Vivacity Independent Social Work

Independent Social Work, across the UK  | e:

I offer highly specialist parenting assessments for neurodivergent parents, where

create a bespoke assessment of a parent's interpersonal effectiveness, utilising

my skills as a psychotherapist and an internationally licensed Functional Fluency



I use visual supports such as Talking Mats, and standardised  assessment tools

e.g., Hospital and Anxiety Depression Scales (HADS) to support my assessment of

a parent's capabilities and difficulties.


I have a comprehensive knowledge and expertise in how neurodivergent parents

can creatively offer different, non-conventional parenting approaches, and when

these need to be questioned and challenged. Equally, I am fully conversant with

the different demands parents face when parenting an autistic child with

Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) or a PDA profile.
