Gatherings for Experienced Practitioners and Students – Bristol

These gatherings will be held in Bristol for therapy practitioners of Black, African, South Asian and Caribbean Heritage. These gatherings are also open to other people of colour who are affected by prejudice due to the colour of their skin and global white power.

Separate spaces will be held for experienced practitioners and students.

The groups aim – to connect with other working therapists of colour, to gain support with developing ourselves as practitioners and to leave the group energised and inspired.

To find out about the kinds of themes or topics under discussion, as well as projects that individual groups are in the process of undertaking at some of the other BAATN gatherings, please take a look here.


The framework for each gathering:
– 15 minutes – together in one large group for silent inner enquiry.
– 90 minutes – in separate trainee and experienced therapists groups exploring issues the group wishes to focus on.
– 45 minutes – together in the large group with reforming exercise, discuss issues as decided by the group and ending exercise.

If attendees arrive late please wait until the next stage of the session so as not to disrupt the process.

Dr Yvon Guest and Lynn Hunt will be holding the space.
