Phil Reed

EFT Practitioner in Exeter

However challenging your current situation, I'm confident that the principals based understanding that I share can help you to quickly recover and sustain your natural resilience and well-being.

Based in Milton Keynes, my coaching is pragmatic, enjoyable, integrative, and individual, the primary purpose being to help clients recover their emotional health, resilience, and well-being so that their relationship with themselves and others, and life itself - can then improve.

Since establishing my practice in 2003, I've partnered extensively with the health & social services, criminal justice, charity, and business sectors; a diverse range of individuals, organisations, and communities - on and offline. My private client work is by telephone/online, which enables me to work with clients throughout the UK and beyond.

To find out more - I offer a free 30 minute in-person or telephone consultation. (please book yours through the website link above)

I'd love to hear from you.

My Specialisms

My particular blend of principle-based resilience coaching is effective for the following -

from trauma including all forms of physical, mental, emotional, and sexual abuse.
PTSD, domestic violence, rape, assault, redundancy, personal or professional loss, serious illness

everything professional and personal

Compassion -
relating differently to yourself and others; letting go of fear, resentment, contempt, anger ...

Communication -
deep listening, impacting others

Confidence -
in innate wisdom

from the inside out.

We're all more resilient than we realise.
It's built-in​. There's nothing to add or improve on.
This is a theme that runs through all my client work.

​Children and young people - all the issues that challenge them and worry us
With extensive experience of working with families in crisis, working privately or alongside statutory and voluntary or charity services, I offer an entirely fresh approach.

Wherever possible for younger children, I like to also work ​with parent/foster-parents, or caregivers​.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

My private client work is mostly by telephone and sometimes Zoom/Whatsapp. I work with humour, curiosity, and kindness.

Where appropriate, I complement the sessions with interim email support.

The number of sessions required varies from person to person but I usually advise a minimum of 6 weekly sessions. When I know about your situation and purpose for sessions, I'll be able to suggest what might be appropriate.

To find out more - I offer a free 30 minute consultation - or to book your sessions, please go to the Contact/Let's Talk link at my website (link is above) or

Additional Rate Information

My coaching sessions are held at Holmedale Health in Exeter. Telephone, zoom, and whatsapp sessions are also available. My session fees are set by the time only; ie they remain the same regardless of the approach(es) I use (usually a combination); and whether the session is for for one person, a couple or parent/child, or (for in-person sessions) several family members attend (where appropriate). I encourage you to first book my free Discovery Session, so that you can get a feel for how I work, and to confirm that we will be a good fit for your requirements. This informal session is usually by phone; I will call you at agreed time. During our chat I will usually be able to suggest how many sessions would be appropriate. The general experience of clients is that the coaching conversations we have are transformative in that the client will often have fresh insights into their life and psychological health in ways that transform how they go forwards. That is my hope and expectation. Thank you for your interest. Please get in touch through my website if you have any questions.

"Phil is an excellent coach who I have known for years. He has helped me out tremendously and I can't thank him enough. "

"The first time I met Phil, I noticed a positive difference in how I felt. Previously, I had problems with talking therapy as I never felt I could convey my self correctly. I felt Phil managed to gain a good understanding of my issues using non-verbal feedback. Phil also provided me with some techniques which I still use to this day, they continue to help me identify my problems and I feel better for using them."
