Method: This was a pilot service evaluation, evaluating the impact of CCL on a Patient Reported Outcome Measure (PROM) with 12 participants, all of whom attended a mental health support group. All participants attended an individual CCL session and received a maximum of two sessions of CCL and a minimum of one. Participants were asked to complete the Scottish Spiritual Care PROM; a questionnaire with both preset questions and a general free text box two weeks after engaging with the CCL. Summary statistics were conducted on the PROM survey responses to understand people's experiences of the service and its perceived personal impact. CCL is evaluated as beneficial by all who received it in this study. It has the potential to increase people's positive outlook, which was a reported outcome from ten people participating in this study. Larger scale studies are required to verify the reliability for the findings from this small pilot study.
