Due to my lived experience as a partner of an adult receiving a late (adult) diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome, I went on to start a support group for partners of adults with Asperger's Syndrome in 2003 (ASPIA Inc). In 2014 I was included on the Australia Day Honours List for a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for "service to families affected by Asperger's Syndrome".
My passion to provide information, interpretation and support to partners led me to secure a qualification as a Counsellor in 2011, and presently I am continuing to build my professional knowledge and skills with a Bachelor in Counselling.
I am available for phone or skype counselling, or face to face appointments at my home in the South West of Sydney. I am prepared to travel to a client's location as well.
Additionally, I am a Christian with a keen understanding of the difficulties of marital breakdown within a fundamentalist Christian church context, and the spiritual wounds that can result. I am not a "Christian counsellor" as such, but I am a counsellor who is a devoted Christian with deep understanding and familiarity of Christian terminology and meaning.
