Elaine Potter, MSc Therapeutic Counselling, MBACP
As a counsellor trained as an independent integrative therapist I am able to work in a way which suits each individual. I see counselling as a journey which we embark on together in order for you to understand and deal with the issues which are concerning you.
I work in Sutton, Surrey. Sessions last for 50 minutes and once we have agreed a time, that is your space as long as you wish to continue. I am happy to do both short term and long term work.
I am happy to discuss any issues you wish to bring up, whether you are struggling with specific problems or a more general sense of not dealing with life. I have worked with people with depression, anxiety, relationship problems and many other issues. I also have experience of working with people who have suffered from domestic abuse.
I am a registered member of the BACP and work within their ethical framework http://www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework/
