Autism & neurodiversity therapy – NDIS

Autism & neurodiversity counselling

Using a neurodiversity-affirming perspective, and trauma-informed practice, Gabrielle works with autistic and neurodivergent children, adolescents and adults, to support your wellbeing.

This may include therapeutic support for the goals you’d like to achieve in your life, or working together to create individual strategies to help you or your child thrive.

As a late-diagnosed neurodivergent woman, and a member of a neurodivergent family, Gabrielle has lots of lived experience as well as extensive clinical expertise in this area. She can draw on both her personal and professional experience to add to the depth of understanding and support you will receive.

Autism therapy online – Australia

If you can’t attend autism and neurodiversity therapy in person, here in our office, you can work with Gabrielle online or by phone.

Some of the benefits of online counselling include being able to stay in the comfort of your own space, and being able to access neurodiversity-affirming support from anywhere in Australia.

Please contact Gabrielle if you’d like to learn more about online counselling and therapeutic support.

NDIS Support Provider 

For people who have an NDIS plan that is self-managed or plan-managed, Gabrielle offers:

  • Early childhood support* for children aged 3-7
  • Therapeutic Support for people aged 7 years and older.



*Neurodiversity is the natural diversity in human brain neurology and processing.

Neurodiversity embraces autism, ADHD and other neuro-developmental conditions as natural, important and valuable parts of the spectrum of human possibilities.

As part of a neurodiversity-affirming perspective, Gabrielle prefers to use inclusive language, such as ‘early childhood support’ rather than terms like ‘Early Childhood Early Intervention’, because autism and neurodiversity do not require ‘intervening in’ or ‘fixing’.
