2-Hour Focused Workshops:

Once/month for 6 months

Self-Recovery is Nancy Johnston’s evolving model for codependency recovery. With 35 years of focused work with codependency, her Self-Recovery model conceptualizes codependency as loss of self in someone else, as overfunctioning for others/underfunctioning for self. With these ways of understanding codependency, she teaches 4 interlocking elements involved in Self-Recovery: Self-Understanding, Self-Awareness, Self-Competence, and Self-Attunement. This model builds from her earlier work presented in her book Disentangle: When You’ve Lost Your Self in Someone Else (2nd Ed) (2020).


This Workshop Series is for people interested in working on their self-recovery. It provides an opportunity to study the 4 elements in detail and to create self-assignments for practicing the content presented.


These are workshops, not group counseling. The Workshop Series involves an initial 3-hour workshop followed by 2-hour focused workshops once/month for 6 months.


$150.00 for the 3-hour workshop. Fees include a copy of the workshop power point which is the “textbook” for our work together


Payment can be made by using Zelle, Cash App, or Square or by mailing a check to Nancy L. Johnston at her address on the attached Registration Form.


$50.00/focused workshop. Payments can be made at the time of the focused workshop.



This workshop is for a minimum of 4 participants and a maximum of 8 participants. It will be offered on the virtual platform and broadcast from Nancy’s office suite in Lexington, VA.
