Autism and ADHD Coaching


Coaching facilitates another person’s learning, development, well-being and performance for both their professional and personal lives. Coaching increases self-awareness and enables people to find their own solutions, develop skills, and change unhelpful attitudes and behaviours. We recognise that coaching adults or young people with ADHD and/or autism requires specific skills and experience.

People with autism and/or ADHD face a number of difficulties in their day to day lives.  Coaching can work well for many of these difficulties, including:

  • Communication
  • Social skills
  • Relationships – personal and professional
  • Managing sensory sensitivities
  • Coping with the school or work environment
  • Organisational skills
  • Managing transitions and change
  • Managing difficult emotions
  • Developing impulse control

Our coach:

Cara Langford Watts has a post graduate qualification in coaching and mentoring and is accredited as a senior practitioner with European Mentoring and Coaching Council. Cara is trained as a psychotherapeutic counsellor and has worked in many senior roles within strategy, policy and project development. More recently Cara has worked for over two years as an assistant psychologist within the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Neurodevelopmental Conditions Service, developing specialist knowledge and experience in working with young people with autism and ADHD.
