The primary focus of our Foundation is to provide complex psycho-social, psychotherapeutic and psychological support to victims of torture, traumatized asylum-seekers and beneficiaries of international protection and their families.
Our therapists primarily work in our consulting rooms in Budapest, and pay regular visits to the reception centers and other accommodations for asylum-seekers and beneficiaries of international protection in Hungary. In case it is necessary, it is possible to hold therapy sessions at other locations too (e.g. private accommodation of the patient).
We provide individual and group therapies and work with both verbal and non-verbal methods. Our therapists are supported by trained interpreters. At the moment our services are available in the following languages: French, Somali, Arabic, Persian, Dari, Pashto. Besides, we provide therapy sessions in English with our English speaking psychiatrists and psychologists.
