Kinharvie Institute Celebrates 20 Years in Glasgow

By Martin Pearson, 05-Jun-2014

On 16th May, we celebrated our 20th birthday in Glasgow with cake and bubbly. 

We began our operations in Glasgow in 1994 as an extension to Kinharvie House, our residential centre in Dumfries. At the time, there was increasing demand for bringing the support we offered at Kinharvie House to people’s doorstep in the city. After surveying demand, Glasgow's West End was found to be the favoured location with our clients at the time and we took up residence at 49 Dowanhill Street where we are still based today.


Much of the activity of the Institute in the early years was focused on providing counselling and counselling training, making a significant contribution to establishing the field of counselling in Scotland. As counselling became more available, we made the decision to concentrate our efforts on making interventions at an organisational and system level, which have far greater impact.

In 2008 we completed our counselling services to further develop the organisational work which we continue today.

We would also like to celebrate this milestone with our friends and clients. As such, throughout October 2014, we will be organising events to celebrate with you. Keep your eyes peeled for more details!
