This is an important service, and I would recommend it, but there needs to be more funding for mental health, in order for the service to be more accessible.

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.


The safety and wellbeing of the people we support, as well as our staff and volunteers is our priority.
