FREE 7 week CBT Course


SRC Offices, Bell Street, Glasgow


Tuesday 24, April 2018 - 13:00

Would you like to learn how CBT can help you become your own expert?

Learning to use the tools of CBT can help you understand how your thoughts, emotions and behaviours affect the quality of your life in good and bad ways.

Learning how to use the tools to think differently can help you feel differently, which can help you behave differently and change the quality of your life.

The group will give you the opportunity to understand what CBT is and how it can help you. It can also give the chance to learn new coping strategies in a safe and supportive space.

There will be 7 sessions. Each session will be on a Tuesday from 1.00 to 4.00. The course will begin on Tuesday 24th April and end on 5th June. 

A commitment to attend all sessions is requested to gain the most benefit.

This course is FREE and tea and coffee (and probably home made cakes!) will be provided.

Places are limited to 15 people so please get in touch as soon as possible to register. Please contact to book a place.

Be Still and Know Who I am


SRC Offices, 2/1, 30 Bell Street Glasgow


Sunday 20, May 2018 - 13:38

The Scottish Recovery Consortium 'University of Life' programme is hosting the final seminar by Gerry Murphy. The seminar is titled; Be still and know who I am

This seminar looks at what we think we know about ourselves and life.  Who am I and why am I here?  

  • Is your mind racing constantly?
  • Do you find it difficult to quieten your mind?
  • Do you please others and seek their approval?
  • Are you still living in fear?

If you can identify with any of the above, then this is the seminar for you!

Hopefully, after Gerry's talk, you will leave with awareness and understanding which will enhance, empower, motivate and inspire your life!

The seminar will be from 1pm to 3pm at the Scottish Recovery Consortium office; 30 Bell St, Glasgow, G1 1LG, next door to Blackfriars pub, Merchant City, Glasgow.

To book a place, please email Gerry @ 

There are only between 35/40 places at the Consortium's office, so unfortunately it will have to be first come first served. The price is £3 for the seminar or whatever you can afford.

What Next? (June 2018)


SRC Offices, Bell Street, Glasgow


Saturday 23, June 2018 - 10:00

What Next?

Treatment and Recovery Programmes help us to stop using substances. But where do you go next?

Another “What Next?” weekend workshop is running over 23/24 June in Glasgow.

This weekend is not instead of 12 step or any other recovery programmes, but in addition to them. It is ideal for anyone who is abstinent and stable in their recovery and feel ready or want to address the “causes and conditions” – and how to start the process of healing emotionally and sustain a long term enjoyable life in recovery.

It covers enlightening information on addiction; relationships in recovery; co-dependency and identity; relapse prevention; shame; guilt; anger; boundaries; inner child work, together with creativity; affirmations; creative-visualisation and discussions on childhood roles and family rules and systems.

The weekend will be facilitated by Gordon Esson, Suzanne Burns, Peter Charad and Alan Esson who will engage the group through guided meditations, experiential work and their own healing experiences to uncover the dangers and to expose the hidden menaces, and draw the group into gently finding tools to heal the toxicity of the underlying codependency.

This event is entirely self-supporting and the number is limited to ensure a quality experience.

This means if you’d like to participate, you will need to pay £30 for the weekend at the time of booking on a first-come-first-booked basis.

The costs include facilitator’s travel costs; they give their time and expertise free and the SRC gives free use of the venue. It includes all course materials and a bespoke resource/work book as well as coffee, tea, fruit and biscuits.

The venue is Scottish Recovery Consortium, 30 Bell Street, Glasgow. G1 1LG

The timings are: Saturday 23rd June 10.00 – 17.00 and Sunday 24th June 11.00 – 16.00

For booking and payment details call, text or email Gordon at 07568068223 or
