Clinical Psychologist/Director

Dr Emma Johnston
Life often presents challenges that can lead us to feel overwhelmed and not able to cope anymore. We can even feel that our lives are starting to unravel, and then behave in ways that are unhelpful or even damaging. I am committed to assisting people finding their way through these difficult times.

I  have many years experience and a Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. I enjoy spending time with my family (including my recalcitrant westies) and I also am frequently to be found pretending to enjoy camping.
