The Black, African & Asian Therapy Network (BAATN)

< Back to directory


BAATN are the UK’s largest independent organisation to specialise in working psychologically with people who identify as Black, African, South Asian and Caribbean. Their primary focus and area of expertise is to support people from these heritages. However, they are open to other People of Colour who are affected by prejudice due to the colour of their skin and global white power.

They are a membership organisation and membership comprises mostly counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists of Black, African, South Asian and Caribbean heritages of various theoretical orientations. However, there are also many members of BAATN who do not identify as being from these heritages but they are interested in supporting us in achieving the aims.

If you are looking for a therapist / counsellor there is an online directory of therapists who represent a range of different theoretical orientations and specialisms and are experienced in working with the distinctive African, Caribbean and South Asian experience.

They hold meetings for therapists which include: Asian gatherings, Mens gatherings, Womens gatherings, Experienced Practitioner gatherings and Student gatherings.
There is a London Group but also a Midlands Group and a South West Group.
