Counselling & Therapies
We provide Counselling and Therapeutic services as well as on going support by trained staff.
We offer a weekly “POP IN” service to clients in which we operate a holistic approach, to spend time in a safe, comfortable and non-judgemental environment.
A fortnightly Women’s group runs at various points throughout the year. /the group offers the same type of environment as the POP-IN, and they often undertake creative activities and invite interesting speakers along.
A fortnightly support group for parents is also available. The group allows people to share their worries, concerns and experiences with other parents/guardians who have gone through similar experiences, if they wish to.
When deciding to attend a counsellor or therapist, it can be helpful to know about the different therapies that we provide. Although all can be effective, you may find one approach more appealing or appropriate than another.
We facilitate and deliver “Safe Hands” training and workshop programmes, which are aimed at all ages and groups to promote personal safety strategies for everyone. We also deliver awareness raising presentations and talks to schools, nurseries, churches, etc., about keeping safe and the effects that childhood sexual abuse can have on the individual and society
Positive Steps is a Lottery funded project within MAF providing a holistic range of support for our adult clients with long-term health problems, enabling them to cope better with their condition and access opportunities within the community. The project delivers four strands of support: complementary therapies, the Hands on Health self-management programme, peer support and individual support.
Glasgow Satellite Service
The Glasgow Satellite Service (GSS) is a project funded by the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland Self Management Fund. It provides support to people living in the Glasgow area, and negates the need to travel to our premises in Airdrie.
This service was developed in partnership with Links Worker Programme to meet an identified need for people in Glasgow. Therapeutic support and complementary therapies are provided to clients, at various locations within the city, including GP Practices where the Links Practitioners are based. In addition, our twelve week self management course (Hands on Health) is delivered, as is a virtual peer support group. Therapy/counselling can be accessed either face to face or remotely, as can the Hands on Health course.
Clients can access any aspect of the service, there is no requirement to be involved in all parts. The only exception to that is the virtual peer support group, this follows on from completion of the Hands on Health course.
The Glasgow Hub is funded by the Glasgow Community Fund, enabling support in Glasgow, for clients who live in Glasgow. Clients can access support, counselling and complementary therapies, as well as our 12 week self-management programme, Hands on Health, either virtually or face to face.
As you will appreciate, due to the nature of the type of work we do, our clients would not wish information on their cases to be disclosed on a website. However some of our clients have given their permission for us to publish their story.
