Maxine Aston lives and works in Coventry, England - a city close to Shakespeare's birthplace.

Having achieved a first class honours Bachelors Degree in Psychology at Coventry University in 1999, Maxine went on in 2007 to achieve a Masters in Health Psychology.

Maxine has had the personal experience of once being married to a man, who was later diagnosed with Asperger syndrome. Unfortunately the diagnosis came after their divorce.

At this time Maxine was working as a Relate counsellor and studying psychology. The combination of personal and professional experience made her acutely aware of the lack of awareness and understanding offered to individuals and couples. In the 1990s it was believed by some professionals that individuals with Asperger syndrome did not form relationships or marry. Maxine challenged this myth by writing the first book addressing the difficulties faced by couples in an AS/NT relationship. Maxine has specialised exclusively in this area since 1998.

Author of four books, 'The Other Half of Asperger Syndrome', 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.

Maxine is a Relate trained couple counsellor and a qualified trainer and teacher in adult education. Maxine runs her own Practice close to Coventry City Centre. Maxine is able to offer consultations to individuals, couples and families whose lives are affected by Asperger syndrome.

Maxine runs workshops for both individuals and professionals. Awareness of Asperger syndrome has increased over the past decade, however, how best to provide appropriate support is still sadly lacking. Understanding Asperger syndrome and how it will impact on the individual and relationships are crucial if a positive outcome is to be achieved. The aim of these one day workshops for professionals is to increase understanding and to offer strategies for working in this area.

Maxine also offers a two day workshop for individuals who are in a relationship with a partner who has Asperger syndrome. The aim of these workshops is to offer support, increase understanding, reinforce boundaries, look at self-help and increase self-esteem.
See the workshops page.

Maxine has spoken at both National and International conferences since 1999, to promote awareness and understanding.

'Difference can only feel threatening
if it exists within the absence of acceptance and understanding'
