About the Aphantasia Academy

We specialise in training coaching, counselling, mental health and behaviour change professionals to better support neurodivergent individuals who have multi-sensory aphantasia, anauralia, SDAM (severely deficient autobiographical memory), and alexithymia.

In our diverse world, understanding these conditions is key to effectively supporting behaviour change to improve patient engagement and reduce healthcare costs?

Aphantasia - affecting approximately 3.9-5% of the population, is the inability to create mental images, impacting techniques reliant on visualisation. Visualisation is linked to future thinking, motivation, and performance. Severely Deficient Autobiographical Memory (SDAM) - though less commonly studied it affects up to 2% of the population. This involves challenges in recalling personal life events, affecting reflective practices. Anauralia - is characterised by the absence of an inner monologue, influencing auditory reflection and internal dialogue methods. Whilst no definite figure has been agreed, one study suggested that only 26% of the participants were able to identify having inner speech. Alexithymia - present in around 10% of individuals. It is a difficulty in identifying and expressing emotions, crucial for emotional intelligence, motivation and interpersonal interactions.

Currently we are the only provider specialising in training relating to these conditions.

I really loved this masterclass, as a coach, therapist and neuroscience geek I found this not only super interesting but incredibly valuable and important to my work too. Learning more about how we functions as humans is imperative to my work, this needs to be talked about more and the industry will benefit from learning about this incredible and fascinating condition.


Sassy is very passionate and knowledgable about this topic and this is a brilliant introduction into aphantasia. Highly recommend.


The masterclass with Sassy was eye-opening and made me realise how many coaches and business owners rely on visualisation to help their clients in one firm or another - and how many could be literally left in the dark as to why the process didn’t work as expected or give the results they were looking for. Understanding how some of your customers may struggle to see images in their head will help us all create a tailored, inclusive experience to ensure the people we help get the full value of our offerings. Thank you Sassy!


Sassy has a wealth of knowledge and passion around this subject and as a results imparts it incredibly well. I so enjoyed the course and the information that I truly had no idea about the lightbulb moments that she helped create were fabulous. I will be using this information and knowledge in so many ways. Thank you Sassy for highlighting and lighting the touch paper around this for me. You gave so much thank you.


This course opened my eyes to conditions clients may have but they may not be aware of. Sassy delivers her knowledge the lens of the clients I may encounter with foresight into their world. A blend of experience, research and history really adds depth to one’s learning, and sassy’s passion to educate ensures the learning is interactive and insightful. A fabulous course that I would recommend to any practitioner who wishes to work with clients using a much deeper holistic approach.
