Leith McMurray is a qualified Social Worker from the University of Canterbury. She comes from a long line of Aspies on both sides of her family.
Leith has been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome and spent the larger part of her life trying to cope in a Neurotypical world before finding her "true" nature. (The great news about Asperger Syndrome was not widely known until Uta Frith published an English translation of Hans Asperger's work in 1991). It took a while after that for people to realise that Aspie children grow up into Aspie adults, but the world has changed dramatically since then.
Leith worked together with Jan as co-counsellors introducing people to the likelihood (or not) of their being aspie, and providing information about what steps next to take in the great journey of obtaining a diagnosis, and how to adjust to their new future lives. We also worked separately on occasion where a certain harmony with a client had developed with one or the other of us.
We welcome new clients, with or without family or whanau. Please ring (03) 337 6337 or (03) 337 2008 for an appointment.
