Specialized and Experienced Therapists

Our team consists of specialized therapists and counsellors with extensive experience in working with individuals on the autism spectrum. They possess a deep understanding of the unique characteristics and challenges associated with these conditions, utilizing evidence-based techniques stemming from ABA to support individuals in their development.

Personalized Approach

We recognize that each person with autism is unique, with their own strengths, interests, and challenges. Our therapists take a personalized approach, tailoring therapy to meet specific needs and goals. We celebrate individuality and work towards enhancing skills, promoting independence, and fostering self-confidence.

Virtual Therapy for Convenience

Our virtual therapy option allows you to access therapy from the comfort and privacy of your own space. Through secure and confidential video sessions, you can receive support conveniently, eliminating concerns about travel or scheduling conflicts.

In-Person Therapy for Personalized Support

We offer in-person counselling services at our offices in Mississauga, Toronto, and Milton, and offer the convenience of home-visits across the GTA for a more immersive therapeutic experience. In-person sessions provide a more immersive therapy experience, fostering deeper connections and personalized support.

Developing Social and Communication Skills

Counselling provides a safe and structured environment for individuals with autism to develop and refine their social and communication skills. Skilled therapists use evidence-based interventions, such as social skills training and cognitive-behavioural techniques, to teach individuals strategies for understanding social cues, initiating and maintaining conversations, and building meaningful relationships. Counselling helps individuals with autism improve their social interactions, leading to increased confidence and a sense of belonging.

Emotional Regulation and Self-Understanding

Individuals with autism may experience challenges in understanding and expressing their emotions. Counselling helps them develop emotional regulation techniques and gain insight into their own emotional experiences. Therapists provide a supportive space for individuals to explore their feelings, identify triggers, and learn coping strategies to manage emotional challenges. By developing emotional self-awareness and regulation, individuals can navigate daily life more effectively and experience improved overall well-being.

Anxiety and Stress Management

Anxiety and stress are common challenges experienced by individuals with autism. Counselling offers effective tools and techniques for managing anxiety and stress related to social situations, sensory sensitivities, and daily life demands. Therapists work collaboratively with individuals to develop personalized strategies, such as relaxation techniques, cognitive restructuring, and mindfulness practices, to reduce anxiety and promote a sense of calm and well-being.

Support for Transitions and Life Skills Development

Navigating transitions and developing essential life skills can be challenging for individuals with autism. Counselling provides guidance and support during significant life transitions, such as transitioning from school to employment or independent living. Therapists assist individuals in developing practical life skills, including organization, time management, problem-solving, and self-advocacy. By addressing these areas, counselling helps individuals with autism build independence and achieve their goals.

Family Support and Education

Counselling extends support to families of individuals with autism. Therapists offer education about autism spectrum disorders, helping families better understand their loved one's needs and challenges. Family counselling sessions provide a platform for open communication, problem-solving, and strengthening family relationships. By involving families in the therapeutic process, counselling promotes a supportive and understanding environment that can positively impact the individual's well-being.

Personal Growth and Self-Esteem

Counselling promotes personal growth and self-esteem in individuals with autism. Therapists focus on recognizing and building upon individual strengths, fostering a sense of self-worth and confidence. Through setting and achieving personal goals, individuals develop a greater sense of empowerment and fulfillment, enabling them to overcome challenges and embrace their unique abilities.

I am grateful to have had Shani be a resource and support during a difficult transition in my life. I had enough self-awareness to google 'therapy' and Hatch-Me came up. It was the reviews that led me to finally submit a request to connect with someone, and I met Shani. I understand why he encourages his patients, once we are in a better headspace, to share our experiences here in order to potentially attract other souls searching for support. There is no pressure, but an understanding of how reviews drive awareness - I am here for it. If you are looking for some guidance, support, or a path to a better headspace, I encourage you to check HM out and meet with anyone on the team. Shani - you are an angel. You provided appropriate therapeutic support and relevant guidance to me during a dark time in my life. Your dedication is unparalleled. You are so accommodating, work around my timings, when I'm late, hungry or when I am in a situation where I need a call or text - you do your best to be there, and you are. It tells me that you actually care about me, my wellbeing, and you want to see me thrive. I hope I am fortunate enough to know you forever. I can assure you I will continue to visit HM whenever I need to kick my negative thoughts in the 'behind'and focus on budling the life I know I deserve because, I Love myself enough to try a little more each day. Thank you for that. From my experience, Shani is patient, but he will also confront your thought patterns when needed. He will support you with reassurance and also challenge you to move outside of a comfort zone. He will be clear and forthright about what one needs to do (unique to them) for overall health and wellbeing. If you care and love yourself enough to want to make some positive changes in your headspace, I encourage you to make an appointment. I can assure you, you won't regret it. Thank you again Hatch-Me and Thank you always Shani. Love, an exposed Gill.

The best therapists around. My entire family has felt heard and supported. Shani is the best therapist/guide we’ve ever had. Other therapist are full of themselves and the advice they give is right off of google. Shani is direct and the way he breaks concepts down is just brilliant. We found our therapist for life.
Shani's incredible! He's very patient and understanding.
Very helpful and is very patient when things aren't going as smooth as they should be. Been a long time coming and I'm glad I started.

When you’re in a big city, it’s hard to find services that are incredibly professional, custom tailored to your needs AND leave you feeling hopeful. Hatch-Me’s approach to their services are heart-centred and personable, with exceptionally prompt and clear communication. Cassidy is a gem. Walk in with some trepidation and walk out feeling so very loved and cared for. My first ever cuddle session healed layers of my heart, gave me space to speak my truth about past hurt, and was welcomed by a compassionate and empathetic soul who gave me the confidence to continue healing myself. I am deeply grateful, thank you.
