Aurora Health Foundation

The Aurora Health Foundation is a London-based charity that provides specialist therapy services to people abused in childhood.

Founded 2006

  • Mission statement

    Aurora is a Specialist Therapy Centre founded by a survivor/ therapist in late 2006 to provide services mainly for adult men and women survivors of childhood sexual abuse, but also for survivors of childhood physical, emotional and psychological abuse. In addition, Aurora has developed a particular focus on helping adult survivors of female sexual abuse in childhood. Help is also available for people who support survivors, such as relatives and friends.

    Aurora uses its own unique and specialised approach - the Aurora Approach – for delivering its counselling, complementary therapies and support services. Using an empathic approach in a safe, peaceful and confidential setting clients are supported to develop their own strategies for coping positively with daily life, reducing their stress and helping them to recover from their trauma so rebuilding their lives.

    Aurora is ‘client focused’ service which means each client chooses the support they feel would best help them. Some guidance can be provided by the staff team, but ultimately the clients decide which therapies would best help them. The range of 1-1 therapies and/or group support helps to find the right balance of care and support for each client.
