South Asian Mental Health

As a South-Asian British woman, my own personal history is intertwined with the intricate dynamics of the South-Asian Diaspora. In recent times, I have noticed an increasing number of inquiries from clients within the South Asian Diaspora who reside in Britain. This particular context presents a unique set of challenges, and I feel privileged to have supported clients in navigating their issues and enhancing their mental well-being within this framework.

By working with individuals studying in the UK, immigrants, as well as second and third-generation immigrants, I have gained valuable insights into and provided support for various distinct challenges. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Negotiating family systems rooted in different cultures.
  • Balancing and embracing multiple cultural identities.
  • Addressing issues of shame.
  • Exploring religious identity.
  • Understanding the impact of immigration on personal identity and family systems.
  • Addressing themes of honor, shame, disownment, and family estrangement.
  • Navigating intergenerational living.
  • Cultivating and maintaining healthy relationships.
  • Addressing experiences of discrimination and racism.
