For Reuters customers only. At a masterclass in London psychotherapist Richard Reid gives a lesson on charisma. (Soundbite) (English) RICHARD REID, PSYCHOTHERAPIST SAYING : "I certainly believe that it can be taught. I think it would be disingenuous of me to suggest that everybody can get to the same level as each other because some of it is very much dependent upon your starting point." In masterclasses or one-on-one sessions Reid's lessons include personal empowerment, body language and approachability. (Soundbite) (English) RICHARD REID, PSYCHOTHERAPIST SAYING : "The handshake is a big part of the course in many ways it's representative of some of the key aspects of theory that we're trying to teach people." Reid is also a body language specialist and has strong views about what some politicians and stars are communicating. (Soundbite) (English) RICHARD REID, PSYCHOTHERAPIST SAYING : "I think the handshake of Donald Trump for me, although I don't know him personally, it really ties in with my sense of him, it very much portrays him as a bully." (Soundbite) (English) RICHARD REID, PSYCHOTHERAPIST SAYING: "I have a definite sense that Theresa May isn't comfortable in the spotlight." (SOUNDBITE) (English) THERESA MAY, BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, SAYING: "And we will make Britain a country that works not for a privileged few but for every one of us." (Soundbite) (English) RICHARD REID, PSYCHOTHERAPIST SAYING: "There's nothing there that really inspires us to have confidence in her. I think she has a slight stoop. Which again doesn't suggest strength. (Soundbite) (English) RICHARD REID, PSYCHOTHERAPIST SAYING: "David Beckham comes across as a very likable guy. I would argue as to whether he's actually charismatic though I think much of what he presents is manufactured he's very fortunate to have had a very successful football/fashion career." From Trump to May, from your handshake to your confidence - Richard Reid says charisma is only a masterclass away.
