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
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.
