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. 

My Approach

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.
