About me

Chris Reed

I am a Counsellor, Life Coach and a Teacher with over 20 years of experience. I provide a safe, confidential environment where together we can explore issues which are troubling you and find effective strategies for coping and moving forward.

I work with a range of issues including depression, self-esteem, bereavement (loss) and relationships.

I work with individuals, couples and families.

I have worked over 11 years as an Employee Counsellor taking referrals from Insurance companies and EAPs.

My therapeutic background is Integrative where I use a variety of therapeutic tools to assist individuals - including drawing from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), TA and Gestalt.

I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UKRCP and I adhere to their guidelines and code of ethics. I am also a Senior Counselling Associate at Redlands Counselling and Training Centre, where I provide supervision to newly qualified and experienced counsellors.

  • Flexible appointments
  • Face to face or telephone counselling / coaching
  • Short or long term focused counselling / coaching
  • Online counselling / coaching
