PEER SUPPORT

What is
peer support?

A peer support session is a collaborative process in which we brainstorm ways to help you, based on your resources, needs, and Neurodivergent profile, in combination with my own lived experience and the resources and knowledge I’ve gathered.

 

You might have a specific question or a problem you’re trying to solve, or you just want to chat about your Neurodivergent experiences more broadly, with someone who may understand what you’re going through.

Peer support is not psychotherapy, nor is it a replacement for it, and I can’t provide you with a diagnosis.

 

I might not have all of the information you need right away, especially about local services in your area, but I will do my best to provide what I can, in the time we have available.

What CAN we do together?

Explore your unique sensory processing profile

We can talk about the unique way you perceive and register your sensory world both within and outside of you so we can come up with ways to best support you throughout your days.

Understand your executive functioning profile

I know from personal experience how frustrating it is when the way your brain works doesn't seem to align with all the demands the world expects from you. We can discuss how executive functions work and brainstorm possible ways to help you.

Work through self-awareness and self-acceptance

Coming to terms with the fact you are different can be challenging to do alone. We can talk about what self-acceptance means for you and different ways we can foster it so you become more and more comfortable with your Neurodivergent self. 

Gain insight into social skills, communication and interpersonal relationships

Relationships are complicated for everyone, regardless of their neurotype. Still, differences in both interests and communication skills, as well as specific aspects of our cognitive processing, have made fostering relationships more difficult than in comparison to our 

neurotypical counterparts. Let's talk about it!
