Time: 10.30am–12.30pm

Venue: Room 2, Elizabeth House, 39 York Road, Waterloo, London SE1 7NQ

About the Coffeelogue

For those new to this event (that’s all of us!) the Coffeelogue is a space where we get together to learn and socialise, meet some new colleagues and find out what others are up to, as well as digest new ideas over coffee and croissant.

The term ‘Coffeelogue’ was coined by Doron and Darren, to depict both causal and deep space that can occur in short and informal settings.

We hope to learn together and from each other in the form of a casual learning community in a friendly atmosphere with the added fun of late morning coffee/tea and pastry.

(And of course for all you health freaks like us there will be alternatives surprises…)

The added bonus is that we structure it as a CPD event so you’ll be able to count it as CPD hours (a CPD certificate will be provided as well).


10am–10.30am: Coffee/croissant/meet etc

10.30am–11.15am: Presentation

11.15am–12.30pm: Discussion

About Aashna

Shammi and Pretish are both second generation British Indians. Through their own exploration of difference they’ve created a therapeutic space that reflects the rich diversity of the world we live in.

Aashna embodies difference, diversity and works towards an inclusive space where therapists from all modalities, ethnicities, cultures, faiths and socio-economic backgrounds (to name a few) can reach their communities and support each other in doing so. It’s a truly integrative, relational and inclusive therapeutic practice.

In Aashna’s own words:

Aashna was set up in September 2017 and as we reach our first birthday we would like to explore some of the challenges we face in working with diverse groups and supporting these communities. Some of the questions we will explore include:

  • How do we support diverse therapists in reaching the communities they wish to support?
  • What obstacles are in the way for therapists to start private practice?
  • How do we empower diverse therapists in private practice ?

We look forward to sharing this time with you and exploring these important questions, where we can learn from each other in this informal and friendly atmosphere.
