Tim Potter - MBACP (Accred) & Registered Counsellor - Member of the UK Chapter of Logotherapy

  • ROLE
    Lead Therapist:
    Recognised psychotherapist with: AXA PPP, Bupa, Aviva, Simply Health, Pru-Health, WPA, Allianz, Medisure.

    Central London W1G and Tunbridge Wells TN4

    I offer empathy and compassion in a non-judgmental environment from private counselling rooms in Tunbridge Wells, Rochester and Harley Street, central London.

    It is important to me that counselling is user-centred, which means that I include you when agreeing our work together. This places you in charge of what you would like to gain from therapy. Where appropriate I am able to integrate my approach to what is developmentally needed in the therapy work. I regularly monitor how clients experience counselling because this helps to keep focused on what we have agreed to do. This approach underpins my attitude to therapy regardless of approach.

    As a counsellor, I work with common issues that affect wellbeing and can work in short-term counselling. I also work with more complex issues in long term in psychotherapy.

    Originally, I qualified in Humanistic therapeutic counselling (Person centred therapy, T.A, and Gestalt) in 2000; with subsequent training in psychodynamic counselling and Self-Reparenting techniques. I have training in CBT, and have specific training using CBT for obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). Most recently, I have trained in Viktor Frankl's Logotherapy, obtaining the qualification of Diplomate clinician in Logotherapy. This has influenced how I practice as a counsellor.

    I have 17 years experience in a therapy role, working from private hospital & private practice settings.

    I have worked as an individual & group therapist, both at the Priory, and Cygnet Hospital, where I have worked therapeutically on the general therapy programme for anxiety and depression. I also have experience with Addiction Programmes, Eating Disorder Unit, Adolescent Unit and the Mother & Baby Unit for Postnatal Depression.

    When working with addiction, I have gained significant experience working in alcohol counselling; and working with adult children of alcoholics, and codependency. I am familiar with the 12-step process of addiction recovery. Clients gaining support from A/A, Coda, O/A, SLAA, N/A and Al-Anon are welcome.

    In addition to private practice, I am a reviewer and developer of exam papers and mark schemes for psychotherapeutic counselling studies Level 2 to Level 6, previously with AQA, and currently with AIM Awards.

    I teach counselling at CPCAB Levels 3, 4 & 5 and have co-authored/co-facilitated a Diploma in Supervision for Counsellors, Psychotherapists and Allied Healthcare Professionals.

    I work collaboratively with you to discover which way of working suits your current needs.

    Within the confidential space, you can feel able to explore your difficulties in-depth and begin to increase your self-understanding in order to bring change through counselling.

    I was trained as a humanistic counsellor. This means that I am non-judgmental and the core of my practice is that I provide a friendly, down-to-earth, and safe space. I provide empathy and unconditional acceptance.

    What matters to me is the client-counsellor relationship; many studies show that the counselling relationship is a major factor in the client's therapeutic growth.

    I draw on knowledge of various counselling approaches to help reduce your psychological distress and enhance well-being. I'm able to bring in elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in a client-centred way.

    I have experience working with a wide range of issues such as anxiety, PTSD, depression, bariatric surgery, substance misuse and addiction, self-harm, low self-esteem and confidence. Also, sexual and physical abuse, flashbacks, trauma, dissociation, loss, bereavement and relationship issues.

    I practice in Kent and London. In Kent, I provide counselling in Tunbridge Wells and Rochester. In London I practice in the city opposite Liverpool Street station. I also practice from Harley Street, central London.

  • Background
    I have an extensive creative and media background before retraining as a counsellor. Studying A-Level Art in conjunction with a Diploma in Performing Arts has been a great aid in developing creative therapy. As not every person is able to speak out their feelings and thoughts freely.

    After graduating with a BA (Hons) Degree in Writing. I went on to work with a leading corporation as a Web Producer for many projects and award-winning programmes which aided me to deal with people across all levels, interviewing and dealing with sensitive issues and situations.

    Throughout embarking on the counselling academic journey, I enjoyed every learning process. I thrive on my passion for the therapeutic process, working with diversity and unconditional respect.
