Individual counselling

A wide range of specialist practitioners provide individual therapy to clients at Freedom from Torture.

Freedom from Torture clinicians work with survivors to find the right approach for their specific needs, ensuring that the treatment follows the wishes of the client. Psychotherapy, which emphasises the relationshp between the therapist and the client, is more relevant for clients who have multiple trauma.
