Group Counselling for women (The Joshua Nolan Foundation)

Availability : Edinburgh Wide

Who is this for?

  • Women who have experienced loss, who are over the age of 18


The Group Counselling is a new service of the Joshua Nolan Foundation, run by one of our charity’s counsellors. The purpose is to support women in the wider community and more individuals with topics of Grief and Loss.

The Joshua Nolan Foundation’s aim is to reduce the numbers of suicide by helping to fund quality counselling sessions for those who desperately need it, while also improving awareness of the issue across Edinburgh.

The foundation is run by a group of volunteers and partner with specialist counsellors based in and around Edinburgh who provide the counselling service for those at risk of, or impacted by suicide.

Two people end their lives in Scotland every day. That’s more than the amount who die on Scotland’s roads in traffic accidents. UK wide suicide is the biggest killer of men between 20 and 49. And that’s even more than cancer and heart disease. Every suicide is a preventable tragedy.
