Student Support

 

Training to become a therapist presents significant emotional challenges and given that therapy is predominantly a ‘white profession’ help is not always at hand to non-white trainees.

BAATN wants to give students confidence in knowing that they can be part of, what is traditionally a white middle-class profession, and support them with the many ethical, spiritual, personal beliefs and value systems that can be overlooked when one is from a minority.

Student Support Groups

These gatherings are for those of Black, African, South Asian and Caribbean heritage who are training to become psychotherapists and counsellors. 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.

Mentoring Programme

One to one support to Black, African, South Asian and Caribbean students who are in counselling or psychotherapy training. The programme is also open to other people of colour who are affected by prejudice due to the colour of their skin and global white power.
