Hello and welcome my profile,
I understand it can be hard to understand the reason behind the pain we are feeling. We may struggle when trying to find some meaning and purpose to what we are going through.In our counselling sessions I offer a safe and confidential space to help you explore, understand and resolve these difficult emotions.
My name is Maryam Riaz and I am a registered therapist with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I offer counselling sessions in the heart of Bradford City Centre – Little Germany.

I have a Humanistic philosophy to my work which means I take a holistic view of problems and in our sessions we can discuss and explore any aspects of your health and wellbeing.
TYPES OF THERAPY

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
