The University of Edinburgh provides a free confidential counselling service, of up to 6 sessions, for all members of staff.


Counselling offers the opportunity to discuss a problem or situation which is causing you concern or distress, either at work or home.

Counselling aims to look at all aspects of a problem and to examine your responses in order to find better ways of managing personal development.
