I'm Alison Geddes, founder of Aspect Autism Consultancy. Aspect came to be following a 30 year career within mental health services. I have worked as far flung as Australia and within various settings including Acute Psychiatry, Eating disorders, Psychotherapy services and Child and Adolescent mental health (CAMHS). I became acutely aware of the additional support and understanding autistic individuals required.
At Aspect I believe that the world is not particularly 'autism friendly' but in recent years there has been many changes in raising awareness within schools, in public places, in the work place and indeed amongst health professionals. At Aspect we believe that one person at a time, we can continue to raise awareness of all autistic presentations and break down stigma of what we think we know already.
I have particular interest in Autism in women and girls and have expertise in eating disorder presentations among autistic individuals. My experience across the age range is unique.
