South Lanarkshire Recovery from Abuse and Trauma
We believe that childhood abuse should not be allowed to cloud the rest of a child's life.
Our local services help children to heal and their families to recover from abusive experiences.
In South Lanarkshire we work with families of children who have been referred for counselling to the children and young people’s counselling service. Families are identified by the children and young people’s counselling service.
Our staff undertake a full assessment of each family, working with the parents/carers and exploring their own needs and their understanding of the counselling process as well as their capacity to support their child throughout their counselling journey. We support the family members and help to establish a shared understanding of the issues and an agreement about the way forward.
