About Multicultural Counselling & Psychotherapy
We are all multicultural beings as each of us, regardless of our background, comes an array of multicultural contexts. These cultural contexts may include many dimensions of diversity including, but not restricted to age, ethnicity/race, gender, geographical location, or community, language, sexual orientation, spiritual/religious beliefs, socioeconomic situation, physical ability, and experience with traumatic situations. In this sense we offer multicultural counseling as each of us comes from a unique cultural background. Wellness and positive psychology movement focus on the strength that client brings to counselling. We help clients through problem solving, work through challenges to promote their mental health.
Our Counsellors listen empathically to client stories and understand their difficulties, but an important part of the multicultural counselling process is help client to search out and understand strengths of available resources. In our multicultural view of counselling we believe that people can change and be fully involved in their own growth.
Our accredited therapists with BACP, IACP, IAHIP and NAPCP work with clients from different cultures with competence, as our therapists have developed knowledge of many cultural groups. We are aware of socioeconomic influences on the client and give special attention to how racism, sexism, hetrosexism and other oppressive forces may act on a client's worldview.
