South Asian Mental Health
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 generally, but with Dr Lamba's specialism in women's mental health, we are particularly interested in the psychological needs of BAME women and specifically South Asian women's mental health and well-being.
Blue River Psychology has a special interest in perinatal and reproductive psychology, immersed with an interest in patriarchy, race, culture and diversity. We work with difficulties such as: postnatal depression, female fertility problems, miscarriage and other pregnancy related losses, antenatal depression, attachment difficulties within motherhood, identity issues, low self-esteem and 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.
