Scottish Families Affected by Alcohol and Drugs are carrying out a survey in conjunction with the University of Edinburgh.

The main purpose of this study is:

 to explore the impact & harms experienced by families/close others of those who use alcohol and/or other drugs
 to promote discussion and add knowledge about how this issue affects families/close others & what services can do for the affected persons.
 to use the information to engage with the wider community, policy makers and health professionals involved with implementing alcohol and/or other drug
strategies in Scotland.
We are looking for people to take part in the 15 minute telephone survey who have been affected by a loved one’s substance use. The questions mainly relate to the person’s emotional wellbeing.

Once all the questionnaires have been completed they will be analysed. This will give us important information to explore the impact & harms experienced by families/close others affected. This will give Scottish Families an evidence-base and it is hoped to lead to further funding and projects in order to continue to and give support in Scotland.

If you know someone would like to take part in the survey please contact Kate on 0141 221 0544 or to find out more, and arrange a time suitable for you for a call back.

This is an opportunity to join a group of private practitioners in Greater Glasgow to start a valuable network for Counsellors. The idea is to create an environment for mutual support as well as further professional development. There will be a space for discussion and reflection on topics group members feel strongly about. It can be a space for signposting to each other interesting articles, books or websites. Another important aspect is to share our experiences of being a private practitioner in the counselling world, the rewards but also the challenges that come with the territory.

Possible Venues: Consulting room in Paisley at the Abbeymill business centre or private home

My counselling approach is Person Centred, I qualified in 2009 and I am a Registered member of BACP.

I am situated between Perth and Stirling and I am willing to travel if it is helpful.

Participants needed
My name is Elaine Weir.
I am conducting research into sexual attraction in person centred counselling relationships as part of my Counselling MSc at Strathclyde University.
I am looking for counsellors to take part in one to one interviews.
To be part of this study you must be a person centred counsellor either qualified or in training, and a member of a governing body who has been sexually attracted to a client but hasn’t EVER taken it any further.
Interviews will last about an hour and there will be an opportunity to debrief afterwards. There will also be an opportunity to speak to an independent counsellor after the interview if any participant feels they need extra support after speaking about this.
Anything shared will be treated with the utmost confidentiality and any identifying information will be removed from the data that I collect.
If you are interested in taking part please contact me at for more information.
