Have you been considering accessing therapy? Tackle issues around anxiety, trauma, and self-esteem with an LGBT plus focussed therapist – either face to face or online with four half price counselling sessions with BACP registered humanistic counsellor Carlie Pottington.

I booked up for the therapy sessions through Gaydio never done anything like that before. First session was amazing...


About Carlie Pottington: I am a qualified humanistic counsellor offering online therapy. I specialise in working with gender, sexuality, trauma, anxiety and self-esteem, providing an LGBTQ+ affirmative practice.

During lockdown I'm providing counselling over secure webcam link - but once restrictoions are lifted vouchers can be transferred to face-to-face sesions if you please.

My practice is defined by a relational way of working which means the relationship I build with clients is at the heart of successful therapy. It is within a trusted relationship you can feel safe to share your difficult experiences and emotions. I provide therapy to adults from all backgrounds, across the gender, sexuality and relationship diversity spectrum.

A long way to go but it was so cathartic to be able to unload without fear, shame or embarrassment. It's helping already. A positive step forward...



I have over 5 years’ experience working within the LGBTQ+ Mental Health sector providing face-to-face counselling for LGBTQ Switchboard and Mind Out. I understand the reason you might be seeking therapy could be irrespective of your identity, however, knowing you are working with an affirmative counsellor can take away the added stress of “coming out” to your therapist. Equally, I am aware we live in a heteronormative and cisnormative society and how this can impact on your self-worth and self-esteem, leading to feelings of shame, doubt, anxiety and depression. I bring my warmth, compassion and openness to the counselling process to co- create a space of trust and collaboration. In turn this ensuring clients feel heard, supported and accepted as they are.

I work collaboratively to explore client’s thoughts, feelings and behaviours, as well as our responses to each other. This process leads to clients experiencing a deeper understanding of yourself, increased self-awareness and the ability to implement growth and reach your full potential.
