Student Counselling

Student counselling and psychotherapy in Edinburgh and Online

Student life is often a time when personal issues either get on top of you because of the additional stresses of being a student, or when underlying older issues emerge in your new environment. It is not unusual for stress, anxiety, anger, eating disorder, mood disorder, relationship difficulties or self image issues (among many more) to emerge as problematic during the student experience.

Unless stated otherwise counselling is provided under the accreditation of the NACHP.

Lower rate counselling for Students in Edinburgh

Although more universities have some free student counselling provision, usually there are only a limited number of sessions, and this may not be enough to complete your process of development, self awareness or emotional recovery. Stuart provides student support in Edinburgh and online.

What types of therapy are available for students in Edinburgh?

Although therapy for students is usually called generically “student counselling”, Stuart is a psychoanalyst, hypnotherapist and also provides psychotherapy, counselling, CBT and life coaching. The therapy provided is chosen according to the needs of the individual student (or couple).

Is student counselling provision for everyone at university or college?

If you are at any UK University or college then yes. Stuart works with all cultures, religions, genders, relationship types and sexual preferences without discrimination. Stuart in particular has worked with Gay, Bisexual and Lesbian issues for many years.

We do not provide any form of conversion therapy. We are an inclusive provider, and we will work with you over the therapy process to ensure we are the clinically appropriate service for your needs and that working with your needs will be within our competency, and match our service specialisms

Young people who have had depression often relapse and there is no clear evidence of any one therapy method more efficient than others to prevent this, although medication may slightly reduce relapse *. Therefore having a therapy service at close hand is a vital reactive response when required.
