Trust Afghan Association Paiwand Ltd to deliver free counselling services that respect and work with the cultural and linguistic needs of refugees and asylum seekers. Backed by more than 16 years’ experience of helping people in Edgware, London, and the surrounding areas, we aim to empower refugees and asylum seekers to deal with their psychological and emotional difficulties by seeking therapeutic services and support. Get in touch today to speak with our team.
Some people prefer not to see a therapist because of feelings of mistrust, guilt, shame, or embarrassment about what has happened to them, but also due to the intensity of feelings when discussing their experiences.
As well as setting up a psycho-educational community to help people learn new skills and access support, we also provide talking therapies in Dari, Farsi, Pashtu, and English. This enables therapists to hold conversations in clients’ own languages wherever possible.
