We provide a wide range of free, confidential services, including work with families, young people, individuals and couples. We work with New Routes, which provides a mentoring service for young male prolific offenders on short-term sentences, and then on release in the community. Counsellors go out to the outer isles and Stromness, as well as having an office in Kirkwall. Potential clients can self-refer, however GPs frequently do make referrals. We are a COSCA Recognised Counselling and Counselling Skills Organisation. All of our alcohol counsellors are accredited by Alcohol Focus Scotland. We also work to BACP standards.
