Specialised guidance


Legal advice, psychological and family counselling for individuals and families (regardless of income) who are experiencing difficulty and need help with the problems they may be facing in their lives.

The type of legal advice involves sharing information about legal responsibilities in family and custodial law, social safety, and tenants' rights. Psychological counselling consists of diagnosis, profiling and therapy. Family counselling addresses the dysfunctions that are widely understood to occur within families, including problems with educating children and young people in biological and foster families as well as problems with looking after mentally deficient people as well as family therapy.
