Yes, you can be a therapist and have autism!

Anne wasn’t diagnosed until age 32, after years of struggling to fit in despite her differences. In primary school in her native Réunion, she found herself isolated from the other children, who she found too frivolous.
At age 20, she forced herself to go against the grain and enrol in a communications programme in mainland France, after which she held a series of jobs, including stints as a trainer, a veterinary technician, and in theatre. Her stress, anger, and social and emotional vulnerability never left.
She later moved back to Réunion and opened a flower shop, but remained unable to strike up spontaneous conversations or manage customers’ expectations, and the business failed. Now, after completing a course on Ericksonian therapy, Anne needs our “Boost” to start her practice as a professional therapist; the protocols involved in therapy and the fact that clients come by appointment make this a better fit for her personality.
We are awarding her 5000 euros to fund her project.

 

A “Boost” to support integration for people with autism

We want to help people with high-functioning autism, who lack social awareness, by providing access to financial support or the skills they need. Musicians, stylists, authors, therapists... Exceptional talents that just need a little boost to succeed professionally.
A “Boost” for a new beginning!
