ATV’s service is primarily aimed at those who perpetrate violence and abuse. Some ATV offices also provide services to victims of violence and to children who live with violence in the family. Services include individual conversations and group therapy.
All offices follow the coronavirus guidelines and are completely safe to use.
If you would like to receive treatment, you can ask your GP or another professional to refer you, or you can contact ATV yourself. If ATV is not able to provide the help you need, you may be referred to another agency.
Watch this film about contacting ATV:
Most therapists at ATV are psychologists. The staff have a duty of confidentiality and are prevented from sharing any information about you with others without your prior consent, unless there is an immediate risk of someone being harmed. An interpreter can be provided when necessary.
Most offices require payment for the service, but some are free.
ATV is a foundation, receiving funding from central and local government, as well as from endowments and other sources.
