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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
We specifically deal with those people who are experiencing suicidal thoughts or who have been bereaved through suicide only.
Our aim is to offer a free service to those living in the Clydesdale area, however, donations are welcome.
Our service is available Monday to Sunday with a variety of appointment times and the possible option of home visits. By calling one of our numbers you will be able to speak with a counsellor to make an appointment, get more information about the service or receive telephone support. If no one is immediately available, there is a confidential answering machine where, if you leave a message, one of our counsellors will call you back as soon as they can.
