Victoria Reid Counsellor/Psychotherapist (Reg. MBACP)
I am a qualified, female counsellor, specialising in online counselling using Skype or other messenger services or if preferred, telephone.
A face-to-face service is also available and for many people, it's preferable.
I also offer a fixed 6 or 10 week group of sessions for short term work at a lower rate.
I also run groups on mindfulness and meditation to empower individuals to cope with stress and anxiety. Please have a look at the website to find out more.
I abide by the BACP guidelines and have regular supervision as required by BACP. Please do get in touch if you have any questions about what I do.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am qualified with a BACP Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy which means I specialise in a time unlimited model. In training I was required to complete over 150 hours of clinical work so through that and in the years since then, I have gained much experience in working with all kinds of issues including bereavement, trauma, anxiety, anger, depression, sexual identity and abuse. There is nothing that is 'off the table'. I believe in openness, honesty and the value in our simply being really human, no matter what that might look and feel like.
I have a background of teaching in mainstream education so am open to also working with younger adults and the problems that they may face. I also work with teaching professionals in that area and the stress they experience on a day-to-day.

Feeling better shouldn't depend on how much you earn- do get in touch to discuss it.
Don't be afraid to get in touch. It may seem daunting to release, to talk out all the pain, the worry onto someone else, a stranger. You may even think that there's no way you can afford it. Don't worry. If you're here, looking at profiles, then it must be time. Get in touch- head over to my website to get more information.
