At Bradford and Craven District Talking Therapies, we are working hard to improve this within our service. We have a dedicated LGBTQIA+ Pride Group who meet up regularly so that we can get better at supporting the people we work with.
If you need support with symptoms of depression or anxiety, then we are here to help. We offer evidence based talking therapies which can make a real difference to your life. We want people from the LGBTQ+ community to thrive as much as everybody else we work with.
As an NHS Service, you can expect to be treated fairly, professionally and without discrimination. We will complete an initial assessment and we won’t assume that your gender or sexuality is the main reason for your symptoms.
If you access therapy with us, you can expect to work with a practitioner that takes into account the interplay between your gender/sexuality and your symptoms of depression/anxiety. Your practitioner can speak with a member of our LGBTQIA+ Pride Group if they feel they need extra guidance. You can expect to be given to opportunity to raise concerns and for these to be taken seriously and handled sensitively.
