Relationship Counselling for Neuro-diverse Couples

When one or both partners are neuro-diverse, keeping a healthy relationship may be extra difficult. Communication, intimacy, sensory issues, and difficulty understanding each other can be difficult in any relationship.
Undiagnosed neurodiversity can make these things extra difficult, and if you know you or your partner are autistic, learning to more easily understand each other in a relationship is crucial.
If you’re not sure and are wondering if neurodiversity is a part of the picture with your relationship difficulties, this blog article should help.
As we all know, relationships can be difficult and complicated at times, but when one or both partners are neuro-diverse, many more difficulties usually arise. That’s because ASD/ASC is primarily a social-emotional-communication difference.
Being able to express your emotions and be emotionally supportive of each other is the lifeblood of a healthy relationship. This can be difficult though, if you are in a neuro-diverse marriage, and over time you can both run out of energy trying to deal with these challenges.
We find many of our adult clients, particularly those whose children have had a formal diagnosis, don’t feel they need a formal diagnosis and are really after specialised help with their relationship issues that involve ASD, and this is our area of specialty.
