Counselling Services – Asperger’s Support
A person with Asperger’s syndrome is susceptible to anxiety and depression for a number of reasons. Causes may include social anxiety, self-criticism for not understanding social cues, confusion, isolation, insecurity and unmet expectations can all cause intense distress for the person with Asperger’s.
If the distress is not dealt with these factors may combine to make the person with Asperger’s feel anxious and/or depressed. Seeking professional counselling for management of these uncomfortable feelings for the person with Asperger’s and or family members can assist greatly.
