About you

  • Do you want to get out of Autistic Burnout?
  • Are you feeling stuck?
  • Do you wish someone would understand you?
  • Would you love to meet a small group of Autistic people who can relate to you?
  • Do you find self directed courses difficult to engage with?

Autistic Burnout can be a lonely and depressing experience. Recovery is possible but it can be hard to know what to next when you are struggling to think clearly. If you feel like this then please know you are not alone.

Recovering from Autistic Burnout

Autistic Burnout is a normal reaction to being expected to mask and meet neurotypical standards. That doesn't stop it being a miserable and, at times, disabiling experience

My online courses and memberships contain lots of valuable information and tools. However, not everyone is able to engage in self-directed learning. Sometimes a more interactive and supportive approach is required.

How would you feel about having a one to one session with me where we take a thorough look at your specific situation, needs and values?

Would you like to have help to decide on what to focus on and when? To meet with me and a small, supportive group of similar people to keep you on track with your progress and provide you with support and understanding?

If you are nodding your head then I have something for you. My small group coaching programme, will include a 1:1 session with me, full access to the Autistic Burnout Recovery Programme and 9 sessions of small group coaching. It will help you identify what you need and support you to progress in your recovery journey.

About Me

My name is Dr Alice Nicholls, you can call me Alice. I've had three major periods of Autistic Burnout in my life, each lasting several years. I've also had some mini ones in-between. I'm a professional, a mother, a daughter, a partner and I have a busy household to run. I know, first hand that even when you know what you need there is a massive gap between understanding it and actually being able to do something about it.

I have a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and I'm registered with the Health Care Professions Council in the UK. I worked in the NHS until 2017 when I left and became self-employed. Since then I have gradually refined my focus to Autistic Burnout, consuming all of the research and applying my existing knowledge of Clinical Psychology and the experiences of my clients and myself to the research evidence.

I dislike the word expert, I don't think I know everything there is to know about Autistic Burnout. I don't think anyone does, but I am committed to staying up to date with the latest research in this area and listening to wealth of experiences within the Autistic Community.
