Do you feel like you have to hide who you truly are for fear of rejection?

For late-realised, high-masking Autistics shame can be a massive motivator of compensatory behaviour.

We compensate for our autistic traits out of fear of being rejected and excluded.

Unfortunately this compensatory behaviour is exhausting and both contributes to, and maintains Autistic Burnout.

This short course is designed to help you:

  • Understand the relationship between shame and masking
  • Get clear on how you have internalised ableism
  • Work out the difference between staying safe and over compensating.
  • Take a balanced, anti-ableist perspective on your Autistic characteristics
