The BAATO network seeks to reflect the many who are committed, passionate and actively engaged in addressing, the psychological needs of Black and Asian people in Britain.



Black and Asian Therapists On-line student support groups

A support group for those of African, Asian and Caribbean heritage who are training to become psychotherapist and counsellors

Training to become a Black or Asian psychotherapist or counsellor presents us with the challenge of finding our voice within the silence of our minority experience. The BAATO Student Support Groups provide a space for students with an African, Asian or Caribbean heritage to tell their stories, clarify their dilemmas, and be met with enthusiasm, dialogue and support.

There will be two groups which will run throughout the academic year 09 – 10. Meetings will be monthly. Each group will be facilitated by two qualified and registered psychotherapists who themselves have an Asian, African or Caribbean heritage and the groups will be open to all students whatever their theoretical orientation.
