Hi, I’m Christine.

I am a late-discovered and neuro-affirming Autistic Psychotherapist and Coach. I am passionate about supporting individuals and families to learn more about what it is to be Autistic, and with this support, empower them and those around them to live a more comfortable and fulfilling life.

Contact me today if:

  • you think you might be Autistic and you are looking for support on your self-identification journey
  • you have received a diagnosis and are looking for support in processing your emotions around this discovery
  • you are a family member wishing to support an Autistic loved one in a neuro-affirming way
  • your family member is Autistic and you would benefit from some 1:1 support for yourself, as you support them.

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

How many times have you heard the words “cheer up love”, or “are you ok” as a result of your resting face?! 

When I catch myself like this I know I’m caught in thought again .. a place I know I don’t need to be so much but the default for so many of us. 

This gentle phrase always reminds me to return to love, to let go of fear. 

For me simplicity is always best and these few words are often all it takes to pop that thought bubble and return to me 💕
SICK .. DEMAND FREE

Chloé is diligently keeping me company as she senses I’m not well 💕… but she doesn’t know my secret delight in being sick. 

I woke up this morning to a positive Covid test and the first thing I felt was relief. 

I may be achy, sneezy, exhausted with a throat on fire … but I get to sit, read, watch TV, not talk, rest and, as an Autistic person,  the discomfort of being temporarily unwell is well worth the reward of no demands and an invitation to rest. 

I value my health so much and work hard to maintain a lifestyle that keeps my body and mind well .. I feel very fortunate to not struggle with my physical health .. but today, this rest, is a welcome reprieve. 

Do you ever feel relief when you are really sick?
POV: You’re a late-identified Autist and realise how fearless and strong you are now you FINALLY find the self-awareness you have been searching for your whole life

If only I had known that many women who feel overwhelmed, overstimulated and crave calm are unidentified neurodivergent, I would have seen myself so much sooner. 
The immense power of knowledge is hard to express. The whys, wonderings and confusion has finally stopped and been replaced with advocacy, adaptations and deep compassion.
Thank you for all your support. 

I can't believe that I am posting this but as of today, I am fully booked with 1:1 sessions for 2024. 

If you have any queries on Wild Women please message me on christine@christinedoyle.ie

For now I am focused on my creative work and finding ways to offer support on a wider level. Any suggestions gratefully received!
