About Sally Potter
Hi, I’m Sally Potter. A fully qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist based in the beautiful South Hams on the southern tip of Dartmoor in Devon, UK .
I am passionate about what I do and I find profound satisfaction in helping people to create positive change in their lives.
From Devon to Africa and back again!
I trained as a radiographer in Plymouth and enjoyed a 15 year career in the NHS and private sector before starting a family and moving with my husband to live in Gabon, West Africa.
A few years in Surrey on our return, then in 2005 Devon beckoned once more, and the Potter family has been settled here since then.
Whilst bringing up my family of three, with my husband working away for much of the time, I continued to study with the Open University – Technology, Health and Disease, and Astronomy.
I managed work and volunteering around the busy schedule of the children. However, as they became more independent I realised that I really wanted to return to a caring career, and that hypnotherapy was a profession in which I would make a real difference to peoples’ lives.
Training and Experience
I trained in Hypnotherapy in 2015 the Observatory Practice in Plymouth – part of renowned Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training. I am qualified in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy, holding a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH), and the Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (HPD), required for entry to the register of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH)
Never wanting to stop adding to my skills and learning, in 2019 I added a Certificate in BRIEF Solution Focused Therapy. BRIEF is the Centre for Solution Focused Practice in the UK, and Solution Focus informs my whole practice.
Now with over 6 years of experience under my belt, I’m proud to be helping people every day.
When I’m not working in my practice
You’ll find me on Dartmoor or the beach with my dogs. We currently have 5 Springer Spaniels, all related, from Great Grandma to youngest pup.
I also enjoy managing our little patch of land for wildlife and diversity. I’m just about to learn how to scythe, and I’ll be helping lay a hedge this autumn.
I am insured with Holistic Insurance and hold a current DBS check as well as undertaking regular supervision in line with the requirements of my regulatory bodies.
Clients can choose to see me at my home practice just outside Ivybridge, or online via Zoom from anywhere in the world!
