Autistic people are particularly vulnerable to low mood and anxiety because most environments are set up in ways that require the person to adapt to fit in or cope.
You can do well and overcome the challenges you face with the right support and in the right environment. I can help to think about how to adapt the environment to your needs and/or to develop skills and strategies to cope.
Autistic people often like the structured nature of CBT, and small adaptations can make a difference to more successful therapy. There is also growing evidence that EMDR therapy can be really helpful to reduce the intensity of emotions that the memory of some past events have in our lives.
