We are very pleased to introduce our newest member of the Studio 3 Ireland team, Raymi Doyle.
Raymi has recently started a new full-time role with Studio 3 as a Research and Development Lead, Senior Psychotherapist & Neurodiversity Practitioner. Raymi is now part of our multi-skilled team in the design and delivery of trauma-informed, therapeutic, neurodivergent, and educational support services for a range of service users across the island of Ireland and the United Kingdom. He is passionate about being able to offer this level of support to those that live outside the geographical area and to those who may need a more bespoke support package tailored to their needs. Raymi has began translating his theory of neurotransception from his doctoral research into his clinical practice, as well as disseminating this across multiple other channels here at Studio 3.
Raymi Doyle is psychotherapist who has been providing therapeutic and educational services to both individuals and organisations in the fields of autism and trauma since 2005.
After completing a psychology degree in the UK, he moved to the USA to complete a Masters in Counselling/Psychotherapy where he continued to develop his therapeutic and supervisory practice as lead clinician in a wraparound service for autistic children/young people, which provided therapeutic support services across a wide range of communities and cultures. He returned to Ireland as part of a team who managed a school for autistic children before moving back to Northern Ireland, where he began to see a real need for psychotherapeutic support for both clients who were autistic, as well as the staff providing support services.
This led Raymi to open a private practice specialising in autism and trauma to meet the individual needs of clients, as well as providing clinical supervision to practitioners. Raymi also developing a bespoke training programme that was disseminated through multiple educational and therapeutic services.
Raymi has also presented on various national conferences with both the BACP and Middlesex University, and been a guest reviewer for the British Journal of Guidance and Counselling for articles on Autism. He has recently completed and submitted his thesis for his Doctorate at Metanoia Institute where he is exploring “Bridging the Gap between the Autistic, the Therapist, and the Theoretical Perspective.” This developed into the theory of neurotransception, which was grounded in the data from examining the relational dynamics between therapists and clients where either or both parties identified as neurodivergent.
Raymi is excited to have started a new full-time role with Studio 3 as the Research and Development Lead, Senior Psychotherapist & Neurodiversity Practitioner. He has integrated his clinical and supervisory practice within the Low Arousal framework, where Raymi recognises that both ethos complements each other. Raymi has found his background in trauma-informed care, along with his theory of neurotransception, fits comfortably within and complements the Low Arousal Approach, where there is a focus on developing relationships and making connections with clients/service users whether online, via telephone, face-to-face, or a hybrid of all.
Raymi’s role involves being part of a multi-skilled team in the design and delivery of trauma-informed therapeutic, neurodivergent, and educational support services for a range of service users across the island of Ireland and the United Kingdom. This will range between face-to-face, online and hybrid support system models of therapeutic and neurodivergent support that will be client centred and family/system focused, promoting a Low Arousal relational approach. Raymi is passionate about being able to offer this level of support to those that live outside of the geographical area of practice, and to those who may need a more bespoke support package tailored to their individual needs. In the past few years, Raymi has been focused on growing an online therapeutic presence to provide that service.
Raymi works with a wide range of associates at the regional, national, and international level who have specific experience in certain areas, and who can be brought in as a multifaceted team to ensure services are tailored to be effective, efficient and affordable to all.
Raymi has also began taking a lead in developing a relational stepped debriefing support package that he has already piloted with a range of key staff providing support to service users, where he has been able to begin to integrate his research findings into this service. This is something that he is passionate about further developing and he would like to begin to offer this to all key staff in Studio 3 as well as the services that we work closely with in partnership.
We are delighted to have Raymi on board with all of his expertise, kindness and compassion!
