Availability : Edinburgh Wide

Who is this for?

  • People aged between 18 to 25 years old

Description

PF Counselling Services provides counselling and psychotherapy for people facing the difficulties of everyday life.

Counselling may help you if you have a sense that something is not quite right and it’s beginning to affect your quality of life on a day to day basis. Counselling at the PF offers this support in the form of confidential one-to-one session with professionally trained volunteer counsellors.

At the PF you can expect a professional service where you will be given the opportunity to:

  • talk over your situation in confidence
  • reach a better understanding of your difficulties
  • decide the best way forward for yourself

The counselling is offered on a time-limited basis of 12 sessions initially, which may be extended by a further 12 sessions if appropriate, but it is not a long term service.

The PF is a recognised organisation of (Counselling and Psychotherapy in Scotland) COSCA.
