Lynn Johnston MA(CCYP), BSc(Psych), PG Cert. Adv. Counselling
A fully qualified counsellor & clinical supervisor. Qualified & experienced with phone & secure online counselling & supervision. Experienced working with clients across the spectrum of ages, cultures, sexual orientation and religious backgrounds, my core training is person centred. I offer an integrative approach across modalities such as cognitive behavioural therapy, solution focused and creative arts for those clients that find it helpful to explore troubling thoughts and feelings from a different perspective. Offering face to face, telephone and on-line therapy, I work in a collaborative, empathic and non-judgemental manner. As a member of the BACP, NCS & BPS I adhere to their ethical frameworks. My specialist training & experience is with children & young people, survivors of abuse (physical, sexual and emotional), depression and anxiety. I have worked with clients from 4 years to 68 years old. As well as private practice, I work with charities. Appropriate therapy & support can be provided for survivors of abuse (pre- and post-trial) and those with experience of significant trauma or helping clients with the 'tough challenges' that sometimes are overwhelming. I offer an initial consultation to assess if counselling is right for you at this moment in time and to ensure that we feel that there is the therapeutic connection that is necessary for our work together. There will be no charge for this initial consultation.
In supervision I aim to provide a safe, empathic and non-judgemental space where issues can be discussed and considered openly. Supervision sessions can be face to face, by telephone or on-line and group supervision sessions can be arranged if appropriate. I am able to provide supervision for all professions (counsellors, clinicians, teachers, police, social care) and groups up to 13 members. My supervision practice is based on the BPS structured and collaborative (SAC) principles. Having a master's in counselling children and young people and further qualifications in working with survivors of abuse, supervision for those working in these fields will be enriched.

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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
