About Me

My name is Christina Johnston and I am a HCPC registered Art Psychotherapist and full member of The British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT) and I am currently a BAAT NI committee member. I completed my MSc Art Psychotherapy degree in 2021 and my BA (Hons) Fine Art degree in 2019. 


I set up Christina Art Therapy as a response to the growing art therapy needs within Northern Ireland. Furthermore, through Christina Art Therapy I have predominately worked with primary schools under the Healthy Happy Minds Programme and within Community Centres facilitating one-to-one art therapy, group art therapy and an art for wellbeing programme that I created called 'Healthy Creations'. Additionally I currently hire a space in Lisburn for private practice. 


 I have also worked within different organisations such as;

Sally Gardens Community Centre (June 2022 - Present)

Resurgam Healthy Living (June 2022 - Present) 

The Education Authority NI (January 2022 - Present)

PIPS Hope and Support (June 2021 - May 2022)

Links Counselling (May 2021 - Present)

uHub Therapy Centre (Feb 2020 - August 2022)

I have worked with clients between the ages of 5 and 70 through individual and group art therapy and the  Healthy Creations programme.
