Solace – How we work

Experience (and evidence-based research) has taught us that the most effective way to address the mental health difficulties of asylum seekers and refugees is to provide a wide range of support, which may include a combination of individual psychotherapy, advocacy support, one or more complementary therapies, group therapy or an activities’ group.

Working closely with other organisations to support individuals and families is equally important, particularly organisations that provide support that we don’t, such as GPs and psychiatrists, social workers, teachers, solicitors, or voluntary organisations.

The types of organisations who work with us to help an individual client varies from one person to another.

The more support an individual receives, whether it is directly health-related or not, the more likely their mental health will improve or at least not deteriorate any further.

This systemic approach lies at the heart of everything we do, whether it is Solace therapists working with Solace advocates or whether it is us as an organisation working with other organisations, locally, regionally or nationally.
