Be Your Best Academy recognizes the integral importance of therapy to the neurodivergent population, both in advocating for their needs and in encouraging self-inquiry and growth.

We deeply value the work therapeutic practitioners undertake to better the lives of their clients.

Professional Development Resources for Therapists

Do you have any neurodiverse clients?

This bundle is called "Identity Narratives". It is a therapist resource  designed for best practice.

Many neurodivergent clients will present with difficulties or struggles within their identity: be it their diagnosis, sexuality, gender or need to conform to societal standards. A strong sense of self makes us able to cope more readily with depression, anxiety and change.

This resource supports your clinical practice to better guide your neurodivergent clients with greater compassion, knowledge and kindness.


Included in this comprehensive bundle are informative lessons to help you follow best practice in neurodiversity, along with practical 'homework' PDF sheets and educationals for your client(s).

Bundle Includes

  • Licensed resources to use and share with clients

  • Watermark-free downloads

  • Electronically fillable PDFs

  • 21 fully referenced lessons for you

  • 28 interactive psychological worksheets for your client

  • Essential knowledge for best practice

  • Additional links for further reading

Autumn O'Connor is committed to personal and professional development and inquiry, and holds strongly that all people have the capacity for change. Being able to support therapists to give their neurodivergent clients a more holistic exploration of Self is one part of Autumn's work that she finds of utmost importance.
