Welcome To Nubia Wellness and Healing

We Specialise in African Centred approaches (Black Psychology) to improving emotional well-being.

What is healing?

‘Healing is the work of inspiration not manipulation’.



‘If we healers are to do the work of helping to bring our people together again, we need to know such work is the work of the community.  The work of healers is the work for inspirers working along and steadily, a group that grows over the generations, till there are inspirers, healers wherever our people are scattered, able to bring us together again.’
Ayi Kwei Armah
The Healer (1979).

What is an African Centred Approach

This is an approach to therapeutic healing which realises people of high or higher skin pigmentation (originating in Africa) are significantly different to those of low skin pigmentation (more recently originating in Europe) in terms of:

  • the effects on the body, mind and spirit of the properties of the chemical Eu-melanin (which causes dark skin pigmentation found in the Afrikan diaspora)
  • definition of a well functioning Afrikan personality (opposed to sub-optimal functioning)
  • how society responds to Eu-melanin (people of high skin pigmentation)
  • origin
  • spirituality
  • often hidden knowledge of self
  • culture and
  • political/ economic status.

It begs the question, can we fully solve our problems using the same concepts which placed us there?

African Centred Training

What is African Centred?  To be African centred is to incorporate the very best of African thinking, practices and culture to enhance our wellbeing. Transformation using such tools is necessary particularly for those of African ancestry. High pressure or toxic work, education and living environments can be an everyday intergenerational living hazard.   
There is a dearth of high quality African centred personal mastery workshops in the UK.  Hence this workshop, which is aimed at counselors, psychologist, therapist, trainees, students etc.  

What workshop participants say

Just some of the comments from previous attendees

“I thought there was a great balance between the application of theory in a professional setting, but also how this could be used for personal development. It was also a very open, warm and welcoming event. I also liked the originality of the context, I had never heard of those theories and models and I felt like I had learned valuable new material”.

Course Attendee, Manchester

“I enjoyed the Adinkra Symbols activity the most, and also the Libations and spending a day with like minded proactive brothers and sisters.
I would like to offer my sincere thanks to you Erica, so much has been learned and it’s just a scratch of the surface. Please keep me informed of future events. Blessings and ancestral guidance for your future endeavours! ”
Trainee Psychotherapist

“Many thanks Erica, and particularly for your passion and enthusiasm and commitment, which is so desperately needed within the context of Black psychologists in the UK.”
