Student Support Gatherings London
These groups are for those of African, Asian and Caribbean heritage who are training to become psychotherapists and counsellors. Students who have completed their course and are working towards registration are also invited.
Venue London Central:
25 Red Lion Square, London, WC1R 4RL
Time: 10:30 – 13:00
Gatherings are held on Saturdays, monthly
Training to become a Black or Asian psychotherapist or counsellor presents us with the challenge of finding our voice within the silence of our minority experience. The BAATN Student Support Groups provide a space for students with an African, Asian or Caribbean heritage to tell their stories, clarify their dilemmas and be met with enthusiasm, dialogue and support.
Each group will be facilitated by our Support Group Facilitators who are all qualified and registered psychotherapists and have an Asian, African or Caribbean heritage. Facilitators have also signed up to BAATN’s Core Values and Beliefs statement. The groups will be open to all students whatever their theoretical orientation.
The group will be for a maximum of 12 people
“I was touched and encouraged to press forward on my course and brought to a place of deeper appreciation of my particular learning environment”
“I can see myself training in counselling with the support of such a group”
