Counselling offers you a safe place to come and talk. The counsellor helps you explore and understand your feelings and difficulties without judging you. They listen and support you to make your own decisions, so you can begin to make changes to move towards feeling and coping better. NEECS has trained counsellors experienced in working with clients on many issues affecting mental well-being.
Before applying to join a service waiting list please check your availability to attend counselling appointments matches NEECS ability to provide them.
Currently NEECS can only offer counselling on Mondays (9am to last appointment 12.45pm), Tuesdays (9am to last appointment 4.30pm) Wednesdays (9am to last appointment 12.45pm), and Thursdays (2.45pm - last appointment 6.45 pm) The Thursday evening sessions are very heavily over subscribed and incur the longest wait for an appointment with NEECS. We are unable to advise how long you will have to wait for an initial appointment with us however please be assured we will offer you an appointment when we can.
Once you attend your initial appointment your following counselling sessions will remain on the same day, at the same time each week thereafter.
