At its heart, Aashna+ is a social justice project. Our aim is to develop a communal approach to individual therapy, inspired by the ethos of Aashna. Aashna+ will offer the possibility of a longer-term, low-cost service for people diverse in race, culture, social background, religion, sexuality, age, gender, disability and other diversity, who may otherwise struggle to access therapy. The therapists will be both trainees in placement and experienced therapists who are attracted to our ethos. Intertwined in this vision is supporting therapists to develop a practice that is sensitive to difference and the implications of existing power structures within the psychotherapy field and beyond. For more information see the Aashna+ web page here: https://www.aashna.uk/aashnaplus
We invite our friends, family and Aashna community to donate to the service to support therapy to be accessible to our community.
