Since 1985 Freedom from Torture has been the only UK human rights organization dedicated to treating and supporting torture survivors who seek refuge in the UK. We do this primarily through psychological therapies but also services which document torture forensically, practical, legal and welfare support and creative groups.

Thanks to the dedication of our staff and volunteers – as well as scores of passionate supporters and funders – thousands of torture survivors have been able to rebuild their lives in incredibly difficult circumstances.

This is a great opportunity for someone with a strong commitment to working in the human rights field to join a multi-disciplinary team providing rehabilitation services to adult survivors of torture.

We are looking for a therapist, who has the skills and experience to work with individuals and groups, offering a broad range of therapeutic interventions, including stabilisation, trauma-focused therapies, supportive therapy and creative activity-based group work.

For an informal discussion about the post, please contact Saba Stefanos, Clinical Adult Team Manager on 0207 697 7827.
