We all have our own individual identities, but being part of a group can offer a sense of security and belonging. Discussions regarding faith and culture is an important part of life for many people. Whether through a shared religion or culture, being surrounded by like-minded people can be a great comfort. Being able to explore beliefs and cultural issues without judgement can be hugely rewarding and lead you to a greater sense of contentment. Some people experience cultural or religious discrimination which can cause depression and anxiety. Others may be questioning the values and beliefs they have been raised with. Subsequently, this can bring a sense of loss, guilt or even fear of rejection. At The Eaves, our therapists work ethically and within professional guidelines. They can provide a safe, non-judgemental space for you to discuss how your faith or cultural difficulties are affecting your life.
Faith is what you believe to be true and righteous and culture is your way of life as
passed on from generation to generation. This can cover a wide range of issues, these
might include; race, religion, traditions, spirituality, multi-faith or multi-cultural society
differences or cultural or religious discrimination.
At the Eaves we have multilingual therapists that are here to help you navigate your
thoughts and beliefs in a non-judgemental space.
Religious discrimination is treating individuals differently because of their religious
beliefs and practices.
