Action for Asperger's (AfA) provides autism-specialist counselling for lives that have become adversely affected by the experience of Asperger syndrome and autism. Catering for all ages 3 years and upwards, we will see you if you have autism/Asperger's or if you are in a close relationship with someone who has autism/Asperger's. You do not need a formal diagnosis to consult us; we will see you if you strongly suspect autism/Asperger's is at the heart of your current difficulties.
Training, qualifications & experience
Counsellors have diplomas and masters' degrees. Some have additional qualifications in autism and Asperger syndrome and/or a strong experiential background of autism spectrum disorders.
Member organisations *
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
