Despite our charity name indicating a preference for autism of the Asperger’s variant, we do in fact counsel all variants of autism, from lower-functioning to higher-functioning types.
All work that our charity undertakes is donation-led. We are an international (thanks to Skype/FT counselling) award-winning charity that has been operating since October 2008. Demand is high.

We do not receive funding from the Government currently. Funding from client donations is essential to the provision of this service therefore. A donation that is in the region of £40-£65 per hour (lower to higher incomes & wef 1 April 2019) for our counselling service is kindly requested. Action for Asperger’s is charitable by choice; this does not equate to less.
Please note that out of respect for client confidentiality, no client testimonials can be found on this website. We do, however, perform client satisfaction audits in September/October each year.
Note that we are happy to receive enquiries from undiagnosed autistic individuals as well as enquiries from formally diagnosed autistic individuals.
