We offer free, one-to-one counselling for women and girls who live in the Bradford area. You can self-refer to our counselling service or be referred by other organisations and agencies such as your GP or support worker. Counselling can give you some time and space where you can think, reflect and talk things through. It takes a lot of courage to come for counselling and it’s not always easy to talk about your thoughts and feelings. You don’t have to talk about anything that you are not ready to talk about. Your counsellor will not judge you or tell you what to do. She will help you to try to make sense of what has happened to you and to recognise what you need to move forward. We have a counselling service by Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) counsellors for BAME women and young women. Jyoti counsellors speak Punjabi, Urdu and Mir Puri. We always use interpreters when need so you can use the service whatever language you speak.

The Jyoti service is a specialist service for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic women and girls, which is run by Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic women. Jyoti offers a culturally sensitive approach to dealing with issues around rape & sexual violence. The fear of how we will be perceived within our family, community and culture often means that these issues are dismissed, kept secret or never acknowledged. Shame and family honour prevent many women from speaking about their experiences. Our workers also understand how racism can impact on women’s lives, and make it harder for us to find the support we need. The Jyoti service is a safe place where you can come and talk about the difficulties you face at the moment, or the abuse you experienced in the past. Confidentiality is of the upmost importance. We offer services in a range of languages and are able to access a confidential interpreting service. All our counsellors and interpreters are BAME women. We run a specialist Jyoti helpline, so you know your call will be answered by a BAME woman. We offer one-to-one counselling, which gives you a safe, non-judgemental space to be heard by a specialist counsellor who can help you explore the impacts of sexual violence. Through regular face-to-face sessions, the Jyoti service hopes you will be able to shed the shame, find positive ways of coping, and recover and heal. We also run a support group which enables women to come together, to share their experiences and their own ways of coping, and to support each other.

We run therapy groups for 14 – 18 year olds who want to be with other girls and young women who have been through similar experiences. We meet in term time after school. Girls and young women can have a difficult time at home, or lose their friends and be bullied after experiencing sexual violence. The opportunity to be with other girls of a similar age who may understand some of what you have been through is really important to the girls who come. To begin with, most girls are very worried about coming to a group, but once they come, they feel pleased to be there and look forward to it every week. We talk and think together about: How to keep safe. Feelings that can be really difficult. How to manage when things are hard. The girls are very good at keeping confidentiality about what is said in the group. They are also fantastic at looking after each other when things are tough at home or at school. The girls say the group is safe and that they can say what they really feel. They know the workers will listen, believe and respect them. We provide taxis so girls can get to the groups and home safely. We also provide some snacks and drinks in each session. We can take referrals from the girls themselves, their families, schools, social care, Victim Support or other organisations or agencies.

Mindfulness courses for female survivors of sexual violence and abuse Mindfulness is a way of being in the present moment, a way of being aware of our thoughts and feelings with acceptance and kindness. Mindfulness helps us to recognise our negative patterns of thinking, and to realise that we can let them go. When we criticise and judge ourselves we make our lives much harder, mindfulness gives us a way of making friends with ourselves. Research has shown that practicing mindfulness has huge benefits for both our mental and physical health. The course we run uses the insights from this research, and covers practical techniques to reduce our stress levels and increase our well-being. It has eight weekly sessions in which: We learn formal practices to develop mindfulness – these are meditations where we learn to focus our attention on specific things such as our breathing, or our whole body or on developing kindness. We learn some ‘mindfulness in action’ practices which are little things we can do in everyday life to help us let go of stress. We also cover information to help us understand how our minds work, so we can have more control and choice about what we do.

With the help of a parent or carer, Anxiety Island is designed to help children from the ages of 4-12 to deal with anxiety, fears and phobias, using simple and manageable steps. Written by experienced family Psychotherapist, Audrey Sandbank, Anxiety Island uses proven methods of therapy broken down into easy-to-follow steps, which children can manage at their own pace. Children can suffer from all types of anxiety, which becomes a problem when it affects their emotional well-being. Young children especially may find it hard to express how they are feeling, making it difficult to know what to do. Presented in a unique game format, children can battle their dragon (their anxiety) by completing daily tasks and earning stars. As they progress through each level they will learn how to overcome their anxieties, and be equipped with the tools to stay strong. At the end of each level, the child has a chance to shrink the dragon and prove they are no longer scared, after having learnt new ways to cope. By the end of the game, the child will find their dragon is no longer a problem and that they are better able to deal with their issues. With detailed information for the child’s guardian, Anxiety Island can help with the following: - Fear of contamination Fear of dogs Fear of insects Fear of the dark & monsters/ghosts etc Fear of being alone in an area of the house Fear of separation (School and home) Fear of going to school Fear of feeling sick Obsessive anxieties and thoughts Obsessive behaviour Selective mutism Anger management Additional advice is given for fear of separation from the parent at bedtime; however this needs to be completed without the child’s knowledge and therefore without using the app. Anxiety Island can be used on a daily basis, or as and when needed, and can also be used as a source of information on the psychological issues listed above. Using a successful method of therapy designed specifically for children, Anxiety Island can help children to manage their own therapy, whilst providing guardians with the right information to offer support. By breaking the method down into simple, daily tasks, children will find it much easier to understand and deal with their emotions, by developing unique ways to cope. Audrey Sandbank is UKCP registered and has worked for many years in CAMHS children’s clinics, helping children with emotional and behavioural problems. Having worked for many years in both the private and public sector, Audrey currently runs her own private practice and also works for the Young Minds Parents’ Helpline; as one of a panel of professionals who offer a ring back service giving advice and counselling. Audrey has published two books on child Psychology and is consulted from time to time by programme makers and national newspapers.

Negative emotions usually come with negative thoughts. When you are depressed or anxious, your thoughts can become too negative and stop matching the reality of the situation. It’s like you are looking at everything through negative lenses. One way to improve your mood or anxiety is to look at your thoughts and test whether they are realistic by looking at evidence for and against them. If you are interested in doing this, this app can help. This app helps you track situations that make you feel sad or anxious, or other negative emotions. You can then test whether your thoughts are realistic by looking at evidence for and against them, and come up with different ways of viewing the situation. Thought records are often used in cognitive-behavioural therapy, a type of talking therapy that has been shown to be helpful for issues such as depression and anxiety. Designed by mental health professionals, “My Thought Record” can be used by people on their own or who are already in therapy.
