About Me

Yvonne Johnston–Counsellor/Psychotherapist MBACP(Accred) & Supervisor

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.
