Why is this needed?

Many of our clients’ employers are unaware of how neurodiverse conditions affect their colleagues and the difficulties faced by those with:

  • Acquired Brain Injury
  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Acquired Brain Injury
  • Dyslexia & Dyspraxia
  • Autistic Spectrum Conditions
  • ADHD
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Dyspraxia

Our clients are sometimes unaware as well, which means that they haven’t asked for help for they need. They are only aware of how stressed they are and how no-one seems to be able to help. This can cause a lot of stress and frustration on both parts.

Co-coaching gives both parties a chance to talk through their experience and resolve misunderstandings. We look at what will be important in the future for a good working relationship. This might entail reasonable adjustments, such as being allowed to wear earplugs to block background noise and also compromises, such as only wearing ear plugs certain days or when reports are being read. It might also include agreements on how to communicate e.g particular phrases to use such as “I can’t answer that question right now, can I get back to you by close of the day?” or “I’m only going to remember half of that, can you pause a second and I’ll write it down / record you on my phone?”
