About me

Hi and thank you for visiting my profile.

My name is Reece Byrne and I have been counselling individuals for over 13 years and have been supervising people for 10 years.

I am an integrative therapist and addiction specialist. I have worked with people struggling with addictions for over 15 years and draw on my own past experiences with addictions and partly use this to help others to control theirs.  I am able to draw on a number of different models of therapy in supporting clients to reach their desired goals, these models include Transactional analysis, psychodrama, person centred and psycho-dynamic approaches. I also offer coaching and professional development sessions and for those qualified or training in counselling and counselling psychology, personal therapy and clinical supervision.

I work full time as a Clinical Supervisor 9-5, but offer counselling and supervision Monday to Friday 'Evenings' and Saturday Mornings.

Since qualifying in counselling in 2009 I have also trained in Trauma work, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing and also completed my teacher training CERT/ED. I have my Certificate in Supervision taken at the Manchester Institute of Transactional Analysis. I am also an accredited mindfulness practitioner. I am currently studying 'again' May 2020 in 'level 5' leadership and management.

I provide one to one counselling, helping people with issues such as anger, trauma, low self esteem, low confidence, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, social isolation, childhood issues, emotional abuse, addictions, PTSD and relationship troubles.

I have a simple approach to my therapeutic work. I believe that when we are feeling isolated, hopeless, angry, guilty or just lost,  we become disconnected from both ourselves and those close to us. Part of my role is to help you explore why this has happened and help you gain an understanding of how you can use this self-knowledge to move forwards to a future were you have greater insight and a sense of belonging and gain some control back into your life.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me by either phone or email

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
