Hope counselling was established in May 2012 when a group of counsellors were inspired to set up a new counselling service offering Integrative counselling, a style of therapy which was not available elsewhere in Aberdeen.
Several members of the management team have a background in the health service (Drs Tricia Kiehlmann and Lesley Stewart are former GPs) and all are active members of local churches with a heart to help those in distress in their community. They bring an understanding of the needs of clients from medical, social and christian perspectives, and manage the service with the oversight of the board of trustees.
