Dr. Liliya Wheatcraft –
a uniquely qualified Psychaitrist of Autism
My names is Liliya.
I’m a medical doctor in my early 40s.
I’m a fully qualified member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
I am also Autistic.
I have ADHD too.
This makes me different from most other psychiatrists.
I find myself in a uniquely privileged position.
Through a profound understanding of my own difficulties and my NeuroAtypical nature, I can recognise, appreciate and help others who live with Autism. I’m perfectly placed to understand the nature and impact of Autism on their lives.
I have the relevant medical and academic background to give support to those who need it most.
I bring to my work the qualities of
- Clear thinking
From then to now...
Growing up in a small town, I often found myself sitting on the sidelines, wondering why I wasn’t like everybody else.
Struggling to feel like I genuinely belonged, I decided it was time to break free from my limitations and step into the person I was always meant to be — confident and free to live the life I’d always imagined.
Now I’ve turned my transformation into an easy-to-follow system that anyone can use to unlock their potential and start enjoying life like never before.
How I help Autistic people
I help Autisitic people to grasp a more profound understanding of their own autistic thinking and behaviour. With my support, they learn to answer personal questions about autism, such as:
- How does autism affect me?
- Which of my actions are best explained by autism?
- How do non-autistic people think about me?
- Why do non-autisitic people thnk about autism in the way they do?
- How can I lean on my strengths and mnimise the impact of my vulnerabilties?
- How can I feel better about myself?
I also help families and employers of autistic people. I use my empathetic nature and my own experiences of Autism to help them to to understand, appreciate and celebrate the autistic personality.
