Dr Gail Simon, UKCP, Individual, Couple and Family Therapy
I am a qualified Systemic Psychotherapist with over 25 years experience working in the NHS and in independent practice. I work as a counsellor and relationship therapist with
Couples - Individual Adults - Children - Young people - Families
As a systemic psychotherapist, my practice is based on a relational model of therapy. I focus on communication issues and working out how to go on in a more comfortable way in relationships. The conversational style is relaxed, explorative, offering and discussing ideas together. Appointments at a frequency to suit you.
I registered as a supervisor in 1994 and provide individual and group supervision for BACP and UKCP registered therapists with systemic or relational orientations.
I offer team and organisational consultation.
My office is near Ilkley, Bradford, Keighley and Skipton. I am happy to offer sessions via Skype when useful.

I have been working as a therapist, supervisor and trainer for many years in the NHS, Third Sector organisations and independent practice. I enjoy working with all ages of people, on their own or with partners, parents, children or friends.
I have experience of working with most population groups. I have a lot of experience working within the LGBTQI communities, new and re-forming families, where autism is present in people's lives.
Whether for a couple of consultations or longer, I understand therapy to be a constructive way of moving things on for people who are working through crises, redefining themselves, their relationships or their way of being in the world.
