ADVOCATING WITH DIAGNOSTICIANs
If I believe that you have Autism, and the assessor (NHS or Private) doesn’t think so, I will take on your case as your advocate. I promise: we will establish WHY the assessor didn’t think you met the diagnostic criteria, and I will do all in my power to achieve the correct diagnostic outcome for you.*
I know you really want me to prescribe, as many of you have made such requests. Here is the deal: I want to help thousands, hundreds of thousands people in the medium- to long-terms future. Unfortunately, it means I can’t help a few at present. I don’t want to charge the fees I’d need to, to cover my insurance.
First of all, let me say this:
after a lot of soul searching and months of discussions with mentors, lawyers, insurance companies, my family and my colleagues, I made a heart-wrenching decision:
I decided NOT to run a medical practice.
At least, not for now.
Instead, I could help you in a variety of different ways, more efficiently and, I daresay, effectively!
Check out these options below:
WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR YOU?
I am a GMC-registered medical doctor, and a full member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. But I have voluntarily given up my licence to practice in 2019.
Therefore, I am not providing any medical services, such as prescribing medication, performing FORMAL DIAGNOSTIC ASSESSMENTS for AUTISM, ADHD and related conditions, etc.
From the legal standpoint, I am unable to give you a legally binding diagnosis of either Autism or ADHD (or, indeed, any other diagnosis).
In other words, my diagnostic report will not stand in legal proceedings.
HOWEVER! I am happy to give you my informed opinion, which is helpful if you are undecided whether to pursue a diagnosis or not.
How do you benefit from such informed opinion?
1) It could literally save you thousands of pounds if you are unlikely to satisfy the strict interpretation of the diagnostic criteria and planning on paying for a private assessment.
2) What if you only need to know for yourself? You don’t need a formal diagnosis, but you want to know if you are on the spectrum. It is important for you. For your self-identification. You will be welcome here, and you could have that knowledge within a week.
3) It could mean you gain confidence necessary to push for formal diagnosis, within NHS or outside.
4) As I mentioned above, I would become a powerful ally advocating for your diagnosis – and I guarantee you will be diagnosed – or your money back.
5) Most importantly – and I would opt-in just for this! – going through this process with me will reduce your anxiety:
You will know the process. You will know that you, indeed, meet the diagnostic criteria. You will have collected all the necessary information. You will have it readily available for your diagnostician.
Now all you have left to do is go and be yourself with the assessors!
(Richard Maguire, author of “I Dream in Autism”, has been this doing for years for the Autism Oxford. Richard’s background is social work in mental health sector.)*
If I do that for you, I would also walk you through my findings, my thinking process; I will put it all on paper for you to take home and to process at your convenience.

OTHER SERVICES OF AUTISM-DOCTOR™
FOR AUTISTICs & THEIR FAMILIES
FOR NEUROTYPICAL INDIVIDUALS & ORGANISATIONS
DO YOU WANT TO LIVE THE LIFE WITH ALL THE POSITIVES OF AUTISM AND MINIMISE – OR EVEN ELIMINATE! – THE DISADVANTAGES?
That’s what they call “the normal” life!
Because I hope you understand – “the normal” doesn’t exist.
I repeat: the normal is an illusion! That’s what we tell ourselves looking from outside into another person’s or another family’s intimate life; “they live like normal people”!
No, they don’t!
So, shake the jealousy, the envy, the self-pity!
You can live the life like that! All you need is the skills to minimise the negatives & focus on the positives! And I will help you do that!
So, if you are a family with Autistic kids, or you yourself are on the Spectrum, get in touch NOW.
LET’S build the rest of your life to be the best of your life!
No one can do that for you.
But I can help you do that.
YOU ARE LINKED TO AN ASPIE. whether through work, friendship or love: HIS ENIGMATIC BEHAVIOUR DRIVES YOU MAD.
If so, THIS Service is for YOU.
I demystify the apparently incomprehensible behaviour of an autistic person.
I will explain to you WHY “your” Aspie doesn’t follow the certain social rules.
But I do not intend to give you a fish, hoping that you will return for my business again & again.
I have too little time and too much to do.
Instead, I will teach you an easy & simple to use framework to understand ANY Autism-driven behaviour in ANY SITUATION.
By applying my copyrighted A8W© model, you will not need any Service of any Autism Consultant anymore.
Although if you do find yourself in a tough spot at some point in the future, I will be happy to help again.
