Aspergers provides consulting services for individuals and companies.

These services include consulting services for adults and teenagers with Aspergers/HFA, parents, partners, other family members, friends, health and educational professionals, colleagues and employers. Services are related to issues at home, school, university, training and educational programmes, and/or workplaces.

I specialise in the complexity of female presentation of autism and the complexities of camouflaging (masking and compensation) for both men and women.

Consulting services for companies include issues related to Aspergers and Human Resource policies and practices, management, dispute resolution, unconscious bias, neuro-diversity and organisational development and organisational cultures.

My office is in Dunedin, Aotearoa New Zealand. Pre Covid restrictions, I travelled regularly to other parts of New Zealand and Australia for client/company consultations and during Covid restrictions I provided online consultancy services for clients (both organisations and individuals in New Zealand and internationally).
