Certain cultures emphasise being emotionally reserved or being selective about sharing personal concerns. Counsellors need to determine whether the assumptions they have made about the nature and functioning of therapy are appropriate for culturally diverse populations. Clearly, effective counselling must take into account the impact of culture. Since culture is quite simply the values and behaviours shared by a group of people, we should understand that culture does not refer only to an ethnic or racial heritage but includes age, gender, religion, lifestyle, physical and mental ability and socioeconomic status.

Intercultural therapy enhances existing practices of therapy. It is based on the relationship between the client and the therapist, and in this relationship we emphasise acknowledging and working with difference. Kareem and Little wood (1992) cite the example of Victoria who, when consulting a white woman therapist because she had become depressed and feared that she was going mad, was made to feel that issues of race were essentially her problem. Whenever she tried to bring up anything relating to her feelings about being black, the therapist always interpreted this as a projection of her inner chaos into the outside world.
