Culturally Sensitive Counselling Services in North West London
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 with emotional hardship. Paiwand aims to empower people from all ethnic groups with emotional problems from Barnet, Brent, Harrow and Ealing, as well as refugees and asylum seekers who came into the UK after the August 2021 events in Afghanistan, through one to one counselling and psycho-education support to overcome the emotional hardship, build confidence, resilience, enjoy life and achieve their potentials. Paiwand also provides counselling service to clients aged 11-30 who are immigrants or have a refugee background, living, working, or studying in Harrow. Get in touch today to speak with our team.
For professionals working with refugees and asylum seekers:
New guide titled "Working with Afghan Sanctuary Seekers: A guide for mental health professionals" has just been published in response to the barriers to accessing support which is trauma-informed and culturally sensitive. Paiwand's mental health counsellor Ramzia Akbari contributed to this resource, which you can find here.
Why Choose Therapy?
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.
