How does counselling work?
Stacks Image 38902
We enable our clients to share their thoughts and feelings about issues that are bothering them to someone removed from the situation without fear of being judged
ACIS staff and volunteers work hard to create a strong foundation of trust, enabling individuals to open up and be heard
Counselling can provide relief through talking in a warm, honest and confidential setting
Our Counsellors accompany individuals as they work towards their own conclusions, enabling them to move forward and take action

Torry Counselling:
Torry Adult Counselling service is based at the Torry Neighbourhood Centre in Torry, from which it has been operating successfully since 2005. Since then, our Counsellors have been working hard to within the Torry community to become the well established, highly respected service that it is today.

Created in response to a demand in the local area for Counselling services, with help from Aberdeen’s Fairer Aberdeen Fund, the project was set up, now seeing offering around 1000 appointments on a yearly basis. Recently, the service has been looking to develop the Counselling on offer to those suffering from mental ill-health, recently introducing a couple’s Counselling service.

Calsayseat Counselling:
Calsayseat has worked hard over the years to embed itself into the Calsayseat community. Today, it is considered an established and integral part of the local community and healthcare provision for the Calsayseat area.

Much like our Torry project, Calsayseat medical practice was once a major referrer to our ACIS service. In 2005, thanks to the help of the Fairer Aberdeen Fund, it was felt that a dedicated Counsellor situated on site would help address the growing need for Counselling support in the area and has been growing ever since.
