Who is Helen Poulos?


Helen offers the unique combination of lived experience as she is neurodivergent herself, is a professionally qualified ACA Registered Counsellor, a NESA Accredited experienced teacher, and the Founder of ASK Counselling. She provides families with a sought-after perspective of life through a neurodivergent lens, as well as a person-centered, strengths-based, neurodiversity-affirming & holistic counselling service that you can trust to support you and & your family throughout every phase of your journey. 


We all need support at some point, and everyone deserves to ASK for it. Counselling allows you to discuss issues causing concern in a safe and supportive environment. Many people find that talking with a professional counsellor helps them to work out better ways to deal with issues in their life, parenting or relationships. Helen is an advocate for neurodiversity affirming practice, and as one of her areas of interests is neurodivergence, mental health and supporting parents to raise children respectful to their neurotype; Helen engages in continuous personal and professional development and research in this field. 


If you're wondering how Helen can help you, the only way to find out is to ASK!
