I hold an MSc in Pluralistic Counselling and Psychotherapy, with additional training in Couples Counselling and Child Counselling.
I've been in private practice since 2018. I did additional training parents whose children have ADHD through CAMHS, after my son was diagnosed in 2020. Then, through doing additional research and becoming a member of various online groups, I put the pieces together and realised I also had ADHD.

I would work to help you make sense of your feelings, moods, behaviour, and motivations. Helping you understand and resolve your difficulties by increasing awareness of your inner world and its influence over your relationship with yourself and others.
Hello and a very warm welcome. I'm Marc (he/him). I’ve been seeing people as a counsellor/psychotherapist since 2003, starting at the Nottingham Priory as a drug and addictions therapist, and later as a volunteer at the Nottingham Counselling Service. I’ve seen a wide variety of people, working with a broad range of issues, from weight to worry, from isolation and loneliness, to feeling overwhelmed and swamped by others.
I've worked many times now with people who have self identified as on the autism scale and consider themselves to be ND or ADHD..
This is all about you, understanding how it is for you in your life, how your journey has brought you to where you are, and looking at where you want to get to psychologically (and perhaps how you're going to do that)
I'm warm and I'm a thoughtful person and I try to create what feels like a safe environment within which you can explore how it is for you.
I have a lifetime’s experience with neurodiversity and mental health issues so I understand the challenges these can bring for individuals and for families. I am here to listen to what that means for you, working at a pace that is comfortable while providing gentle challenge to help you feel safe, connected and in control.
I am Katie Johnston and I run Busy Minds Counselling in Perth, Scotland. As a neurodivergent counsellor I enjoy working within a pluralistic framework which draws from different modalities to support clients’ needs and challenges during therapy.
Our work together will explore your needs and is not defined by one way of working with at times the need to " think out of the box" to find new ways to approach challenges and sticking points in life.
I provide a safe and confidential space to explore your concerns and work collaboratively to build a therapeutic relationship to understand you without judgement and to support your growth and change.
Currently I offer online, telephone counselling as well as in person sessions.
I have a keen interest in working with those experiencing complex trauma, PTSD, bereavement, ADHD, Autism, anxiety, depression, disabilities, anger issues, cancer and chronic pain/ health related issues.
Prospective clients are welcome to get in touch for a complimentary 15-minute consultation.

- Internet AND Pornography Addiction

I am a counsellor specialising in the treatment of ADHD, anxiety, depression, stress, addiction, issues with self-esteem or relationships, and repeating patterns of behaviour you’d like to change. I am also diagnosed combined-type ADHD.
In addition to my private practice work, I run ADHD support groups in association with the charity ADHD, and recently appeared on the 'Conversations with Nick Conn' podcast discussing ADHD. My writing has been published by Happiful Magazine, and is often featured on the Counselling Directory website.
Trained in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, my practice has developed to emphasise the relationship between therapist and client and I endeavour to create a safe, non-judgemental environment in which your presenting issues can be explored and better understood.
I work in private practice from my home in Whetstone, N20 and offer sessions five days a week either in-person or online via Zoom, Skype, Google Meet or Microsoft Teams.
I am an experienced, qualified counsellor and psychotherapist working in Wantage, Oxfordshire. I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and have worked for a number of years with both charitable organisations as well as private practice. I am an integrative psychotherapist, which means I use a range of modalities and techniques to help clients. I believe we are all individuals and work through problems differently. I tailor my therapy to work with the client and respect that individuality. I work with many neurodiverse clients who have struggled with making sense of a largely neurotypical world. My approach is to help clients understand and embrace their neurodiversity so that it can be positive aspect of their life experience.
Whether you want to explore a specific issue, want support during a difficult period in your life, or want to explore your past experiences more in-depth, I provide both short-term and long-term therapy to suit your needs. I offer a safe and confidential environment in which we can explore the basis of any problems or anxieties which may be getting in the way of living a happy and fulfilling life.
Can you imagine feeling calmer, more settled, and self-aware?
Experiencing the frustration and struggle of needing to explain everything to something who doesn’t understand?
As a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with lived experience of ADHD, I can help you to explore what is going on for you, whether in your head, inside your body or wherever you feel that feeling that things are not OK right now.
With the #livedexperience of ADHD and neurodivergence, I hope to explore the emotional impact, the emotional cost and the potential for growth and change for you.
I currently see lots of people who are struggling with what life has thrown at them, and people who have been struggling for a long time. I recognise these tendencies and hope to provide the connection, empathy and understanding that can make the difference to you.
Whether you were diagnosed as a child or have had a recent adult ADHD diagnosis and need support in coming to terms with it, or you suspect you may have ADHD – I would like to help.
