Caring can be incredibly demanding. Have you ever –
Whoever you are caring for, it’s essential you are cared for too. Let me help.
Maybe you don’t know what you need, if you’ve always done things yourself you may not know what support looks like.
And I mean really listen; this is a place you will be heard.
Whatever you are going through, we will explore your concerns together.
Whether it’s emotional or practical support you want, you aren’t alone.
I’ve worked with – and live with – individuals who experience the world differently to me. I use this experience to make sure I’m communicating clearly and listening carefully to your experience; giving you the opportunity to share your reality.
Navigating the world can be difficult for any of us, and when you have been told your experience is wrong you may wonder how to move forward. Whether this is you, or the person you are caring for, I can help with strategies which will build confidence in your strengths and theirs.
Helping you to help those you care about – by sharing tools, skills and understanding – they will build their future with positivity.
You can be positive about your future, discovering what that looks like with those you love.
Different is not less. When you care for someone who processes the world differently to you, it’s important to remember that.
While the way your child, partner, or parent, sees the world, might not align with your perspective; if you learn to see things their way – you’ll be amazed at what you discover. Give your relationship new opportunities for growth by giving yourselves the time and space to get to know each other better. Together you’ll be able to understand strengths they may have kept hidden or beliefs they haven’t felt able to share.
Understanding yourself and your loved one better, might be scary but you’re not alone.
You may have heard the saying “You can’t give from an empty cup”, it’s something I say a lot.
So many of us focus on caring for others without taking time to look after ourselves; but you need to feed your own energy supply before you can lend that energy to others. It’s not selfish to look after your own needs – it’s essential.
Don’t wait until you’re struggling to cope.
Maybe your child is neurodiverse, or maybe you are. Communicating well is difficult even without barriers, so don’t be scared to ask for help. Misunderstandings are common – but with help, you will understand each other better.
Learning to understand will help communication and make negotiation possible because everyone is understood. You can see how making changes, or adaptations, will enable those you are caring for – by creating positive situations you will build better relationships.
No, we can’t change the past, but we can create the future; take one small step and, with time and new knowledge, you have the key. Let me help.
It can feel like you’ll never understand each other, but I can help.
Together we’ll focus on the positive aspects of your relationship and those things which make your loved one exceptional. Together we’ll help you see a brighter future.
As you grow and learn together, you’ll see each other differently – moving away from friction and despair to understanding and support.
Let me help you.
