Personalised Care and Guidance
DR KARLA JOHNSTON
Karla sees individuals over 18 years old.
Our clinical and counselling psychologist, Karla, has been providing support, care, and understanding to our local community over twenty years.
She believes everyone deserves kindness, respect, and a safe space to express themselves freely.
Making the initial step to access this type of care can feel overwhelming…but it is worth the risk to be heard and given a voice towards self-kindness.

Karla is available weekdays and Saturday.
Karla offers the following treatment modalities, depending on presentation:
Motivational interviewing; solution-focussed behavioural therapy; cognitive-behavioural therapy; behavioural therapy (e.g. PET, imagery techniques, ERP); trauma informed therapy (e.g. EMDR); grief counselling; and general counselling.
As well as applications of: polyvagal theory and therapy; dialectical behavioural therapy; and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Karla has a PhD and is a fellow of the APS Clinical College, and the APS Counselling College.
