My name is Maxine Aston and I live and work in Coventry, England - a city close to Shakespeare's birthplace.
I achieved a first class honours Psychology Bachelors degree at Coventry University in 1999 and in 2007 achieved my Masters in Health Psychology.
Author of four books, 'The Other Half of Asperger Syndrome', 2nd Edition 2014 published by Jessica Kingsley (first published in 2001 by the National Autistic Society), 'Aspergers in Love: Couple Relationships and Family Affairs', published in 2003 by Jessica Kingsley, 'The Asperger Couple's Workbook - Practical Advice and Activities for Couples and Counsellors', published in 2009 by Jessica Kingsley and 'What men with Asperger syndrome want to know about Dating, Women and Relationships' published in 2012 by Jessica Kingsley
My training as a couple counsellor began with relate in 1994.
I have specialised in individuals, couples and families since 1998.
Due to family commitments I no longer offer a counselling service.
Additionally I would also like to recommend both Derby and Nottingham Relate who have made significant efforts to train their counsellors to work in this area.
