Colleen Heenan has had a psychotherapy practice in Bradford and Leeds since the 1980s. She has experience with a wide range of difficulties including depression & anxiety, eating disorders, relationship problems, couple counselling, stress & anxiety, low self esteem, bereavement, traumatic stress disorders and chronic mental health problems.

After 30+ years as a psychodynamic psychotherapist working with unconscious processes, Colleen retrained first in EMDR and then in attachment-focused EMDR in order to make her work more accessible and efficient.

Colleen was a co-founder of the Leeds Women’s Counselling and Therapy Service, worked in an NHS Eating Disorder Clinic in Salford and was a Supervisor at Bradford RELATE. She did post-graduate training in psychotherapy theory, practice and research and her PhD explored eating disorders therapy.

In addition to her therapy practice, Colleen has been a volunteer counsellor with SOLACE, an organisation offering therapeutic support to asylum seekers and refugees

Colleen also teaches the Alexander Technique, a form of postural re-education for people who suffer from muscular tension, performance stress and other physical tensions.
