Our partners at Autism Central have launched a new webinar series called ‘Finding the Balance’ to support parents and carers of autistic people to learn more about looking after their own wellbeing.

In the six webinar episodes, Dr Naomi Fisher and Eliza Fricker discuss key themes for parent carers including the impact of self-critical thinking, and what we can do to be more compassionate with ourselves. Each episode features a conversation on a different wellbeing topic such as looking after yourself and dealing with other people – with entertaining and relatable illustrations and practical exercises to try.

Sign up to see all the episodes in full, and get a sneak peek of three of the episodes:

  • Looking after yourself
  • Am I doing this all wrong?
  • Dealing with other People.

Other episodes in the series include:

  • Not what I signed up for
  • Why do I feel so drained?
  • I can’t relax

Autism Central and Contact

Together with Ambitious about Autism, we run the London and Midlands hubs which offers group and one-to-one sessions to help parents and carers find the information and services available in your area. We may also run events such as workshops, drop-in sessions, coffee mornings or virtual meet-ups.
