Quiet Waters purpose is to advance the mental health and promote the wellbeing of families and individuals, enabling them to overcome their personal, relational and spiritual difficulties; enhancing their ability to cope with bereavement, trauma and loss.
We provide counselling and listening services:
– counselling for both individuals and couples struggling with personal and relationship issues, past hurts and present problems.
– bereavement support provides listening support for those suffering from loss, this can be complicated by loss through suicide, murder or multiple deaths.
– pregnancy services for women whose pregnancy has become a crisis and for those experiencing difficulties following termination.
– prison bereavement support service at both Addiewell and Cornton Vale prisons.
– training courses/workshops on listening and counselling skills
All services are delivered by a team of suitably trained volunteers managed by our Practice manager. Our training requirements are different for our counsellors and our listening volunteers. The former are members of an appropriate professional body either the Association of Christian counsellors, Counselling and Psychotherapy in Scotland (COSCA) or the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). As an organisation we are members of the BACP and operate within its ethical framework.
Following the Scottish and UK Government guidance, Quiet Waters staff are working remotely. We are still available for contact and information but there may be a slight delay in responding to your contact as both staff work part time. If you call our office number above, this will direct you to the appropriate member of staff.
