What people have been saying about BAATO

"When I was training as a psychotherapist it was very difficult to find an experienced and qualified practitioner who could reflect some of my difficulties as a black woman of multiple heritage. The BAATO website offers clients and trainees access to counsellors, psychotherapists, supervisors and trainers who understand and have experience of the BME communities in Britain today. At some point many of us need to have the experience of being in the room with someone who has a shared or allied understanding of our struggles and challenges. Additionally this should be someone who has spent time clinically considering issues of identity and their relevance to the work of therapy. I believe the BAATO project to be an important development in the fields of psychotherapy and counselling because it offers you this opportunity"
Carmen Joanne Ablack
Integrative Body Psychotherapist, Trainer and Supervisor

"It is particularly helpful to be able to refer clients for therapy and trainees for supervision to experienced colleagues. It is good to have a pioneering organisation like BAATO for Therapists of Asian and African backgrounds to meet and work together"
