Individual Counselling

Counselling helps individuals achieve this awareness in a therapeutic setting, by allowing a woman to feel safe speaking about their experiences. For many, this is often the first time they have been able to do so. By accepting emotional support from experienced professionals and learning the tools that are vital to overcoming trauma, those with trauma-related issues can make significant breakthroughs and are also able to create a strong foundation for recovery.

Many women who seek trauma therapy suffer the consequences of one or more traumatic events in their lives. Even though many find ways to process trauma effectively and eventually resolve their issues through trauma treatment, other individuals with multiple traumas may require more intensive support. At HSTAR Scotland our professional trauma therapy provides a healing environment for all women in Scotland aged 16 with trauma-related issues.

Our culturally sensitive counselling support entails providing an average of 8 to 18 sessions of therapy. 

Each referred client can receive up to 18* hours of trauma recovery counselling, designed and delivered according to their individual healing needs. We believe in empowering women by respecting and appreciating what makes them different, in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, thought, and national origin.

*Free services are available for Forth Valley residents only (each eligible woman can receive up to 8 hours of free counselling sessions).
