Student Counselling

Our services

We offer self-help and online resources, one-to-one therapy, plus as a series of workshops. We can also refer you on to mentoring and physical health support within the University.

One-to-one therapy (Counselling)

You can refer yourself to us for an initial counselling assessment, in person or via email. After this appointment, we can recommend the best next steps.

Email Counselling

If you are interested in email counselling you should submit an application in the same way as for face to face counselling but indicate on the form that the request is for email counselling.

Skills for Life and Learning

We run presentation workshops on a variety of topics. These are mostly held in the Main Library, and are open to all students.

Health and exercise

Our Support for Physical Activity programme can help support mental and emotional health and wellbeing through physical exercise.

Stress Control

NHS Lothian staff will deliver a series of six free classes, delivered in a lecture format so you will not be asked to speak in front of a group. You will learn proven techniques to manage stress and improve sleep.

Keeping calm

A pilot programme from the Student Counselling Service new for Semester 1 2019-20.
