Hi, I’m Christine.

I am a Counselling Psychotherapist (MIACP). I see adults for 1-2-1 sessions in Counselling and Psychotherapy in person and also online.

I am also a Wellbeing Life Coach and my ‘My Kind of Life’ programme is designed for those who want more time, renewed energy, better relationships, and a more balanced and fulfilling life.

Do I want Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy helps clients to relieve emotional distress, seek solutions to problems in their lives, and to unpack cognitive distortions and unhelpful behaviours that are preventing them from finding contentment, working productively, and enjoying personal relationships.

I help clients with feelings of anxiety, loneliness, depression, anger, trauma, and stress. I also help clients who are navigating life changes, and relationship problems or who are working to overcome past issues that are blocking present joy.


Or is it Wellbeing Life Coaching I am looking for? 

Wellbeing Life Coaching supports clients to not only set goals but to also find the motivation and tools to get to their physical and emotional health objectives in a positive, forward-focused, fun, and supportive environment.

I can help you build a life more aligned with your core values and beliefs, highlighting your strengths and uniqueness to create a life that is full of joy, purposeful, forward-focused, and, most importantly, yours.

My work is focused on guiding you as you return to who you truly are. 


What my clients Say

Don't just take my word for it! Here is what some of my previous clients have to say about their work with me:

Enrolling in Christine’s My Kind of Life programme was honestly the best thing I have ever done for my mental health – my head is the clearest it has been in years. I had tried talk therapy before and while I found it good, I was fed up of talking and felt like I wanted […]

- Georgina

My experience working with Christine has been extremely positive. I first came to Christine with a lack of purpose in my life. I felt stuck where I was and I knew that I wasn’t living the life that I wanted to. Christine provided great support while I was making changes to my mindset and was always […]

- Anna

I booked an appointment with Christine on the advice of my doctor. I wanted a stronger antidepressant but got a talking to from my doctor about taking the time to go to a new therapist. I had been to therapy before but it was like putting a plaster on a wound that needed stitches. I still […]

- Client Nov 2022

Thank you for the time we spent working together and how much it has helped me. It is something I will always be grateful for. The tools you gave me and the things you taught me are invaluable and I’ve applied them in so many situations since and have had a very different outcome to […]

- Jen

As a person who had previously attended therapy and never wanted to return, when I started with Christine my whole view on therapy changed. Christine’s positivity and incredible insight really showed me how to challenge my negative thoughts and build a self-care plan that suits me. I am so lucky to have worked with Christine […]

- Tara

As a mid 50’s male I knew that, despite outwards appearances of being successful in life, I had taken the eye off the ball on my own health and wellbeing. Christine’s My Kind of Life four sessions spread over eight weeks has been truly life changing for me. Christine is very good at getting under […]

- Peter M

I can honestly say Christine has helped me both on a personal level and professionally.  She taught me about setting boundaries professionally which gave me great relief when I put those into practice. Time is always on my side now and I feel fabulous and so grateful for taking the time out to go on […]

- MB

Working with Christine over the past year has been truly life changing for me. I first came to Christine at a very vulnerable time in my life when I felt lost and without purpose. From our very first session Christine cultivated a safe, non-judgemental, and honest environment where I felt truly heard. Her realistic approach […]

- Roisin

Working with Christine over our four 1-2-1 sessions has truly been transformative to my well-being and rediscovering my authentic self.  After each session, Christine sends you a personalised summary of your session with a plan and goals for you to work on for the next session. Working with Christine empowered me to recognise my self-doubts, […]

- Danielle

Working with Christine has taught me so much. This work has helped me live intentionally, to forgive and accept myself for who I am. She has helped me live a life with gentleness, kindness and true to my core values

- Jess

Christine’s approach was soft & gentle yet extremely supportive & encouraging. She helped me realise that my lack of clarity on what I truly wanted was causing me to become distracted by what was going on around me & by what others were doing. Before working with Christine I was placing responsibility in/on others within […]

- Kate

My sessions with Christine have allowed me to focus on what is most important, and my time and life management have become so much better….. These sessions have massively lightened the load. I was one that really would not have believed in these kinds of methods. I would’ve dismissed it as a kind of whimsical […]

- Dylan

1-2-1 Work with Christine

I offer both counselling psychotherapy and wellbeing life coaching to adults. My therapeutic style is compassion focused, goal oriented and positively challenging.

