This includes people who have experienced childhood neglect, emotional, physical, sexual or spiritual abuse.
This service covers all of Scotland. You can call the line directly on 08088 020 406. This is a freephone number, and you can also access the service anonymously if you wish.
The service provides access to a qualified counsellor who will listen and provide advice and information to help you to move forward.
You will work with the same counsellor each time you call. Sessions last for up to one hour and usually take place weekly. You can decide what time of day or evening you would prefer to have your appointment. Calls are free from landlines and most mobile networks.
