Help for Anxiety

Autism - Children

The majority of children with Autism, and particularly those with a demand avoidant profile (PDA), will suffer from high levels of anxiety. This can lead to times where the child, or young person, becomes so distressed that their behaviour can appear out of control, or they appear to be having what looks like a panic attack.

This can be extremely distressing for both the young person and their family.

At Help for Psychology we have extensive experience in working with both children and adults with Autism and can offer the following support at our Norwich Clinic:


Many adults with Autism continue to experience anxiety and self-esteem issues.  Some may also have been negatively impacted by their experiences when younger, particularly if their difficulties were not recognised or well understood when they were younger.

At Help for Psychology, we can offer one-to-one sessions for adults with one of our Clinical Psychologists.  As with our sessions for children, we offer an integrative approach which may include CBT, DBT, EMDR and Schema approaches.

Unfortunately we do not offer an emergency or out of hours service.

Unless your sessions are commissioned by your local CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) or covered by insurance, we have to charge for our services.  Please contact for further details.

If you are in crisis you would need to approach your local Mental Health Crisis team or attend the Accident and Emergency Department of your local hospital.
