These gatherings will be held in Bristol for therapy practitioners of Black, African and Asian Heritage. The groups are also open to other BME groups and People of Colour. See the communities we work with here.

Separate spaces will be held for experienced practitioners and students.

The groups aim – to connect with other working Black and Asian therapists, 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 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.

Please note: the Structure for the December gathering will be different. 
12-1pm Festive food and Networking – please bring festive finger food to share
1pm – 2.30 Practitioner gatherings Experienced and Trainees

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.
