Kate is brilliant and I am so grateful to her for helping me thorough the 'journey' I have been on with her over the last year. She has that knack of making you feel really heard and understood - I felt like I could tell her anything and she would respond with compassionate acceptance. She is intelligent and has guided me in finding out many things about how my childhood has shaped who I am and helped me change some unhelpful patterns of thinking. I always felt better, after each session, even after talking about difficult feelings. Thank you, Kate!

As soon as I had my first session with Kate I had confidence that her compassionate manner and varied approach would help me manage my anxieties. I found her her approach both educational and effective; giving me a strong insight into myself. The methods we used have helped me both to tackle my anxiety and have instilled a refreshed lust for life. I would recommend Kate to anyone ready to tackle their anxieties, I can’t thank her enough for helping me feel myself again.

Over the months I saw Dr.Potter I noticed a huge reduction in the levels of anxiety and depression I was experiencing. She kindly and compassionately helped me understand my symptoms and how best to deal with them. I am extremely grateful for what she has done for me and would recommend her to anyone.

I have had a lot of longer term therapy, but none of it was as impactful as the months I spent with Dr Kate. She was kind and thoughtful and adjusted her approach to suit my needs and goals. I can honestly say that my life has improved significantly now, and I feel much better able to cope not only with day to day stresses, but the anxiety and depression that I had previously struggled with for such a long time. Worth every single penny, and if there's anything I want to work on in therapy in future I'll be back to see Kate.

I had completed therapy with Kate after commencing this in 2016. Kate's therapy sessions have been insightful which I have thoroughly enjoyed. I have been introduced to new concepts and was provided with an opportunity where I felt listened and understood. Kate's sessions allowed me to reflect upon all that has occurred so that I am able to move forward. I would highly recommend Kate to anyone. She is kind, empathic and open-all the characteristics one could hope for in a therapist. Kate, it has been a pleasure.

I was a bit skeptical about seeing a psychologist as I wasn't sure how it would help with my compulsive gambling problems. However, Dr Kate's professional and caring nature really helped me in identifying some of the root causes and triggers of where the compulsive thoughts come from. She has genuinely helped me in changing my outlook on life in general and I am very grateful for all she has done. I would definitely recommend Dr Kate.

Kate helped me when, during my pregnancy, I began to suffer anxiety and panic attacks. Her caring nature and professional attitude led to some hugely beneficial sessions, which allowed me to identify and tackle the causes of my panic attacks, alongside learning coping techniques for the immediate moment. Kate massively help[ed me to achieve a new balance in my life and I cannot thank her enough for the help, support and guidance she provided me.

Familiar with Dr Kate Potters practice over the last couple of years I have been impressed with the sensitivity and calmness she offers her patients. Particularly with shame and self-worth issues and the anxiety, depression and consequent relationship problems, these issues can cause. Key I believe is her use of mindfulness techniques and in particular her own mindfulness of where her patients are and her gentleness in engaging with them.
