Lothian Deaf Counselling Service

Free one to one counselling to people who are Deaf, deafened, hard of hearing or deafblind and live in Edinburgh or Lothian

Accessing counselling when you are Deaf, deafened, hard of hearing or deafblind works best when it reflects your communication needs.

We understand the barriers that you can face and offer a free, confidential counselling service for those aged 18 or over who are Deaf, deafened, hard of hearing or deafblind throughout Lothian. You will benefit from a counselling service specially designed to meet your needs.

We offer counselling in British Sign Language (without an interpreter) and English. A personal loop system and communication in written English are available for people who are deafened or hard of hearing. This counselling service offers telephone and video counselling.

The service is provided in association with NHS Lothian.

What is counselling?

Counselling is a confidential and supportive relationship with someone who is trained and experienced in helping people talk about the difficulties they are experiencing in their lives and helps to build trust and overcome personal challenges to take greater control of life.

Who are our counsellors?

One of our counsellors is Deaf and the others have extensive experience of working with deaf people and receive professional supervision.

Please watch our videos in BSL on our website for more on our service and on the benefits of counselling.
