Neurodiversity-Affirming Cross-Neurotype Couples Package

Traditional couple therapy does not usually take into consideration differences in neurotypes (brains/nervous systems) that impact couples where one or both partners are neurodivergent. It often fails to assess the core issues in a cross-neurotype relationship and uses approaches based on neurotypical assumptions.

This five-session package may be ideal for you and your partner if one or both of you identify as neurodivergent and you both want to:


understand how your neurotypes impact your relationship


understand what aspects of you or your partner’s perception and behaviour are and aren’t changeable based on neurotype


honestly examine what each of you can and can’t accept and develop clarity on your absolute bottom line for a satisfying couple relationship


make an informed decision on whether to accept what can’t be changed and change what can to build a more satisfying, non-traditional relationship or to ‘call it’ and consciously uncouple

“I combine my therapy skills with ten years of academic teaching to help ACCEPT Couples participants understand and improve communication across neurotypes. By understanding how neurodivergence impacts their relationship and learning to balance acceptance with change, participants will reduce frustration and increase satisfaction in their partnership. I bring my own lived experience of being in an ND/NT relationship of over 30 years.”
