About me

Yvonne Johnston - Counsellor/Psychotherapist & Supervisor Registered Member MBACP (Senior Accredited).

Awareness Counselling
Counselling, Psychotherapy & Supervision in Fleet, Farnborough, Aldershot, Hook & Odiham

I believe...

That we are born as ok human beings and through family, friends and social relationships we adapt our opinions and attitudes in order to relate to people. This natural process can become unhealthy if we over adapt to suit others and can effect the way we value ourselves.

Counselling can support you to help yourself in a safe and confidential environment. I will listen and respond in a way that acknowledges feelings and helps you explore options and alternatives.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

Couple Counselling
Couple Counselling can look at household responsibilities, rearing of children, social activities, money, communication, sex, occupational progress, personal independence, spouse independence and general happiness. We can explore what brings you in to counselling allowing both parties to be heard in a confidential safe environment. This can lead to empowering you to make the choices you desire and help reduce the influence of problems

I am a Senior Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by their code of ethics and practice. I receive regular supervision as required by the BACP guidelines. I worked in the drug and alcohol field for just over two years; I then worked with Relate, couple counselling from 1999 to May 2002.
