Online virtual Listening Service
Transcultural therapy means that the counsellor is willing to understand and work with the different or similar cultural experiences and belief systems of their clients. A transcultural approach can be particularly helpful when experiences of prejudice and oppression may be contributing to the client’s feelings.This approach supports individuals to make use of autobiography, family and cultural history to heal emotional crisis, depression and relationship problems. Issues such as identity, sexuality, domestic violence, sexual abuse, bereavement and life change can be shared and supported. Individuals can also be supported to recover from trauma, develop coping strategies, use relaxation techniques, develop self esteem and assertiveness and create harmony and balance in their lives.
