Psychological help and counselling service at Polish Association Aberdeen

We are delighted to inform you that because the Polish Association Aberdeen has successfully recruited new staff we can greatly increase the capacity of our psychological services.

Our team now includes mental health nurses, psychologists, psychotherapists, counsellors, volunteer counsellors in training and pedagogists. Taking account of the physical-mental health relationship and contributing factors, the main focus of our service will be to provide interventions that target mental health and in turn positively impact physical illness. By adopting a holistic approach, we can work together to support health and promote wellbeing.

All our volunteers are registered with the relevant professional body, hold indemnity insurance and attend regular supervision which is provided by the Association. All of our counsellors are bilingual in Polish and English.
The new Psychological Help & Counselling and Pedagogy services now offer Cognitive – Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person-Centred Counselling, low-intensity guided psychological interventions, suicide prevention, and support for children and teenagers with Autism spectrum disorder, including Asperger’s syndrome, with ADHD. In our work, we not only offer psychological help but also actively promote healthy lifestyles and healthy behaviours among the Polish community.

Our triage is based on a self-referral scheme and we can be contacted by email at:

More information about professionals collaborating with the service can be found on our website:

We are looking forward to serving and supporting the Polish community in North East Scotland. However, we also accept referrals from other parts of the country.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
