About me and my therapy practice

  • 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 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 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.


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. As a relational therapist I will work with you collaboratively to enable you to work towards the best solutions for you

Depending on your need I may integrate other approaches. Approaches used vary but can also include: Psychodynamic, Relational, Solution focused, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy( CBT) and Art therapy. We will work together depending on your specific needs.

I can offer counselling in English, Urdu and Punjabi.
