BIPOC, pronounced bye-pock, stands for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. Though there is controversy around putting these diverse groups into one bucket, the acronym is meant to show solidarity between different historically oppressed groups. Living in a Eurocentric society like the United States or the United Kingdom today can bring unique challenges. These include racism, stereotyping, systemic barriers to upward mobility, and more.
A BIPOC therapist is simply one who understands the experiences of different minority groups and how they can affect a person’s development. A BIPOC therapist doesn’t have to be BIPOC herself, though BIPOC clients often express wanting a BIPOC therapist. This is not always possible, as roughly 75% of therapists and counselors are white. Luckily, this is starting to change, albeit slowly. At Destination Therapy, we have multiple BIPOC therapists to match you with.
BIPOC therapy can help clients process their experiences, vent your frustrations, find community and support, and help you live your “soft life.” At Destination Therapy, we strive to help you feel seen, heard, and celebrated in all aspects of your identity. We know life can be hard without the right support, so we support you.
For some clients, it is important to have a BIPOC therapist. This is because they struggle to feel seen or to take down defensive walls around non-BIPOC therapists. Feeling the need to edit oneself, hold back on expressing feelings, or put on a performance are common frustrations. With a BIPOC therapist, you’ll be free to express yourself however you wish, and still be understood and valued
Today, there are directories that can help you find a BIPOC therapist. Notable examples include Therapy for Black Girls and Asians for Mental Health. We have multiple BIPOC therapists at Destination Therapy, and we can help match you with the best one for your personality and needs.
