Welcome to Action for Asperger’s registered charity 1148790


Please note that this website is currently in the throes of being updated. It does not reflect accurately our current situation; we now have 21 counsellors, the majority of whom are not listed on this site. It is only a matter of time before we launch our new website with new information.  If you need help email us on [email protected]; we are working extremely hard during this pandemic, which is the reason why we are “slightly behind” with administration such as the new website….bear with…we will get there!  Kind regards, Elaine Nicholson, CEO

Thank you for ‘clicking’ on our website. I hope that you will find much of what you read helpful, and, if so, please do not hesitate to get in touch. If you scroll further down this home page, you will find our information video. The video runs for approximately 37 minutes and has been specifically designed to be of assistance to the non-reader.

Despite our charity name indicating a preference for autism of the Asperger’s variant, we do in fact counsel all autistic individuals including those with higher needs.

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 and the outcomes are published in our AGM Report & Accounts that we have to produce by law and which are accessible on the Charities Commission website:


Note that we are happy to receive enquiries from undiagnosed autistic individuals as well as enquiries from formally diagnosed autistic individuals.
