Community Chaplaincy Listening Scotland

Spiritual Care is core to Person Centred Care and seeks to place individuals, patients, staff and carers, at the centre of health and wellbeing. The telling of our story helps to bring both meaning and purpose to our experiences, and listening to such stories is the significant patient centred therapeutic activity.

The Community Chaplaincy Listening service, through active listening, seeks to build resilience and enhance wellbeing; allowing individuals to tell their story in the presence of those who have particular spiritual expertise. Healthcare Chaplains help individuals to explore questions and seek meaning in their story as they try to deal with life and its transitions. The Listeners do not have the answers, but take seriously the questions people are asking and can often help the individual 'hear' what they are saying themselves. This enables people to discover their own way forward which o­ffers the potential for transformation and change - thereby supporting positive self-management and promoting wellbeing.
