Healing for the Heart is a small charity based in Glasgow which deals with emotional and mental health and wellbeing. We provide high quality counselling at no cost to clients who need it, but we ask all clients to make donations if they are able to do so. Working from comfortable premises in Whiteinch, Glasgow, we offer clients a safe space in which to process both past and present issues. We use various models in our work, including person centred, psychodynamic and CBT techniques, as well as resource based models of therapy. We regularly work with trauma and abuse survivors.
As well as client work, we also offer supervision to qualified and student counsellors.

We operate as a social enterprise, using income from those who are earning and can afford to pay to part fund the costs of those on low income. It costs around £20 per session to deliver the service and we also have a 'pay it forward' facility where those who can afford to pay can pay for someone who can't.
