Tim PotterIntegrative therapist
I am an experienced and accomplished counsellor, psychotherapist, supervisor, lecturer and sessional author. I have been in practice for 20 years as an individual and group therapist in private hospital and private practice settings. I have specific experience working in mental health with anxiety, postnatal depression, panic attacks, health anxiety, OCD, stress, and addiction.
I work as an integrative therapist who offers empathy and compassion in a non-judgemental environment who works in a user centred way. I am influenced by Humanistic approaches to counselling such as person-centred, T.A and Gestalt. I have additional training to work specifically with Ego-states, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and training to work with OCD using CBT. I am familiar with the 12-steps when working with addiction(s). I believe (and evidence suggests) that the working relationship between the therapist and the client determines how effective and successful the therapy becomes.
I work with people who experience anxiety, work related stress, stress, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder OCD, low self-confidence, low self-esteem, panic attacks, panic disorder, bullying, bereavement, anger, couples counselling, relationship issues, jealousy, addiction(s), affairs and betrayals, generalised anxiety disorder, post-natal depression, chronic fatigue synfrome, psychosomatic, bi-polar and alcoholism.
I can accept clients who self fund or via an insurance policy such as Cigna, AXA PPP, Bupa, Aviva, Simply Health, Pruhealth, WPA, Allianz and other insurers. Clients with Bupa cover will normally require a GP referral letter in order for cover to be granted.
