One to One Service


You may have thoughts, questions or concerns in relation to your experiences of adoption.

Our One to One service can give you the opportunity to talk with professionals who are specialists in after adoption work. Whether you are an adopted person, a birth parent or relative, or an adoptive person or relative, we can offer you the chance to be heard in a safe and confidential environment, with trained staff who help you reflect and offer feedback without judgement.

“You have no idea how much it meant to me to be able to talk to someone… such a relief, I cannot thank you enough for your kindness and sensitivity.”

One to One can be provided by telephone or by appointment at the Birthlink office (In case of special requirements, we can discuss alternative arrangements). Sessions are shaped entirely according to your own wishes and needs. There is a fee of £35 for each session, which lasts up to an hour, and we can make formal arrangements if you would like a longer course of sessions.

If you would like to make an appointment, please call us on 0131 225 6441 or email us at

“Patience and insight… offered sensitively. I have learned a lot about myself.”

Naturally we will do all we can to help people cover the costs of the service, and therefore people who are in receipt of government benefits may be able to make a lesser payment toward the cost by agreement.

Birthlink is a registered adoption service, and a registered charity, regulated by the Scottish Commission for the Regulation of Care.

“Praise for your entire staff. They have exemplified kindness, caring, compassion and provided genuine assistance.”
