Hello and thank you for viewing my profile

I am an Intercultural Psychotherapist, supervisor & trainer, the Director of Mabadiliko Therapy Ltd, working in partnership with Mary Atito. Mary is a qualified Transcultural Psychotherapist and PhD student conducting research on Black men and mental health. 

We are trauma focused Integrative Intercultural / Transcultural Psychotherapists and work with a team of associate therapists to assist with your therapeutic needs. We offer mid-longer term Intercultural / transcultural psychotherapy at the Mabadiliko Intercultural Therapy Centre.

We combine different approaches and styles to tailor the therapy to individual needs with an analytical and intercultural/transcultural influence. We consider culture, ethnicity and spirituality as fundamental aspects of the therapeutic process, and acknowledge how your roots can influence your well-being and mental health experiences.

We have experience in providing psychotherapy for an array of psychological challenges such as:

We also provide counselling psychotherapy for general well-being challenges, where by you might just want a safe space to reflect and figure some things out by talking with a professional.

Additional services:

(Beverley)

- Clinical/Counselling Supervision, reflective professional supervision 

My main theoretical approach is Integrative Psychodynamic, influenced by Intercultural and Relational perspectives. I combine many different approaches to accommodate the needs of the supervisee and the client; and consider the impact of culture, ethnicity and spirituality on individuals regardless of race, gender or sexuality; inclusive of both the therapist/counsellor and client. 

As your supervisor, I will give you constructive feedback to enhance your practice, allowing time to explore you as a person as well as your practice as a counsellor. I will also support with ethical dilemmas, and give practical suggestions to improve your practice and CPD experience.

- Training & workshops

I deliver African-Centred Intercultural training for professionals and psychological practitioner students. Please see https://mabadilikotherapy.com/courses for more information.

I also run workshops on healing from racial trauma please see https://mabadilikotherapy.com/events for more details

(Mary)

- 90 minute, Single-session therapy

These sessions are motivational interview style therapeutic sessions and intended to promote rapid self-awareness, self development, and support with low level psychological disturbances. It is also an opportunity to gain more understanding of the intercultural therapy experience, and insight into how your cultural, racial and spiritual realities influence your mental health. 

PLEASE NOTE:

Beverley is currently only assessing new clients for Mabadiliko Therapy and is not available to provide individual client sessions.
