Clear Thinking Scotland join the UK SAYS NO MORE campaign

In order to tackle domestic violence and sexual assault, we must engage people and organisations all throughout the UK. That’s why we’re over the moon to welcome Clear Thinking Scotland as an official partner of the UK SAYS NO MORE campaign!

Clear Thinking Scotland has evolved from the growing need for quality, caring and professional counselling and pastoral care for everyone. As a Community Interest Company, their goal is to offer and care and support to those in their community, for the community.

Here’s a little more about them:

About Clear Thinking Scotland

All over Scotland, people are in need of someone to talk to and sometimes, a problem or issue is too great or personal for friends and family to help. We have identified the need for an affordable counselling and pastoral care service for the local community. That is why we at Clear Thinking Scotland have a variety of talking and listening therapy services available to help you.

We work with a strong Christian Ethos, and our “Clear Thinking” focus is providing quality, professional care and support for our clients throughout Glasgow and West Central Scotland.

Our service allows individuals who have experienced some sort of stressful, painful or challenging episode in their lives to access appropriate community counselling or therapies, with the intention of supporting them to regain their independence and reintegrate back into their families, friends and the wider community.

All of our services are personal and individually tailored to your needs, irrespective of your personal beliefs. Remember – no problem is too great, no issue is too small.

Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland, discussed the current state of mental health provision in Scotland and learnt about the services Clear Thinking Scotland are providing for the people of Glasgow & Lanarkshire.

Our Services

Clear Thinking Scotland provide a wide range of counselling, pastoral and training services to those in the Glasgow, Kilsyth and Cumbernauld areas.


At Clear Thinking Scotland, we’re able to offer a variety of therapies to suit the client and their issues. We offer a listening ear and professional help to anyone experiencing any range of issues or problems, including depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship issues, loss and separation.We are an affiliated organisation of the Association of Christian Counsellors and are bound by the guidelines of COSCA (Counselling and Psychotherapy in Scotland). All of our counsellors and pastoral carers are fully qualified and accredited or are working towards a nationally recognised qualification. They are PVG cleared and fully insured.

Sometimes, we don’t need counselling but just a friendly piece of help or advice in a caring and compassionate way. Our pastoral care services give individuals the care and support they need.


In association with the Institute of Counselling and Pastoral Care UK, we are able to offer tailor made programmes of Counselling and/or Pastoral Care training entitled “The Good Shepherd”.

Our training programme will allow 5 people from the Gorbals area of Glasgow to undergo 6 months of ‘Counselling Skills Training’, enabling them to develop and engage in personal growth, but also give back to community via a legacy of care, compassion and training.

The hope is that following on from training, the students will be ‘good shepherds’ and become a listening ear for anyone in the community.

Speaking of the partnership with UK SAYS NO MORE, Stefan Morgan, Senior Partner of Clear Thinking Scotland said:

In a country as vibrant, socially inclusive and forward thinking as Scotland, we need to lead by example and not only say UK SAYS NO MORE, but SCOTLAND SAYS NO MORE!
