Sexual Abuse therapists in Bristol, England ENG, United Kingdom GB
Counsellor/Therapist, MA psych, Dip SW
Experiencing sexual abuse can be a traumatic and life-altering event, and it can have a significant impact on an individual's mental and emotional well-being. As a therapist, I specialize in helping individuals who have been affected by sexual abuse. I use evidence-based therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), and Dialectical Behaviour therapy (DBT) which have been proven to be effective in treating the effects of sexual abuse. CBT is a form of therapy that helps individuals identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that may be contributing to their emotional distress. TF-CBT is a specific type of CBT that is designed to help individuals who have experienced traumatic events such as sexual abuse. In therapy sessions, we will work together to understand the dynamics of the abuse, and develop strategies to help you process and heal from the trauma. I will also help you to set realistic goals and work towards a positive future. Sexual abuse can be a difficult and overwhelming experience, but it is possible to heal and move forward. I am here to help you through this process, and I encourage you to reach out for help.

My name is Heather Bradley and I am a Trauma Therapist specialising in Sexual Abuse. I also specialise in working with Adults who have experienced Childhood Sexual Abuse. Having worked in this area for over 10 years and I do understand how living with the effects of sexual abuse can create feelings of loneliness, confusion and despair.

I have personally overcome my own Childhood and Adult Sexual Abuse and really do understand how daunting starting this process can be.

Registered Psychotherapist, BSc(hons) Counselling and Psychotherapy, Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Facilitator, MBACP (accredited)
People who have experienced sexual abuse, and abuse of other kinds, have often found ways to survive their experiences. However, survival often means sacrifices lots of other things, like your relationships with other people, your sense of self, or perhaps your connection with your own body. I have experience of working with people who have dissociative experiences of various kinds. I am also trained to offer body-based work where appropriate, which is a yoga-inspired, trauma-sensitive way of healing from trauma.

Registered Psychotherapist, Rev, DD (hon), DMin, Various Dips & Certs.
I am able to deal with sexual abuse sufferers on any level and that includes rape victims either recent or in the past - One woman was 72 and had been raled at 17 and still had the trauma until i dealt with it in one session to gain release. She was amazed that is had been carried all those years and damaged so much of her life when she could have dealt with it in Trauma therapy in the past 20 years and needed not suffer in silence any more.
