My experience covers
working with people who have a diagnosis of Autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) or
have a learning difficulty and the anxiety of living with this. Often
behaviours and routines can accompany ASD as well as some OCD behaviours
because doing these can help reduce your anxiety.
But this means the anxiety
remains and this can be difficult to overcome.
But understanding the thoughts and feelings behind these is the first
step in being able to change or challenge those existing ways of doing things
and develop new ways that can help you to reduce your anxiety in a more helpful

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking
therapy that can help you manage your problems by developing new ways of
thinking and behaviours that enhance your life. It can help you identify what
needs to change.
It's most commonly used to treat anxiety
