Introduction to Edinburgh Counselling Agencies List

The Edinburgh Counselling Agencies list exists to make the process of finding suitable counselling support easier and less stressful. It can help people find counselling appropriate to their needs, their locality as well as what they can afford. The list also highlights the likely time that someone might be expected to wait until they can be seen. It also lists a contact name at each respective agency. Please send us feedback about any information that is out of date, or any suggestions to make it more helpful.

At CrossReach we offer a dedicated workplace counselling programme called Confidential Conversations.

If you’re an employee: Confidential Conversations offers you a way to access professional and impartial counselling in a neutral, private setting. You can choose weekly one-to-one counselling sessions, or external supervision here.

We assess a person’s needs to decide if we can offer care and support. We have to give priority to people who are at most risk.

We use eligibility criteria. These let us work out how serious the risk is of you losing your independence if your needs are not met.

We will discuss what support you need if your safety and independence are at high risk. For example, you may be unable to carry out essential personal care tasks, such as bathing and dressing.

Where the risk is lower, we will give you information and advice. This will be the case if you are having some difficulties but can manage most aspects of daily living.

We will need to meet with you to discuss your needs. We will arrange to meet with you in your own home.

Our goal is to make the process of finding a counsellor easier for clients by offering a three-step booking system, that involves a "matching tool" in which we ask a series of questions that will lead you to a counsellor that suits you. We believe that finding a counsellor should be simple, especially if you are in a difficult place when searching for one. The world of therapy can be a bit daunting if you don’t know what to look for, so we want to help.£35-£65Some of our counsellors do have enabled access, this will be stated in their profiles. All of our counsellors update their availability monthly, there is currently no waiting list if a counsellor is currently unavailable, it would be a case of re-visiting the website monthly to check availability for that particular counsellor. info@talkandgrow.org
