Nepal House Kaski (NHK) is unique in the work that they do with children, youth and families. In a country riddled by poverty, natural disaster, political unrest and high rates of abuse, our therapists provide a safe haven and hope for healing for those they work with.
NHK’s therapists use a combination of traditional healing practices such as ‘mindful sound’ and breath meditation, along with evidence based western approaches such as play, art and trauma focused therapy to effect change in their clients.
Many of the orphanages in Pokhara rely on our services (Find out more). They have seen dramatic positive changes in the traumatized children they have referred to NHK. They also rely on NHK to provide training to orphanage staff to better support these children. NHK is seen as a resource where children will get skilled mental health treatment based on the child’s needs.
Whether it is in individual or group counselling, the children seen by our therapists can be sure to be greeted with respect, and to be held, perhaps for the very first time, in an environment of safety, skill and hope so necessary for healing of trauma.
