About us

We aim to provide a free, confidential service in a safe environment which offers one to one counselling, and group support, to those who have considered suicide, or who have been bereaved by suicide, and who live in the Clydesdale area.

We provide local or home support, offering face to face counselling, that will allow people who are feeling, or who have had thoughts about suicide, to be able to talk to a qualified counsellor.

We also offer support to those bereaved by suicide, the effects of which can touch so many, spouses, partners, parents, children, colleagues, friends, neighbours and many more. This service allows people to talk about their feelings and offers a space to explore their loss and air the questions they have, as well as being able to express their pain with someone experienced and qualified.

Suicide recognises no age, social, ethnic or cultural boundaries-nor do we. Our groups are open to any individual within the Clydesdale area. Hear For You exists to meet the needs, and break the isolation, of those thinking about suicide and for those bereaved by the suicide of someone they knew.

Training, qualifications & experience

All of our counsellors are professionally qualified and trained to Postgraduate Diploma level in Counselling and are members of a professional body (BACP/COSCA) whose Ethical Framework they adhere to. All counsellors also undertake external supervision according to their guidelines. We offer a caring, non-judgemental and confidential service in a safe and private environment.

Member organisations *

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.
