Lothian Deaf Counselling Service

Lothian Deaf Counselling Service offers free one to one counselling to adults who are deaf, deafened, hard of hearing or deafblind.

Counselling is a confidential and supportive relationship with someone who is trained and experienced in helping people cope with difficulties in their lives.

Counselling is helpful for those who

  • feel depressed, anxious or upset
  • have problems with family and/or friends
  • have lost someone close
  • are unhappy at work or college
  • want to make changes to their lives

Counselling is offered in British Sign Language (without interpreter) and English. A personal loop system and/or communication in written English are available for people who are deafened or hard of hearing.

Anyone who lives in the Lothian, and has significant hearing loss can ask to be referred to the service. Referrals are accepted from health professionals, most usually from your GP.
