There are too few BME psychotherapists in London. BME psychotherapy students face significant barriers to qualification.

I really feel you ladies should do a podcast around counselling within the black community and have topics covered weekly. I would so love to be involved in any projects you ladies do from one black therapist to another black therapist. We are needed and its vital that we help our community. BLESSING for your journey

Saw your flyer in a Caribbean restaurant in Ladbroke Grove. Therapy is so white and middle class at the moment, which is all well and good however there is a lot more healing to be done, by everyone. Great cause and really sorry i can't give more right now. Best of luck to you three.

Being in therapy myself and experiencing it first hand I have also realised the bias to wards being a service accessed by the white/middle classes, This does need to change, especially in diverse communities. Being able to talk to someone who can relate and understand you in terms of culture/ ethnicity/ class/ gender is really important. Good Luck x
