Autism-specialist counselling...

Action for Neurodiversity provides autism-specialist counselling to those who live with or alongside Asperger’s syndrome/autism and who are struggling and in need of help, with counsellors who have additional experience (either personally or professionally) and/or additional qualifications in autism.

Here for you every
step of the way

We are an award winning charity that started life in 2008, spearheading the concept of neurodiverse counselling therapy to those who need it and also to the therapeutic community – who have needed to know about it – ever since. 

We can help with individual counselling for those with autism/Asperger’s syndrome, relationship counselling where one or both partners has autism/Asperger’s syndrome, and/or counselling for close others – whether neurodiverse or neurotypical.
