Linda Potter, BSc (Hons) 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) which means that I have committed to working within their ethical framework and professional standards. 

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 listened to, and this gave me the incentive to look at further training to become a Person Centred  Counsellor. Being fully heard, without judgement or conditions, is something we are rarely offered, but can be increadibly powerful. 

I work with young people and with adults, (either individually or in couples) within my private practice.  I also work in 2 local schools as a Counsellor for primary and secondary students, and I teach part time in a Children's Secure Unit. I live locally and I am married with three children. I enjoy reading, cooking and walking, and have a 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.

My charges are as follows:
Individuals - £45 per hour (concessions available) 
Couples - £65 per hour or £80 for a 90 min session (concessions available)
