We Are NeuroTribe UK

We are a mental health and wellbeing organisation, on a mission to empower people from neurodiverse and culturally diverse communities to thrive. We provide support, information, guidance and therapeutic services to individuals, families and organisations, and are founded, managed and staffed by therapists with lived experience of the systemic oppressions we seek to challenge. With a vision of a truly inclusive world, our services help to challenge attitudes, raise awareness, and advocate for positive change, including:

  • Individual therapy which respects, values and celebrates differences

  • Working with organisations through diversity, empathy and inclusion training & consultancy

  • Creative CPD programmes, therapy and clinical supervision for helping professionals

  • Action research through our project "Britain Behind the Mask"- a collaboration with Open Words UK

Our Aims & Values

By working with individuals, families, therapists, professionals, businesses, charities and non-profit organisations, we aim to make an impact for people from marginalised communities and help them to find a sense of belonging in a society they can connect with, contribute to, and gain validation from.

Safe & Inclusive

We provide a safe, supportive, confidential and non-judgemental space, where you can identify with your conditions positively and without shame or fear. Not as a 'disability' or 'disorder', but as a different way of thinking with huge potential.

Connect & Respect

Believing in human connection and integration between the neurodivergent and neurotypical communities, we value respect. Not 'agreement', not 'tolerance', not 'assimilation', or 'acceptance' but real respect.

Educate & Inform

Having experienced first-hand how society lacks the knowledge, awareness and resources to enable diverse communities to thrive, we share resources and research to deepen understanding, inform therapeutic practice & advocate for a more inclusive world.

How We Make a Difference

Our Impact & Growth

When as parents and carers we were looking for a positive way for our children to identify as neurodiverse, Steve Silberman’s book NeuroTribes provided an uplifting, life-affirming framework and subsequently inspired the name and approach of our organisation.

When NeuroTribe UK began in 2018, we were on a mission to enable every child and young adult with a special educational need to thrive socially, emotionally, and academically. We have long known that, to achieve our goal, one of the best ways is to work with families and adults, as well as directly with children and young people in our community. This was the initial focus for our work as we began the journey to discover where NeuroTribe UK could have the most significant impact.

Throughout our journey, our experiences have lead us to realise the necessity of working with and for our cultural diverse communities as an equally important focus, bringing the viewpoints of intersectionality and socio-economic inclusion to the forefront of what we do.

Equally, we have found that working with schools, colleges, businesses and organisations that serve our community, through training, consultancy and CPD, has a greater impact when delivered alongside our clinical supervision and therapeutic services.
