I find it somewhat humbling to admit that despite five years of psychotherapy training, I gained no insight into neurodivergent conditions such as Autism, ADHD and Giftedness, nor how they manifest in individuals. It was my engagement with content from Autistic creators on TikTok that mirrored my experiences, leading me to seek a formal diagnosis, primarily due to concerns about my own biases.
Some telltale signs of neurodivergent processing include feeling out of sync with those around you, having intense focus on specific interests, experiencing challenges with traditional learning or working environments, or finding that conventional approaches to problem-solving don’t always work for you. Maybe you’ve noticed these patterns and wondered why. If this resonates with you, I might be able to help shed light on the questions you may have.
