Counselling & Advocacy
We remain committed to supporting our Communities that enhances their overall wellbeing, through lifestyle choices and our shared activities, not least serving women and children who have no recourse to public funding or are experiencing Domestic Violence. Our popular Counselling, Advocacy, and Therapeutic Services remain over-subscribed from across the Statutory and Voluntary sector, along with self–referrals and amongst Co-professionals.
This unique and holistic model of multiple Therapeutic and Counselling techniques offers management of crises and emotional distress. It aims to explore, enhance, and promote the inner strengths and resources of the individual towards a greater well-being, personal empowerment and focus.
This can further involve Crisis Intervention and Family Mediation and Conciliation and Practical Support in countering domestic violence, family breakdown, homelessness, child protection, elder abuse, racial harassment and discrimination.
Added value to this is appropriate practical assistance and advocacy in accessing welfare rights, housing, social care and community networks, career development, good health and well-being initiatives.
Family Therapy Service Co-production
Having worked closely with WCEN and SWLSTG Mental Health and Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT), Mushkil Aasaan is to become a provider site for Family Therapeutic Services. This is an achievement and recognition of the prerequisite which endorses the need for culturally-sensitive and faith-based mental health services.
Members of our Community have been trained as Systemic Family Practitioners and are able to practise in helping families and individuals. Plans are in place to train a further team of faith-based Community Counsellors in Systemic Therapies with the Prudence Skinner Clinic at Springfield Hospital.
`Talk Wandsworth` help improve access for the Community to Psychological Therapies, and Systemic Family Therapy by providing Well-Being Workshops on relevant topics at our Centre.
