I have vast experience of Asperger’s and Autism and the difficulties that individuals face and also the impact on other family members.
My work in the community involved parenting support/advice and involved supporting families with complicated family dynamics and emotional and behavioural issues.
My clear cut, empathetic approach to clients struggling with low self-esteem has been particularly supportive. There are many reasons for low self-esteem and these can often begin in childhood and manifest itself in other behaviours and traits throughout adulthood if left untreated.
Once we realise and accept that it is ‘ok to not be ok’ then it is a step in right direction of acceptance and by unpicking what is/has happened, it becomes possible to find a way forward.
