About Me | My Approach

Hello, I’m Chloe Johnstone, a dedicated psychotherapist with a passion for supporting individuals. I offer collaborative psychotherapy with my use of the Relational Approach, and my Integrative training allows me to draw from various approaches. Including, but not limited to:

  • Transactional Analysis
  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
  • Somatic Therapy

Relational psychotherapy emphasises the importance of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client. Together, we would consider the role of interpersonal dynamics and how past relationships, especially in early life, influence your current psychological state.

When requested, my approach can involve understanding of the nervous system and somatic practices, which allows me to work holistically, considering both psychological and physical factors which may be affecting well-being. This approach is appears to be particularly useful for people who are self-aware but struggle to make effective change.

Psychotherapy for Neurodiverse Individuals

I aim to provide a safe and inclusive environment where neurodiverse individuals can explore their experiences and develop strategies to enhance their overall well-being. DBT’s emphasis on emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness can be particularly beneficial for neurodiverse individuals.

I’m dedicated to offering psychotherapy that is both empathetic and informed, ensuring that individuals receive the support they need to thrive. Together, we will embark on the journey to get you where you’d like to be.

Session Information

I understand that taking the step to seek therapy can be challenging, and this space is dedicated to addressing any worries or uncertainties you may have about the therapeutic process. Our first meeting serves as an opportunity to ensure clarity and establish a therapeutic contract.

During this initial session, we will cover essential topics, including:

  • Confidentiality: I will assure you that what you share remains strictly private unless there is an immediate risk of serious harm to yourself or others.
  • Fees and Availability: We will discuss session fees, availability, and scheduling to ensure that you have a clear understanding of the practical aspects of therapy.
  • Commitment to Therapy: We will explore the commitment required for successful therapy, establishing mutual expectations and goals.

This comprehensive contracting process fosters confidence in your therapeutic journey and ensures professionalism in addressing your therapeutic needs. In our initial session, we explore your experiences and build a therapeutic relationship. Your questions and concerns are actively encouraged, prioritizing your comfort. This session also gathers information about your life, past therapies, and goals.

I encourage my clients to become attuned to their body’s signals and sensations. The initial session provides an excellent opportunity to practice this awareness, as taking this significant step may trigger physical sensations or emotions.

It’s vital to underscore that you maintain complete control of your therapeutic journey. After our initial session, the decision to continue or not rests entirely with you, and there is no obligation to do so. My role is not that of an all-knowing expert but rather a supportive companion on your path to personal growth and healing. Your consideration of me as your partner on this journey is greatly appreciated.
