Whilst autism cannot be cured, there are effective ways to help manage symptoms

Cognitive behavioural therapy is one of the most successful treatment for autism options.

CBT teaches social and emotional awareness and enables the individual to develop a ‘toolbox’ of successful coping mechanisms to help deal with difficult, anxiety inducing situations.

CBT works well because the individual is encouraged to adapt the skills taught in their own way, making them a better ‘fit’ and therefore more likely to be used effectively.

CBT can be very successful in helping the individual overcome some of the negative thought patterns they may adopt and as a result can improve feelings of depression, anxiety and low self worth.

Relationship counselling

We know that being in a relationship with someone who receives a diagnosis of autism can be difficult. The relationship can be put under a lot of strain and it can be hard to discuss feelings, leading to resentment and even relationship break downs.

Relationship counselling, with a therapist with experience of working with autism, can really improve things. The counselling provides a safe space for both parties to discuss their emotions and develop healthier ways of relating, whilst the counsellor can help the couple find workable solutions to some of the difficulties commonly experienced in these situations.

Family therapy

Family therapy can help partners, children, parents and grandparents work through any difficulties that might arise when someone in the family has autism. Common problems include sibling rivalry, a lack of understanding as to what autism means, conflict around parenting styles and frustrations with challenging behaviour.

The therapist will work with you to determine successful coping strategies and mechanisms to achieve a fulfilling and happy family life. By airing frustrations in a safe, non-judgemental environment the atmosphere at home can often improve drastically as family members gain an understanding of each other’s points of view and common goals can be worked towards.

  • Many thanks for this and all your work in helping us get here far more swiftly than we have managed with the NHS. It is much appreciated, and you and Dr Chowdhury have helped greatly in relieving the stress we have been feeling by getting us to a place where we know what is going on, and what we need to do for our son.

  • I would recommend Clinical Partners to anyone who has been struggling with getting a diagnosis, it can totally transform your lives as it has ours.

  • I was fed up with life when I contacted Katie at Clinical Partners, her response to my call and the support thereafter kept me alive.

  • Dr Alison was very caring and approachable. Your approach and response to my call will be remembered for a very long time.

  • Just saw J. He wanted me to tell you how much he appreciated the way you spoke to him on the phone Caroline. He said you made him feel human again when he felt quite suicidal. He was really pleased he was seen so quickly.

  • We met with the doctor today, he was great, we felt at ease with him, he was very professional in his approach and obviously knew what he was doing! Thank you for your help in arranging such a quick appointment.

  • SO grateful to Clinical Partners - well Simon - for the confirmation of NOT having Cyclothymia. Am attempting now to stabilise and get well - something I was told would not happen when diagnosed with Cyclothymia (for life!).

  • I would like to thank the Clinical Partners staff for asking about us. I like to let you know that M's physical and psychological health is great. With my best regards and respect.

  • You have been fantastic at helping T see the help he can get and I am so grateful. Again thank you so much, I really do appreciate the efforts you have put in.
