The Mental Health Needs of BAME Individuals & Couples
As a Counselling Psychologist of South Asian ethnicity, Dr Lamba has a keen interest in culture and racial identity. Our practice has an interest in the psychological health of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities and we provide both individual and couples therapy support to people across cultures. With Dr Lamba's unique interest in intersectional feminism, this is very much the lens through which we support people who come to us.
At Blue River Psychology, we have a special interest in exploring and understanding how patriarchy, culture, race and racism, intergenerational stories and traumas shape the total female identity and experience. We work with difficulties around self-esteem, depression, postnatal depression, body image, fertility problems, miscarriage and other pregnancy related losses, antenatal depression, attachment difficulties (both within motherhood and separate from motherhood), relationship difficulties, grief and loss, identity issues, career cross-roads, life transition and adjustment issues.
Blue River Psychology is dedicated to the psychological well-being of women as a whole and Dr Lamba has a keen interest in the experiences of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) women. Dr Lamba focusses on helping BAME women explore how cultural narratives and cultural systems may impact and shape their identity, well-being and overall position in the community and wider society.
As the Founder of the practice, Dr Lamba has experience working with a range of human experiences. She enjoys working relationally, particularly using feminist psychodynamic models of thinking to help clients feel empowered in overcoming their difficulties.
Dr Rima Lamba is the Clinical Director and Founder of the Blue River Psychology clinic.
Dr Lamba is a Counselling Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a Chartered Member with the British Psychological Society (BPS).
"I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own."
The thought of going for psychological therapy can feel daunting.
Dr Lamba likes working relationally as a way to try and help clients with feeling confident and empowered. Go ahead, contact us!
