Ashley Fletcher Therapy with Refugees and Asylum Seekers
Clients with a history of forced migration are an increasing part of the demographic of the North West, the largest asylum dispersal area in the UK. Whilst at first sight appearing a discrete and distinct group, they present with the full diversity of the population at large and with complex traumas and needs. Ashley Fletcher has worked for the last 20 years in Manchester taking a Human Rights approach to therapy with migrant communities.
