I am proud to say I receive counselling! Without it I don't think I would be the person I am today. From the start the black counsellor created a safe space that made me feel comfortable enough to share personal information with her without fear of judgement. Having a black counsellor meant that she was able to relate to cultural and social issues, which made it easier for us to have a meaningful conversation.
This black counsellor has been insightful on many family, social and black issues that I feel I wouldn't have addressed with another therapist. I have now embarked on Counselling Training and I was telling my colleagues that after having been through a lot counselling and personal development throughout my life, it was this one black counsellor who helped me find my authentic self (and continued to do so).
BEES continues to provide support via mediation, consultation and coaching. as well as culturally sensitive EAPs to companies and organisations.
