Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation I am currently working online via Zoom or by telephone.
Welcome to my website. My name is Nina Bradshaw. If you are struggling, please reach out.
Psychotherapy offers a unique space where you will find a listening ear. A place to reflect and to think about what is troubling you. Psychotherapy can help you to feel less alone. You may find a place to overcome challenges, to try out new ways of relating, and to process painful or traumatic memories from the past.
Life can sometimes feel difficult, and like there is no-one to turn to.
Maybe you feel lost, distressed, stuck and un-fulfilled?
Or perhaps you have a sense that things just don’t feel as they should, that your life is not going as you would like it to.
Relationships seem unfulfilling, work or family or other parts of your life are not giving you the pleasure you hoped for.
Do you have childhood issues that keep impacting on your life? Maybe you lost a loved one at a young age, you were neglected, or were abused, and still feel the trauma of this echoing down the years.
You may have been diagnosed with a mental health concern, such as anxiety, depression, PTSD or complex PTSD. Or maybe you have a compulsive behaviour, such as an addiction or struggle to manage self-defeating, repetitive patterns.
Psychotherapy can help with these and other such dilemmas.
In today’s fast-paced world, psychotherapy offers a change of pace, a chance to sit and think and reflect on what it is to be human in the modern world.
Perhaps in the safe space of therapy, you can start to make some sense of the things you struggle with and begin to find a way to move forward and into a more fulfilled and enjoyable life.
Be aware, therapy is not a quick fix. It can take time. If you are willing to commit to yourself and the process of therapy, you may be surprised at the changes you can make.
A little about me: I have 18 years experience as a mental health professional, working in the NHS and Charity sector.
I worked firstly as a Social Worker, then as a therapist. I have trained in individual psychodynamic psychotherapy, in group psychotherapy, and in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as well as a number of short courses in other types of therapy. I have worked with a huge range of people from all walks of life. With my professional experience and life experience, I feel I can offer a warm empathetic, nurturing and containing environment in which you will be listened to, and have your story heard.
I am fully insured with an up-to-date DBS (Police Check). I am compliant with the GDPR (Data Protection) so you can be assured of complete confidentiality. I am a member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
I am based in South Manchester, UK
