Subtleties of Therapy with The Tena Therapist The Subtlety of It

    • Society & Culture

Family & fragility. Tigist Kebede (@thetenatherapist) is a therapist based in Naarm (Melbourne). Friends, it’s been a tough few years in the panasonic and life in general, whew! Therapy is something I’m very grateful for. Tigist and I talk about everything from decolonising therapy to seeing your clients at community events. 

We talk about seeing therapy as a service, how eldest daughters in immigrant families deserve the world, how proximity in small minority groups affects therapy, white supremacy in the mental health field, seeking out a therapist with similar identities to you, anti-Blackness in the mental health & medical field, navigating family members/community members who don’t go to therapy (but probably should), breaking generational cycles, Black burnout, how therapy can help us all + much more!

There’s something for everyone here - whether you’re looking for a therapist, are currently in therapy, or hope to be. Tigist is fun and beautifully honest - bringing us structural critiques and weaving in her own stories and vulnerabilities. 

Sending love and tenderness your way!!

The Subtlety of It is recorded and produced on the stolen land of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation. I pay my respects to the Ancestors who protect this sacred land and live and speak through community members. I pay my respects to Elders and community members who are the ongoing custodians of this land and pass on knowledge through generations. Sovereignty was never ceded. This land always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
