NEECS is a unique and very well run centre. I really appreciate the invaluable support I have had through challenging times. My counsellor was brilliant and gave constant unwavering support. 

Welcome to North East Edinburgh Counselling Service.  We have been here since 1995 providing counselling for the local community.  Our services are available to anyone from the age of 16 living within our catchment area of North East Edinburgh. Further informaton on each service can be found via the 'counselling' link.

  • Thursdays: 2.45pm to 4pm only at this time as we remain unable to accomodate new clients for our 5.30pm and 6.45pm appointments, as the current list for these particular times is so long

We are unable to say how long the waiting times are, this is dependent upon clients' availabilty.
