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. My therapy room is located in the idyllic setting of Grade II listed Merchant House.
WHAT I CAN HELP WITH
I have worked with clients in various settings including bereavement, trauma and adult mental health with a variety of problems including: loss, bereavement, child bereavement, still born loss, miscarriage, health related problems, self-esteem, anxiety, life changing/life threatening health diagnosis and spirituality.
I also work for Employee Assist Programmes (EAP)
I specialise in working with trauma and offer trauma focused CBT
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
I work in a person-centred way which means our work together is focussed on working to your needs in a way and at a pace in which you are comfortable. I help you find the way forward that is right for you by facilitating your inner potential.
