Welcome

Hello,

My name is Sue Aspinall.  I am a fully qualified and experienced Counsellor and EMDR therapist.  By looking for help and support, you have already made an important step  towards positive change in your life.  I have been a therapist for over 15 years and I’m as enthusiastic about the power of psychological therapy as I have ever been. 

I can offer you a calm and confidential environment in which together, we will work towards enabling you to feel safe enough to talk to me about your difficulties.  I will use my experience and training, but will also be guided by how you want your therapy to be and the pace you want to work. 

If you are willing to come to appointments regularly, do your best to be as open as you are able to (at any given moment), then therapy can be an extremely positive and life changing experience.  

You can contact me by text, phone message or email and I will get back to you as soon as I'm able to.  

COVID19: my room is large, chairs are over 3 meters apart.  The windows are open (weather permitting).  The room is sanitised between clients.    I will wear a face covering if you would like me to.


About Me

I am a fully qualified EMDR therapist, counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor.  I’ve worked in the NHS and private practice for over 15 years offering both therapy and supervision.

I am qualified and trained in different models of therapy, including  CBT.  This means I can adapt the way I work to suit your needs, depending on your difficulties and your personality.

I provide a comfortable and safe space in the center of Bradford and will soon be working from Wilsden. 

I am trained and experienced in working with a wide variety of people with a wide variety of difficulties.  I feel passionately about therapy.  I have seen how powerful it can be, both personally and professionally.  I feel privileged to work in this area and to be alongside people as they start to move towards a more positive phase of their lives.

Services & fee

I offer counselling, psychotherapy, EMDR and supervision from my newly re-furbished and spacious therapy room in Central Bradford. 

 £50 counselling/psychotherapy and supervision per hour

£60 EMDR per hour

 


Experience

I have worked as a therapist and supervisor within the N.H.S. and private practice for over 15 years.  In both roles I have offered counselling and psychotherapy to clients and supervision to both trainees and experienced therapists.

I am also an experienced supervisor within group settings and the voluntary sector.

I have experience of working with a wide range of needs.  From clients who simply want a few counselling sessions to help them to sort out a current problem or dilemma in their life, through to people who have more deep-rooted problems and want a longer course of psychotherapy or counselling,  to help them to untangle more deep seated problems and who want to make more fundamental changes to the way they think and feel about themselves, their lives and others.

I also use EMDR to help people process difficult memories, or traumatic experiences.

I have also worked within NHS mental health teams offering therapy to people who have long term mental health problems.
