Welcome my name is Gina.
His Promises Counselling came to life in 2020 after deciding to change direction following 14 years working as a therapist in schools and youth services.
My heart lead me to work with women with low-self esteem and anxiety.
As I became more involved in this work I noticed a growing number of women of colour particularly from African, Caribbean and Asian backgrounds seeking therapy.
This has been an exciting journey thus far, meeting and assisting some inspirational women from varying backgrounds, lifestyles, and careers.
Sadly, many of these women were experiencing anxiety and burnout due to their hectic schedules.
It concerned me that many of them felt that their voices were not being heard or understood by their doctors, therapists, and other professionals due to a lack of cultural awareness.
This has resulted in the mishandling of their issues sometimes with detrimental consequences, leaving them feeling vulnerable and untrusting of public services.
This has highlighted the importance for women of colour to have an 'advocate' on an experiential and cultural level, to assist in tackling social and cultural biases they face; to bring about healing.
As more Women of Colour are seeking therapy it is important to find a therapist who is Culturally Sensitive.
Being able to form a therapeutic alliance is fundamental to achieving positive outcomes.
I promise to facilitate a mutually respectful relationship, where women can feels safe, in a non-judgmental, confidential and culturally sensitive environment.
To create a place for free expression, to speak freely without inhibition; to be respected, heard, and understood.
To build self-esteem and confidence; in order to reach their full potential.
To Encourage, Uplift and Empower women of courage and to
experience the promises of Yahuah's love.
