Personalised Autism Therapy in Manchester

Expert support for your therapeutic journey with a compassionate and understanding approach

Welcome to Jodie James Counselling Services, where I am dedicated to helping individuals with autism navigate the complexities of neurodiversity. As an experienced therapist in Manchester, I understand that each individual's experience with autism is unique. That's why I tailor my therapeutic approach to suit your specific needs.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch and take the first step towards a happier, more fulfilled life. I look forward to working with you.

My Therapeutic Approach

I believe in the power of a personalised, client-centred approach to therapy. I understand that each individual's journey is unique, and I am committed to providing a tailored experience that respects your autonomy and expertise in your own life.


My therapeutic framework includes a Client-Centred Approach: I believe that you are the expert on your own life and experiences. My client-centred approach empowers you to take control of your healing process by providing guidance, support, and understanding. I blend this with Transactional Analysis (TA) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)  techniques to help you identify and change unhelpful patterns in your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that may be contributing to your autism-related symptoms.

Understanding Autism and Therapies

Autism is a neurodevelopmental condition characterised by a range of abilities that affect communication, social interactions, and sensory processing. Each individual's experience with autism is unique, and the condition is considered a spectrum due to the wide variety of strengths and challenges it presents.

Therapeutic Framework for Autism Support

As an experienced therapist in autism, I utilise various therapeutic frameworks to support your therapeutic journey. Each approach is tailored to your individual needs and preferences, ensuring you receive the most effective and compassionate care possible. Our Client-Centred approach places you at the centre of your support process, respecting your autonomy, individuality, and expertise on your own experiences. Together, we create a trusting and supportive therapeutic relationship where you can safely explore your emotions and experiences related to autism.

Finding the Right Support for Your Autism Journey

Autism is a complex and deeply personal condition, and finding the right therapeutic support is crucial. At Jodie James Counselling Services, I am committed to creating a safe, supportive, and understanding environment where you can explore your experiences. By utilising a variety of evidence-based therapeutic frameworks, I help you build resilience, enhance your well-being, and navigate the complexities of living with autism.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Autism

How long does autism therapy typically last?

The duration of autism therapy varies depending on each individual's unique circumstances, progress, and therapeutic goals. While some people may benefit from short-term therapy, others may require ongoing support. As your therapist, I will work closely with you to assess your needs and adjust the therapy duration accordingly, ensuring you receive the most appropriate care.

As an experienced therapist who has worked with neurodiverse clients, I am committed to providing compassionate, personalised care to support you. By utilising a range of evidence-based therapeutic frameworks and tailoring the approach to your specific needs, I aim to help you develop effective coping strategies, build resilience, and enhance your overall well-being.


Can autism therapy be provided online or over the phone?

Yes, I offer various modes of interaction to accommodate your needs and preferences. In addition to face-to-face sessions, I provide therapy via Zoom/Video call, telephone, and walking therapy. This flexibility allows you to access the support you need in a manner that is most comfortable and convenient for you.

I recognise that each person with autism has unique needs, strengths, and challenges. As such, I tailor my approach to suit your specific requirements, preferences, and therapeutic goals. By listening carefully to your experiences and concerns, I can adjust the therapeutic process to ensure that you receive the most effective and compassionate support possible. This might include adjusting the pace of therapy, incorporating different therapeutic techniques, or accommodating specific sensory or communication preferences.
