About me

I am licensed in the UK with 3 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, family conflicts, coping with grief and loss, & parenting issues. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage.

I am an Integrative therapist helping clients in their journey; my sessions are designed to provide a welcoming space for you in order to feel able to open up at a pace that you are comfortable with, and an environment that you feel safe within. My counselling is delivered totally without judgment, and each one of my clients is valued as an individual and treated with absolute respect, dignity, and care. I will offer you gentle, yet effective guidance and support throughout, and encourage you to gain inner clarity and understanding of the issues affecting you now, whether they stem from the past, present, or future. We will work together to introduce into your life the right practices and processes to target the feelings, fears and worries that reside within.
My background is in education; I have delivered mindfulness coaching and solution focused therapy to young people, and regularly incorporate techniques harnessed in those areas into my counselling sessions. I am a firm believer in the ongoing pursuit of discovering positive and mentally-healing practices that can benefit us all as human beings. Throughout our time together we will talk openly and confidentially about the issues that have led you to seek counselling, and we will work at a pace that fits naturally around you. Our sessions will be entirely confidential, mutually respectful, and entirely with you in mind.
I look forward to working with you and supporting you on your counselling journey.

I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy (MBACP). This means that I adhere to professional codes of conduct and ethical frameworks. Working diligently within their ethical guidelines and follow best practices at all times.

I am here to support you in your process.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Parie Reed. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I was at a place where I thought nothing would ever get better. I really thought therapy also might not help but when I started taking sessions with Parie I felt like she understands me more than I do. Her sessions gave me a lot of freedom from my negative thoughts, I started living a little more. I finally thought nothing is wrong with me. She is a Compassionate and good listener. I would recommend her to anyone who needs support living their lives. I can't thank her enough!!

Amazing therapist. On a first therapy she helped me a lot in identifying the reason for the problems and suggested on how to act on them, which was very efficient.

Parie is a professional, yet warm therapist that clearly has experience and knows what she is talking about. Her questions and reflections helped me to get a lot of clarity around my problems and take actions in the right direction in just a few sessions. I felt a lot better just after 2 sessions. She also validated my experience in a way that really helped me and I couldn't have experienced through talking with non-professionals and coaches (which I tried). I loved that she remembered details from our conversations and gave suitable homework suggestions. I can really recommend Parie!

Parie is incredibly understanding and sensitive. She helps me develop techniques to tackle my struggles with a hands-on approach that fits my needs. I can truly recommend her as a therapist.

After rather unsuccessfully having tried multiple therapists in the past, Parie has been a great support in my emotional and personal development over the last few months. Not only does she create a comfortable environment, she's also very good at analysing what was said and providing the tools for you to make the implications yourself. Could only recommend her as a therapist.

After going through a break up from a 9 year relationship, Parie has been great with helping me understand myself and my anxiety better, identify unhealthy behaviour patterns and also how to set boundaries with people. Her conscientious and understanding approach was ideal for me and I was able to make great progress with her as my therapist therefore I would definitely recommend her to anyone struggling with similar issues
