Auternative coaching is a new coaching service specifically designed for autistic individuals and their families and caregivers.
Whether you are an autistic adult who is feeling anxious and stuck in a rut, or a parent and caregiver who is feeling overwhelmed and doesn’t know where to turn for support - we can help.
Coaching is a proven, effective way to empower people to make decisions and affect change in their lives, and at Auternative Coaching we passionately believe that with the right support everyone can grow and develop the skills they need to lead happy and fulfilling lives.
Our coaching method is based on the principles of neuro-linguistic programming and positive psychology coupled with a new way of viewing autism using a strengths based approach.
All of our coaches have first hand experience of autism and its challenges, a Diploma of Applied NLP : Autism Coaching and at least four years experience of working with autistic individuals and their families.
We offer three core services; individual 121 coaching for autistic adults; a group coaching course for parents/carers of children on the autism spectrum, and individual 121 coaching for parents/carers.
Coaching for autistic adults
Our coaching service for autistic adults is designed to help people overcome any blocks that are holding them back. We do this by decreasing stress levels, breaking the cycle of negative thinking, and improving self belief, resourcefulness and motivation.
One to one coaching for autistic adults costs £25 per session and we recommend a block of eight sessions for £200 to get the most out of our service. All sessions are currently held remotely online via Zoom, Whatsapp or Skype.
Coaching for parents and carers of children on the autism spectrum
Our coaching for parents offers a flexible approach that can be tailored to individual needs. We help parents to develop a better understanding of their child’s behaviour and how best to support them, with a focus on wellbeing for the whole family.
We recommend a block of six sessions for £180 (£30 per session) or we have a pay as you go option with sessions costing £35. All sessions are currently held online via Zoom.
Group coaching for parents and carers of children on the autism spectrum
Our parent and carers group course consists of six sessions bringing together people who are in similar situations, enabling them to relate, learn and support each other.
Each session focuses on a different topic such as dealing with emotions and negative thinking, reducing stress and anxiety, and building on talents to develop a growth mindset. Our aim is to empower parents to adapt their parenting style to better meet the needs of their children, and to help them rediscover confidence in their parenting abilities, so they can feel calmer and enjoy their family life. The course costs £120 with the option to pay in installments. This is an online course held via Zoom.
