The Right Therapist Will Understand
Neurodiverse people, like autistic people or people who have ADHD, respond differently to life events and manage stress in different ways, compared to neurotypical people.
When your therapist understands these differences, they will adjust their methods accordingly. They will give you intervention techniques tailored to neurodiverse needs.
The Right Therapist Will Not Treat You Like Someone You’re Not
The right therapist for you will not want to make you act like a neurotypical person. They will work to help you to embrace your differences, and work with them to achieve your personal mental health and life goals.
