care possible.

I always strive to respect personal limitations, values and beliefs,

and understand and acknowledge who you and your loved ones are.

Given that they are needs based and solution oriented, some services may be available as an independent service or as a specifically tailored package based on a completed needs assessment.

You can find more information below, or you can book a free thirty minute phone or virtual call to discuss your situation and get a personalized recommendation about which service would best meet your needs.

Family Members: Online Coaching

"Coaching is a process that aims to improve performance and focuses on the ‘here and now’ rather than on the distant past or future.

While there are many different models of coaching, here we are not considering the ‘coach as expert’ but, instead, the coach as a facilitator of learning.

There is a huge difference between teaching someone and helping them to learn. In coaching, fundamentally, the coach is helping the individual to improve their own performance: in other words, helping them to learn.

Good coaches believe that the individual always has the answer to their own problems but understands that they may need help to find the answer."
