Lisa Reed BSc (Hons) PG Dip. MBACP Senior Accred. UKCP Reg. and Supervisor
I am a Psychotherapist, Psychologist, Senior Accredited Counsellor and supervisor, with over 25 years experience in the counselling profession both in the voluntary and public sector and within the mental health field. I see people experiencing a wide variety of concerns such as :- depression, anxiety, bereavement, family and relationship issues, to bi-polar disorder, childhood abuse as well as male and female survivors of childhood sexual abuse. I work with GP's and consultants. My private practice is in Thames Ditton and the surrounding local areas in which I supervise practitioners and counsel individuals.
I have experience of working with a range of issues for brief or short term counselling to longer term psychotherapy and work with adults and couples. I also have experience working with adolescents both in groups and individually.
Often the decision to embark on seeking a therapist is a huge and daunting step for most people to take. I offer a unique space for you to talk about whatever you wish in a safe and confidential environment so that you are able to share concerns or troublesome issues that you may be experiencing. I create a place for listening, communicating and exploring thoughts which at times may be hard to share with others.
