We provide expert mental health support for autistic people.

Many of our clients are older teens or young adults and/or their parents. We work with everyone involved to help them understand and experience what genuinely autism-affirming support looks like in practice.

We listen carefully to make sure we understand all our clients’ needs and strengths, as well as the context in which they live and work, and we make every effort to tailor our support accordingly.

Our approach

Autistic individuals live in a world that’s designed for people who are not autistic. As a result, they face many challenges that are often compounded by a lack of understanding and support from those around them.

We therefore encourage all our clients, whatever their neurology, to consider situations from a standpoint that affirms autism and autistic people, and recognises a person’s strengths and capacity to thrive in the right setting.

We focus on helping clients deal with their challenges through improving communication and strengthening their key relationships, enhancing mental health and well-being in the process.

I help autistic teens grow into a healthy, sustainable, and fulfilled adulthood by teaching parents the guiding principles and skills they need to nurture their young person’s growth, so the whole family can worry less and have more confidence about the future.

As an autistic psychologist and parent to a young autistic adult, I’ve had plenty of opportunities to take what I’ve learned in my work and use it in our own family, as well as with my clients.

I have a passion for facilitating communication between autistic and non-autistic people, whether at home or in the workplace. I’m a chartered and HCPC registered counselling psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. I live in the northwest of England and work online across the UK and beyond.


2diverse is headed up by Sarah Pagdin, a chartered counselling psychologist with extensive professional and personal experience in the field of mental health and autism. Sarah is mum to 23-year-old Alexis, who works alongside her contributing ideas and insights from their own experience as a young autistic person.

Alexis co-presents at training sessions and writes content to share with parents in our membership community and beyond.

2diverse also has many connections within the autistic community and with other professionals working in this field which gives us access to a wide range of resources we can draw on in our work.
