Our mission is to provide the community with a culturally sensitive counselling psychotherapy service that holds a worldview and considers culture, ethnicity, race and spirituality as fundamental aspects for all users of the service.
(The Four Pillars of Mabadiliko Therapy)
Mabadiliko Therapy holds the belief that no matter where in the world you are born, raised or live, your ancestral origins and cultural influences play a significant role in the make-up of who you are, and influences mental health experiences. The Intercultural Counselling Psychotherapy approach enables holistic therapy that truly holds the ‘person’ at the ‘center’ of their therapy.
Traditional and widespread approaches to talking therapy are often delivered from a Euro-centric perspective. This approach can sometimes fail to meet the needs of people from Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups or People of Colour (PoC), as cultural sensitivity and true empathetic understanding is limited.
Mabadiliko Therapy's Five Stages to Healing Model is labelled in Swahili, to exemplify the value placed on ancestral roots. The stages can be demonstrated in any chosen language and illustrates the process of change and healing by renewing the mind.
Along the journey of therapy we acknowledge your Roots and aim to identify the root cause of the problem, recognise the impact this has on your Mind, reflect and Process conscious awareness, in order to Renew thought patterns, which ultimately results in Change.
