Mark Potter. PCC MBACP
Mill Therapy Centre
Welcome and thank you for viewing my profile. I am primarily a Person Centred Counsellor though I have undergone training in other areas such as CBT. I am fully insured and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
As we move through life we can find ourselves in difficult times and in need of some emotional support. In addition, sometimes we become aware of our past shortcomings that affect our day to day living. Furthermore, life deals us hands that we can find difficult to move beyond and can become stuck. With so many counsellors available, choosing a counsellor can become an added difficult decision to make.
I believe that what I am able to offer is a very confidential, warm, friendly and non-intrusive environment to work in. Within this environment we will build together a trusting and supportive relationship so you can feel held to give you the opportunity, if needed, to explore the most difficult of feelings. My style of counselling is based on the works of Carl Rogers, giving someone the space to explore themselves and offering a non-judgmental and empathic support in the process. This enables you to be able to reach your own conclusions and decide on your own way forward and helps you to build your own strategies rather than someone telling you what you should do. With this in mind, people find my style of counselling very empowering.
