The truth is that our finest moments are likely to occur when we are feeling deeply unhappy, uncomfortable, unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.

Welcome to the website for Peter Johnstone, Therapeutic Counsellor.

June 2022. I am not taking on any new clients.

I work with individuals, seeing anyone who would like help with difficult feelings, in the first instance with a no-obligation meeting to discuss your needs in a confidential and caring setting.

As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I subscribe to its ethical standards.

My approach involves person-centred counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), plus techniques drawn from mindfulness-based cognitive therapy.
