Susan Reid PgDip MBACP (Accred)
After qualifying at St George's Hospital, London I had a long and varied career as a nurse clinically and in education where I developed an interest in pastoral support which led me to re-train as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist.
Training and Qualifications
I found the pastoral support of students interesting and rewarding and so started with a counselling skills course. I wanted to learn more, and so I continued with further studies at Roehampton University where I qualified as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist.
I have undertaken additional training in CBT and am able to incorporate some elements of CBT into my practice; I have learnt how to work through play and art therapy at the charity Place2Be, and attended a number of study days at the the British Infertility Counselling Association of which I am a member. I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists.
ExperienceMy work has been with students, professionals and people from all walks of life who have had a life experience they want to talk about. I have volunteered in agencies which support adults and young people with their life challenges, depression, anxiety, relationships and study (organisation, goal setting, barriers and blocks). For five terms I worked with infant school children using play and art therapy.
Code of Ethics
I am a registered, accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their Code of Ethics.
