We are excited at the prospect of welcoming a new treasurer as we take Scotland’s longest established relationship counselling charity forward in the novel environment created by Covid19. We responded to the initial Covid19 lockdown by migrating counselling to video and phone platforms for clients who would previously have met their counsellors face to face. Since then, our expertise in distress- and trauma-informed support counselling has enabled our counsellors to help people not only with their relationships but also to manage personal challenges presented by Covid19 and ongoing uncertainties which impact on those relationships. These extraordinary circumstances also necessitated changes in where and how Bright Light’s staff work. We are, in that context, in the process of implementing a revised staffing structure. We anticipate that the year ahead will be one of meeting ongoing challenges but also of identifying and pursuing new opportunities as we develop a new strategic plan and grow our virtual and phone counselling services. We also look forward in due course to resuming face to face counselling.
