In this section, we outline how talk therapy can help autistic people, what to expect from a talk therapy session and how therapists can make their practice a more autism-friendly environment. Talk therapy
is an umbrella term for a number of approaches such as counselling, psychotherapy, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and mindfulness. It can be delivered one-on-one or in group settings. What type of therapy you choose and how it is delivered depends on your needs and comfort level.
