Organisation aims and objectives

We are a group of professionals (psychologists, educators and psychotherapists) who have come together to establish FENIKS, a project which it is hoped will successfully fill a gap in the psychological services available to the Polish community in Edinburgh. The aim of the project is to help those individuals living away from their homeland in facing the challenges which result from immigration. Difficulties may arise in one's work or personal life which necessitate contact with a therapist, and some deeper psychological disorders may surface which require that contact on a longer term basis. The breadth of knowledge and experience of the project members (gained both in Poland and the UK) allows for the provision of comprehensive psychological help for adults, adolescents and children In turn it is hoped that the quality of life and personal well-being of our help centre clients rises to a level sufficient to allow them to function effectively and happily within society.
