Our longer-term Core Service waiting list is currently closed. Before applying for this service, please check that NEECS offers counselling at a time you could attend. See below
This service offers the possibility of up to 3 block's of 12 sessions, which will be on the same day and time each week. We are unable to say how long you will have to wait for an appointment, but we will offer an appointment as soon as it becomes possible to do so. The more flexible you can be, the sooner we would hope to offer you an appointment. At the initial assessment appointment you will be given the opportunity to:
- Talk about what has brought you to counselling;
- Hear about what counselling could offer you;
- Decide together with your counsellor, that counselling is suitable for you
The length of time you will have to wait depends on your availability. We are not open at weekends or evenings other than on a Thursday.
Having checked you can attend when we are available, complete the self-referral form on the left hand side. By providing NEECS with the requested details we consider this as confirmation you agree to us using them to provide you with the service you have requested. NEECS will only ever use your details for this purpose. All NEECS staff comply with NEECS' Confidentiality Requirements.
