Psychological counseling

We offer psychological counseling services in support of victims of domestic violence, women and child witnesses, to help them regain control over their lives.
Domestic violence is different from other types of violence because it happens “behind closed doors” with everyone’s tacit consent.
Psychological counseling is provided by a therapist psychologist, having relevant experience in counseling women and children victims of domestic violence. It is offered in several forms:

  • individual counseling
  • family counseling (mother-child)
  • group counseling
  • parenting education sessions
