Experienced Practitioner Gatherings – London

This is a Closed Practitioner Event

These gatherings are for qualified psychotherapists and counsellors who are of Black, African, South Asian and Caribbean heritage. These gatherings are also open to other therapists of colour who are affected by prejudice due to the colour of their skin and global white power. Students who have completed their course and are working towards registration are also invited.

The groups’ aims are to connect with other working therapists of colour, to gain support with developing ourselves as practitioners and to leave the group energised and inspired. The group is also looking for clinical practice issues.


Venue: North London Group Therapy, London N7 6LA. Getting there
Time: 10:30 – 13:00

The space is held by Kris Black

Dates: The gatherings are mostly held on the 3rd Saturday of every month in North London
