Insight Counselling

Insight Counselling was founded in 1995 as the National Counselling Service to provide therapy in socially deprived areas of Dundee. As time went on, the service was extended to anyone in Dundee who needed help with a problem in living. Over the years the National Counselling Service supported many thousands of people across all of Dundee.

Community Listening Service

Many of us find it helpful to talk, particularly during stressful events at home or work, or after a bereavement or loss. Telling your story uninterrupted and judgment-free could help you to sort through your emotions. You may then be able to rediscover your strength and find a way forward. The service is available to anyone registered with a Tayside GP practice, to make an appointment call or email.
