At Mabadiliko therapy we are dedicated to offering a culture sensitive, trauma informed approach to talking therapy, for individuals aged 18 and over. We offer a compassionate non-judgemental space for you to explore your well-being challenges and feel a sense of healing via the therapeutic process.
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.
Our Intercultural therapy and counselling approach is tailored to each individual, which makes it a unique and subjective experience.
Cultural identity, ethnicity, racial trauma, faith and spirituality are some of the key aspects of consideration that we integrate into the therapy process to support with your mental health and well-being needs.
What's on offer?
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. Our Intercultural Counselling Psychotherapy approach enables holistic therapy that truly holds the ‘person’ at the ‘center’ of their therapy.
The therapeutic process is a collaborative one, 'you get out what you put in'. We work with you to identify the elements that might be holding you back, and establish a set of tools for your 'tool bag' to support your journey during and after therapy.
Mabadiliko Therapy is not a free service but aims to accommodate the needs of the community with affordable fees. We operate a sliding scale, fees are assessed on a case by case basis.
Here at Mabadiliko Therapy we support your healing process and therapeutic journey. We provide Intercultural therapy for an array of common mental illnesses such as:
and much more.
