Feminist therapy is “a person-centered, politically informed model that positions treatment within a cultural context.” This website talks about the principles of feminist therapy, who might benefit from feminist therapy, and how therapists can bring feminist strategies into their practice.

Feminist therapy was developed in response to the many challenges women have faced throughout history. The understanding that women may experience mental health issues as a result of psychological oppression is a core concept of feminist therapy.”
