I am a mum of three ASD children and my oldest is 24 years old (who actually now works for me as our support staff coordinator and the kids just adore him), so having 24 years of experience raising and living with ASD/ADHD/social disorder/dyslexia certainly gives me a very real perspective of what families are going through and feeling in their times of need and daily struggles. I myself also have high functioning Asperger’s syndrome on top of all of my training and qualifications so it’s safe to say we really are specialists in our field.
All of our staff regularly up skill every year and we are proud members of the Australian counselling association.
We provide a really unique form of counselling, far from the typical clinical experience that people are used to, besides the fact that we are mobile so the client can feel comfortable and avoid undue distress by not having to take the child out. We work with the entire family, not just the child. In my experience, taking a child out of their comfort zone and away from crucial supports like mum/dad caregivers and so forth for an hour of “therapy” is highly unproductive and rarely produces any achievements or progress therefore not really helping the family dynamics or personal growth for the client. So armed with this knowledge, we redefined the approach to therapy to what we practice today, and the results speak for themselves! We are happy to share our personal experiences and how it affected us to help clients realise that we really do get it! We love the transparency between ourselves and our clients, our clients absolutely thrive with our system, we are also on call for all of our clients 24/7 free of charge as we believe it is a crucial part of support and progress to be there for our clients in the heat of the moment to help walk them through our learned strategies in real time, if the phone call becomes unhelpful we have no hesitation in jumping in the car and heading over to help guide the family through any issue.
It is hard to put onto paper all the things we do for ASD families and clients, so a brief overview of some of the things we do looks a little something like this:
