About us

We provide counselling to adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse (both men and women) throughout Fife.

The symptoms that can be generated from the trauma of childhood sexual abuse can be excruciating and life inhibiting.   Common responses include shame, anxiety, depression, anger, eating issues, substance misuse and relationship difficulties.  Some individuals may be plagued by memories in the form of distressing flashbacks, body memories, mental images or nightmares.  These symptoms are all normal responses to trauma and they can feel overwhelming and difficult to deal with.


The free and confidential counselling and support that we offer enables survivors of sexual abuse to make sense of the present in relation to the past.  Being heard and supported can help to ease the pain and reduce the power and impact of the symptoms.

We also provide support to those who are supporting the survivor.

Training, qualifications & experience

All of our counsellors have a Diploma in Counselling. We also accept trainee counsellors on placement for Diploma training courses that are approved by COSCA, BACP or UKCP. Our counsellors also receive additional in-house training on working with the impact of childhood sexual abuse and are offered continuing professional development opportunities.

Member organisations *

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.
