Natalie Fernando

Counsellor


About me

I am a counsellor, a coach and a mother of 4 children, 3 teenage girls and a little boy. Two of my children are neurodiverse.

As a parent of two neurodiverse children, one who has incredibly complex and profound needs, I believe this gives me a greater personal understanding along with the skills acquired over the last 16 years to be able to help clients process and move forward.

Training, qualifications & training

Experience

I am a fully qualified counsellor, completing my training in psychodynamic counselling with a BACP accredited course in 2008.

For the last 15 years I have been working with clients in all areas of counselling and coaching including addiction, bereavement, processing change and stress management.

Working extensively with people with neurodiversity in their lives, from individuals new to diagnosis or with parents and carers helping them to understand and manage the life changing situation they often may find
themselves in along with processing their feelings.

My expertise has led me into the field of training and speaking, from schools to small, medium and larger size businesses, developing and delivering various training programmes from assertiveness, motivation, processing change through to confidence, self-esteem and neurodiversity.

Working with businesses and charities to help them understand and support their employees and/or families who have neurodiversity in their lives is something I feel passionate about, I run several courses and support employees and individuals with 1:1 counselling or coaching sessions
