ABOUT ME

Nicola Johnston
BSc (Hons) Social Psychology
MBACP (Accred)

I am a fully qualified person-centred counsellor using both person-centred and solution-focused techniques. I have a great deal of experience in supporting and counselling both adults and teenagers. I am an Accredited member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). This Accreditation status demonstrates that my practice has met the BACP's higher standard as a competent, ethical and independent practitioner. 

My interest in understanding and helping people began with getting my degree in Social Psychology over 20 years ago. Since then I have taken on roles supporting and coaching others. As well as working within my own private counselling practice I have undertaken various roles in the corporate sector and as such I can relate to the stresses and strains of this environment.
 
In addition to my private work I am a counsellor and psychotherapist working in the voluntary sector: I have been fully trained by the Samaritans to work as a Samaritans listener and I currently work as a counsellor for an agency in Maidenhead. In addition to this I have worked counselling young people in secondary schools both in Buckinghamshire and Berkshire.
