Multilingual Counselling

What is Multilingual Counselling?

Are you new to the UK, or living here for work or study? There may be times when you miss home and family, you may struggle to feel understood – or perhaps you have moments of feeling isolated without the support of people who know you best. This can make you feel anxious, depressed or stressed, and can affect how you feel about yourself.

At The Awareness Centre we have a team of multilingual therapists who understand the possible challenges you’re facing, and can offer counselling support in your native language. They offer a warm, confidential space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings – and they make it easier for you to express emotions in your mother tongue rather than having to translate everything into English.

Our multilingual counsellors work in more than 25 languages and are trained to work with a number of issues, from relationship and family concerns, to anxietybereavement, sexuality, abuse, bullying, addiction, anger and depression and use a number of approaches to therapy. They work with individuals, couples and families.

Our counsellors offer support and help you resolve your difficulties. Our therapists appreciate and respect difference and diversity in culture, age, ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, physical ability and spirituality.

We offer counselling in the following languages:

We currently provide counselling and psychotherapy in the following languages; Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Dari, English, Farsi, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Italian, Korean, Kurdish, Lingala, Mandarin, Mongolian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Sign Language (English & British), Slovenian, Spanish, Swahili, Turkish, Twi and Ukrainian.

What people say

When I first started my sessions with Bathma I was in a very anxious and confused place. I felt very lost. Our weekly sessions gave me space to talk without feeling judged. It helped me uncover some difficult feelings that we worked through together and also changed my perspective on the issues I had  been struggling with. This has given me a better understanding of my self and helped improve my close relationships. I feel in a much better place, less anxious and more able to enjoy life.
