Hello to you!! My name is Kathilia Edghill and I am a passionate Individual, Couples and Family therapist currently residing in the beautiful island of Barbados. I am Barbadian, and am a Christian therapist who has had the opportunity to work with clients in the US and in the Caribbean from varying backgrounds and walks of life. I am an avid Mental Health advocate, and being a Black woman, I understand and can empathize with the struggles our people have when it comes to Mental Health, counselling, and the like.
Being from the Caribbean, I know and see that there is still a very real stigma in the Caribbean, in addition to the stigma we also experience as Black people as a whole, and my hope is to do my part in helping to break down those barriers, bring increased awareness and understanding, and intentionally and continuously creating a safe space where we can all come to connect and heal with one another. I believe that faith/Christianity and counselling can co-exist, and my hope and intention is to show just how true this is, and can be, through being a part of this beautiful field of Mental Health! I love Mental Health, and I love being Black, and I hope and pray that one day leaning into counselling and Mental Health will be the norm, as it should be, within our beautiful Melanated community!
Navigating and taking care of your Mental Health is not always easy, but as your therapist, I will do my best to walk alongside you on your journey to wellness and healing as you seek to become the best version of yourself possible! You don’t have to do this by yourself!
