Challenge and opportunity as Black co-trainers

Paulette Gibson and Patmarie Coleman are both black women who co-run a two-year Diploma in Counselling. This, as you can imagine, is a rare situation in counselling training which has truly crossed the line. Paulette and Patmarie talk about the opportunities and challenges they were presented with in becoming co-trainers and leave us encouraged that we could do the same.

Working with Asian women and domestic violence

Poppy shares her many years of experience working with Asian Women in domestic violence where the barriers to crossing the line and seeking help are monumental and where shame and belonging are very powerful and curial organisers within the family system.
