The service is confidential and provided by a team of professionally trained volunteer counsellors.

All our counsellors have postgraduate diplomas in counselling, and are members of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and/or COSCA (Confederation of Scottish Counselling Agencies). They also receive mandatory training in equality and diversity, including institutional racism. GREC has been an organisational member of COSCA for many years.

Some of our clients need to work with an interpreter in the counselling session. This service is also free.

Counselling sessions usually take place once a week and last for one hour. Online and telephone sessions are available.
