Linda Potter, FdSc Person-centred Counselling MBACP

My name is Linda Potter. I am a Person Centred Counsellor, and I am a member of the British Association of Counsellor and Psychotherapists (MBACP). .

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 is in a very intense and often intimidating environment. As a rule, these young people had little experience of being listened to, and this gave me the incentive to look at further training as a Counsellor. I have also spent two years working alongside the Police as part of the Domestic Violence Team, and I continue to train student midwives in Domestic Abuse Awareness through the University of Brighton.

I obtained my degree in Person Centred Counselling through the University of Brighton, and I currently work at a local GP surgery one day a week.

I live locally and I am married with three teenage children. I enjoy reading, cooking and walking, and have a passion for rock music!

My charges are £10 for the initial consultation meeting and then £35 for a 50 minute counselling session thereafter.
