Gemma's Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub.

At YAMS we want to help you feel safe. CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE.

In light of the current circumstances and following government guidelines, we have been forced to adapt our services. This includes the closure of our drop-in service and cancellation of our therapy activities, except for weekly Hypnotherapy and Distance Reiki. This may change as the situation continues to develop. 

Instead we are in the process of operating more Chat Cafe's and offering support via telephone and Zoom.  Please message us on Facebook: @YouAreMySunshineYAMS or email us at to arrange a 1:1 support session.

Have a particular life obstacle you’re trying to overcome? Sometimes, seeking help is the best way to put things into perspective. At YAMS, your well-being and mental strength is our number one priority. We will guide you through all of life’s challenges with the attention and care you deserve.

Our Mission: To raise awareness through education and provide support for those experiencing or affected by mental ill health.

Personalised Support and Guidance

We implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among our guests and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. Since opening our doors in 2018, we have provided people across Scotland a wide range of mental health services. From small scale circumstances, to traumatic experiences - our services are personalised to suit everyone’s needs.



It's Good To Talk

Our 1-1 private counselling sessions take place in a safe space where our BACP Qualified Counsellor will support you through your individualised treatment journey. Counselling sessions are free through YAMS. Once you have dropped into our hub and spoken with one of our trained volunteers, you can be referred onto our counselling team if required.

Here For You

Our trained volunteers are there for you to drop in and speak to 1-1 over a cuppa about any of lifes problems. Maybe you'd rather sit at the peer support table and chat in a social environment or take advantage of a quiet corner and a book from our feel good library.



Body and Mind Care

We offer free Reiki in our private Relaxation Therapy room. Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being. Sign up for a reiki session by dropping into our hub and book a session for that night.