“Love is nothing without action
Trust is nothing without proof
Sorry is nothing without change” - Dalai Lama

Compassion focused therapy helps to identify the struggle without judgement and encourages accountability of action to compassionately respond to the situation. 

Meeting ourselves without judgement in the therapy room allows us to listen deeply and whole heartedly within to what we know to be true - our love is lacking if there is no action, our truth is incomplete without proof of action and our sorry is meaningless without obvious change. 

Therapy assists awareness …  what changes with that awareness rests on accountability and a willingness to change.

I have always loved a fitness tracker, the nod of well done as I reached my step count or hours slept, the satisfaction I got from staying on top, from maintaining consistency and discipline when my fluctuating mood has encouraged me otherwise. 

Yep, my fitness tracker and I have always got on .. until that is, I started to fail on every level.  Last Christmas I got a particularly bad dose and couldn’t sleep, move or function at all. My body needed complete rest but rather than understand, I felt judged by my fitness tracker that kept telling me to “get up and move”, “your step count is low” .. and on .. and on .. and into the drawer it went and has remained since. 

In the last few months I missed my tracker but dammit it had crossed a line of zero compassion so I went in search of another .. and found this beauty. 

Let’s be honest, if it’s not pretty I’m probably not interested .. this is pretty and so much more! 

Habits are achievable when they are obvious, attractive, easy and satisfying according to Atomic Habits @jamesclear. My @whoop ticks all these boxes. 

This is pretty but also super scientific - it analyses my sleep, recovery, cycle, stress and strain. It records my heartbeat and, with this, it magically knows when my body needs rest, or is ready to be put under strain, it encourages recovery, and knows I am run down before I do. When my numbers were on the floor recently, a positive COVID test the following day was no surprise. 

I am a fan of discipline and motivation, but only when served with compassion and encouragement. 

Do you whoop?

As a therapist I meet a lot of clients in trauma, who, for so long, have pushed past, pushed down or minimised their trauma. 

As a therapist I want to tell you
- no trauma is little t or big T trauma
- no one gets to rate your trauma
- rating trauma minimises and invalidates the experience of trauma
- If you expereinced a situation that deeply affected you
- and kept affecting you for a long period of time
- especially if you felt alone in the pain 
- or where you were in a situation where you were not seen as who you are and misjudged or treated unfairly
- the chances are that trauma was there

Naming your experience and allowing your pain to be heard and soothed matters. Processing is finding a safe space to release the energy of the trauma that you have held on to for too long.

This is our situation for the past month.  A camp bed at the end of our bed. An extra little person in our room. 

Simply put there are times when our children just need us that bit more. 

No different from how, at times, we all just need that bit more. 

It is only when we pathologise their needs; fear the uncertainty of change, become impatient with wanting things to go back to ‘normal’, wish they didn’t get knocked so easily, resent them taking our space, personalise what their behaviour says about our own parenting that we come away from attending to what they need. 

When we can give freely to our children, when we ourselves are given what we need freely by others, when we give ourselves what we need freely, without judgement, expectation or impatience, we breathe more easily, we rebalance, and in that gentle space we find our strength and self again. 

This is not how it will always be - but for now, we are here.

I’ll always be a pen and paper planner .. and colours, highlighters, drawings, and more paper .. basically my approach to work was formed in junior infants when I found a formula I liked and I’m sticking with it 📝
A few years ago I never thought I would be sharing my proudly sober podcast. 

First I had to decide to live alcohol free - and that decision started creeping in years, in fact, decades ago. But finally I decided. 

Then the challenge was to accept sobriety as the way I want to be. I had no idea what that would look like but I was tired of my relationship with alcohol. 

Finally, when I felt ready, it was to open up and chat to others about my love of sober living. 

Sobriety is a funny one … undeniably a healthy way to live, and yet still often associated with shame and negativity.

I’m hoping this might help dispel some of those nonsense beliefs and maybe encourage someone else to give it a go.

"I suppose I was always waiting for something remarkable – for that rock bottom, that feeling that alcohol was controlling me, the shame of mistake upon mistake, or, worse, hurting my family and those around me. If something remarkable like that had happened, I would have known to stop. But it didn’t, so I continued drinking, unremarkably."
