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 am available in various places across Southampton so am flexible as to where best suits someone looking for counselling.
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 and we can talk about it.
