Do you need an autism assessment?
Do you need behaviour support?
We provide diagnosis for children from age 2 years upwards. The assessment process is a multi-disciplinary approach including the ADOS2 assessment and assessment by a registered psychologist. A full assessment report will be provided with follow up support recommendations.
We provide online support for parents of autistic children helping them with understanding their childs behaviour and giving them practical strategies to use at home to support their child.
WhySunflower Autism Consultancy
Our 15 years experience supporting Autistic children of all ages has shown that the earlier we diagnose and begin providing support , the more children can flourish and grow to their full potential. Families often unfortunately have a long wait for support services so we aim to bridge this gap and ensure early intervention for your child.
We use ADOS2, seen the world over as the “gold standard”
for autism diagnosis. We always work as part of a multidisciplinary team as per NICE guidelines.
For young children an ADOS2 diagnosis is fun – very similar to playing with toys they probably already know.
You and your child deserve expert professional autism support
What People Are Saying
“Julia was an absolute delight with my son who was 14 months old when we sought support. At the time he was showing red flags for autism and Julia was very sweet to my son, supportive to me and informative and professional to my husband and I. She gave us the tools to help Jude and we still use these methods with Jude. I highly recommend Julia as we will be using Julia again in the future.”
Susie Jones Garner, Autism Mum
“Highly recommend Sunflower Consultancy. Julia is so positive and helpful. It’s great to have a listening ear and someone who understands where you are coming from. She gives lots of ideas and suggestions to make life easier for all the family. Give her a call – the first hour is free.”
Bromley autism mum
“I learned so much from Julia when I worked with her. She is a true professional and shows the utmost in care and compassion for the people she works with. Each individual receives the best that she can give through her years of experience and her desire to continually improve her own autism awareness and skills. Julia remains the first person I would go to for advice on anything autism related as I’ve never met anyone else with such a wealth of knowledge.”
Gemma Carter-Green, teacher, autism professional.
I am a clinical psychologist in private practice and have had the privilege of working with Julia Gudinchet for over a year now with a range of different young people with autism and their families. Julia is dedicated, experienced and highly adept at providing families and young people with a wide range of support. Most importantly the families tell me that they enjoy working with her and she helps them solve so many of their autism- related problems with skill, ease and care. I have recommended her service to many of the clients I work with and I continue to recommend her as her support is invaluable. As a professional she also collaborates well with myself and other professionals to always ensure best results for the client. She is a highly-valued colleague!
Priya Osborn, Clinical Psychologist
I had a second session with Julia today. She’s been so supportive and understanding. She has given me bespoke ideas to support my daughter. Thanks to Julia I have had the confidence to make some big changes and small tweaks. I’m so happy with the positive impact her help and advice has made not just to my daughter but the whole family. I’m looking forward to our next session.

I am so glad Julia had landed in my life! We have not really known where to turn to since our son was diagnosed with ASD so finding this support has been invaluable for us. Having had our consultation with Julia plus 2 x zoom sessions (and more to follow) we are really seeing such positive progression with behaviours at home and more importantly how to manage situations ourselves with confidence. Having that person who tailors their advice so personally to our child has really given us the reassurance that we aren’t just doing a technique aimed at ‘one size fits all’. We have been able to use our first ever successful reward system to help with sleeping issues for him; this has been such a big step for us as we genuinely thought at one point we would never get a full nights sleep again! Thank you Julia!
