Linda Potter, BSc (Hons) Person-centred Counselling MBACP

Hi! My name is Linda Potter BSc (Hons), and I am a Person Centred Counsellor with over 12 years experience of counselling adults and young people.  I am a member of the British Association of Counsellor and Psychotherapists (MBACP) which means that I have committed to working within their ethical framework and professional standards. I work purely on line, via video link.

Qualifications

FdSc Person-Centred Counselling - University of Brighton

BSc (Hons) Person-Centred Counselling - University of Brighton 

Cerificate in Counselling Supervison - ONC

My background was originally in nursing and midwifery. After having my own children I trained as a Breastfeeding Counsellor for the National Childbirth Trust. Shortly after obtaining this qualification I began working with young people in custody and saw the value of using my counselling skills in a very intense, and often intimidating environment. As a rule, these young people had little experience of being fully heard, and this gave me the incentive to look at further training to become a Person Centred  Counsellor. Being really listened to, without judgement or conditions, is something we are rarely offered, but can be increadibly powerful. 

I work with young people and with adults, within my private practice.  I previously have worked in schools as a counsellor, and I have taught in a local secure unit for young people. I love what I do, and despite being a self confessed technophobe, I have found working via video link has been just as powerful as face to face. 

As well as counselling, I am a qualified supervisor of counsellors, and work with qualified Person Centred therapists and counsellors in training. 

 

In my free time I enjoy being with my family, walking, reading and I have a huge passion for rock music!

If you would like to make an appoinment with me, please either telephone me or email me.  I am happy to answer any questions that you might have, or if you are unsure as to whether counselling is right for you, we can discuss that, without obligation.
