Mandy Reid is a Reg.MBACP (Accred) counsellor/psychotherapist & clinical supervisor. Her core training was in Humanistic Gestalt Counselling at the highly respected Gestalt Centre in London. She works with a ‘here and now’ focus and supports her clients to compassionately bring healing to the source of their suffering. Mandy believes we are all creative beings, with the power to manifest our passions, life-purpose and to live as our authentic selves.

Along side her therapy practice she offers supervision to counsellors /psychotherapists and those involved in the healing professions. Mandy has particular interests in meditations, sexuality, shamanism, trauma and spiritual philosophies, which inspire her working practise.

I believe we come into the world as perfect and unique human beings and at stressful or traumatic times during our lives we may lose our sense of  ‘self’.  Therapy can give a helping hand to re-discover our uniqueness, get back to a sense of who we truly are, and to soften the impact of what caused us pain.

Recently I have organised shamanic healing retreats in South America with a gifted medicine woman, as well as working with numerous shamans and traditional healers. My passion is in finding out how we can bridge the traditional/ancient healing techniques with western therapy for our modern society.

What I’ve come to realise most with my international client groups and world travel, is that there is a universal need for connection, a sense of belonging, purpose and the need for community. Who I am -Who I love – What I do, and with whom I choose to do it with.

Starting therapy is a big step and shows real courage. This can be a life-altering step, if you choose it to be.
