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

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.

Autistic meltdowns are an involuntary response to sensory or emotional overload and overwhelm.

Adult rumination and anxiety is an involuntary response to sensory or emotional overload and overwhelm.

Punishment, subtly or overtly, through ignoring or chastising, does not meet the regulation need of the Autistic, but teaches them to mask and internalise their pain.
Autistic .. because it’s not a dirty word

#actuallyautistic #autistic #autisticadvocate #autisticappreciation #autistictherapist

Being Autistic means having a limited capacity for stimulation which looks like me only ever being a part-time friend

This can be perceived as being aloof, unavailable, uninterested or self-absorbed but is in fact the result of being easily overwhelmed and a need for a lot of alone time. 

The beauty of knowing yourself to be Autistic is that it offers this understanding and takes away the confusion in friendship. 

#actuallyautistic #autisticfriendship
As an Autistic person I am not seeking your acceptance - I wholeheartedly offer that to myself - I have far higher dreams - I am seeking a society where Autistic people are fully … and without qualification or justification … included, accommodated for, and appreciated as equal, valid and important. 

#actuallyautistic #autisticadvocate #autisticadvocacy #autistic #autisticpride
Being Autistic on World Autism Day CAN offer a chance to celebrate all that it is to be Autistic ….. BUT…… it is often also layered with the overwhelming desire to have it meaningful, real, valid, important, perfect … all values inherent to many Autistic people .. which means once again we find ourselves in the all too familiar space of wanting with all our hearts to make this amazing, but all that internal pressure leaves us depleted, and ultimately, immobilised.
