About me and my therapy practice

I am the founder, CEO and counsellor of Action for Asperger's. A UK-wide charity that provides autism-specialist counselling for 'lives that have become adversely affected by Asperger's syndrome/autism'.  Action for Asperger's counsels not only the individual with Asperger's/autism, but also counsels those who are in a close relationship with them. Our organisation counsels all ages aged 3-100. I hold a PGC in Asperger's syndrome and a Master's degree in autism to bolster my strong experiential history. I have counselled over 2,000+ autistic individuals over a ten-year period and regularly give talks on 'what works when counselling lives affected by autism'. In 2016 I received an MBE in the Queen's birthday honours for my work in this field. This was the first time a Queen's honour made for Asperger's syndrome specifically. While the majority of my work is undertaken at our charity HQ in Corby, Northamptonshire, I also undertake some private work from my home in Oundle, Northamptonshire.
