BAATN Workshops and Training

I am the director of The Black, African and Asian Therapy Network (BAATN). BAATN is the UK’s largest independent organisation to specialise in working with Black, African, Asian and Caribbean clients. The Network is a support for people of these heritages who are training to become counsellors and psychotherapists and those that are already qualified. BAATN also supports qualified therapists of all heritages to feel more confident to work with clients, supervisees and trainees who are people of colour. I am active in bringing the story of the Black, African and Asian experience in the therapeutic process to the general therapy community through articles, podcasts, and events aimed at attending to the wounds of race identity.
