Hope Park Counselling Centre

Hope Park Counselling Centre offers counselling people living in Edinburgh. The centre is a practice and research and is part of the University of Edinburgh staffed predominantly by students in training.  Qualified counsellors are also available.

Counselling offers time to work through personal issues or difficulties which are causing distress. Your concerns could be around:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • loss
  • work issues
  • abuse
  • relationship difficulties

Hope Park provides a respectful, confidential and supportive space to explore thoughts and feelings about yourself and your relationships. Volunteer counsellors, both qualified and in training, are from different backgrounds and cultures. Counsellors work in English, although other languages may be available.

Donations are asked for counselling sessions, with the amount paid negotiable and agreed with your counsellor. Ability to pay does not affect your access to counselling.
