Welcome to Families for Life™ Counselling service
Families for Life ™ is an independent, non judgemental and confidential counselling and support service specifically aimed at families or friends who have been affected by radicalisation. We work to the BACP (British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists) ethical framework for Good Practice in Psychotherapy and Counselling.
Face -to- face counselling therapy - Sometimes a quiet space with someone who really understands is just what we need to get us through. With Families for Life™ individuals can receive one-to-one therapy sessions with an experienced, highly-trained counsellor.
Outreach work - raising awareness among parents, carers and professionals of the personal impact of radicalisation on a family through tailored-made workshops, training, presentations to schools, colleges, children’s services and community/faith organisations.
Nicola’s son, Rasheed, 19, from Birmingham, UK was a normal teenager from a loving family who was an engineering apprentice by day and who enjoyed parkour (free running) in his spare time. On Monday 1st June 2015, he suddenly travelled to Syria to volunteer as a foreign fighter for the self-styled Islamic State. He never returned.
