About me

 Welcome! I’m Imogen Hg-Johnson. I am the founder of ‘People of Worth Counselling and Psychotherapy’. I am a highly experienced psychotherapist for adults and young people and I am passionate about the efficacy of my work.

I empower and inspire individuals to stop secretly struggling, and to start living in alignment within themselves, ‘Feeling Free To Be Themselves’, so that they can start to reach their own potential. I work with a trusted methodology that removes all blind spots, fear, anxiety, and self-doubt. Allowing my clients to make accurate decisions, smarter, so they maximise their own personal results in less time, feeling “free to be themselves” living the choices and life they were meant for! The exact approach used with each person, depends upon their unique set of circumstances; so, this is not a one size fits all process.

As an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist trained to Masters Level; I utilise my extensive counselling skills set of Person Centred Practice, Life Story work, Gestalt Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing Therapy (CBT informed) Integral eye movements & Brian spotting, combined with Transactional Analysis (Penny Parks Inner Child Therapy).

My experience comes from working in four different therapy settings: the NHS GP Practice, the Criminal Justice System, public/ private law, and private practice.

I have experience of working with people ‘diagnosed’ with emotional instability through a chemical imbalance (Bipolar Disorder), manifesting in borderline and antisocial personality styles (BPD/EUPD).

I have worked with clients who are emotionally over-controlled presenting with perfectionism. Who have personalities that are avoidant, ‘workaholic’, obsessive compulsive and paranoid (substance induced Psychosis). As well as those who are chronically depressed exhibiting self-harming behaviours.

My expertise is in Self-harm, Substance misuse, Depression, Anxiety, Attention Deficit Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Sexuality / Identity Crisis & Shame around Learning Difficulties (which may have led to isolation, inability to stay focused and deviance) and more recently within the area of 'interpersonal trauma within relational dynamics'.

As an ex-sports lecturer with over ten years' experience of teaching, and one who, as a teenager, struggled with the complexities of both Dyslexia and ADD, I am confident my integrated approach coupled with my ability to empathise can benefit the lives of even the most troubled souls . In a similar way to how I relate to my young private clients and in the past have attuned with those I encountered whilst specialising in Drug and Alcohol Misuse (Criminal Justice Work) and Adoption Support, my non-judgemental acceptance and understanding of their vulnerabilities enables me to thoroughly and succinctly address whatever issues you may be facing. 

I am always willing to liaise with other professionals in your care, if that is your requirement. Some people find the use of diagnoses helpful, whereas others find it particularly unhelpful: I’ll work with clients whatever diagnosis means to them.

‘My work is ethical, confidential and non judgemental’.

In short, this is your process, and it would be my pleasure to walk by your side.

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.
