If you’ve recently been diagnosed autistic, and/or you’re in burnout (or coming out of burnout) and want to explore creating a life and work that will meet your autistic needs, this is for you.
My intention is to take a small group of autistic women and nonbinary people on a journey of self discovery around work, fulfilment and figuring out what you want out of life – and how to get it.
I’ve been investing in my own personal development since 2014, when I was still an undiagnosed high school teacher in burnout, convinced I was trapped in that role and that life forever.
Since then, I’ve seen first hand the power of both one to one and group coaching and mentoring. I’ve had some huge breakthroughs personally, professionally and financially, and I’ve manifested things into my life as a direct result of a combination of mindset work and taking action (that action bit is important!).
I’m not holding myself up as any kind of ‘guru’; we are all on the same journey and in this together. I am the facilitator, there to hold space for you and guide you.
I’m not a millionaire (not even close! 😂). I don’t run a 7-figure business. But I have changed my work and life to meet my needs as an autistic woman with health challenges. I’ve attracted people who are on my wavelength, who I enjoy working with.
And I’ve managed to thrive, despite being unable to work full time.
I want to share with you some of the things I’ve learned over the past eight years about mindset, attraction, taking action, and building a new life as a newly diagnosed autistic woman after a career-ending burnout.
Let’s get started.
I’ve created these workshops based on my own journey over the past 8 years – what I’ve learned both from experience and through investing in my self development.
They’ve gone through one live round in early 2022, and a second cohort is starting in August 2022 – so these are tried and tested, and have been revised and tweaked a little, based on feedback and my experience of delivering them.
But this will be, in part, a co-creation with you. I’ll be checking in as we go through to make sure it’s working for you, and to hear your thoughts and suggestions for how to make these sessions exactly what you need.
Session 1: Meet Your Future Self
Who do you want to be? What do you want to be, do and have – if you could have anything? I take you through an exercise that has helped me bring about massive change in my own life.
Session 2: Rebuilding and Reconnecting
Who are you really, under the mask? This session is all about beginning the process of rebuilding yourself from the ground up, through reconnecting with your younger/unmasked self.
Session 3: Bridging the Gap
In this session we look at where you are now, and focus on bridging the gap between past, present and future you. We think about your specific needs as an autistic person and what you actually need to be happy, secure and fulfilled.
Session 4: Exploring Your ‘Why’
What’s the purpose behind what you do and love? This is important to a lot of people, but seems to be especially so for autistic people. In this session we tap into your life philosophy, higher purpose and special interests and discover how these might connect with your future life and work.
Session 5: Mindset
In this session we examine your beliefs (and self belief), the stories you tell yourself and the stories you’ve inherited and absorbed, and explore how you can empower yourself to rewrite your own story and create a life that feels more like you – one that fits your autistic self better.
Session 6: Action!
I don’t know about you, but I know I live in my head a LOT. It’s important that we don’t get stuck in ‘research mode’ – or dream big dreams that we forget to actually take action on.
Now it’s time for some strategy, planning and practical steps to start moving you forward into the next stage of your life and career/business/work. This session is all about taking action – however small.
