Kate French

“Who is Kate and what is she all about?”

Kate works on being a leader in positive psychology practices for the neurodivergent community and those working in this field. Kate has worked as a Clinical Psychologist with individuals and families since 2004. She heads up a private psychology practice in Mildura, Australia, called Side by Side Psychology.

Kate focuses as a parent coach is to provide positive psychology interventions that can assist individuals and professionals working within the autism space, being mindful that often the medical model is the most commonly understood perspective, but not necessarily always the most helpful for understanding strengths and possibilities.

Kate seeks to share her knowledge and be accessible for all families and professionals who want to understand how to be optimistic in providing support for children, teens and adults. Whether this is for parents who have children and teens dealing with anxiety, understanding their differences and challenges, and especially for their parents and family members around them. Kate provides individual and group online coaching.


Presenting, Mentoring and Online Programs

Kate is here to share the knowledge on how understanding our mindset, our strengths and how to build up supports can provide much to autistic individuals. That interventions can be more than symptom reduction, more than simply skills to fit into the community and more than reducing symptoms of mental ill health. That optimism as a mindset is as important to teach as a skill and to embody.

Kate provides presentations, workshops, coaching and mentoring for parents, health professionals interested in a strengths based autism education and intervention.

She also delivers online training for parents, carers and professionals on how to apply psychology principals such as parent emotion coaching, mindfulness, and mindset work, embodied in a neurodivergent affirming perspective.
