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
Kairos Counselling was established by Whiteinch Transformation two years ago and has already delivered more than 400 hours of counselling appointments. We have three 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 now 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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Areas of counselling we deal with
We work with a sliding scale of fees dependant on income.
Less than £10k: £3-£5 per session
£10 to £15k: £5-£10 per session
£15 to £20k: £10-£15 per session
£20 to £30k: £20-£25 per session
£30 to £40k: £30-£35 per session
Over £40k: £35+ per session
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.
