Established Acer Tree

we have recently moved into a new home. I have never done any gardening in my life. we have this lovely Acer. its getting more out of shape by the week. How do I prune this? Is there a certain place to chop the stems? How much can I remove? I know zero about gardening so please speak in baby terms!!
thand very much
That's really useful thankyou! a telescopic tool should do the trick, I'm not sure i'd be as effective on some stepladders with a pair of scissors!
Your tree looks lovely
I'd recommend waiting until mid-winter if you're going to do anything other than give it a minor hair-cut. Acers do bleed when cut, so always best to wait until your tree is completely dormant.
