Women Practitioners Group

This is a Closed Practitioner Event

A support group for qualified female psychotherapists and counsellors who are of Black, African, South Asian and Caribbean heritage. The group is also open to other therapists of colour who are affected by prejudice due to the colour of their skin and global white power.

The support group’s aim is to energise and inspire each other’s practice and passions. Together we will create a space where we reflect together as qualified practitioners, to support a sense of shared experience, growth, and mutual facilitation.

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 other BAATN gatherings, please take a look here.

The space is held by: Poppy Banerjee and Mickey Peake

Comments from members

“I enjoyed the group, it was open, supportive and non judgemental. The space was safe to talk or to listen” – Debra Villet

I felt it was a supportive and nourishing environment as are all BAATN events because they are for people of colour and it is important to be able to have a safe place to share our experiences in the world of counselling and therapy”

“I am very thankful for the space not only for connection and support which is offered but also for the mental stimulation and process!”
