Psychotherapy Practice   Sebastian Potter   Clinical Psychologist

I offer confidential treatment for most DSM5 Diagnoses and provide psychotherapy and counselling to children, teenagers and adults in coping with all manners of life’s difficulties.

 

With children these include amongst others, Addiction, AD/HD, Anxiety Disorders, Oppositional- Defiant Disorder, Conduct Disorder, Depression, Eating Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Parasuicide etc.

 

With adults these include amongst others, Addiction, ADHD, Anxiety Disorders, Depression, Eating Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Parasuicide, Personality Disorders, Paraphilias etc.

 

My therapeutic style is one based on Rogerian principles of empathy, unconditional positive regard, genuineness and congruence. With an original background in Analytical Theories as well as Systems Therapy, as I have matured as a therapist I employ more and more methods of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Frank Farrelly’s Provocative Therapy as well as DBT’s Mindfulness . Relaxation techniques are employed too.

 

A good dose of humour is always included :-)

 

I also focus on exploring resilience and enhancing clients’ own inner resources.

 

Employment Assistance Programmes (EAPs) in the Kaiserslautern area also make use of my services for brief resources-oriented solution-focused counselling.

 

Further, I also offer counselling when caught Driving Under the Influence of alcohol (DUI/DWI).  This ADAPT Equivalency training programme concludes with a certificate that the course has been attended and the topics were compliant with the ADAPT programme for completion of the requirements of reinstating driving privileges after a DUI.

 

I also prepare English speakers for the German MPU.

 

I have undergone extensive training through the Veterans Association and undertake C & P Psychological Examinations for Mental Disorders, PTSD etc. for veterans living in the KMC and beyond.
