Relational Gestalt Counsellor/Psychotherapist
MSc (Middx Univ.), UKCP, EAP

Skype and telephone offered

My name is Liz Kerry-Reed. I completed my formal training in psychotherapy in 2003 with a Diploma from the Metanoia Institute and a Masters Degree in Gestalt Psychotherapy from Middlesex University in London. Subsequent specialist trainings have included bereavement, couples counselling, bodywork and clinical supervision for other therapists. I have been registered with UKCP, the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy since 2003 and since 2008 with the EAP, European Association for Psychotherapy.

My experience as a counsellor/psychotherapist in England has included working in a hospital setting with patients diagnosed with cancer and their families and also facilitating supervision groups for nurses. I have worked for twelve years as a counsellor/psychotherapist in a private capacity with a number of issues ranging from loss and bereavement in its many forms, life-changing circumstances arising from illness or retirement, as well as more long-term psychological conditions. I particularly enjoy working with relational issues arising between couples, with families, or developmental issues with children.

I work with both individuals and couples, sometimes looking at problems arising currently, sometimes exploring together events and influences from the past that may affect current patterns of relating. Sometimes, particularly with children, I may offer painting, play or movement, as a further means of self-expression.

I moved to France in May 2008, and have been working with both French and English clients since I registered my practice in September 2008. I work in self-contained practice-rooms at my home near Berric, 20 minutes south of Vannes.

I offer one-hour sessions and usually see clients once a week for a mutually agreed number of sessions, depending on the nature of the difficulties and the wishes of the client. Before entering into an agreement, I suggest an initial short meeting free of charge, as an opportunity to understand what counselling or psychotherapy means and how it may help. My fees can vary and be negotiated at that time. I prefer to work in person with clients but also have experience of working on the telephone or using Skype as an alternative.
