The Service is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

The Staff Counselling Service is not currently able to operate from Moray House Lodge and so we are not able to offer face to face appointments.  We will endeavour to contact any clients who are using our services.  Please note that messages left on our answerphone are not being monitored during this time.  Any urgent enquiries can be made by email staff.counsellor@ed.ac.uk.
