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.

Tunbridge Wells TN1 and central London W1G.

I offer empathy and compassion in a non-judgmental environment from private counselling rooms in Tunbridge Wells 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 therapist.

I have 18 years experience in therapy roles, with extensive experience 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 very 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 have been a reviewer and developer of exam papers and mark schemes for psychotherapeutic counselling studies Level 2 to Level 6, with both AQA and AIM Awards. I have also worked under a contract for hire with the BACP working on the certificate of proficiency which is the process of how counsellors can be registered.

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.

Central London W1G, City of London EC2, Tunbridge Wells TN1 and Rochester ME1

Work Mobile: 07498 895026

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.

Counselling experience

I have experience working with people in recovery from addiction before working with Harley Street Counselling and Training.

I work with young people, adults, and older adults across a range of issues that arise in counselling.

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.

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.

Jane Bolton MBACP

External Therapist

Tunbridge Wells TN1 and Rochester ME1

I work as a Humanistic counsellor and practice Brief Solution Focused Therapy and work with children, young people, adults, and older adults.

Counselling provides the opportunity to heal and grow through a relationship that allows you to explore difficulties and discover how you emotionally navigate the present, and what this means for you. Counselling is a place to act without façade and accept yourself and your personal experience. The counsellor will strive to stay in tune with your experience; willing to be close even in your distress. A therapeutic relationship is one which you are accepted and valued, but to accept yourself you need to know yourself, and this discovery can happen in relationship with an authentic, self-aware person who wants to travel the journey by your side.

Background and Counselling experience
In my career, I have been part of the KCC safe schools project with children vulnerable to committing crimes and have worked on the Healthy Schools project with Medway Council. I have experience providing solution focused therapy and motivational interviewing to both children and parents and have taught Online Safety Training (C-OP) and emotional health and wellbeing.
I currently assist counsellors in training to refine counselling skills as they prepare to go into practice at diploma level.

I have experience working with adults who are playing a vital role in supporting family members who are sick, infirm, or disabled. This role can bring significant levels of stress for the carer and can affect their overall quality of life including work, socialising and relationships. Being a carer can raise difficult personal issues about duty, responsibility, adequacy and guilt. Carers can often neglect their own well-being, however, if the carer access support for themselves, this has shown to have a direct, positive impact on the person being cared for.
I also have experience working with women who are experiencing emotional difficulties that have been exasperated during the perinatal period. Up to one in five women and one in ten men are affected by mental health problems during pregnancy and the first year after birth.

With the right help, the negative impact of mental health problems during the perinatal period can be reduced.
I am currently studying for the Level 5 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I have over 15 years of experience working with children. I work with children, students, parents, and adult clients.

Counselling fees vary based on location and whether you would like a daytime or evening session.
