Here is what our attendees are saying

“I thoroughly recommend this course to every therapist. I think it should be mandatory on our training journey and I am ever so happy and relieved that I have found it before I qualify. Sam and Mamood showed great care, professionalism and deep understanding of past, present and future of othering. They provided us with a safe and welcoming space to be authentic, to meet in our differences and to find the courage to look honestly at our personal biases and systemic assumptions too. They provided us with a vast amount of precious theory and finally with really good, practical suggestions on how to implement those learnings in our practice. ”

Sylwia Korsak

“I have learned a little more humility as regards how I come across as a white therapist. I really valued the feedback both yourself and Sam offered me about working with Black, Brown and clients of Colour. I need to watch for coming across as ‘a bit holier than thou’!….when attempting to own my whiteness. I learned more about the importance of sensitivity when bringing up racial differences and racism….. that there isn’t a right way necessarily…. but that openness and willingness to learn is key.”


“I appreciated the way the content was delivered and emerged in a timely and relevant way to meet the needs of the group. I also appreciated Mamood’s input was kept to a sensitive minimum, guiding direction without directing the discussion. This was a life changing course for me which enabled me to really and honestly address issues that I have avoided albeit unconsciously”

Jan Baker, Chair of Membership Services Committee UKATA

“The training was a brilliant experience. It was informative, insightful, and hugely valuable – both personally and professionally. I would most definitely recommend it to other therapists. ”

Emily McArthur

“The course was amazing. I have become more aware of my learnt internal racism and am finally tuning in to what affects those of diverse heritage. I am losing friends as a result but I am comfortable with that. My white goggles are coming off finally. I do have much more learning to do ”

Janice M

“I have developed more confidence in challenging my white colleagues, for example if they are expressing their colour-blindness or possibly not seeing the bigger picture (e.g. systemic racism ). The reality of being white and privileged is dawning on me much more and it feels like a painful and necessary shift. ”
