CBT FOR AUTISM

CBT CAN BE VERY EFFECTIVE FOR PEOPLE WITH A DIAGNOSIS OF ASC.

CBT allows people to apply scientific principles to their own experiences and identify patterns that allow us to establish where change would be most effective. This approach can be great for people with ASC as it allows us to work at a pace that suits you and focus's entirely on what you feel the difficulty is. 1st For CBT have professionally accredited CBT therapists who have worked with autism for years and have adapted this therapeutic approach to make it as autism friendly as possible.  

We offer a range of specialist services for Adults and Children with a diagnosis of an ASC.  We also offer training and support for the families and loved ones of those who wish to learn more about the condition, and bespoke training packages for professionals:

  • One to One psychological therapies adapted to work with ASC for adults and children.
  • Autism Diagnostic Assessments (using the ADI-R & ADOS Assessment tools) 
  • Social Communication Support

ONE TO ONE THERAPY 

Life can be difficult and stressful for all of us and sometimes this can make us feel lonely and uncertain as to what to do next. This can be especially true for people on the autistic spectrum who, because of their unique experience of modern life may often feel confused or unsafe. 
1st For CBT provides one-to-one therapy for adults and children, adapted to meet the unique needs of people with ASC. Our sessions together will use simple but sophisticated approaches that will allow you to learn lifelong skills to overcome your difficulties and feel more connected to the things that matter the most to you
