Staff Counselling Service

Welcome to the LSE Staff Counselling Service

This is an opportunity for all staff to access support, whether to discuss a problem or situation that is causing concern, or some distress that is taking place at work or home.

The service can be accessed for help following either a work based incident or for situations relating to personal circumstances.  Counselling could be an option for any situation that impacts on an individual and affects their working life and performance at work.

Staff Counselling at LSE is an inclusive service.
Colleagues should feel comfortable approaching staff counsellors regardless of age, sex, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, and religious faith. 

You can access the service in the following ways:

Telephone:  020 7955 6953, ext 6953. If you want to leave a message on this confidential voice mail, please leave a contact number so we can get back to you as quickly as possible.
