Thrive in your difference by working with your strengths as well as your challenges – because neurodiversity comes with both.

We work with neurodiverse people of all ages - from autism and ADHD, to dyslexia and other neurodevelopmental differences.

Our services are holistic and cover medical, psychological, and skills-based aspects of living with neurodiversity – from GP consults through to in-depth assessment, group programs, and individual therapy and coaching sessions with our psychologists. Our services are delivered in flexible and diverse formats, because one size never fits all (and nor should it!).

Our approach to neurodiversity

Neurodiversity comes with unique strengths and challenges. We aim to meet each person with curiosity and openness, empowering clients to understand themselves deeply, learn new ways of approaching challenges, and thrive.

While coaching and practical skills are important, neurodiversity can often affect a person’s self-confidence, self-concept, and self-worth. Therefore, we will also explore the deeper emotional aspects of dealing with symptoms if that is a priority for you.

We’re a flexible and inclusive bunch. Here, you’ll find a warm and supportive environment where everyone has value. And together, we can find fresh and meaningful ways to live well with neurodiversity – even when life is tough.


Therapy and treatment

Our psychologists can work with you to address the challenges of living with ADHD – whether you are a child, adolescent, or adult. Central to our approach is redefining the relationship that people with ADHD have with themselves – so that they can make sense of their differences in new ways. We work collaboratively to cultivate an honest and empowering perspective of symptoms, helping to develop resilience, self-awareness, and incorporating practical strategies to confidently manage the challenges as well.

Children and parents

We provide both family therapy and parenting sessions to support children with ADHD. Family therapy involves understanding and addressing family dynamics, patterns of communication, and how the family system may contribute to or exacerbate ADHD symptoms. Parenting sessions involve learning techniques and strategies to support a child with their behaviour, emotions, and attention (while also making sure to draw on their strengths more often, too!).  


We provide in-depth assessment for ADHD in children and adults. We use high-quality evidence-based assessment tools to provide detailed and rigorous outcomes, including a thorough report outlining the assessment findings, diagnosis, and recommendations.

Adult ADHD online group program

Our 10-week group program designed to increase your understanding of what it means to have ADHD as an adult, and how to overcome many of the common difficulties. Meet other adults with ADHD, learn skills, dive deep into understanding symptoms, and find new ways of living well with ADHD. Click through for more info…


Therapy and skills

We offer individual therapy for autistic people, as well as family therapy and parenting supports for autistic children. Therapy is strengths-based with a focus on practical skills as well as improving a sense of belonging, fulfilment and connectedness. Parenting support includes techniques and strategies to support a child with their behaviour, social skills, emotions, and communication (while also making sure to draw on their strengths more often, too). We do all of this while keeping a firm focus on the unique factors that make up you – because no two people are alike. 

Language choices around autism

Words and language matter. At Sydney City Psychology, we use the term autistic to refer to a person who has a diagnosis of autism. We do this as our starting point, because it is the most widely accepted term to use in strengths-based and neuro-affirming contexts. However, some people may prefer to describe themselves as ‘being on the autism spectrum’, or ‘having autism’. Your preferences matter, and we are open to being guided by the language that you request – please do let us know.


Our in-depth assessment of autism in children and adults uses high-quality, neuro-affirming and evidence-based assessment tools to provide detailed and rigorous outcomes. This includes a thorough report outlining the assessment findings, diagnosis, and recommendations. Learn more about our autism assessments in childhood and adulthood:

Other forms of Neurodiversity

Neurodiversity is a broad spectrum that reaches beyond ADHD and autism, showcasing the diverse landscape of human cognition and perception. Some other forms of neurodiversity, are:

  • Synesthesia: a phenomenon where one sense triggers an experience in another sense. For example, someone with synesthesia might perceive numbers as having distinct colours, or associate sounds with specific tastes.
  • Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD): People with SPD may have heightened or reduced sensitivity to various sensory stimuli like touch, sound, taste, or smell.

Our clinicians work with all forms of neurodiversity and will tailor therapy to your unique needs as much as possible. Our goal is to provide practical and workable solutions for you – the individual. By doing so, we hope to empower clients to face challenges in the future with flexibility, creativity, and resilience.
