Staff Counselling

What we do

The University of Edinburgh provides a free confidential counselling service for all members of staff.

Short term counselling

The Staff Counselling Service offers short term counselling.  The service offers the opportunity to discuss a problem or situation which is causing you concern or distress either at work or at home.

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

The Counsellors

The University Staff Counsellors are all qualified and highly experienced practitioners.  They are accredited members of the British Association for Counselling Psychotherapy (BACP)  or are actively working towards their accreditation and they abide by the ethical guidelines of the professional body.  Details of the ethical framework can be found on the website:
