Autistic natural mental health mentoring

Welcome to autistic mental health mentoring

The huge human and creative potential of autistic persons is too often obscured by the mental health difficulties we develop going through life with minimal self-knowledge, acting against our needs and integrity while following unhelpful mainstream advice.

Nutrition: the bodily foundation for feeling safe

This might be surprising, but for a lot of sensitive people (many auties are almost by definition in that category) the gut-brain axis is a big thing. The standard approach to mental issues has recently become the “brain chemical imbalance” theory. While I’ve spent about 6 years studying how the brain works, for me theContinue reading “Nutrition: the bodily foundation for feeling safe”
