Why Asian Psychologist (me)?
 
  • We as Asians aren’t bought up to share or articulate our emotions. Rather we have been conditioned to think about impacting the community with our right or wrong actions. For instance: others’ feelings are more important than our own and it’s considered rude or selfish to think about ourselves first. We are taught to buck up, carry the burden and sort out our issues by ourselves mostly in isolation. In majority, talking to a psychologist or psychotherapist is seen as a weakness.
  • We need to make safe spaces for people to open up and share cultural or community, generational specific challenges and unkind emotional events.It provides a safe space to understand and normalise the importance go individual role in who we are, what we believe in, where we have come from, and what drives us going forward. 
  • Working with a psychologist who shares your identity, can speak Hindi, Punjabi and English can not only help you to combat stigma but also to build up a stronger therapeutic relationship.
