COACHING SERVICES provided by Deanna Picon
At YOUR AUTISM COACH, I know firsthand what you're going through. Raising a child with autism or special needs requires a considerable amount of skill, inner strength and self-discipline to cope with all the demands placed on you. In addition, you have to struggle to find appropriate educational programs and therapeutic services for your child.
However, I've found that one of the biggest challenges to managing everything is not having anyone to talk to or share your deepest concerns with. And although, there are friends and family members, you may not feel comfortable speaking to them about your true feelings. Isolation can
become your worst enemy. It's during these times that you need to confide in someone you trust and can be honest with.
Coaching isn't psychotherapy. I don't work on your past. My role is to be "in the present" and move you forward, so you can focus on your future. At YOUR AUTISM COACH, coaching is a collaborative process and based on a partnership.
My coaching sessions can help you learn more about yourself and make the desired changes in your life that will benefit both you, your child and your family. I'll partner and work with you to:
- identify and implement personal and achievable goals
- create positive, action plans
- develop new skills and coping strategies
- turn obstacles into opportunities
- gain clarity and perspective
A child's disability also impacts family relationships, which is why I also work with couples, siblings, grandparents and other family members.
