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.

OUR 16-25 AND SHORT TERM SERVICE WAITING LISTS ARE OPEN.

COVID-19 UPDATE

The safety and wellbeing of the people we support, as well as our staff and volunteers is our priority. To date we have followed public health and government advice in our response to COVID-19 with regular hand washing and social isolation if experiencing symptoms.

Today, we have decided to strengthen our response. This means that the way we are supporting people will be changing to make it easier to provide counselling without any risks to health.  

The key change is that rather than meeting face-to-face (unless clients have specifically chosen to do so) for counselling, we will be offering phone support or a video call.

Our Service Co-ordinator will be contacting people directly with updates regarding how we will continue their individual support. If you have any questions, please call 0131 557 4478, call or text 07498 520 377 or email neecscounselling@btconnect.com

We will update this page regularly with any further changes.
