Our approach to talking therapies gives significant consideration to your ancestral origins as well as cultural and spiritual influences, no matter where in the world you are born and/or raised. The belief that these aspects influence your mental health experiences has inspired the
Four Pillars of M.I.T (Culture, Ethnicity, Identity and Spirituality).
Our approach enables holistic therapy that truly holds the
‘person’ at the ‘centre’ of their therapy.
The therapeutic journey is a collaborative process, 'you get out what you put in'. We work with you to identify aspects of your life that might be holding you back from your dreams and goals, and establish a set of tools for your 'tool bag' to support your healing journey during and after therapy.
We accept self referrals and third party referrals including GP referrals.
We have provided services for various organizations such as BLAM Charity, Womens Trust, Victim Support, Headstrong counselling, The Deborah Ubee Trust and more.

"It's really important to be able to talk about race racism and discrimination in therapy without fear of judgement, and feel understood without having to over explain things."
"Talking about private things in my culture is not really something we do, but this therapy has really helped me learn how to open up and understand myself better."
"Thank you so much for your help, I would have never believed that I could be the person I am now before I met you."
