About us

Waiting List is now closed

ARKORDIA is currently going through a period of reconstruction and change. The waiting list is closed for the immediate future. Unfortunately we will not be taking on any new clients meantime.

Arkordia is an Edinburgh based service of experienced and fully qualified therapists. We offer low cost psychotherapy and counselling services to those on low incomes who live in the Lothians. A unique charity, our skilled team of volunteers are committed to the highest standards of safe and accountable practice.

All are welcome regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity.

The word Arkordia has its roots in the Greek word “kardia” meaning heart, and the word “ark” which implies shelter and refuge. The combination of these two words embraces the philosophy of Arkordia. Our intention is that counselling, psychotherapy and creative therapies offered are from the heart and provide a safe place for people to grow and become more themselves.
