Guidelines for Working Therapeutically with Survivors of FGM

Magool Team

An important new resource for professionals who support survivors of FGM has been published.

The guidelines were co-authored by Magool founder Dr Leyla Hussein OBE who commented, “This guide will not just ensure psychotherapists are educated on how they support and work with FGM survivors in therapy, it will also safeguard women and children from all forms of harm and help women to reclaim their bodies without judgment or shame.”

The guidelines are freely available and can be downloaded at
