 We offer psychotherapy & social skills training for individuals with Asperger's Syndrome (AS) and other forms of high-functioning autism. We use a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) based approach; a model which has been shown to be particularly effective for people on the spectrum. Typical components of the therapeutic work including teaching clients how to interpret various social cues and respond appropriately, making and keeping friends, overcoming social anxiety, dealing with frustration, dating and relationships, approaching job interviews and employment, and improving time management/organisational skills. The psychotherapy will also often focus on challenging a clients maladaptive thinking styles and unwarranted assumptions.
