Kingdom Abuse Survivors Project
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
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.
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.
