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.
Training, qualifications & experience
Healing for the Heart was established five years ago and has delivered thousands of counselling appointments. We have a team of experienced, qualified counsellors currently working with us who are all qualified to at least Diploma level in counselling. We are experienced in working with a range of issues including anxiety, depression, grief/loss, family difficulties, and abuse. Our counsellors all pursue their own particular fields of expertise and interests which include trauma and also supervision.
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.
Areas of counselling we deal with
We provide our service for free but ask all our clients to make a donation if possible for someone else's sessions, as a way of 'paying it forward'.
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 us around £40 per session to deliver the service.
