We are the leading Intercultural Private Therapy service dedicated to offering a culture sensitive, trauma informed approach to talking therapies, for individuals aged 18 and over.
Here at Mabadiliko Intercultural Therapy (M.I.T) we support your healing process and help you find the pieces to your puzzle that make you feel whole; working to heal the mind, body and spirit holistically via talking therapy and creative spiritual expression.
Our services are delivered by qualified members of the Black African Asian Therapy Network (BAATN) and members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), with a combined total of more then 40 years experience delivering talking therapies.
If you are trying to find a therapist and looking specifically for a black therapist or a therapist of colour, look no further!
We provide a safe space to explore many common mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and stress. We specialise in sexual trauma and survivors of domestic abuse.

MABA-DI-LIKO is ‘CHANGE’ in Swahili.

Our mission is to improve mental health access, experience and outcomes for People of Colour (PoC), African, Asian, Caribbean diasporic communities, dual heritage persons, and those that identify as coming from an ethnic minority or global majority group.
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 specialise in therapy for issues associated with childhood trauma, sexual trauma, domestic abuse, generational and racialised trauma.

"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."
